One of the things I’ve been asked to do more often on the blog is open up about my personal life. I’ve always felt like my personal life wasn’t that interesting, but I guess you guys are just as nosy as I am! (lol) However, in the last couple of months, my life has been pretty busy. So busy that I barely had time to invest in the blog. So I thought I would start a new series called Life lately where I would share life updates every once in a while with you! Hopefully, that will help you have a better idea of what is going in my life at the moment. So here’s what’s been happening in my life lately:
The transition from high school to college seems to be this big thing high schoolers are afraid of. And with reasons! A lot of people leave their home to go to the college they want, which means they’re not only living their family and friends behind, but they’re also leaving their comfort zone. I get it, it’s scary. And trust me, I’ve been there.
One of my readers asked me to develop more on how my transition from high school to college changed me in this reader survey and I thought it was a great idea. I’ve changed a lot since high school. I am not the same girl I used to be. And it’s for the best! The transition from high school to college doesn’t have to be scary. View Post
If there’s one thing that I think I have mastered over the years, it’s how to write a killer college paper. Even when I didn’t understand the prompt all that much or when I thought my content was weak, I ended up getting a somewhat decent grade because, here’s the thing: a lot of your grade will probably depend on whether you follow the “college paper recipe” or not. And once you have that figured out, you’ll never fail a paper again, I promise!
So what is that famous recipe, you ask? Well, today I’m spilling my secrets and sharing with you the step-by-step guide that helps me write killer college papers! View Post
I’ve been recently at loss with the type of content I wanted to write for the blog. As a college blogger, I always find summer to be the hardest time when it comes to creating content. I feel like we’re all so done with school and just don’t want to read anything that’s related to it. So I brought back this reader survey and asked around me in the hope that I would find ideas that resonate with me.
Surprisingly, a lot of you requested more personal posts, such as life updates and behind the scenes stuff. I have to admit that my life is not all that interesting, but I do know that I don’t open up often enough to my readers, and that’s something that I’ve been trying to change. A friend of mine suggested that I share a typical day in my life and I loved the idea! I think it can also serve as a life update since, as you may or may not know, I’ve been on an internship for the last 4 months (and still 3 months to go!). Being a marketing intern is basically the only interesting thing I’ve been doing lately. So here’s what a day in the life of a marketing intern is like!
Okay, you’ve made your decision: you’re going to study abroad for a semester! Studying abroad is an amazing opportunity for college students not only academically, but also on a personal level. You get to experience a different country and its culture for several months, you’ll be living on your own, you might learn a new language, you’ll meet a ton of new people, you’ll get to explore new places… and the list goes on!
Now that you’ve made the decision of going forward, you need to start getting your application ready! I created a checklist to help you create the best study abroad application ever and to make you sure you don’t forget anything! And make sure you read until the end because I’m announcing some AMAZING news at the end of the post!
