I’ve been mulling over this post for a while because I want to get it right. It’s important to me that I’m open and honest about my anxiety, and this blog is something that has definitely been helpful. So let’s talk about counseling. My first experience with counseling was horrible. I had just started college… Continue reading Counseling: A Journey | Adventures Of Shy Girl
Just under a year ago, I wrote an article titled, “4 Reasons Why I Don’t Have A Driver’s License”. In it, I listed the main reasons why I didn’t want to get my license; Distracted Drivers, Speed Demons, Personal Experience, and Anxiety. Basically, I don’t trust other drivers or myself. Before I even reached 16, I… Continue reading Driving: Why I’m Doing It and How It’s Going | Adventures Of Shy Girl
It’s a situation that I’ve run into often: a friend invites me to hang out with them. I give a noncommittal answer, and try my best to change the subject.

I always expect the last day to be dramatically different than all the rest; like the finale of a fireworks display, or a dramatic ending to a play. However, it started and ended just like any other day, with me not wanting to get… Continue reading Last Day of Classes 2016
I’ve been told throughout my life that I look like my mother, and it’s true. Standing at 5’7, with long brown hair and her bangs pulled back, and a freckled face, she’s beautiful. My mom and I share the same mouth shape and nose. We even get the same lines on our faces when we… Continue reading My Mother.
With just a week of classes and four days of finals left, I’m antsy. My attention span has shrunk to the size of a pea and this spells trouble. I still have five finals, a project, a regular test, and a quiz to get through but my attention has been stolen by thoughts of sunny… Continue reading End Of The Semester.
I’m currently taking a Creative Writing: Nonfiction class with my advisor. He’s one of my favorite professors/people. When you hand in a writing assignment to him, he really takes to the time to read your story and give you suggestions on what to fix and how to expand it.
