Breezy Days: first day

first day

August 28, 2012
So I'm sure you are wondering why Ryan & I have our fingers up for our obligatory "First Day of School" pictures.
Ever since I can remember, my mom would take first day pictures...
but have us hold up the number of fingers that correlated with our grade that year.
Not to make a cute picture or anything, it was all so she can remember what picture goes with what school year.
Clever mom, verrrry clever.

Ryan is holding up an 11 for his Junior year and I'm holding up a 12 for my Senior year!
Hopefully I can graduate by Summer and not be a Super Senior....yikes!

I'm majoring in Family Studies with minors in Communications and Music.
And no, I haven't a clue what I'm going to do with all of that. 
But hey. At least I'll be well-rounded :)

Classes I'm taking this semester:
History of Interior Design & Architecture
Forming Marital Relationships
University Chorale
Advanced Family Processes
Theories of Family Perspective
Yoga

Do you want to know the secret to a fantastic first day of school?
Despite having classes from 9-3 then work from 4:30-10?
I got compliments all day long which boosted my confidence level, and they were an awesome conversation ice breaker which turned into lots of friends in all my classes.
Score. 

How was your first day?

You guys are so cute :) Saw this picture on Instagram and loved it! I'm not going to school this semester (even though I REALLY miss it) but I'm usually the shy type in class. LOL. I give smiles but I'm not very comfortable with starting a conversation ;)

My first day is this thursday. Though it doesn't quite feel like a "first day of school", since I took summer classes. Grad school is not as exciting as undergrad. :\
Cute pants!
