I Am A Writer

When I don't quite know how to handle a situation, I write.

I Am A Writer

I am a writer. I may not always be good at putting my thoughts into words when I'm having a conversation but I can always put pen to paper. There is something about being able to formulate what you want to say into just the way you want it to be said. I write about sad things, happy things, random things, school, my job, my family, my friends, and my feelings. I write about my life. When I don't quite know how to handle a situation, I write.

I have always been a writer. Granted, my middle school self had less important things to write about such as her 8th grade crush, but at the time I still went to writing to express myself.

As a writer I am also an over-thinker. I replay every thought and potential outcome in my head countless times. This comes with always wanting to be able to say exactly what I want to say and by that I mean writing it on paper or in a note on my phone.

I've written songs, poems, short stories, random blurbs and of course articles; many of which have been posted here. While at first I may not know what I want to say I can always get my thoughts straight as soon as my fingers hit the keyboard.

Writing gives me power. It gives me the power to have my voice be heard. It allows me to care enough to share how I feel with others. It allows me to vent and clear my head and to get my thoughts straight.

I am a writer. Whether it be pen to paper or pen to the always-there napkin, I know that words will always be my passion.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
