What I’ve been up to…

I haven’t had the chance to post in a while because my senior thesis is looming, but I thought I’d give a quick update for anyone who’s still following.
I had the privilege of participating in Kent State’s Undergraduate research symposium.

It was hard work, but really fun!
I left before the awards because I had to write a midterm, but I got an email from my advisor a little later, and to my amazement I took first in my category!

I got this cool award and some money I’m going to put toward the two classes I have to take this summer. 🙂

Recently I’ve joined in on Zatchels’ contest in hopes of winning the 12 bags they are giving away. I don’t want to win for me though! I have so many friends and family that have loved my bags and can’t afford to buy one, so I want to win so I can give them to people I love! I want most to be able to give them to my mom, because she’s hard on bags, and my sister-in-law, because she loves mine but she’s a broke grad student in NYC. It would be the most amazing prize to me if I could give them Zatchels for Christmas or their birthdays!!!
Here’s a collection of the pics I’ve submitted so far, along with some closer shots of the makeup for most of the looks:

I’ve made it a personal challenge to post a new outfit every day until the contest ends, so check out my twitter/instagram accounts to see the latest pics!

I also took my new favorite selca ever!

I don’t usually think of myself as pretty, so when I find a picture I really like I get really excited about it! (Which is probably kinda sad, really…)

The only other important thing that’s happened lately was I got a root canal yesterday.

(Yup. I’m that cool.)
It was a super painful abscessed tooth, so the root canal was a relief,  not something negative.  🙂

So yeah, that’s pretty much my life.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a 20 page thesis to write…
