Hello, dear readers! I came up with a cool new blog idea, which I’ll eventually share with you. But, as of right now, it’s under wraps. Shh! (Seriously, it’s super cool and I’m so glad I thought of it.) If you’ve been to my blog before, you totally know it looks like. But, as of… Continue reading Oh No. No, No, No, No!
Hello, dear readers! I’ve been absent on WordPress because I’m super busy with homework. It’s crunch time. While I’m pretty sure that I’ve said this before, it’s worth repeating. Tonight, I need to write two papers, one for my Senior Seminar–which I’m presenting for on Thursday this week–and one for my Sex, Marriage and Family… Continue reading Until Further Notice
Good evening, dear readers! First of all, Happy Friday! It’s been almost two weeks since I last blogged. Don’t fret–I haven’t given up on blogging, I just am immensely busy with schoolwork, like papers and daily homework. These last four weeks are crucial for me. It’s crunch time. What helps is the quiet fourth floor… Continue reading Weekend Workday
Good morning, dear readers! Today’s the day! I’ve finally decided to come up with a weekly schedule for my blog. After creating so many categories and sub-categories, I thought it would be useful for me to develop a proper day-to-day schedule. I’ll (somehow) upload my daily schedule, but for now, I will leave it here in… Continue reading Blog Schedule!
I need your input. Lately, I’ve been tacking on more and more categories. Originally, I started out with some areas that I wanted to review–books, movies, TV shows, etc.–as well as writing about my experiences as a senior in college.
But now, I’ve got four main categories and easily over three subcategories. I worry that if I keep going, my blog will completely lose direction. (Don’t worry, I’m not giving up on blogging! I just need some help in narrowing stuff down.)
I also am considering changing the name of my blog to match the over-arching theme of being a college student learning on the prairie.
Do you have any helpful tips for narrowing down my blog topic/s? What do you guys do when you feel like you’re derailing from the main purpose of your blog?
Hello, dear readers! Tonight, as I head back home from Chanhassen, I find solace in the music I’m listening to–Avatar: The Legend of Korra. I also find peace in the words I’m writing. If you’d asked me several years ago if I would consider writing a blog, I would probably say you were being ridiculous. “Me,”… Continue reading On Blogging
Good evening, dear readers! I’m taking a mini study break in the library. My coffee-fueled brain has pulled up three tabs, all articles revolving around the poet Mary Oliver; I’ve got several new Oliver related backgrounds in my photo library; my boyfriend has been cursing Windows 8 on his laptop–it’s not as user-friendly as Windows… Continue reading For Once, Rocks aren’t Boring
Good morning, dear readers! Last night, I attended an hour-long lecture for seniors. Unlike last semester, when I deliberately forgot or didn’t really care, I signed myself up early this time. Determined to gain some real-life tips and tricks, I took a notebook, my backpack, and my water bottle. On my way to the science building on campus,… Continue reading The Power of Preparedness: An Interviewing Skills Workshop Story
Dear Rory, You are like the Wings of Freedom to me. You keep me sane and happy. When my inner Titans attack, you are like Levi and rip them to shreds. I love you more than I love eating potatoes. We’d be an awesome team, you and me, shooting through the sky, landing atop the… Continue reading A (Surprise) Letter to my Boyfriend
Good morning, everyone! I’m pretty sure I’ve developed an addiction to blogging. Over the past few days, I’ve checked and re-checked my blog stats, and the people I’m following. I’ve created at least four new drafts of topics or ideas I want to cover. I thought it would be a good idea to try blogging… Continue reading Blog Addiction
