The Last Semester Of College

I don't think I'm ready to leave yet.

The Last Semester Of College
Alyssa Tompkins

The last semester of college has me feeling some way. I have had nothing but positive experiences throughout my undergraduate career, and to be honest, I'm just not sure if I'm ready to leave.

Part of me says I need to move on with my life and enter the "adult world." But part of me says I should stay in college a little longer. I'm torn.

How can I leave the place where I met life long friends, professors that care about me, and found something I want to do for the rest of my life? OK, maybe I'll also miss the fact that I can wear sweats every day and no one is going to judge me as well.

So a simple thank you is due to the friends that turned into families and the professors that turned into my favorite references for my future endeavors. I don't think I'll be fully ready to go come May.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

12986

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
