Another Summer Update

This summer has been rough off and on.  As I’ve mentioned, I’ve stayed pretty busy with jobs and internships, which is perfect because I love to stay occupied.  However, it has also been a summer of loss. In June, I had my Great Grandmother’s funeral service.  She passed away back in December during my finals, […]


Time Flies

The summer rapidly comes to a close.  I finished up my last shift at Culver’s for the summer and have begun the grueling process of packing and planning the semester.  My family demands my time as I wrap up last minute internship things and important details for this last semester. But with any start of […]

Deciding on Laptops for College-The Long Version

Currently, there exists a plethora of different laptops and laptop brands. Apple, Dell, Spectre, Lenovo, Google, and Asus are a few of the brands that stores offer. When trying to decide on what to buy, it can be a little overwhelming. The store clerk shows you the array of options and tells you a little […]


A Summer Update

June passed by in a blur.  Now it is suddenly the middle of July.  Where did all the time go? First it went to Culver’s.  I work on average forty hours a week, which is nice.  I truly love the people I work with, the guest I meet and say HELLOOO to, and speak with.  […]


A Summer Read

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater My rating: 4 of 5 stars As always, Maggie Stiefvater created a magical idea out of a mundane background. Everyone has darkness in them. A dysfunctional family helps bring it into physical form for you to combat. However, it’s not in the way you think. I enjoyed this […]

Start of the Summer

Being home for the summer is always strange. It feels like an untethering from reality. I fall back on nostalgic notions, doing chores around home and trying to spend time with family. In between hanging with family, I work on remote internships, preparing for life post-graduation. But I don’t feel completely like an independent adult […]


Deciding on Laptops for College

College is just around the corner, which means the headache of purchasing a laptop.  Stores spout out brands, facts, and prices, but it’s all drowned out by the dribble in your head.  What should you even be looking at? Best Buy provides a list of the top picks for laptops. They divide the devices by […]

Feeling Presidential

For next semester, I have taken on another presidential role as the President of Omicron Delta Kappa, the leadership honor society. I was not expecting it, but I am excited for the opportunity to help run and improve the society.  We do a lot, and I would love to allow for more chances to get […]

Surviving the Last Stretch

Motivation is key but illusive at the end of the semester.  I am not someone who usually lets the end of the semester stress me too much.  If you allow the semester to send you into a panic, then it’s going to annihilate you.  If you remain calm and set aside moments to allow yourself […]

Bittersweet Moments

Because I am graduating in the Fall, I am already having a lot of “lasts.”  Last Spring Break, last Easter Break, last Spring Fling social events, and now last Literary Awards.  As these happen, I know in the back of my head that this won’t happen again, yet I don’t feel as nostalgic as I […]
