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
This will be one of the shortest blog posts ever. I failed at NaNo this year 😦 . This was by far my lowest word count out of all the years I have participated. I lost the steam to write after about three days, and kind of forgot about it after that. College had me … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Recap
Well, there ya have it folks. This blog post is over a day late, and I honestly don't have a good excuse for that.

You know, that thing I've been talking about since last year. It's here now. I AM A COLLEGE STUDENT. It's one of those days … Continue reading A New Chapter
With college starting in less than a week, there have been a lot of things on my mind. How will I pay for next semester? Will I like it? Will I like my classes? Believe me, there are A LOT more questions bouncing around my mind. When I started my college journey, my parents said … Continue reading Do It Again
I know I have been posting a lot about college and graduating high school, but it's been a pretty big part of my life recently. So, here is one more blog post about college. After today, I promise there will be no more blog posts about college until school starts 🙂 . Almost 2 weeks … Continue reading College=New Friends
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

It drains you of every resource you have (a.k.a. it eats your money). It takes you away from home. College is a … Continue reading Is it Possible to Graduate College Debt Free?
