My Experience: Sophomore Year of College!

Hey cupcakes! Since my school year has just ended, I thought I would write about the key things I have learned throughout the year. I wrote about some things I learned during my freshman year (read about it here), so I hope to help you all even more if you will be going off to college next year. :) Let's get started!

1. Sophomore year is even more stressful than freshman year - Last year all of my sophomore friends told me that sophomore year is a lot of stress. For some reason, I chose to think they just hadn't adjusted to college correctly, weren't organized enough, etc. But they were SO right!!! Sophomore year, at least for me, was the first year I actually could study business in depth, so it was a lot harder than my classes freshman year. Also, you have to actually start figuring things out for your future (internships, job interviews, etc.) so there is ALWAYS something going on!!!

2. Your true friends will stick - Sophomore year is a totally new year, so you will lose some friends over time. However, in college you truly will find friends that you will have for the rest of your life! <3

3. Mental health is so important - As I mentioned before, I was really busy and stressed this year. I had to make sure to reserve some time during my week for "me" time so that I was able to de-stress and maintain my sanity. In college it is so very important to stay healthy both mentally and physically.

4. College goes by so fast - I honestly still can't wrap my head around the fact that I am already half way through college! :/ College is amazing, and it feels like just yesterday I was moving in to my freshman dorm. Cherish every single moment and do as much as you can in the little time you have in college!!!

5. A good roommate is everything - My roommate last year wasn't the best, and this year I was lucky enough to room with one of my closest friends. Honestly, a good roommate totally changed my mindset, and I was so much more happy/positive by living with a friend.

6. Don't compare yourself to the people around you - Sophomore year is a weird time where some people are getting internships, some people haven't figured out their major yet, some people are trying to get accepted into a school in Australia to study abroad, etc. Don't sit around and compare yourself to whatever everyone else is doing, just do what YOU want to do! :)

7. Explore what you really love - At the beginning of this year, I thought about all the things I was involved in and made some cuts on clubs that I enjoyed but not loved. This extra time was so beneficial to me, and I was able to explore the things/areas I am totally in love with even more (so don't spread yourself too thin in extracurriculars).

8. You win some, you lose some - I mentioned this in my post "What 2016 Has Taught Me", and I cannot tell you how much this quote helped me throughout sophomore year. College is amazing, but it can also be really stressful at times. It is so important to be able to forget about the minor things that go wrong, and to truly celebrate those things that really matter! :) <3

I am so sorry for ditching you all, but the end of the semester was SO hectic and busy. I am super excited to be home for the summer now, and I have a lot of fun posts prepared for The Chic Cupcake. :D During this short break I missed all of the positive comments I normally get on my blog, and I can't wait to have tons of time to make content that you all want to read. <3 As always, feel free to comment what you would like to read about, and I will write a post just for you! :D

Thanks for waiting for me during this break, and I hope you look forward to posts from me three times a week!

A Much Needed Break....

Hey cupcakes, I wanted to come on here and let you all know that I will be taking a short break from blogging on The Chic Cupcake. School has been so hectic, and I think it is best for my well-being to wait until this semester is over so that I can produce really good content and not rush to get things posted every three days. I WILL be back towards the end of April (I promise), and I hope to improve The Chic Cupcake when I return. Look forward to some great new content, and thank you all for being so supportive throughout my blogging journey. :)

I will talk to you all very soon! <3

Most Likely Tag ft. My Boyfriend!

Hey cupcakes! My boyfriend came up to visit me this weekend (<3), so I thought I would have him help me with a fun tag (and when I say "help" I mean he sat with me and kept distracting me haha)! I haven't done a tag in SO long on The Chic Cupcake, so let me know if you would like to see more of them. :) Let's get started!

Who, out of you and your boyfriend, is most likely:

1. To always be happy? - Definitely me! I am uber optimistic and positive while he tends to have a more realistic take on the world.

2. To forget something important? - Him for sure. Lol - his memory isn't as good as mine!

3. To fall while walking? - Lol me cuz I'm clumsy AF

4. To be the most popular person in school? - I feel like this is a tie... We both can be both social and antisocial, so we know a lot of people.

5. To take care of the other person while sick? - ME; he gets sick a lot more than I do!

6. To get annoyed over small things? - Prolly me.... :P

7. To be impatient? - HIM; patience is not his virtue

8. To complain about things? - Lol we both really enjoy complaining, so I would say it's a tie.

9. To be sweet? - Tots me, I am always sweet ;)

10. To be the healthiest? - Me again, he has a weakness for eating really bad food.

11. To be nice? - We are both really nice, so a tie for sure!

12. To be best at school? - I would say me, but we are both strong in certain areas.

13. To be a good cook? - Lol me because he literally would burn the kitchen down...

14. To fall asleep during a party? - Me because he can stay up until 4 in the morning with no problem at all....

15. To be the best at math? - Totally me, I have a weird passion for math!

16. To cry when happy? - We both don't cry very often, but I can cry when I'm happy if my hormones are messed up :P

17. To be smarter? - We are both strong in certain areas, so I would say we are both pretty smart (however, I have a much stronger work ethic than he does).

18. To buy things they don't need? - HIM; he is the king of impulse buying!

19. To crash their car? - Lol, definitely him. He actually just got his car back from a car accident (this one wasn't his fault tho).

I tag all of you, so comment below the links to your blogs so I can read your posts! Don't forget to follow me! :D
