Confessions for Procrastinators

Whether you’re just getting off of Spring Break or have been off for a few weeks the end of this school year has almost arrived. Summer plans are being made and you may feel like slowing down and preparing for this well-deserved break is an option.

Too bad your professors don’t share the same sentiment.

In which professors want summer break like us, but are not going to make the road to summer any easier.

Confession: Think More “Present” and Less” Future

Never a dull picture from her!

Coming from me the idea presented in the title is ironic; hypocritical, even. Anyone who knows me knows that I am always preparing for the future. If you’re one of my close friends you know I am always worried about the future. I’m the “more ‘future’ and less ‘present’” type of girl. I always need to know what I’m doing next, how I’m going to do it, and how it will prepare me for the future.

It’s not healthy. Actually, it’s a little tiring, tremendously overwhelming, and outrageously annoying.

In which dreaming is great, but living is even better.

I know, I know. Haven’t I already written a post similar to this? Well, yes Madame-Point-Out-The-Author’s-Faults, but there always things to learn about college. Also, this post comes after many individuals have found themselves accepted into college and have finally chosen one to attend.

So without further ado:

Confession: To Flight or To Fight? That Is The Question

Disclaimer: This post is a response to a prompt found on the “Daily Post”. It is also themed for future and current college students in honor of the month of March: college decision month. Thank you.

Prompt: Write about your strongest memory of heart-pounding, belly-twisting nervousness: what caused the adrenaline? Was it justified? How did you respond?

February 8, 2013. There was no e-mail; no phone call. However, I knew since I turned in my application that today was THE day: the day I would find out if I had been accepted into the most important school on my list.

I turned in my application five months prior to this day. Within this time period I had been accepted into two of the other colleges I applied for. My confidence level had grown.

The confident boost was not enough, though, as I fearfully waited to hear back from the number one school in the state.

In which college involves flying or fighting, your author chooses the latter, and this post is meant to encourage you to do the same.

Confession: Spring Break’s Expectations vs. Realities

Wild parties and the beach are what most prospective college students expect of Spring Break prior to college. Wild parties and the beach are not what most receive. Home is a common Spring Break location, whether planned or not.

Unbelievable? Well, maybe this list of what to expect when expecting Spring Break will make it believable.

In which plans aren’t set in stone, beach bodies are not achieved, and sweats are the ultimate Spring Break look.
