February Photo A Day Challenge (With One Lucky Winner!)

I’m a bit obsessed with Instagram, it’s the only social media site I can post on multiple times a day about things that no one truly care about. And nobody can say a thing about it. Filters make my average photos look magical and tags such as #catsofinstagram provide me with my daily dose of cute.

Back in November my roommate and I were joking about No Man November being a success, that we had high hopes for Don’t Date December and hopefully we’d still be this positive by Forever Alone February. In an effort to distract ourselves from the fact that we’re single on the most romantic month of the year (at least for the first two weeks), I came up with a photo a day challenge for Instagram. 
Except it’s not your mother’s photo challenge. 
Within an hour my roommate and I came up with the most fun, creative and unordinary daily challenges. All you have to do is post your photo on Instagram with the hashtag #HCUCRVDAY and at the end of the month we’ll round up the posts to choose one lucky winner to receive a $20 dollar gift card! Pretty awesome huh?
Taking part in this photo challenge with us is our sister campus Her Campus Montclair (@HCMontclair) and some members of the Her Campus Blogger Network, including:

Make sure to check out their blogs and follow their Instagram to see their daily photo posts! 

We can’t wait to see all the creative ways collegiettes conquer the daily challenges! Scroll down a bit more for an explanation of some of the day’s challenges, and be sure to share this photo on your Instagram so your followers can take part in it too!


Some of our daily challenges are a bit…confusing. Sorry about that, here’s a mini explanation for some days. 

Feb 1: If you had your own television show, what song would play during the opening credits?!

Feb 7: Cant reach the remote? Snap a photo of it! Photograph the first world problems that you struggle with every day…

Feb 9: MCM Black History Month Edition is just like every other Man Crush Monday except you must crush on someone who identifies as African American, it is Black History Month ya’ll.

Feb 10: Google this, trust me you’ll be laughing in seconds!

Feb 11: Pick an object you wouldn’t mind spending the rest of your life with.

Feb 18: If I am what I eat, then I’m a dinosaur chicken nugget. Rawr. Photograph the one food you wouldn’t mind being made of. 

Feb 26: Same as February 9th, but this time it’s Woman Crush Wednesday!


Have fun with this and don’t forget to use the hashtag #HCUCRVDAY to be entered to win the gift card. The more you post, the more entries you receive!!

She decided to double major because at the time it seemed like she was getting two degrees for the price of one, the ultimate sale! She writes about relationships, how to spend a Friday night at home, being a confused twenty-something and never having enough money in her bank account. Her column 'Midweek Study Break' is published every Wednesday but you can read more of her work in her new project, When Life Gives You Rubi. Until Disney decides to make a movie about how hard it is to be a recent (single) college graduate, we can try to figure out this whole being a grown up thing together.
