Now I know we are under 5 posts in on this old blog and all of you are probably thinking ‘shut the f&%k up about school already’ but that is what my life was. University was the most interesting thing about my life. I had absolutely no social life outside of lunch after class with … More October 2012
After the first month of university I felt pretty overwhelmed and didn’t know how to express it.

I was more than excited to start the journey of University and figure out who I was without the kind of structure that had predicated my life before. There was also a sense of naïvety.
