The First #AskFeistyFletch!
Hello, feisty friends!
Today, I am starting a new type of post on this site... a Q & A session! I posted on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook asking for different questions about absolutely anything! Today, I'm going to be answering some of the great questions I got. For privacy reasons, I am not going to be revealing the names of those that asked the questions. Alrighty, here we go:
"What has been the toughest challenge in transferring from high school life to college life?
I'll be quite honest... this question is hard for me to answer. That is because personally I was very ready for college. I was ready for the independence, the challenges, and the chance to make a name for myself. However, I know that there are some people that might not be ready for the transition, and I definitely understand why. I will say though my hardest challenge has been using my time wisely. In high school, you have class from 8 - 3 every day and then you go to your extracurriculars and do your homework. In college, you have classes scattered throughout the week and a lot of free time in between. I'm still getting the hang of it, but it's important to use each minute wisely.
"How'd you get so fabulous?"
I don't consider myself that fabulous, but I would definitely say if you are proud of who you are and what you do, then you will seem more fabulous.
"What's a good way to stay alert during class?!"
I honestly have not perfected this yet. I would definitely say make sure that you take classes that you are genuinely interested in! Then, you will WANT to be alert. If you are stuck in a class you don't like, focus on organizing and making your notes look nice. It will keep you occupied while you are listening to the lecture! (DON'T SLEEP IN CLASS!)
"What's a short explanation for how to get an Instagram aesthetic going?"
I would say take a filter or photo type and stick with it. For example, my new friend Lindsey Lanquist, editor in chief of the The Edge Magazine of Elon University, makes all of her pictures black and white. It looks GORGEOUS. My other friend Maggie Griswold, social media editor of the Edge Magazine, makes all of her photos in a circle. Both of these are awesome ideas and just make the whole account a piece of art.
"What is your favorite musical?"
I haven't seen as many as I want, but I would definitely say Wicked is my favorite. I know that is everyone's favorite, but I have a special place in my heard for anything related to the Wizard of Oz!
"What have you done that qualifies you to call yourself 'feisty?'"
I originally picked the word because it was alliteration with my name, but the more I think about it, the more I love it. I googled the definition a few weeks ago, and one of the definitions described me to a T: "lively, determined, and courageous."
"What is your opinion on sailing?"
Loving these specific questions! Um, I don't have any strong opinions about sailing... it's an awesome form of transportation? I have gone sailing before at summer camp.. it's harder than it looks.
Absolutely amazing. I may do a post about this separately because there is so much I want to talk about. All I can say it.... this is definitely where I bELONg.
I received many, many questions about some of my favorite things, so I'm going to go ahead and do a quick list of them! (Shoutout to Reilly Butler for most of these, hehe)

- Animal? Depends on the day... I love cats, dogs, and anything that cuddles.
- Store? Cotton On has some cool stuff that is CHEAP!

I will definitely be doing another #AskFeistyFletch in the future. Thank you so much to everyone that participated!
