LAST WEEK OF MY FIRST SEMESTER AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY

WE MADE IT! I think I will do some type of blogmas starting after today to make up for my lack of posting this month. This means I will be doing a month of daily posting. It usually starts on December first but I don’t follows the rules put on me by society so I…

NO SHAME NOVEMBER

A friend recently told me “ITS NO SHAME NOVEMBER!” I have never thought of November this way but I thought to myself hell yeah it is. I for one am tired of feeling embarrassed by my weirdness or my YouTube videos. Life is too short to worry about what other people think of you. Of course it…

HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN COLLEGE

1. MAC AND CHEESE Everyone says that ramen will be your staple in college, but honestly I got sick of ramen so fast. The taste is just not my favorite. Mac and cheese, on the other hand is so good. My personal favorite is the white cheddar mac and cheese from Trader Joes. All you…

YOU CAN BE ALONE WITHOUT BEING LONELY

This is a sentiment I have to constantly remind myself in college: “You can be alone without being lonely”. It’s not that I feel lonely, it’s quite the opposite actually. I am a very social person and I like to be constantly surrounded with people. Sometimes I’ll go out of my way to be around…

RACIAL INCIDENT AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY

A little over a month of college has gone by and I have decided to be done with my little “hiatus” because writing and making videos makes me feel productive and like I am doing something worthwhile. I also was debating for the past few days on what I should blog about as my grand…

COLLEGE IS A GLORIFIED HIGH SCHOOL

In many ways, so far I’ve seen college as very similar to high school but with more opportunities. I mean this is basically every aspect socially, academically, and athletically. Socially I feel like it has the same components of high school. There is the drama, the few mean people and some cliques. I wish that…

BALANCING FUN AND SCHOOL

For the past few days, I have been experiencing my first week of college. Granted, it was not really college yet, but only the welcome week, I had a lot of fun. It was almost a surreal experience. It felt like a summer camp that was forever going. Talking with my friends from back home, I realized…

MAKING FRIENDS IN THE FIRST WEEK OF COLLEGE

In college, there are there are three main categories of people, the hard core party people, the normal ones, and the very low-key people. I’d like to think I’m one of the normal ones but I have encountered people in every category so far in my college experience. Today I was away for the campus,…

MOVE IN DAY AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY

Today was my college move in day. It started off with my parents and I doing some last-minute dorm shopping and then finally after several trips to different shops coming to my campus to move-in. Moving in was a gruesome process. We had to wait an hour or so in a car line to move…

PACKING FOR COLLEGE IS STRESSFUL

The past couple of days I have been packing for college. It has been a very heart wrenching and stressful process. I think I really took in that I was leaving when I was taking all of my photographs off my bedroom wall. I even got teary eyed when looking at the pictures and remembering all…
