Hello, dear readers! Nine days ago, I graduated from college. For five years, Morris was home away from home. I gained some incredible friends, went to some amazing events–in October, I got to see Bill Nye the Science Guy!–and learned valuable life lessons, like how to do laundry and order pizza. Sometimes, I went to… Continue reading “I hope you return to the prairie.”
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! It’s only Tuesday and already I’m beginning to feel tired. After spending some quality time in the library (on the third floor, the coldest floor that the library has to offer, the designated quiet floor), I feel a definite need for coffee to keep me awake today. But before I go… Continue reading Coffee, O Coffee, Wherefore art Thou?
Good evening, dear readers! I’ve been tired on and off all day today. Instead of buying coffee like I wanted, I decided against it. After my 10:30 class, I felt more wide awake. I walked with my boyfriend to each of his prof’s respectable doors, waiting outside in the hall whenever he stopped and talked… Continue reading 2 Months and 26 Days

So far, in my Sex, Marriage & Family (or… Continue reading In the First Week of Classes, my Professors Posed to Me…
Hello, fellow readers! Today was my first day back at the college grindstone. The only difference for me is the realization that this is my last spring semester here at Morris. Naturally, this changes my perspective on how I view going to class, seeing my friends, eating at the dining hall, attending my poetry club… Continue reading Happy New School Year!
Hey, fellow readers & bloggers! I’m finally home for Christmas break! I have so many things to be thankful for this year: The joy of sleeping in, eating meals with my parents and younger sister Abbie, watching Netflix, and being able to return to reading on my Kindle. I want to look back on this… Continue reading Home at Last
Wings and teeth. I didn’t consider rap a legitimate art form until I listened to Doomtree. About Doomtree. In 2011, a friend of mine, Thomas, got me hooked on Doomtree and indie rap. I have him to thank for helping me see the poetry in a music genre that I had disavowed and disapproved of for… Continue reading Thoughts on Doomtree
Hello, dear readers! This blog will be on hold temporarily until I’m on Christmas break, which is approaching. This blog is also going on hold because I’m going through Hell Week. This means that I’m, naturally, very busy writing papers and completing final projects and studying for final exams. Until then, here’s an awesome poem… Continue reading On Hold
