Why I Do Hard Things

It took only three weeks of school to make me realize that I'm drowning. I go to school, I go to work, and then I do homework until I go to bed. My A.P. classes are making sure that I don't get any free time, not even to write a blog post once in a... Continue Reading →


Back at it again with the High School

Excited for school? What was I thinking... As the end of summer came zooming towards me, I began to get excited about school starting.

How to Survive the ACT

Prior to the beginning of Summer break, I took the ACT test at my high school for the very first time. I was anxious, paranoid, and apprehensive about what I would find on the test and what my score would be.  Besides, I forgot everything I had learned during the school year. When I arrived...

500 Miles

Thanks to an amazing blogger and friend known as Inky, I have had a fantastic song rolling through my head for nearly 72 hours. Most songs that constantly run through my mind get really annoying really fast, but this song hasn't. Number one on my current list of favorite songs, I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) is...
