Obligatory New Year’s Resolutions Post

Last year, I did non-resolutions–things I wasn’t going to focus on in 2018. That went over about as well as any of my normal resolutions do. Which just goes to prove that resolutions of any kind are kind of ridiculous. The average person just…

What would it be? One-third life crisis?

It’s not a food post, but whatever. I’m having a lot of feelings right now and it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want! I’m writing this for queue at just after 5:30 on Thursday. So, when I say “today” I really mean…

Excuse me while I scream incoherently into the void

Yesterday, I wrote the rough draft of my first essay for my English class. I printed out two hard copies and stuck them in my folder so I would be prepared for our peer review discussion in class. I was done. I was ready….

School is Going Well

I’m better at social interaction than I would have guessed. Both of my classes are heavy on discussions, speaking, and interaction. This gives me more than a little bit of anxiety (I have chronic social anxiety, for those unaware). But, you probably wouldn’t have…

General Education? Seriously?

Can I just rant about college requirements for a moment, please? When you think of “general education requirements” you probably think of things everyone should know, regardless of what career path they plan to take. Everyone needs to know how to do basic math….
