#AdventuresinKekeland: Montclair State University

After a long semester of annotated bibliographies, thirty-three page homework assignments , and parkway tolls school’s out for summer!

I’ve been pursuing a master’s degree in Public & Organizational Relations from Montclair State University for over a year now yet I’ve never really had a chance to just hang out on the campus without balancing a conference call in one hand and a strong cup of coffee in the other.

So after making a last-minute trip to the Roselle Public Library I decided to use this holiday weekend to appreciate the abandoned campus’ beauty and just chill out with a thick book.

The C Letter Book Club just launched! I’ve heard so many good things about “Swing Time” I had to check the Zadie Smith novel out.

There’s spot on campus where you can see the entire Manhattan skyline. I always try and sit there when I get a chance.

It was worth the trek even on a cloudy day to have more than ten minutes to take it in.

I completed my undergraduate studies at Kean University so I engaged in a little bit of set tripping when it got chilly. Whatever I don't even play sports.

I'm just here for the architecture.

I rocked the VERTS shades I got the latest Lemons 2 Lemonade Mixer. I'm always happy to support a brand that values women of color!

I was bummed not to be able to get a milkshake from Red Hawk Diner.

I remember spending some good times at this 24/7 spot as a hardheaded high school kid who was doubtful she would even go to college let alone be working on a second degree. It's now easily the best part of my graduate studies. Though the memories come in second to the mozzarella sticks!

I ended the day with a bunch of fitbit steps and an empty belly. Hey you can’t win ‘em all!

Let me know what you’re reading and where this summer using the hashtag #cletterbookclub!
