The Semester Has Begun, And It's Going To Be Okay

A note to those who are starting to feel overwhelmed as the school year starts back up.

It's the second semester of college, and we are here at the start of a new beginning for both freshmen and seniors alike. No matter who you are, we all have our struggles and obstacles.

For me, it's winter time.

Sometimes, it can be fun, whether you are spending hours being cozy indoors, watching your favorite television shows or movies, or if you are lucky enough, getting to play outside in the snow and feel like a kid again. But, one of the downsides of the winter time is the limited time you can spend outdoors. If you are anything like me, then you know how hard it is when you don't get enough sunshine.

But, before you know it, spring will have sprung, the flowers will bloom, and the second semester will be over and done with.

Until that time, be sure not to rush through the winter. Try to live a little in the most fun ways, make the best of the cold season, and most importantly, be sure to take advantage of the days where mother nature decides to turn up the thermostat. Remember this feeling next July when you're blasting the AC, and wishing for cooler temperatures.

If you're not one of those people who feel bummed out in the winter, maybe you're feeling overwhelmed with school. I'm here to tell you that it's okay. Of course, you should always try your best and aim for success, but know that you will be okay if not every assignment is perfect.

Remember to take time to enjoy life, do things that make you happy, and surround yourself with those who bring you joy. As this semester is starting to turn on full motion, know that you will be okay and that we will all get through this.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
