Sunday, September 5

just the way you are.

HI! I'm really, really excited that for the most part, my Vlog wasn't hated and that a few of you made it all the way through. I was seriously so worried that it was going to receive no feedback and I would feel like a fool! Haha! I think I may continue to do vlogs but on a smaller scale :) 25 minutes is much too long for even me to record, let alone for you all to watch!
College, as I talked about in my vlog, is wonderful!!! I don't know if it's just being in college or being in a new place that has me so happy. Probably both? I mean, the whole college experience has been a little overwhelming at times, but just being in a new place and not feeling like I'm wasting my life away rotting in high school surrounded by interesting people is SO amazing!
I've started to meet girls on my dorm floor :). It's so funny because for the first four days here, I was silent. I didn't make any attempt to really talk to people because I was so nervous and shy and akward, but at the floor meeting, a girl started talking about Sonny With A Chance and bam! There I was! Talking and snorting and giggling loudly in full scale! So, since then, I've opened up and I'm really starting to talk and socialize!
I miss Niklaas a lot :). He sent me a package with a vest I forgot at home after I tweeted about it along with a letter. I have to admit, as sucky as it is being apart, I'm starting to learn that because of how we are, it isn't absolutely crucial to be in the same place. We talk all the time and on the phone almost daily. The whole being in the same place every single day thing now seems like just a bonus hahaa :). I don't think I could stand being apart for months, but seeing each other every few weeks seems like it'll be just fine.

I didn't really mean to blab about him just now, but that's what happened. Ooops! What I meant to say was that I miss Niklaas and our photoshoots as well! This is one from the summer I've been saving for a while. This was my second experiment with the whole sock and shoes trend. I chose to use patterned socks this time just because they were fun. Hehe. The night we took these was the textbook definition of perfect. We found this amazing (or at least, Niklaas found it) white church on a hill with a beautiful cemetery overlooking the rolling hills! We took pictures, walked around looking at the graves, and cuddled up on a bench at the top of the hill as it progressively grew darker. I ate my happy kids meal from McDonalds consisting of chicken nuggets and fries! Such good summer memories:) We have so much fun!
(his favorite picture)
As far as the rest of the outfit goes...I got this shirt for my birthday and I love it! Everything about it is perfect. My dad thought it was too "risqué" but...ehh! So it goes. I love the detail at the top and my favorite part is the unexpected back. So cute!! I've had these awesome floral shorts for the longest time but didn't get around to photographing them for summer until now. Oooops! They are so comfy...and sooo short. As much as I love the flounce short trend, I have to say, I really don't like the shortness in the back. If they were shorts, it wouldn't be an issue, but everyone always thinks I'm wearing a really short mini skirt! And it's not true! Gah! But no worries, I wear spandex everytime :)
This constant homework, making new friends, living on my own thing has me exhausted silly. So, I think I"m going to turn off my computer, plug in my phone, curl up in bed with a book, and text Niklaas till I fall asleep :)
I can't complain about a thing.
(I had to include this picture because Niklaas told me I had beastly calves when he was looking at this picture on his camera. It makes me laugh. Hahaha)

Love,
Maggie

Amber Rose said...

Sonny With a Chance! :)

I agree with Alex-- I love that you have such a sweet attitude towards it, though I can imagine it must be challenging in that it's so different than what you're used to! You are a beautiful person, inside and out! :)

PS: His favorite picture is my favorite, too.

I'm glad by the sound of it, college is better than highschool. :)

i love this photoshoot location. i need to start finding new and different ones around here, where i live... let me make a wild guess, though, you have your license right? so you probably can just drive to whichever locations you want. :)

I'm so glad that you're really enjoying college! And that you're making friends. I'm really awkward and shy so it was a bit hard for me to make friends but I adjusted nicely and bonded with people over similar musical interests. These photos in a graveyard are really cool!

Darling, you're ADORABLE. Love the socks, as well. College is tiring, but it's amazing and crazy and you'll have lots of fun! It sounds as though you're starting to already!

Ohh! And I can't believe our dorms look similar! I totally endorse you posting pictures of yours, tee hee.

Kimberellie said...

I'm glad you're enjoying yourself so much! It must be hard being away from your man! I'd be crying everyday I think! You are one brave independant woman! Also, I'm a bit of a wuss. ;-) And this outfit is lovely. And no, you don't have beastly calves...it is just a strange photo of them is all...weird angle or something.

Isn't if funny how some photos just turn out strangely? I find that...one photo: total cute me, next photo, yikes. So I try not to take the funny photos personally. Though it seems like YOU are always cute.

:-D

AWW, long distance relationships are hard, but like you said... seeing each other everyday is a bonus! remember that you're dating niklaas for who he is and not for the amt of fun time you get to spend with him!

i'm glad you're loving college! it definitely is an exciting time...

love your hair accessory!

Jen said...

ahhh i just watched your vlog and you're adorable! you definitely need to make more of those. everytime i want to make a vlog i always feel so awkward talking to myself that i change my mind. my roommates would think i was psychotic (not like they don't already think i am). :P

but anyway, i'm glad you're enjoying college life and you're making friends! whoooo! and by the way i'm loving this outfit. the cut outs on your shirt are gorgeous and the flower headband is the perfect final touch!

Amber Blue Bird said...

Thank you so much for your comment today on my guest post for Oh My Darling. It was so sweet and I hope you get to live in NY. Never give up on that dream :)

Alex said...

What a gorgeous location for a shoot. You seriously do pick the best places. Posing in front of your wardrobes like I have to do is not fun!!

Bless your dad for thinking the top is too risqué - I think it's lovely! I like a cut out detail and this is a lot simpler and more wearable than some things I've seen.

You should definitely send me a letter - I'd love it!
