  1. You’re the cutest thing ever. I love your voice! Let’s be best friends.

  2. BrittFit says:

    don’t be afraid of your inner dweeb…we are all have it πŸ™‚ LOVE THIS !

  3. No you are not a dweeb. Not.At.All. You are adorable. I love Vlogs and getting to hear bloggers voices (in a noncreepy way).

  4. dressed2dish says:

    Ah LOVED it!! Now I like want to skype you!!

  5. This was so cute! You sound more mature, with a slight southern accent, to me. I could relate to so many things you that you said. I’m 22 and get homesick (one of the reasons why I moved back home- kinda pathetic), I am terrible at sports but love working out, and loud eaters drive me nuts. I think I might do this vlog on my own blog!

    And I choose to read most blogs because I think we’d be friends in real life. Is that weird?

    • Colleen says:

      A Southern accent?! Wow! That’s too funny. Ah! We have so much in common πŸ™‚ And no, it’s not weird to read most blogs because you think you’d be good face-to-face friends. That’s why I read most blogs, too!

  6. Caroline says:

    I’ve been reading your blog for a little while, and I think the vlog is great! It is fun to hear people’s voices instead of just reading their words and imagining their voice.

    I’m 25 and I definitely still get homesick! I’m in grad school right now in Toronto and my parents live in California, so it’s tough.

    I love reading your blog because you can tell that you are healthy and active, but also relaxed about eating fro-yo and not being uptight about eating totally healthy at every meal, which I appreciate for being realistic. Keep it up!

    • Colleen says:

      Hi, Caroline! I’m glad to know I’m not the only grad student who still gets homesick πŸ˜‰ But you have a real reason to be – that’s pretty far of a distance!

      Thanks for your kind words about the blog! I’m so glad you like it! πŸ™‚

  7. Cait says:

    ahh my love you are SO cute beyond words! love the glasses πŸ˜‰ I cracked up when you said ‘harrow harrow’ because I do weird voices like this when I see close friends! I wish I can figure out how to leave a vlog..hmm..but I love that you did one! have a great tuesday!

  8. GF Grad Nut says:

    Bahaha…”I don’t wear cat sweaters or anything.” That made me laugh! Awesome Vblog!

  9. I’ll be watching this when I get home!! Then I think I’m going to join in on the VLOG questions–sounds like fun! πŸ™‚

  10. Jessamy says:

    Super cute Colleen! Your blog is great to read, since I am new to the blog side of life it is nice to read someone’s who a little more organized.

    The vlog is super amazing and truly interesting, since we went to school together I know what you sound like; however it is still different over a video (and of course people do not sound like what they believe they should sound like).


  11. Alyssa says:

    I love this. πŸ™‚ You’re so cute, and yes, your voice sounds just like I thought it would. I wanna do this for my THIRD vlog post!

  12. Jenny says:

    You were destined to do vlogs! Hmm I don’t really think about what people sound like but you are adorable haha I think you need to come to Miami like now because you would be a TON of fun, plus you won’t judge me for talking like sailor lmaooo πŸ˜€

    Love ya girl

    • Colleen says:

      Oh my gosh – thanks, Jenny! Yes, please, I want to come to Miami hah! We can eat oats for breakfast, beach it during the day, eat mass amounts of fro-yo and talk like sailors and not worry about it haha πŸ™‚

  13. Oh my goodness, could you be any cuter? Seriously! Love this! πŸ™‚

    You totally sound like you look! Very sweet and cute. Your voice matches perfectly. πŸ™‚

  14. Michelle says:

    Ah! I want to watch it but I’m at work… definitely coming back to check it out πŸ™‚

  15. Kathryn says:

    You sound so different on the video than you do in person! But you sound great no matter what πŸ™‚ I enjoyed the vlog! You should do it again πŸ™‚

  16. You’re ADORABLE. I’m too chicken to do a vlog, plus I don’t really wanna see myself talk haha. Love yours, though!

  17. Stephanie says:

    Love it! You made me laugh with your funny voice, followed by an explanation of the fact that it wasn’t actually your voice, just in case we weren’t convinced. Haha! I don’t actually “hear” people when I read blogs. Everyone sounds exactly like me in my head, I guess! Thanks for posting…really fun vlog…and your voice is great!

  18. cbrady3 says:

    I love hearing your VOICE!

  19. Awwwh I love you! haha. But seriously – you’re gorgeous. And yes, I SO imagine bloggers to sound/act certain ways. And I can totally relate to the homesickness thing. I’m pretty sure I’ll be the same for a while after I move out πŸ˜›

  20. Brittany says:

    yayyy πŸ™‚ I loveeee vlogs! I’ve been wanting to do another one besides the accent vlog, but i don’t just want to ramble on for 10 minutes πŸ™‚

  21. kayejohn says:

    Your voice is actually not what I expected. Not sure, I guess maybe I figured someone as precious as you would have a more lilting, higher pitched voice? But no matter. You’re still adorable.

    Perhaps I shall vlog with these same questions soon. πŸ™‚

  22. Mom says:

    You are beautiful and you sounded exactly like I thought you would. Love you lots.

  23. LOVE it! I now know that we definitely need to meet up in DC or something soon!

    P.S. I’m not a loud eater πŸ˜‰

  24. jos xx says:


    I’ve just found your blog right now! I totally love this video! You’re such a sweet person and I loved all your answers πŸ™‚

    jos xx
    if you want check out my blog
    and if you like it maybe we could
    be friends πŸ™‚

  25. Be fit and be fabulous says:

    Okay, I’m totally creepy and looked through your past posts and found this! Love love love it! πŸ™‚

    I order the EXACT same thing at coffee shops- usually an americano with sugarfree hazelnut and skim. πŸ™‚

    love your posts! ah!

  26. Sara Lang says:

    Hey! I’m your new pen pal, and figured I’d watch your vlog to get to know you. Your starbucks order sounds delicious!

  27. Karla says:

    cutest vlog ever. I love your positive energy!
    I wish I could do a vlog.. except I have no webcame & sound like a man. Maybe someday I’ll muster up the courage! πŸ™‚

  28. YOURE SO CUTE!!!!! I’ve gotta do one of these vlog things. It’s interesting how you said about thinking you know how people sound. I totally do that too!!
    I get what you mean about loud eaters. My entire moms side of the family, I love them, but oh pleaaaaaaase chew quietly!! it’s like…mouth resonance or something… : )

  29. Your voice is so cute! I’ve been reading for a while, but never commented until I saw this post. Now I want to vlog.
