I started AdventuresOfShyGirl almost three years ago during my freshman year of college. I was a shy, introverted girl who threw herself into a completely different environment away from family and high school friends. This blog was my way of making sense of the change. The person I was at the start is very different… Continue reading Goodbye, Adventures of Shy Girl
Since graduating college, I’ve been reading many books that have spent a long time on my To-Read list and a few that caught my eye at the library. Here are my thoughts on what I’ve read so far and a list of books waiting on my bedroom floor. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman 4.8/5… Continue reading Midsummer’s Reading List
Writer’s block is very real, very annoying, and tough to end. In an effort to end the blockage I have identified two things that I’m struggling with right now(besides writing!). Maybe you can relate to these things – Migraines, and Weight / Body Image, Migraines Migraines are the bane of my existence. When a migraine… Continue reading My Two Struggles
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.

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
