Last post til Fall Semester

Well, here we go– last post tilĀ fall semester starts up! This past semester felt like both an eternity and an instant at the same time. I hope that whoever has read my blog has found some educationalĀ and/or entertainment value with it. It’s been fun blogging and I can’t wait to blog more in the fall! [...]

How to Fit In At CCBC! (SPOILER ALERT: You Shouldn’t Try To)

As I look out the window at a stop light, a flock of public school 8th grade girls cross the street. There they go, with their form-fitting Aeropostale shirts and light blue super-short jean shorts and purple backpacks. There they go, with their fluffy, long, straight hair. Not one looks unique, not one behaves uniquely. [...]

How To Ace Your Ambassador/Mentor Interview In Just One Cheesy Anagram!

Did you apply to be a CCBC Student Life Ambassador or FYE Mentor? Are you excited and/or nervous for the upcoming interview process? Then all you need to do is *mega cheesy voice* be DEAFS!

The Superpowers of Color

Let’s talk about clothes! Well, clothing colors, to be exact. I am going to guess that when choosing what clothes to wear for the day, you probably aren’t thinking too much about clothing colors.

Here are a few short stories that I wrote for my Creative Writing class. I am sharing them here because I think that perhaps some people might be curious about this “writing” that I speak of. Each title will be a link to the story, as pasting them here would be ridiculous. The Measure Of [...]

CCBC Teachers & Their Classes

Some people might be trying not think about school at all. Others might be starting their summer courses soon. Still others might be already thinking about fall classes. (I am not one of those people. I am, in fact, one of those last-minute register-ers who thinks and thinks about what classes to take and then [...]

Stuff CCBC Students Say

The time has come. Oh, the time has come. I have been compiling these quotes since the second week of class this semester. This is the most beautiful thing ever to grace this meager little blog, a priceless compilation of absolute ridiculousness and oddly relatable statements. These are odd things that I have heard CCBC [...]

Sappy Quotes That Are Important

The title says it all. I’ve decided that I’m going to select some quotes that I find meaning, and post them here. Serious quotes, quotes that make you think. Quotes that should be beneficial to college students who have just started their summer break!    

Think Like Hermione

If you’re from 16 to 30, then you probably grew up reading the Harry Potter books and watching the movies. And if you’re older or younger, then you’ve probably watched or read Harry Potter anyway, just because Harry Potter is just THAT GOOD.
