I don't know how it's possible that people are already mentioning "senior year" and "graduation" and "full-time jobs". Some of my best friends are graduating in just a few weeks, and passing the torch onto us to lead. Cliche as it is, I literally feel like freshman year was yesterday. I feel like I am...

They always say that if you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. I have always been a writer. In 2006, I was writing songs just like my idol Taylor Swift. In 2010, after reading the entire Twilight Series, I wrote a 41,000 word extension story of the Twilight saga.... Continue Reading →


I found out a few days ago that I have officially been named editor in chief of Sacred Heart's school newspaper next year. It's something that I've wanted for so long. For years. As I applied, I held my breath, not wanting to get my hopes up. I knew I was highly qualified, but not... Continue Reading →

In the past few weeks, my roommate and I have been constantly recalling memories from our years at college so far, especially lately, as we design our apartment for our last year. We have been inseparable since we began getting to know each other, 3 years ago to the date, before we had even graduated... Continue Reading →


For a while after it happened, people have been asking if I'm okay, and at first I wasn't. The days didn't seem to get better. A few weeks later, it started to get better, so slightly. I still feel that way, a month later, trying to take one step at a time. Trying to sit... Continue Reading →


Yesterday was another normal day. I worked out after class and then headed to the dining hall to grab lunch. The same dining hall where it all first started.
