SLIDER

On Campus

Tee: Pacsun   Shorts: Macys   Sandals: Target   Necklace: garage sale   Bangle & Watch: Philippines
As most all of you know, I've been enjoying my first year at college thus far. So, I decided to get some pictures of me on the campus! I'm hoping to get some more taken there throughout the year. Although this is definitely one of my more casual looks. Just one of those days where you don't feel like dressing up too much, you know? Kirsten visited me after her school got out and we wandered around, snapped some pictures, and caught up. These was taken during my first week of school actually (eep, I know, already falling behind in blogging), so a little late.



Anyway, yesterday we met up again and practiced some longboarding at an abandoned parking lot. It was a lot of fun! Plus, I think I may have hooked her on the activity now. Haha, we both may be shelling out money for boards of our own before too long. Or as I told Patrick, I may just hold his hostage for a while...



It was funny because as we were messing around in the lot, these two little boys came passing through and one of them asked if he could ride my board around. I said sure, and he hopped on like a pro. Turns out he was a skateboarder, so I told him he was all set for college. Haha, after they left, Kirsten and I exchanged looks and then really pushed ourselves to do better! xD


So that's my goal now - learn to longboard at a good enough level I can use it at college! Right now I'm still worried I'll crash or run people over.
For your amusement, here's a little peek of me practicing in our driveway:



I'm starting to get it! Slowly but surely. Patrick's already talking about how he wants to take me on a longboard date. Haha, something to look forward to for sure!

Maiken said...

haha, I was wondering what is a longboard?? but then found out it's actually the same as skateboard. I have one, to be honest but I haven't used it for a while now. should give it a go when I get a chance :) btw, good luck with it!! at first it seems pretty impossible but it's not actually that bad.
oh and those shoes you're wearing are the prettiest. I totally love them! :P

Taking pictures on campus already... you're brave! I haven't even taken any at campus yet, even though I have a friend who has kindly offered to do so. But these are so fun, I didn't know you skateboarded! YER A COOL CHICK. <3

That necklace is so neat. Is it wooden? A wooodeeen heaaart? That sounds very representational. I dig it.

Haha I don't think I'd ever have the balance needed to use a longboard but on the off note, loving the bright sandals.

Sounds line you are learning to longboard really quickly! :) I like this casual outfit of yours - the necklace is perfect and I like your sandals too! :)

Thanks for your sweet comment on my post - I'm on holiday and blogging from my phone as I didn't want to bring my laptop - had no idea the phone photos looked bad on a proper computer, thank you for letting me know! :)

Marlen said...

isn't it surprising how easy those things are? i always thought that hell would freeze over before i got onto one haha. and that date sounds cute, try not to wipe out ;)

Chezka said...

The outfit is actually perfect for college =) we all get that no-fuss dressing bug sometimes (I know I have)!

That is a great new hobby, the farthest I ever got to skateboarding was sitting on it while someone pushed, haha - cute date idea with Patrick =)

Those sandals are SO cute! I'm so impressed by your sweet long boarding skills. My boyfriend was really into it for awhile and I tried to learn. Despite being a dancer, I have no coordination when it came to the board. Wishing I had kept with it. Good luck, dear!! xx

Aww, a longboard date sounds too cute! That's awesome that you're picking up such a fun hobby (and mode of transportation to get to class too!) Are your sandals from Target?! I had been eying those exact one ALL summer, absolutely in love with them but they never had them my store! Are they comfy?
Happy Friday to you!
