Less Than A Week

It hit really hard last night that at this time next week, I will be at home surrounded by all the things needing to be unpacked and brushing off the last bits of college. I held my last TA event yesterday.  I brought some games and a bunch of movies based off books to provide […]

Reality is Kicking In

Reality is kicking in.  Hard.  I have less than a month of college left. Holy crap. It really hit home the day after halloween.  I’ve been sooo busy lately that I didn’t carve my pumpkins yet.  And then I was looking at my calendar for some reason and bam.  Time is dwindling down. Am I […]


Busy Busy

I’ve been a little quiet of late.  With running four clubs, holding 3 jobs and an internship, whilst preparing to graduate, my time has left very little room for the important things.  But I make time, because it is necessary to sleep, see family, and my roommates. What has happened in the past month? I […]


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, […]


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 […]

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 […]
