The Rebellious Kid vs The Strict Parent

A friend recently told me that she hated her parents because of how strict they were. That got me thinking about this… Am I not rebellious because my parents aren’t strict and trust me? Or are my parents not strict because I haven’t given them a huge reason to be. I’ve had my fair share…

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…

San Diego – I’m Here and I’m a Grown-up

I can’t believe graduation was only 1 week ago. Since then, I’ve driven across the country to start the next chapter of my life, and I’ve never felt so many emotions at once. I’m terrified. Absolutely positively terrified of the unknown. My best friend drove across the country with me. If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t have made…

I Made a Friend

I’m kind of a socially awkward person who tends to require a long amount of time to make a solid friendship. That has not been the case recently though. I didn’t realize how nervous I was about making friends in college until I made one, and felt relieved. I was so afraid that no one would…

Getting My Hopes Up

Everything is set. We are planning our drive across the country, and all the details are falling into place. Two of my good friends have been looking at PLNU for a while now, and one of them has even been to the campus a few times. If all goes as we want it to, they…
