To sleep or not to sleep…

So college life didn’t start out as the ridiculously busy thing it has become this semester. Y’all experiencing that too?

Between classes, working, keeping up with friends, family, and a bf/gf time gets to be a precious commodity. Sleep however is a much more precious thing. For my friends and myself, 5 or so hrs is sleeping in. Almost equal to rolling outta bed at noon on a Saturday when you were a kid πŸ˜›

If I can give y’all any advice, for those of you who are going to be or are freshmen, don’t overdue it when it comes to commitments. Clubs are a great idea and being involved with friends and campus activities will benefit you immensely. However, keep your limits in mind before you drive yourself crazy πŸ˜›

Any upperclassman will tell you that they miss the sleep they used to get before then took on so many responsibilities. And it only gets more stressful when you move off campus because then you have rent, bills, groceries, and all sorts of other payments to worry about on top of your campus stuff. It’s a good way to learn what you can handle, and a great way to grow into the you who can make it through the real world. Just try to ease yourself into it.

Questions, comments, concerns?? You know the drill!

College Relationships for Guys

So fellas, myself and most of the girls out here at WT are interested in what y’all want in a girl. And it probably wouldn’t hurt you guys to know what it is we want from y’all either.

I’m speaking purely from experience, my own and my friends. The general consensus is that a guy who can take care of himself and keeps his crap taken care of is a prize beyond measure. Us girls love a guy who’s got life covered, especially since we’re busy working out own out too. Haha! πŸ˜›

Here’s what most girls are wondering. What is it that y’all are looking for? We know what we want, but most guys are completely obsessed with the cheerleaders and the sorority girls. And they can be nice, but those are usually the party girls. Which leaves the rest of us out to dry.

Anyways, questions, comments, opinions. Let me know!

 

College Relationships for Girls

Alright ladies. I realize that most people who write about relationships end up preaching. I hate that and so I won’t do it to y’all. I’m just going to give y’all a scenario, and give you a little insight into what college dating is and what it should be.

So I’m dating this guy. He’s smart, sweet, funny as hell, great dancer, and pretty damn good looking if the looks he gets from every girl who sees him are anything to go by. Sounds perfect right? So did I until I became the babysitter for a boy who can’t get his crap together. Granted not all of it is his fault. Life just threw him quite a few curveballs just before we started dating.

Anyways college guys, especially the small-town ones are so ready for the settled down family life. If you’re ready for that kind of thing, go for it. Myself I’m more up for seeing the world and having some fun first.

So, thoughts? Stories of your own?? I’d be glad to hear from ya!

Buffs over Javelinas

Hey y’all! Been a while since I got any of my adventures up here, so I’ll be playing catch up yet again πŸ˜›

Anyways, first escapade I have to share is the 2 day road trip my roommate and I made over to Dallas to see the WT Buffs football team take on the A&M Kingsville Javelinas at Cowboys Stadium. Definitely a sight to see!

It was such a fun 2 days πŸ™‚ we took off from Canyon at about 9am Saturday morning, made it to Dallas around 2:30pm, and hung out at our friend’s parents’ house until it was time to head to the stadium. Believe me, it was very nice to have a 2 hr nap after a 5 and a half hr drive πŸ˜› Well once we were rested up and finally made it to the right exit, it was time for the real fun to start πŸ™‚

For those of you who haven’t been to Cowboys Stadium, it’s HUGE!!! There were a good number of Buff fans in the stands and we didn’t fill half the stadium. Plus we had the band and the Maroon Platoon to keep spirits high and life interesting. Hahaha πŸ™‚ And our boys didn’t disappoint either. With every play they showed what talented athletes they are, which led up to a final score of 40-10! It was a great night overall πŸ˜€

The following morning wasn’t as fun however πŸ˜› You know the return trip doesn’t bring the same rush of joy that the start of one does. Having one of our band friends ride back to WT with us made things more entertaining, but all the same a 6 hr drive will take it out of you.

