Whats up, so as of right now it is about a month until I move into college. I will be going to SUNY ESF in Syracuse NY, majoring in ERE (aka environmental resources engineering). The summer before college is absolutely crazy, a bit crazier than I expected. Granted I already had a busy summer planned outside of moving out. There is so much to think about when preparing to move out and such, but I am basically ready. I have compiled a list of everything that I personally needed to do before freshman year to prepare to live away from home and I thought I would share it. You never know who may stumble upon my tiny blog and find this helpful :).
So before I get into this I would like to say a few tings, I respect you and your opinion even if I do not agree; I am writing this because this is something I am passionate about and writing is also one of my passions I did more; lastly please don’t come for me, this is creative and not meant to start any arguments.

Highlights from London <3
When a bomb goes off, you know before it blows. That is if you are the one setting it off. But that is rare, most of the time you are not. The fuse is lit, you run, others run because you are running. As the fuse burns up it gets closer, closer, closer to blowing. Chain reaction; all happening because you decided. Was it you or someone else? What lead to that final decision? I for one would love to know.
A few years ago my family and a family who we often travel with, went on a trip to Hawaii! While we were there we visited three islands, including the Island of Kauai, which was most definitely everyone’s favorite. The highlight of our trip to Kauai, was our 26-mile backpacking trip on the Kalalau Trail over the span of three days. If you have never heard of this trail, it winds along the edge of the Northwest shore of the island weaving to and from the coast and into the lush, narrow valleys and canyons. The mountains are absolutely beautiful (this world doesn’t even come close to describing how breathtaking they are) and the views are stunning throughout the whole hike.

A few weeks ago I ordered an EMS® Women’s Feather Pack Jacket and have been using it since. Since I live in a cold climate, I have been getting great use out of it and so far I love it! Before I purchased it I noticed that there is only one review online and it’s for the men’s model; so here is my review and experience with the product. Hope you enjoy!

For the past three years, I have been going to a DEC (Department of Environmental Conservation) sleep-away camp. It is (so far) my absolute favorite camp I have ever been to because I love the outdoors and the environment. I always learn new exciting things when I am there and I love to return every year. (Click here to see my past blogposts about this camp.)This summer of 2016 I will be returning into the program as a volunteer! I am super excited and am already starting to pack when I have 4 weeks before i go xD. I personally love lists and I decided to make a blogpost for those people who do not like them. Here is my list that I have made up over 3 years for what I find the best to take to environmental camp. Please keep in mind that my list is applied to one week of camp. Enjoy!
