My Coronavirus Silver Linings

Hello again! Long time no see. I hate that I haven’t been able to post for the last 3 usual posting days (yikes, it’s been a long time since I was that absent from the blog), but with finals and having to suddenly move out of my dorm, I just didn’t get around to it. That doesn’t mean I don’t have tons of blog post ideas for the upcoming weeks, though! As I mentioned on Instagram the other day, it seems like the majority of people prefer to maintain a sense of normalcy during this trying time and continue to rely on their usual blogs/social media/pastimes to temporarily distract themselves from the news. With that said, I have decided to continue blogging like regular, but with an occasional—and temporary—coronavirus twist (more posts centered on being at home, etc.).

Guess what day it is!!! (No, it’s not Hump Day.) But it is the first day of school for me, and I spent all weekend moving into my awesome new dorm.

5 Non-Cliché Things I Learned My First Year of College

college lessons, road trip, unpacking, college

Well folks, I finally finished my freshman year of college (and am back to blogging). I know I’m a little late to the party, what with the quarter system and all—I mean, my friends have been on summer vacation since early May! But we’ll see who’s complaining in August when they all have to go back to school and I don’t ‘til mid-September, hehe. Anyway, it amazes me to think how fast this year went by (and how much I’ve changed in such a short period of time). I’m a nostalgic person at heart, so I couldn’t not write a reflection post about my first year. Before I left for school last summer, everyone told me the same bits of advice: be open, meet new people, get involved, etc. While all those nuggets of overused wisdom served me well, they were just that—overused. That’s why today’s post compiles some of the not-so-common things I learned my freshman year. Keep scrolling to read more and to see some of my favorite photos from the past 10 months!
