    What I Wish I Knew Before Moving In With My Boyfriend

    Intro Last year my boyfriend and I moved in together and we thought it was going to be amazing and it has been, but I wish I knew a few things beforehand. Finding an apartment together was tough, because we weren’t able to look together at most places since we were in a long distance relationship. That being said our move-in process was delayed a little however, everything ended up working out and I like how we ended up at our little home. Someone will ALWAYS feel like they are doing more for the other person and doing more in the relationship overall. I’ve read in articles in the past…

    First Day of My Last Day of School

    It’s so crazy to think I started my last first day of school for my undergraduate degree this past Monday. I can’t believe I’m 3 months away from earning my Bachelor’s degree. I can’t believe I’m so close to earning my second degree. My main goal for my last semester is to do my very best and earn the highest GPA I can. My mom didn’t finish school and although my father did I never had his support growing up. My stepfather has always been tough on me so earning my degree at the end of the year will be the most accomplishing thing in my life to date that…

Thankfully, I didn’t have to stay in a hotel for orientation. Normally people go with their families, but mine didn’t…

    My community college experience

    Community college was one of the best decisions I made in my life! In high school, I always told myself I wasn’t going to go to community college. I thought community college was for those who couldn’t get into an actual university. I thought it was beneath me, the truth is I didn’t want to stay in my hometown. After realizing I couldn’t afford to attend a university because of costs, I decided community college is better than no college. Sure my mom and step father stressed to me how important an education is, but they never really supported me with my education. They didn’t help me pay for it,…
