I Survived My Second Year of College

I would like to start this off by saying the fattest, sincerest apology for not uploading hardly any content recently. It has been absolutely insane. To keep it brief, I came back to Nashville from college; in the midst of preparing to come back, I had to pack (and I’m the worst packer in the world), do a presentation (where I ended it by calling myself a potato), and had to help take care of my family. During all of this, I was not getting any sleep — like, there were several nights where I only slept about fifteen minutes– and it caught up to me. While trying to catch up on sleep and get back to being my non-sluggish self, I had to tend to family matters in Nashville and am still trying to figure out the whole job situation (because ya girl needs money). Needless to say, it’s been crazy, and I desperately need this break from college (honestly, I kind of need a break from life).

Speaking of college, last year, I went over my first year of college in song and had a blast doing it, so I decided to do it again for my second year. This year was much more insane; there were moments this year when I was definitely more emotionally distraught than last year, and I pushed my body and brain to do things it had never done before. I’m not going to get into too much detail about the school year (because a good portion of it is sad and will take a bit of time to explain), so I will focus on some of the highlights (I guess one would say) of the school year.

when I made new, amazing friends and developed close bonds…

Song: “More Than Words” by Little Mix ft. Kamille

Song: “Jesus, Take The Wheel” by Carrie Underwood

when I realized I’m better living by myself…

*I know this song was a message to the paparazzi, but this was literally my mood any time I walked into my dorm room; it seemed appropriate.

I’m sorry that it’s been a while, but I’m starting to feel a lot better. There are tons of blog posts in my drafts, and I am working to get those to my liking (not perfect because perfect doesn’t exist) to publish for you guys.

In the mean time, what song or situation do you resonate with the most? I would love to know.
