Dear Writer’s Block,

This week has been a little rough for me in deciding what it is I want to write about.  I have a long list of topics I want to cover at some point, but none of them were interesting to me this week.  At first I thought it was just a mild case of writer’s block, but then I realized …

Dear Yocum 217,

I’m sitting in a room full of boxes, wondering where the time has gone.  I am one final exam away from loading up the car and heading home for the summer.  Has it really been nine months already? I vividly remember move-in day last August; the chaos, the people, the tears, the excitement.  And now here I am.  Everything in …

Dear Mom,

According to the dictionary, a mother is “a woman in relation to a child or children to whom she has given birth,” but to me, she is so much more.  A mother is a teacher, supporter, role model, and best friend, just to name a few.  My mother is so much more to me than she will ever realize.  She …

Dear Big Accomplishment,

Life is full of accomplishments.  Big and small. Every morning you get out of bed and you’ve accomplished the task of getting out of bed. Good job, you go!! This week, though, I accomplished something a little bigger than that, and I have decided to share my story with you today. As many of you know, I am an interior …

Dear Fast Paced World,

It seems that ever since I’ve returned from spring break my mind has been going non-stop.  There’s always something to think about, worry about, somewhere to be, something to do, it’s hard to catch a break!  That’s the thing about college most of the time.  The workload is never ending.  Even when you do sit down to take time for …

Dear Semester Finale

Spring is one of my favorite seasons.  While my allergies may hate it, I just love seeing everything bloom, and life return to the world after a cold winter.  The air always seems fresher, the sun brighter, and Abbi happier ;) Spring break, however, is always such a tease.  A relaxing week off is just what I needed, and while …

Dear Tomorrow,

The future can be a very scary thing sometimes. Do not fret.  It is natural to fear the unknown.  I always worry about what I will be doing in ten years, but like I discussed in last weeks post, worrying now about something so far away will not change things. In reality, the future is nothing that anyone should be …

Dear Today,

Take a minute to look around you and take in everything that is going on.  I am sitting on my bed, one of my best friends to my left, another one on the floor by my feet putting away snacks. The Bachelor is on.  This dorm room, though very small, is full of many fond memories.  I have several tabs …

Dear Yesterday,

What’s in the past is in the past.  It cannot be changed, and it should not be regretted.  Each and every one of us has a past; a story that is uniquely ours; one that has shaped us into the individuals that we are today.  Many people, however, have a hard time letting go of the past. I was one …

Dear Second Semester

Wow! One semester down and the second one is fast approaching.  I am already settled back into my dorm and it feels like I haven’t missed a beat.  I have spent my few days off catching up with friends, running errands, finding classes, and trying to mentally prepare myself for the months ahead. I’ve been having some mixed feelings.  Part …
