HELLO, SENIOR YEAR

Wow. I cannot believe that this is my last year of college (at least for now).

Don’t Fall Into the Trap of Digital Clutter…

…a mess that you can’t escape.

A majority of my summer has involved cleaning. I’ve been sorting through my room and some boxes in the basement because I’ll be a senior in college this year–who knows where I will end up living after school? And I sure know that I won’t want to move all of my boxes out of my parents’ basement.

Now that it is almost August, I will soon be sorting through what I need to bring to college this year (I keep telling myself that I will take less stuff this year, but who am I kidding).

Not only did I have to organize my physical items, but I also had to organize files on my computer. My laptop had been “acting up” for a few months, so I decided that it was, sadly, time to get a new one.

I Thought I Was A City Girl…

Why can’t I feel that way in my hometown?

Maybe it’s because I wasn’t giving thanks for it.

Life Isn’t Like a Nicholas Sparks Movie

Literally 10 minutes ago, one of my good friends sent me a link to an article that I think everyone needs to read. As a college student, seeing all of the different relationships and the strength of each is very disconcerting. The blog “My Marriage Wasn’t Meant To Be” by Matt Walsh describes why many relationships fail nowadays–our relationships are a choice, not a destiny. I encourage you to check out the blog. It’s worth the read.

Social Media Detox

Okay, I know that as of late I haven’t been updating my blog as frequently as I should. As final exams and the end of the semester are approaching, I once again found my free time being eaten away by 30 page papers and group presentations. Realizing that I needed to be more productive, I tried a social media experiment.
