Summer, Sunshine, and KKG.
On Wednesday, I officially move into my very first big girl apartment in Newport, Rhode Island. It seems strange to me since I’m only 19 and have two more years of college, but it’s the idea of it that makes my heart drop and collide with my stomach. Since when do I have to pay my own rent? Granted, it’s only 100 bucks a week and I’ll be working two different jobs all day every day. But boy, am I missing the days when my dad would give me 20 bucks and I’d get dropped off at CVS with my best friend fully excited to buy something cool. Life was much simpler then and as much as I’ve been wanting to grow up in every way possible since I was 10 years old, I can’t help but feel this is as good as it gets. So even though I’ll be spending the next three months in an apartment with 6 other broke college girl, It’s going to be the best fucking summer of my life. Stay tuned. Newport here I come.

Hi Kyle! I’m Jenna as I’m sure you already know…nice to meet you!
Last week we hosted our annual spring philanthropy called “Kappa Kappa Gamma Dodge-O-Rama”. We were given these tank pinneys to wear for the event as we watched the other fraternities and sororities compete for the win. I proudly wore my pinney that Thursday not only to support me and my sisters but because of the saying on the back. “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”. Even though it’s really meant to reference our dodgeball tournament, I kind of interpreted it on a different level. Whatever life throws at you, you’re built to be strong enough to deal with it. Don’t ever let anyone or anything that is outside of your control affect your attitude or your happiness. If someone wants to bring you down, let them hit you with their best shot. Your stability will throw them off and karma will do the rest.
THE BIRDS ARE CHIRPING THE SUN IS SHINING AND I SHAVED MY LEGS!
If you’re anything like me, waking up at 6:30 am on a Friday doesn’t make you jump with joy. But if there’s one thing that can lift your spirits that early it’s most definitely a sunrise like this one. When I lifted the shades I couldn’t help but smile at the stillness of south campus and the beauty of the view itself. I even stood there in silence for awhile before grabbing my phone to capture the moment. It’s the little things like this, the ones that require no effort that start your day off so much better.

Haha yes I go to UConn!
It’s the first day of spring semester and already I’m sick of everyone’s behavior. You hold the door for someone behind you and smile at them; they don’t say thank you. The older man at the coffee counter taps his fingers and rolls his eyes as it takes you five seconds to locate the money you were planning on tipping him with. What has become of us when we can’t even be patient? Is it too difficult to mutter the words “thank you ” when we’re being treated with respect because we’re just too proud? And to the people who walk the campus truly believing that they’re better than everyone, you are the worst instigators of this distasteful trend.
It also sucks to be on the other side of the situation. You know, the classic scenario when you’re walking about four feet behind someone (they obviously know you’re there) and they don’t bother holding the door for you. Even though they’ve already gotten a good look at the books you’ve got your arm wrapped around and the coffee in your other hand, it doesn’t really matter because you getting stuck in the doorway has no direct effect on them. “Every man for themselves” is their motto, I guess. Well, respectfully, I hope your motto comes back and bites you in the ass.
