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.

Shouldn’t Everyone Go To College?

IMG_5945

To go or not to go… that is the question… right? As an adult who really wasn’t that interested in going to college as a teen, but still went, I might have a balanced perspective on the matter for those who are contemplating going (or forcing their kids to/not to go). Continue reading →

My Only Summer Goal

Spend today ina library

It was just three months ago that I sat in my supervisors office with red, swollen, teary eyes. I was irritable, irrational, and just straight up tired of the world. My supervisor sat across from me in attendance of my pity party with a sad look on her face and she asked me if I wanted to continue working at my job.  Continue reading →

I used to identify as someone who wasn’t a “morning person” because of how difficult it was for me to get out of bed in the morning. I had a ridiculously difficult time getting out of bed. And even once I finally dragged myself out of the bed, I still didn’t feel like myself.

I’m not going to give you a lecture about staying away from boys, going to bed on time, or keeping your grades up. College is a serious, life shaping experience and there are some things that I wish I had been better prepared for by the adults who knew what I had coming to me.

De-clutter update #5… or 6?

Well well well…

I knew I’d be blogging about my progression in minimalism, but I was surely hoping I wouldn’t be back to say that I royally screwed it up. Sorta.

Over the past year, I’ve gone through so many emotions and thoughts and I shopped to make myself feel better. My capsule wardrobe is now completely filled with lots of clothes that I do not and will not wear, my room had slowly gained clutter again, and my life was getting cluttered too. As a part of my efforts to regather myself, I am planning to go through my things and have another de-clutter session. Luckily, it shouldn’t take me even half as long as the first time did.

I’m looking back to getting back to the good habits and life outlooks that I had before. I do believe that my life is getting back on track. A little bit at a time.
