November.

You know what that means. Halfway done with the fall semester.

Oh. My. God.

But where has the time gone?

Well, you've come to the right place.

Among the college craziness, it's easy to lose your inner calendar.

Welcome to the Fall 2018 Semester breakdown:

September

The month consists of four straight weeks of "Oh my ~gawwwwd.~ I know we totally didn't talk all summer but how are you and how has your summer been?! Missed you so much. XOXO!"

October

The dreaded midterm month. This month manages to last forever, but every college student knows to kiss this month goodbye along with our happiness, hopes, and dreams. (Positivity? Never heard of her.)

November

The month tired and broken down college students are aimlessly looking for food. And if you're quiet enough, you can almost hear their faint whisper, that as the month wears on, turns into a progressive, yet incredibly healthy, scream of "I can't wait for Thanksgiving break! I can't wait for Thanksgiving break! I. NEED. THANKSGIVING. BREAK!"

December

The month where two weeks feels like a lifetime. Finals?! Didn't we just do this? Merry Christmas? Um, hello? Santa, where are you?! Please stuff my stocking with a good GPA? I've been really good this year? You can ask my professors? Please and thank you?!

And then it's over. Fall semester has come to a close in the blink of an eye. I guess time really does fly when you're having fun, but it's up to you as to how you want to remember it.

If You Have A Project You Want To Grow, Crowdfunding May Be The Answer

The benefits of the crowdfunding phenomenon.

The idea of crowdfunding is exciting, isn't it? A small town poet can use a platform like GoFundMe or Patreon to sell their work directly to those who are looking for it. A community organizer can not only raise funds for an upcoming event, but they can also keep the funds coming in to raise money for the monthly expenses of running their group. A magazine editor can keep their readership engaged through multimedia as well as tangible perks in exchange for tiers of subscription costs.

Crowdfunding makes it so people can combine multiple engagement styles directly with target audiences for a common cause.

What really makes crowdfunding satisfying is getting monetary confirmation that what one is passionate about is supported. Money rules a lot of the world, and receiving money for creating or providing something for others is extremely fulfilling. Different than just going to work and earning a paycheck. Jobs employ workers to create or provide something that has already had a template of origination.

Crowdfunding is running one's own business of creation or providing goods without a bunch of the red tape. In fact, one could say that crowdfunding has allowed sites like Etsy to flourish. One can now make a pretty decent profit just making pins, Mickey ears, necklaces — whatever one can imagine — and get it directly in eyes of those interested. There's nothing to lose in crowdfunding, just the hour or so it may or may not take to set up the site.

Crowdfunding can also be used for temporary things like school funds, funeral funds, and recovery efforts. Need $10,000 to get through a semester at college? Have a sudden death in the family and need $5,000 to pay closing costs and unexpected expenses? Major world disaster like a hurricane or tsunami destroy an entire majorly populated area? GoFundMe is your answer. You'll most likely get twice as much funds then the goal you set.

There's now many crowdfunding sites out there. Outside of GoFundMe, the three biggies are Patreon, Indiegogo, and Kickstarter. So take your pick, make your page, and get some money!

And just in case you're wondering, yes I do have crowdfunding efforts out there for my projects! One for my personal writings, and one for my magazine.

"Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow"

By: Langston Hughes


Dreams are what keep me going everyday. The dream of my life. The dream to live where I want. The dream to do what I want. The dream to conquer the world. The dream to succeed. The dream to be happy in my own life.
