"i took this out weeks ago for a bit of light reading." "that's light?"

As July comes to a close, I can't help but feel a growing anticipation. As of today I officially have a schedule for my classes for my first year of university. The coming month of August brings with it weekends that will be dedicated to an orientation sleepover for commuter students, shopping for back to school supplies, time spent scouting the campus to find my classes, and lots of fretting about the coming school months. Although I will be a nervous wreck for the next 4 weeks, I can't help being excited. I am about to begin a new chapter in my life, and no matter how scared or nervous I am, I'm also excited for the new adventures, new friends and the new lifestyle.
I feel it right to mention that I am an utter book worm. I love books. I could go days without communication with the outside world, as long as I have a good book with me. I cannot wait to get my hands on my school textbooks. I want to read and learn, and simply take in as much knowledge as my mind can possibly hold. I've committed myself to attempting to read War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy before school starts, although I have a feeling it will take me much longer than that to read it. In the meanwhile I am also reading lots about current world issues in order to broaden my mind and prepare me for my classes.
Since this blog is primarily a fashion blog, I thought I would mention how one of the things that I am most looking forward to about university, is the ability to wear no uniform. I will finally be able to have blog posts more often, and therefore, I will be able to showcase my clothing in a wider spectrum. Plus, I won't feel guilty buying new clothes because now I will actually be able to wear them.

Finally, I know I promised a Vlog ages ago, and I was going to post it but then I realised I hated my answers and everything I said, so I just couldn't bring myself to post it. So one day I will have a good Vlog. Blogger's Honor (like scout's honor).

Anyways, for those of you who are in university or done, how did you like your time there or how are you enjoying your time there at the moment? Any words of wisdom you'd like to pass on?
In general to everyone else, any book recommendations?

Ps. Who can guess where my blog title is from?

Good luck with your classes...and your reading. I don't have any reccomendations except for the ones on my blog, and I don't think you could do much better than War and Peace!

I really love your outfit posts. Very unique outfit choices! I am just starting my blog about being a freshman (it is my first year as well) and would love some feedback. I only have one post so far but more will come as I endeavor through the year to become the epitome of a university student. It would be great if you could give me some feedback and even see if you relate to the posts at all.
Thanks and keep up the amazing outfits!
