Life Update & Instagram Round Up

August has come and gone which is sort of crazy. It's been a whirlwind, I've turned nineteen, started my sophomore year of college, and am living in my first apartment. (More posts about that coming soon). But basically, my life has done a complete 180.

I've been posting a lot about my life on Instagram, but just in case you're not following me on there (you totally should, @autumnksanders)  here's a little update on what's happening with me!

1. I turned 19!
I talked a little bit about my birthday in my 19 things I've learned post, which you can find here. I spent my birthday at a resort in Mexico, which was so much fun and an experience I'm incredibly thankful for. I posted this picture of me enjoying breakfast in bed. Overall nineteen has been incredibly sweet so far. It's not that I feel any older really, but I feel like I'm wrapping something up.

2. I started my sophomore year.
As of like three days ago, I'm officially a sophomore at my dream school, The University of Texas at Austin. It's kind of insane, and time is flying. This picture is technically this was before I went back to school, but you get the point. I spent my last few days before move in trying to soak up all the goodness that is my amazingly kind, courageous high school friends. In this picture is my friend Emily who is one of the most darling people you'll ever meet and continuously inspires me to be better. Sadly she goes to Texas A&M, but no one's perfect.

3. I joined a sorority.
This is probably one of my favorite pictures on my Instagram currently. After lots of thought and heartfelt discussions with my closest friends, I decided to go through sorority recruitment. Honestly going in I didn't have high expectations, I kept waiting to be stressed, feel out of place, or for anxiety. But in actuality, it turned out to be one of the most fun filled, enriching weeks I've ever had. Recruitment really caused me to dig deep, and reflect on who I am as a person. In the end, I chose to become a member of Delta Gamma, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. And as a fun little bonus, two of my best friends are now my sorority sistas!

And that's where I've been these past few weeks. I hope you enjoyed this fun little update on me, and I'll see you all again on Wednesday for my August favorites!

Until Next Time,
