How I’m Dealing with FOMO and Jealousy

Moving away is hard. Especially when the majority of your friends are still going to be together. My now-college-freshman-friends are all spread out so while of course I miss them, they aren’t as hard to be away from because I know they have to go through the new friend process as well. Most of my…

Opening Up and Taking Risks

No one will tell you that I am a quiet person. I am loud, talkative, and almost always voice my opinion in a conversation. I’m not one to shy away from confrontation, and I am not afraid to say what I am thinking. This can be a good and bad thing. When it comes to…

25 Things I wish I had Realized Before I Graduated High School

I feel like graduation was MONTHS ago. It’s weird that it hasn’t even been a month since I walked across that stage. I took my last exam a month from yesterday and got my final transcript just last week. As my first day of college gets closer and closer, I can’t help but reflect on…

PICK ME! SOMEBODY PICK ME!

I’ve been in California for almost 3 weeks. This entire time I have been looking for a job. I look on every job site imaginable and have even driven around looking for help wanted signs as well. I’ve applied to over 30 jobs…YES, YOU HEARD ME, THIRTY JOBS! I get the confirmation emails so I…

I Lost my Best Friend on National Best Friend Day

I opened Twitter this morning to find 3 tweets that nearly knocked the wind out of me. Why? Because they snapped me into reality. I know, I know… Kendrick Lamar isn’t one of those inspiration filled accounts you thought I would be referring to. But read those tweets again. Ok so now you can imagine my…
