New Year, New Me?

What are your goals for the New Year?

New Year, New Me?

When Fall semester ended, I took a break from writing but now as Spring semester is here (holy moly), I have decided to continue writing again. This month-long break of no studying, no homework, no stress, lots of time with friends and family, and too many naps to count was much needed. At the end of Fall semester, I was just done and ready for a break and now I am refreshed and ready to rock out my last semester as a Sophomore in college, wow.

As 2018 rolled in, I saw many people on social media talking about their "New Years Resolutions" and "New Year, New Me." I am not one to make resolutions for the upcoming new year because I think it is crazy and nobody ever keeps those. Right? I think we should have New Year Goals instead of resolutions that we probably won't ever keep. For instance, going to the gym every day and eating healthy. Now, those are AWESOME resolutions but not many of us ever keep them but if you do, kudos to you!

Instead of resolutions, I have come up with some goals that I hope to achieve this year. I want to strive to be healthier and get in shape at my own pace, simply love people better, dig into God's Word and experience His grace, and strive for success as a college student.

These goals may not seem grand to you but they are grand to me. I want to become a healthier version of myself and love people the way that Jesus does. I also want to give all I have to become the best future teacher I can be this semester. Last semester, I let myself become bogged down in school work and get way too stressed but this semester I hope to not let myself become as stressed and focus on not becoming a procrastinator, ha!

If you don't have any goals yet for this new year, I encourage you to start praying and thinking about some goals that you want to achieve this year. Whether it's school related, health-related, work-related, or relationship related, I hope you strive to achieve these goals this year. What are your goals this year?

I can't wait to see all that God has in store for me in 2018! Happy New Year, friends!

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.
