EXPANDING MY CIRCLE

I have always considered myself to be a social person, but a lot of the social aspect stops at the environment I met the specific person. For instance, if I meet someone in class that I think is pretty dope I might talk to them a lot in class and have that thought, They would be…

GPA DOES NOT EQUAL INTELLIGENCE

One conversation I dread having at college is talking about the grade point averages people had in high school. It’s not that I’m embarrassed of my high school gpa, I just sincerely feel like it does not matter. I feel like basing any judgements on gpa just devalues any other accomplishments that person has made….

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…
