Alright Summer, I’m Ready for College Already

Before I started college I would spend literally weeks fantasizing about summer. The perfect summer camp, summer job, summer fling, summer barbecues (mmmm cole slaw), whatever. Daydreaming about all the fun I was to have in the summer days ahead was the only way I managed to keep my eyes open during those high school classes that miserably lasted through June.

College Q&A: Living at Home During College

Question: I will be a senior in highschool this upcoming year (2010-2011), but instead of going to high school, I'm taking classes full time at a local university in a joint-enrollment program my state offers. The university gives joint-enrolled students the opportunity to live on campus, but you have to pay for it yourself. With all the economic crap thats been going on lately, my parents can't afford to pay for a dorm and the deadline has already passed.

True Story: I’m Spending My Summer In The Country

The summer before my freshman year of college, I packed my bags into the back of my car and drove to the big city. Cue the music, feel the rain on your skin, no one else can feel it for you… My blonde hair was whipping in the wind, my shades on. I was starting a whole new life, and although Raleigh, NC is nothing like LA and my life is far from an episode of The Hills, it was really exciting.

Summer Break Is Almost Here – Yay?

Spring semester is winding down, and when we're stuck in the library for 24 hours at a time with our eyes glued to a textbook and an energy drink surgically attached to our hands, it's easy to count down to seconds until summer vacation. But as we all know, life back at home can be a drag an adjustment.

School Is Coming! End Summer Right.

After spending all of spring semester counting down the days until summer break started, I'm now faced with the end of summer and even more school. Where did the time go? What was I doing when the sun was shining and the waves were crashing? Oh yeah, I was probably online.

Living at Home For the Summer? Rock on!

The only thing harder than saying goodbye to your roommate for the summer is packing up your dorm... and mopping all of the dried beer of the floor. And scrubbing your desk where pizza sauce has been encrusted for months. And figuring out how to pack it all into your two-door. Yeah, moving out sucks. But moving IN with your parents again... well, let's face it. It rocks.

Life After College: My Deep Pit of Despair

Considering the fact that I've done nothing but sulk (with the occasional break for a anxiety panic attack over my future), it's relatively amazing that I was able to find time in my self despair to write this blog. Graduating college is worse than I ever imagined.
