It’s almost that time of year when all college students disappear into the depths of the library and drown in a pool of papers, exams, and stress. We’re just weeks away: finals week. Finals week is the most dreaded week of the semester for everyone, no matter what year in college you are. It's all … Continue reading How to Survive Finals Week
I’ve recently discovered that I am so, so restless. I’ve always thought of myself as someone that can be content just about anywhere, but this week, I’ve been dreaming of being just about anywhere but Nashville. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the heck out of Nashville. But with the weight of finals approaching, … Continue reading My California Adventure
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Taking a break from school, spending time with family, and eating more food than you previously thought humanly possible. It doesn't get better than that.

I told myself it would never, ever happen. Never would I be the college student that’s sitting in the library at 3:30am, still working on homework that’s due at 8:00am. I was too organized for that.

An awesome post about my blog!! Love this so much! It’s so awesome to hear that people are enjoying my tips and snippets of advice. Go check out Kelsey’s review of Essential Undergrad!
Hello readers, this post is special because I am reviewing a blog site on WordPress that I find inspiring, and I think you will too.

I especially liked one of her most recent blogs, “Why I Went Through Sorority Recruitment,” because in this post she tells her story of going through recruitment, why she went through, and what she got out of it.
