10 Things I’ve Learned in College

Graduation is knocking on my door and I can’t wait to answer it! With that in mind, I decided that my first post for the great month of October should be a reflection of the past [FAR TOO MANY] years of college that I’ve gone through. Also, I went through a list of prompts for posts and this was one. When considering what lessons I’ve learned, I tried to only pick the 10 most essential lessons to my growth into adulthood.

October’s challenges

I’ve already seen people on social media talking about various challenges for the month of October and it’s getting me a little hyped up..! I’d really like to dive deeper into my creative abilities this fall, so an October challenge might be just the push I needed to start creating. I’m going to be on the look out for challenges that involve drawing/painting, journaling, and blogging. I had mentioned before that I wanted to give this blog a little more of a sense of direction, but I have not really done that yet. It’s been more of a diary- which is okay, but it has sort of made me contemplate how long I’ll keep it going. I am hoping to begin to write posts using prompts for topics instead of so much “off-top”, sporadic posting. I think that writing  based on prompts will force me to put more thought into my posts and hopefully spice up the creativity that I put into them too.

To Thrift or Not To Thrift

It’s that wonderful, yet dreadful time of the year. The time where my clothes have been worn til they’ve worn out, plus the change of the season. This fall, I am making considerably less income than any year before, so I’ve been thinking of thrifting my clothes for the fall and winter. Thrifting sounds like an adventure and a way to find decent clothes for a great price. Not to mention, thrifting is a great way to prevent waste. However, I am aware that it’s not that glamorous. The clothes are already worn, which means they may not last much longer considering the fact that I will be re-wearing them so often. I may have to visit several thrift stores to even find clothes that I find to be wearable and I could end up going to many stores and leaving empty handed.

So I’m not exactly sure about whether or not I will find my fall clothes at thrift shops or if I’ll find another way to bargain shop. Either way, I’ve got to figure it out soon because many of my clothes are going to have to go soon.
