Sophomore Year Recap

While it doesn’t quite feel like it yet, it’s officially my summer vacation! Several of my professors decided to make our finals optional at the last minute, so the school year ended on an anticlimactic note (otherwise I would have been working on final projects until 11:59 tonight!). 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”

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.).

Bloopers and A College ‘Mood’

Yesterday, I lacked the time (and all motivation) to take blog photos, so I decided to dig into the archives and find some funny blooper pictures to post instead—it’s been a hot minute (as the kids say) since I last shared a blooper post! I love to do this every once and awhile to show some “realness” because trust me, the majority of the photos I take are not good. And given that students are extremely stressed this time of year with midterms/finals before spring break (depending on if you have a traditional semester system or a quarter system, like me), I figured, why not caption all of the blooper photos with college-related stressors? I got the idea from Meghan at butterflyempire.com. She always posts blooper photos on her Instagram stories and lets her followers come up with funny captions—such a good idea! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post, especially if you’re a stressed out college student like me. Continue reading “Bloopers and A College ‘Mood’”
