A blank page is both daunting and exciting to a writer. It represents both emptiness and endless possibilities. I assume it’s equivalent to an artist staring at a blank canvas. However, one chooses to interpret it, it’s time to rebuild myself from a foundation of past experiences, an open mind, and sheer wonderment. Over the… Continue reading A Blank Page.
Three years ago, on a warm August day, my family and I drove in a packed car up to college. We arrived at my new res. hall to be greeted by the “helping hands” and the building RAs. My first year on campus was full of new people, experiences, and food. Most of the friends… Continue reading What Do You Mean I’m Done? | Adventures Of Shy Girl
Things have a way of sneaking up on you. Like graduating from college. How did it get to the point where there is less than a month left? Who let that happen? Less than a month. I can’t wrap my head around that fact. It’s weird to have been able to completely disregard registering for… Continue reading Impending Changes.
It feels like I was just filling out forms to confirm my attendance of college and paying fees for being in the Three-Year-Degree program. Everyone told me to be careful, that it would go by fast. I understood where they were coming from but I never thought it would go by this fast. My college… Continue reading Final Semester Is A Go | Adventures Of Shy Girl
Four. I watched four episodes of NCIS today after being distracted from my homework. Season 7. The basic storyline is always the same, some bad person does a bad thing to a Sailor or Marine and Gibbs and his team solve the crime. Still, it’s addictive and I binge watch it daily—that’s how I’ve managed… Continue reading Four | Adventures Of Shy Girl
I fell off the writing wagon. These past few months have been a whirlwind of stresses and struggles, continuing to write in the throes of it was impossible. Writing has been a way to clear my head for many years, it’s helped me solve many personal problems, and come to terms with loss. It’s my… Continue reading A New Start | Adventures Of Shy Girl
Once again, it’s been awhile. I didn’t mean to stay away but trying to catch up on all of my school work filled every moment of my days outside of classes and work. Then, the longer I was away the harder it was to come back. So much has happened since I came back to… Continue reading A Post To Fill The Void | Fall 2016 | Adventures Of Shy Girl
It’s safe to say that my senior year of college is not going the way I expected. Despite my best efforts, I quickly fell behind in most of my classes. Circumstances beyond my control caused extreme anxiety as I was in the middle of changing my medicine and I started to sporadically miss classes. Through… Continue reading Falling Behind | Fall 2016
Time out. As a kid, hearing those words could ruin your day. As an athlete, it brings water, and a break(though maybe also some harsh words from your coach). For me, it means being picked up in the middle of a semester, in the middle of a school week and going home. The last few… Continue reading Time Out | Adventures Of Shy Girl
Each of my college semesters have been filled with five classes, or 18/19 credits, and I’ve always been able to handle it. However, this semester has turned out to be so much more challenging than I anticipated and I find myself in a severe depression. My semester did not start off well. Throughout the month… Continue reading Withdrawal From A Class |Adventures Of Shy Girl
