What to Do When Your Dream Rejects You

so as some of you may know, I got rejected from my last grad school last week. So I made a list of ways to cope

  1. Cry


2. Tell your friends so they can tell you how awesome you are anyway I love y’all


(and they can hug you when you cry)

3. Cry some more (it’s your dream – you’re 100% allowed to be really upset)


4. Pull yourself together and come up with a new (and improved) game plan:



In all seriousness though friends, being rejected is hard – especially when it’s from what you think you’re supposed to be doing with your life. How you move forward and reconcile will go on to make the next few days, weeks, months, or years, a lot harder or easier.

I’ve chosen to put grad school on hold for the moment – maybe I need more experience. So I’m going to work on my book, (thanks mom – I pretty much have the most supportive parents) and try to get experience working with some non-profits in the Detroit/A2/(and eventually) Toledo area that support and raise awareness for literacy, education, stuff like that.

But for now, I’m still a senior trying to graduate.



So it’s Been Awhile (V-Log 12.6.16)

Hello friends!

So this blog has been on the backburner for the past few months, and I really am sorry about that because it isn’t something I want to stop doing as I enjoy it a lot. But life has been incredibly hectic with NANOWRIMO, (which I finished!!) scrambling to make sure everything gets done for my grad school applications, (easier said than done) and finishing this second-to-last-semester of undergrad as strongly as possible.

That being said, with finals and then break coming up, I should have a lot more time to write and share with you all and I’m really looking forward to it! In the meantime, please enjoy this v-log!


P.S. yes I did cut off all my hair and I love it!
