7 of My Favorite Ways To Stay Positive

Staying positive in a world that is laden with negativity is not easy. It’s like trying to walk through mud and keep your shoes clean.

Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting My Freshman Year of College

I love being a college student! It is a lot of work, but I enjoy being challenged. I love knowing that I am taking small steps towards my future. Last semester, I had 5 classes. I took a couple years off from school after high school, so getting back into a routine of going to […]
