I will be moving to New York City, as I’ve accepted a spot in a Fellowship Program! Although this is a program I’ve applied for earlier this year, the interviewing process and actually getting a spot happened so FAST.

May Goals + Procrastination

This post is late, which is great because it fits in with the theme of last month which was procrastination. How many times do we I have to talk about procrastination before we I say enough is enough? How many times will I have to rush through an article, a blog post, or an assignment the night…

Aspiring Writers Workshop Recap

Man, oh man. I took a few days before I could sit down and write this post, partly because I had so many emotions that I didn’t know how to put them in blog post form, and partly because I was soo exhausted from everything I’ve learned in those five days. As I’ve said before, I…
