Twenty years old and still a "freshman" in college, I'm tackling the ups and downs of trying to figure out what it is I'm supposed to be doing. I'm not the girl with the 4.0, who has color coded binders because she obviously has her shit together. I'm the girl who went to college and learned that some things don't work out the first time. I'm the girl who is constantly in motion because sometimes sitting still feels funny. I have my grandmother's name and I wear it proudly. Hailing from cities, states, and streets that all kind of blurred together with time, I'm a traveler. I like the color purple and the feeling that cheap vodka gives you. I'm twenty years old and I don't have a clue where I'm going. And according to popular vote, not a lot of twenty-somethings do. Velvet is my way of sharing what it's like to be lost in this fishbowl of a world.
