Yesterday marked the four-year anniversary of when I created Graceful Rags. Four years?! Wow, time flies! I started my blog during the summer between my sophomore and junior years of high school, and a few notable things changed as a result: I became a chronic procrastinator with schoolwork (before starting my blog, I was the type of student who studied every night and finished all my projects a week before the due date), my productivity plummeted thanks to starting my blog’s Instagram account, and I suddenly had no free time (hard to determine if this was due to the difficulty of junior year or the added work of my blog—I’m guessing a combination of both).

It’s been a long and crazy year, so I’m extremely excited to finally be able to relax and focus more time on the blog and my research job. Yes, it wasn’t quite the school year I imagined, but there were still so many great memories that I wanted to reflect on today, as well as talk about my classes. I don’t usually do college-related posts, so I hope you enjoy! Continue reading “Sophomore Year Recap”
