7 Thoughts On Entering Senior Year

On the outside I look calm, cool, and collected. On the inside I'm a freaking mess.

7 Thoughts On Entering Senior Year

As I enter into my senior year, many thoughts have crossed my mind. College is a crazy time. You meet new people, face academic challenges, and live life. The four years in college are supposed to be the best years of your life, so how can I even put into words what I'm feeling as I approach the end? I guess I'll have to try...

Time flies.

I can't believe how fast the past three years have gone. Like how am I a senior when it feels like just yesterday I moved into my freshman dorm? I'm in serious denial.

The real world is next.

You're telling me I have to find my own apartment and get a job? That stuff is for adults! Oh wait...

The pressure is on.

Even though classes haven't even started, many of us are already applying to jobs and grad school. So basically we're trying to plan the rest of our lives at the moment.

I need to squeeze a lifetime of fun into 8 months.

Take the stupid things we did as freshman, the academics of sophomore/junior year, the drinking of all three, and combine it into one. That will be my senior year.

I can't believe my friends and I will all be going our separate ways soon.

I've met my best friends in college. How can I possibly leave them after I've had such little time with them?! And we're not just talking other parts of the country here, we'll be facing distances across continents as we try to remain friends.

Job/grad school applications are coming.

So not only do we have to keep up our grades AND have the best year of our lives, we also have to add the stress of applying to jobs and schools, too!

Holy sh*t.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
