Sophomore Year Is Rough, Man

Lol because I thought freshman year was hard...


Sophomore year is KICKING me in the ass. My life is really a big fat joke right now. I was so excited to come back to school after summer, but boy, right now, all I want is to be home.

I am currently writing from my literal deathbed. It is the beautiful season of midterms so I am struggling hard. Adding on to this, I just found out that I have strep so you could say that I'm doing REALLY well! Woohoo, I love college.

Honestly, besides from classes, my life isn't going too well. One of the reasons why I'm struggling is because I keep comparing sophomore year to freshman year. Freshman year was quite literally the best year of my life. I met my best friends, joined my sorority, did okay in my classes and overall, had so much fun. This whole summer, I HATED being home and I just couldn't wait to come back, but now that I am back, it just sucks. I can honestly say that I'm not as happy as I used to be. This school was a safe haven for me: a place I could go to that I know would take care of me and always be there. SCU was more of a home to me than my actual home (Dallas) was.

But, this year, everything has changed. I no longer feel as safe as I did. My dorm feels more like a prison than a home. There are just so many reminders of how horrible things are going in my life that I just keep sinking down into a hole. I've only been here for what? A month? And already, I am so unhappy. I wish I could snap my fingers and have everything go back to the way it was last year, but I really can't. I need to first focus on my mental health and then I'm sure that this year will turn itself around. I'm not hopeless yet. :)

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
