You know how I said I'd be better about keeping up with my blog this year? Hah, yeah... that went reeeeaaaally well. The truth is, I bit off way more than I can chew. I'm taking 17 credits and working several jobs. In short, I can no longer promise there will be a new blog post every … Continue reading Rough Start
I have returned from the Pit of Despair!! Just when you thought I couldn't be geekier I slid that swanky "Princess Bride" reference in there. And just so we're all clear, the Pit of Despair was finals. I have finished my first semester of college! I thought I was used to the fact that I'm … Continue reading The End Has Come

In some ways, this is a good thing. But, it's not good all the time. These traits drive me to accomplish more, and be successful. In general, these … Continue reading Learn to be Lazy

Either way, I will never walk the halls of my high school again (as a student anyway). It is such an … Continue reading One Last Time
A couple weeks ago someone asked me to explain senioritis. I have to admit, I didn't have an immediate answer that would fit everyone. Guess what? I still don't have an all inclusive answer (WARNING: This post is very long). This terrible mental and emotional fog, that clouds seniors' minds, comes in many shapes and … Continue reading Senioritis, and Why It Is the Bane of My Existence
