The “winter blues” got the best of me this year.

More so than ever before. I’d never felt it this strongly. I spent about a month having ZERO motivation to do anything, and what sucks the most about the timing of it was that it started around the same time as the new semester. So, I did a few initial assignments and then got very behind. I’ve mostly caught up in one class, but … Read More The “winter blues” got the best of me this year.

I have always loved New Year’s.

Both Eve and Day. I’ve loved it when I’ve spent it with family, when I’ve spent it with friends, when I’ve spent it alone, when my dog was my midnight kiss, and as I’ve spent it with my Love for a few years now. That moment when we move from the end of one period of time to the beginning of another… it’s a … Read More I have always loved New Year’s.

I might want to be a sports writer.

If … Read More The Story of the Roman Family

I couldn’t decide on what to write next.

I had an idea, but it wasn’t coming out right. It was sounding more like a persuasive piece on why one should do what I was talking about, not just my meandering thoughts on what I was talking about. And then, every idea I had after that was missing something. My voice wasn’t there. Everything felt forced, like I was painstakingly tryyyyying to maaaaake a blog post … Read More I couldn’t decide on what to write next.

So, I’m actually not new to the blogging thing.

I’ve had a few over the years, plus online journals. Each served its own purpose, such as chronicling the goings-on of my teenaged and college-aged life, giving me an outlet for creativity, showcasing my work, and simply being a conglomeration of reposts and some original posts to facilitate various obsessions (Yeah, I’m looking at you, Tumblr.). This one is much different. It took a … Read More So, I’m actually not new to the blogging thing.