So next year all of you should go see our Buff football team play at Cowboys Stadium!!! You won’t regret it πŸ™‚

Sister Buff

So my younger sister has finally graduated high school…how did time fly by so fast?! :O

Anyways she has decided to become a Buff and move to Canyon. So far she’s enjoying her Summer class, though her professor is driving her nuts just as she did me last semester πŸ˜› and she’s looking forward to moving into my old room in Conner Hall πŸ™‚

It’s so strange to see my sister going through her start as a Buff just as I did 2 years ago. Feels like it’s been a life time since I first moved into Conner Hall, met my current roommate, and started finding my way in college. I can only imagine what her first semester will be like…

Meeting her Coordinator and RAs, living with the returning Conner residents (who are crazy and all get out), getting to know the other new move-ins, learning how to cope with the freedom of college classes, and struggling with time management. She’ll have a blast for sure πŸ™‚ but it’ll also be tough to keep everything in order. Especially knowing how unorganized she can be hahaha πŸ˜›

I also can’t wait to share some of these experiences with her. Like her first Homecoming with the Bonfire, the parade,Β and all the activities they put on πŸ™‚ Going to a play or an opera with the Honors Program. Playing Humans vs Zombies with her in the Spring hahaha πŸ™‚ Theres so much to look forward to!

If her Buff years are anything like mine have been thus far, then theres a hell of a good time ahead! πŸ˜€

Where did summer go?!

My friends, it appears as though our summer has gone missing. In light of this occurrence, my roommate and I are organizing a search party to go out and reclaim it. There is no way that August should be here already! Anybody else agree???

Sadly it’s true. Summer is just about over and soon the Fall semester will start. This is the time for all the crazy last minute road trips, camp outs, parties, and adventures you didn’t make time for earlier in the last 3 months. For soon we will be buying textbooks, breaking out the Fall and Winter clothes, andΒ  spending all of our time in class, studying, or working πŸ˜›

Some few words of advice to those of you who will be new to WT this Fall:

1) The upper classmen don’t bite, for the most part. Don’t be scared to be yourself!

2) Be smart! Keep your schedule, go to class, and get your stuff done.

3) Branch out. Meet as many new people as you can. You never know when that connection will come in handy later, or where it may lead πŸ™‚

4) Everything in moderation. Yes you’re finally free to live your own life, but don’t go crazy. Have fun and keep the grades up πŸ™‚

Best of luck to y’all!

P.S. I was serious about that Summer Search Party. If you’re interested, let me know πŸ™‚

Camping 101

Hey guys πŸ™‚

So this past weekend, my boyfriend and I went camping overnight at lake Greenbelt which is just north of Clarendon. We had a good plan, but as life never makes things easy the plan kinda went out the window. πŸ˜›

1) Parental interference caused a late departure

2) I let my bf drive

3) He adventured a bit too far and got my truck stuck in a rain trench :/

4) None of our friends could come help us, and we were too broke to call a tow truck

That was the first 3 hrs of our trip. Despite the stress, we set up our tent, cooked dinner, and made the best of it. Thankfully my bf managed to get the truck out of the trench, and then got it stuck in the sand. A small improvement, but progress nonetheless.

We spent the remainder of the night stargazing and enjoying the warm summer breeze πŸ™‚

The next morning was much better. We cooked breakfast, explored some, and then decided to spend the entire day in the lake. Here is where our decision making turned less than bright πŸ˜› As the truck was still stuck in the sand, we chose to swim from one side of the lake to Kinkaid Park on the other side, which is where everyone else had either camped or parked, in hopes of finding someone to pull us out. About 5 hrs and some ridiculously bad sunburns later we got out of the water and into the truck of our good samaritan.

We got the truck out, packed up our camp, and headed home.

I realize that this story isn’t quite as entertaining since y’all weren’t there, but I hope you will learn from our mistakes πŸ˜› hahaha! May your camping tri[s be far less stressful and have fewer bad decisions!
