I’ll be starting classes up again this next week and I am super excited! I definitely am not a studious person and I have never been very fond of school. But I’m excited for a couple of the classes I’m taking this quarter. I was trying to decide what to post on the subject of “Back to School,” and I came across this tag! I found it on Destiny’s blog, This Girl’s Viewpoint. I liked the questions she came up with and I thought I’d give it a try. So, let’s get into the questions!
What grade are you going into?
I’m a college student, so I don’t really have a grade. But, I will be going into my third year of college.
What are you excited and/or nervous about this year?
Like I said, I have a few classes this quarter that I’m excited about. I am going to be taking Biological Anthropology and I am so excited for it. I really enjoyed the intro class for Anthropology.
I’m also going to be taking Korean this quarter! I need my foreign language courses and I decided on Korean. For one, I really enjoy watching Kdramas and listening to their music, so it would be nice to understand what they’re saying! And also because I think it would be really cool to go there someday and knowing the language would be extremely helpful.
What is your favorite part of getting ready for going back to school?
I don’t know. I’ve always loved picking out new school supplies. I love office supplies for some reason and I love walking through the Back to School aisles in the stores and looking at all the things that I wish I could buy, but don’t actually need.
What grade were you in when you started wearing makeup to school?
I started wearing makeup when I was in the eighth grade. I wore it from that point through sophomore year of high school, but then after that I didn’t really care. I slowly stopped wearing it. Even now, I don’t wear makeup. (Although, lately I’ve been thinking of changing that.)
Where do you get your inspiration for your back to school look from?
I don’t style myself based off a certain person or trend. I’m more of a person who wears whatever I feel like. But, if I am looking for a specific style I usually turn to Pinterest and look up ideas there.
What are your favorite upcoming Back to School or fall trends this year?
I have no idea what the trends are right now! I don’t pay attention to that at all, so I am totally out of the loop!
Where do you like to go shopping for your school supplies?
I usually end up getting my supplies from Walmart.
Where do you like to go shopping for Back to School clothes?
I haven’t bought new clothes for school in a long time. I don’t really go to specific stores and browse. I typically go looking for a specific item online when I need something.
What kind of bag will you be bringing your supplies to school in?
I have a backpack that I’ve been using since my first year of college. I love it. It’s dark blue and it’s very durable. I haven’t had any problems with it the entire time I’ve had it.
What are three non-beauty essentials you have to carry with you?
I need my keys. For obvious reasons. I need my wallet. Again, for obvious reasons. And I always carry feminine products, just in case.
What are three beauty essentials you have to carry with you?
Does Chapstick count? lol
What are your go-to hair products for this year? What is your go-to hair style?
I don’t have a lot of products that I put in my hair. I only use one, besides my shampoo and conditioner. It’s a styling cream that helps my curls look prettier.
My go-to hair style is just leaving it down. My hair is short so I don’t have much to do with it. Sometimes I like to do it half down, half up with a top bun.
What are your go-to makeup products for this year? What is your go-to makeup look?
I don’t wear makeup so I don’t have a go-to look for that. If anything, it’s just basic. Occasionally I’ll wear mascara, but anything more than that is unlikely.
What are your go-to clothing items for school? What accessories do you plan on wearing this year?
I love my Dr. Martens! I have a red pair that I especially love wearing and I try to wear them with everything. They’re very fall-ish, so they tend to go with a lot of the outfits I wear!
Of course, I love wearing hoodies and lots and lots of sweaters in the fall. I got to keep warm! I try not to just wear tee shirts and oversized hoodies in the fall because then I start to get a little lazy with my appearance.
Accessories are not something that I tend to wear. I have the one ring from my mom that I wear every day. Occasionally I’ll wear a bracelet, but it depends on what I’m wearing and where I’m going.
Alright, so that’s it for these questions! I enjoy thinking up answers for these tags and I plan to do more in the future. If you have any that you think I’d like or any tags that you want me to do, leave them in the comments!
If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged! I want to know what everyone is excited for this Back to School season! If you’ve already started school or classes, what has been your favorite part so far? Talk to me in the comments!
