Crunch Time

Had my last day of classes today! Yay! Now just one more final plus a paper to hand in and I am good for the summer. Thank goodness it's been a really long semester but one major positive thing came out of it: this blog. Chic & The City started out as an assignment for my Basic Reporting class. We had a guest speaker come in who created his own blog and made loads of money off it, so basically he wanted to inspire us. My professor never felt shy on telling us that by the time we graduate (for me that's next semester ahh real world!) most jobs in journalism will be obsolete and blogging is the next big thing. While I don't expect to make a career out of it (well maybe not right now hehe) I've definitely taken a liking to this whole blogging experience. I've never actually considered journalism to be on my career path, I was basically taking the class as a requirement for my major. But our guest speaker told us to write what we know, and what I know & love is fashion and TADA: Chic & The City was born. But I never would be having so much fun keeping up with the blog if it weren't for all the great feedback, so keep it coming. I read all of them and am truly amazed that I have some great followers. (Plus I'm an avid reader of all of your blogs too.)

Bla bla enough of my ranting. I'm exhausted and should be studying but instead eating homemade whip cream (yup that's right) and strawberries while attempting to paint my nails. Tomorrow I plan on spending the day with my sister shopping, hopefully getting more supplies to make some new bracelets.
So I leave you with some pics of Lilo and Ali on a Paris balcony, not because I love what they're wearing but because the way Lilo looks is the way I feel: exhausted. But please, could you ever get tired of fashion? I think not!

So keep the comments coming. I plan on keeping this baby rockin' even though school's out for summer.
