Last weekend I went home to the cape to visit my family. My younger sister Ally came up to Hofstra on Thursday for a short visit. We left Friday afternoon for Providence. The visit was short but sweet. I think Ally enjoyed coming up to Hofstra (she can’t wait to be in college). She loves the food at Hofstra and seeing “the college life”. At home I was able to see the rest of my family and rest. Ally was busy with soccer all weekend so I had the pleasure of driving her all around. At least I got some Dunkin Donuts out of the trip. For some reason I had been craving a donut for the longest time while I was at school.

 Even though the trip was short it was a nice change. Since I can’t really go out with my cast, and it’s freezing here with little to do in Hempstead,  I decided to travel to visit friends for the next couple of weeks. This weekend I will be going to Boston to visit my boyfriend. I was supposed to visit him Valentines Day Weekend but with my wrist I had to postpone the trip. The following weekend I will be visiting my friend Paige at Umass Amherst. Then the weekend after that I will be going home for Spring Break. March will be a busy busy month but I can’t wait 🙂 Here are some photos from the weekend !

Homework blues

Hi all, I apologize for not keeping up with my posts. After I broke my wrist I had to drop my dance classes (i’m a dance major) and add more academic classes (yuck). Safe to say I have been very busy catching up in all of my classes and unfortunately my blog gets the short end of the stick. Hopefully this weekend I will have a bit more free time! Chocolate is what is getting me through the day. I’m going to be travelling in the next few weeks so make sure to check the blog for exciting photos. Also I will soon be making a schedule of when I will be posting on my blog for those of you that enjoy to follow along! Talk to you soon!

What goes with plaster?

Unfortunately over the weekend during a dance audition I broke my wrist. I somehow managed to get through my entire childhood without breaking any bones and now that I’m in college I broke two at once. I currently have a splint that goes over my elbow and hopefully in two weeks (fingers crossed) I will get a shorter cast. Bedsides the hassle of having a broken limb my biggest problem has been what to wear. One of my biggest pet peeves is when the sleeves of tops get stretched out. With such a big cast nothing fits over my arm. So far I’ve found one of my sweatshirts and t shirts fit. Another problem I’ve found is I can’t button pants. I guess it’s yoga pants and leggings for me for the next month for me. Now I usually wouldn’t mind dressing casual but there are a few events in the next few weeks where I a already know I need dress up. This Sunday I have an interview andlet me tell you, I’m stressed out. Not only for the interview part but also what to wear. I believe that dressing the part is very important. Regardless of what people say first impressions always count. I’m praying that something professional will fit over my lovely plaster accessory. Wish me luck!
