To My Second Semester of College

You taught me who I wanted to be

I wrote a letter to my first semester of college not too long ago, and as I have officially completed my first year of college, I thought it was time to write one to the second semester of college as well.

The second semester of college is always a little different, you are used to where things are, you know what to expect in classes and your friends are pretty solid.

My second semester was a complete 180 from the first one. I was in the same room all semester, I had the same friend group, and I was ready to conquer classes even harder now.

My second semester proved so much to me…

So to my second semester of college… thank you.

Thank you for giving me friends who ultimately became family. Thank you for giving me a roommate who is now my life long best friend. Thank you for giving me my new roommate who is also become a life long best friend. Thank you for pushing me even harder with the workload and extra curricular's. Thank you for showing me that I can be independent and figure things out for myself. Thank you for teaching me what I deserved and never letting me settle for anything less. Thank you for letting me grow up, even though in some moments I thought there was no way I could do it. Thank you for showing me that despite the anxiety ridden days, I could do anything. Thank you for throwing some of the hardest things at me, but then teaching me I could do it no matter what.

Every semester is so very different, my first semester of college was riddled with mountain after mountain, forcing me to climb till the absolute end. Second semester taught me that the struggle and hard work consistently pay off.

Everything happens for a reason.

I chose my school for a reason.

I struggled as I did for a reason.

I made certain decisions for a reason.

And, ultimately, that reason was to better myself.

So to my second semester of college, thank you for encouraging me to better myself. I am a better friend, a better daughter and a better all-around person because of what you taught me.

I found myself because of you, second semester, thank you for giving me the opportunities and chances to do so.

I am forever changed and will be forever grateful.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
