What Do You Mean I’m Done? | Adventures Of Shy Girl

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.

Final Semester Is A Go | Adventures Of Shy Girl

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.

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.

Can’t Ignore It Any Longer | Adventures Of Shy Girl

Back in April, I went to my doctor because my anxiety medicine wasn’t working. Together we decided that the best solution was to increase the doses of the medicine I was already on. Since that increase I’ve been super stable. Possibly, the most stable I’ve ever been.

Getting From Point A To Point B | Adventures Of Shy Girl

A good chunk of graduates end up working in a different field from the one they studied in college. I’ve known this for a while. It’s a fact that has been thrown at me a fair amount.
