To All College Students Struggling

College is just a mind teaser of life.

To All College Students Struggling

Dear all you emotionally unstable college students.

From one emotional student to another, just admit it. We all know the feeling. We know all too well the deep anxiety in our chest, the feeling of just making it, the sleepless nights cramming for our tests, break down after break down.

We all miss our lives before we decided we were all going to jump into deep water headfirst hoping to come out alive. It is tough. I can preach about it.

I have struggled with school since I can remember.

Imagine this feeling. You walk into class on test day. You feel 100% confident in what you're doing. You sit down at your desk & boom it's gone: all your hard work, all your hours of studying, all the notes, GONE. You sit there anxiously while your chest begins to close up. You feel so upset & then comes the grade. Lower than what you asked for. Lower than what your confidence thought it would be. We have all been there.

We are guilty of feeling unworthy, not good enough, over exhausted, etc. For students not working, you begin to miss your jobs & the money you made. You just get by on bills, insurance, food. We as young adults struggle, & with that, we have all considered how hard life would be without a college education.

I get it college students. So many tears are just flowing. Your heart is just breaking at the thought of "maybe this isn't what I am supposed to do" even if it is your dream. The thought that you might be seen as a failure, or be judged, or a disappointment runs rampant through your already overstressed mind.

I've been there. I've struggled myself into a depression. No matter how hard I worked, I never caught a break. I am an extremely tired college student who does entirely way too much to get negative results back. At first I believed no one understood but I am not alone.

To my fellow strugglers, don't give up quite yet. Remember there are people there for you. School will be hard but you have to stick it out. A professor told me "I had a ton of bad grades & didn't think school was for me but here I am doing what I love." One day when you get your diploma in your hand, it'll be worth every minute of school. You will look back & be so thankful that you pushed through school. One day you will go to sleep in your own house with the love of your life & understand why God made college so difficult.

Just remember a piece of paper with a letter on it doesn't make you any less of a person. Keep being the greatest you can be.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
