They say you learn something new every day. That’s probably true, especially if you’re going to school. However, sometimes I want to learn more than one new thing every day, and sometimes I want to learn about something completely outside of my area of study. On those days, I go to YouTube, a place […]

  The first few weeks of the semester have come and gone, and by now people have probably settled back into their daily routines. While routines are good and helpful, they tend to make life less exciting. I do the same things almost every day, and entire weeks can pass by without any variation. If, […]

As a high schooler, I was so excited to choose my own classes once I got into college. I was ready to take classes that I was actually interested in, and where I might actually enjoy challenging assignments (looking at you, AP Biology).

Last February I spontaneously created a folder in Google Drive titled “Thoughts and Feelings.” I remember I was upset about something, and I couldn’t accurately articulate my feelings to anyone, so I decided to write them down. It wasn’t until I finished my first entry that I realized I had created a journal. I’ve been […]
