Anyone who has been thirteen (or currently is) knows that a crisis begins around this age. Okay, well, a lot of crises, but I’m going to focus on one, because I’m not looking to write a 500 page book on the subject of early teenage crises. This crisis is one of identity. It’s that awful … Continue reading Yes, That Too.
Hey everyone! I have had an insanely busy past two weeks, and it's not over yet. I'm sorry for posting sparingly; I've been thinking about my blog constantly, but I haven't had much time to write. To make it up to you, I'm posting a lovely fall story I wrote for my fiction writing class … Continue reading The Moon, the Lake, and Lydia

In other … Continue reading You would NOT believe what happened to me when I got home today…!!(Not Clickbait)
Yes, everyone. I am going to be a stereotypical millennial and write about social media. I’ve been sitting on this topic for a while, because it’s a little overdone. There’s articles criticizing social media. There’s articles defending it.

I am haunted by words. I used to think the dead were the only ones up for the task. But the ghost that follows me is no restless soul. It's just a two little words. Just an idea. Back in the days of junior high, there was a giant, cloth poster that hung in the … Continue reading Carpe Diem

Sound effects aside, I never realized how To-Do lists were actually discouraging my productivity. I always figured that at least having a list of things to do would … Continue reading Are To-Do Lists Hindering your Productivity?!?

It’s an avalanche of new expectations, reconnecting with old friends, establishing study habits, and trying to … Continue reading Time Management & Other Personal Failures

I can’t bear the strains of this one-sided relationship anymore. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe; everything seemed so stable from the … Continue reading I Ended it…with Netflix
I live in an on-campus apartment at my university. I love it, but there is one catch. I have to feed myself. I’m a busy girl, what to do? Order a bunch of pizza and sadly wallow in its cheese-y goodness? Or step up my game? Honestly, it depends on the day. Still, most … Continue reading Eating Healthy At School: What I’ve Learned so far
I was a good student in high school, and I like to think I’m one in college, too. This said, there’s some not-so-subtle differences in studying for each level.
