Northern State of Mind

It's no secret that I have a bit of an obsession with the north, specifically the north east.

I absolutely love Sarah Vickers' blog, Classy Girls Wear Pearls, and I'm constantly looking at her and KJP's Instagram accounts. (They're so beautiful!) 

I also love the idea of polo matches, vacationing in Nantucket, and living inside the Vineyard Vines catalogue.

My obsession has reached an all-time high, and I've started acting like *somewhat* of a Northerner.

I'm aware this is not the world's most attractive picture.
To turn and smile is to risk flipping the boat. 
I've taken up rowing. Not kayaking, canoeing, or pirogue-ing. This is olympic-style rowing!

They've had a club two miles from my house for almost ten years, but I've finally had enough free time to try it! 

I've been on Row2k in most of my spare time, and I've looked up almost all of the female rowers on the olympic team, as well as almost all the collegiate teams!

(That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but believe me, I've looked up a lot of stats.)

I'm working on getting some of my sorority sisters into it, too, so that we can start a club team at Nicholls! 

Their first time rowing! (No we didn't actually let go of their oars from the dock)

I've only been rowing for about 4 weeks, but I'm in love with it! The single is my favorite, but I like the double, too. I'm not a huge fan of the four because then you have to depend on three other people to keep the boat balanced #trustissues.

Also, the newest place I'm wander-lusting after: Boston for the Head of the Charles Regatta. I cannot wait! When I finish saving for spring break, #BostonFund will officially start! 

If anyone knows of summer rowing camps for college-age students who aren't competitive, please let me know! I've been searching the internet and can find nothing!
