Living in an apartment with a kitchen has its benefits. Although, most of the time I usually just cook frozen pizza or a microwave dinner. After eating those for most of the semester, I decided to make a REAL meal for once! As much as I would like to say that I am a good cook, as everyone I have somewhat of a worry that I will burn the whole place down. I decided to look up on Google “Easy College Recipes” and I found this AMAZING site with lots of good college food, very little ingredients, and it is still (mostly) healthy!
The website is http://www.clarkscondensed.com/recipe/easy-recipes-for-college-students/
I decided to make the Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes. It took about 20 minutes for the meat to cook through and then another 10 for all of the cheese to melt. All in all, it was a delicious alternative to my usual pizza and pasta dishes. Now I have 50 more dishes that I can make! If you get a chance to make some for yourself, let me know how it goes! Hopefully, this will help get you out of the frozen section and into the fresh foods!
This Saturday was another Alvernia Open House! The Ambassadors have to start off their day very early to prepare for the prospective students and families. I’m talking 7AM! Now, to some of you, that might not seem that early. Although, to college students who usually don’t wake up until 11am or noon, it is a challenge. Then we help set up a few things and finally go to our spots to welcome the families.
My favorite part about the open houses is just to mingle to the families before the open house gets started. I love learning about who the students are, how far they came to be here, and what they are looking forward to about coming to college. I was very excited for this open house for one particular reason. I was invited to speak in front of families and students about the Alvernia Facebook and Twitter! This was a unique and exciting opportunity for me because this was the first time I have given a speech to about 100 people! All I could think about before I went up there was as a business major, I should be able to go up in front of a lot of people and give a speech. It’s somewhat of a necessity if I am going to be successful in a job one day. I kept telling myself I know I can do this! With that confidence, I was able to give an amazing talk to the students and parents! Below is a picture of it!
Speaking in front of them just gave me so much more confidence that I am in the right major and can do anything that I set my mind too. I am very excited to do it again! Overall, the open house was a HUGE success, and I can’t wait for the next one!
As some of you know, I work for Aerie which is the Lingerie side to American Eagle. They just came out with a new campaign called Aerie Real! It’s all about being the real you and no retouching on their photos. This is because they are showing that the real you is beautiful no matter what! I am in LOVE with this new idea and I think it could really be a huge deal in the lingerie world of fashion. No more retouching models, natural and beautiful is the key! Here is the link where Aerie gets to share their new look with Good Morning America!
