Back to School!

Winter break is over and I find myself back in my dorm, getting ready for another semester of college. I could easily stress and share with you all of the stressors in my life, but I don’t want them to affect you too. (Kidding, not really)

First I want to talk about the shootings and killings at the Mall in Columbia in Maryland. I actually work at that mall, and the shooting occurred during my regular shift. Thankfully my last shift at the mall was Thursday since I only work during the school year, but it was still scary. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims, mall go-ers, and my co-workers of course for having to go through the traumatic experience. Thankfully the shooting wasn’t near my store and my co-workers were able to evacuate before the mall was locked down. This event hit so close to home for me, which is why I’m taking it so hard. It wasn’t luck that I did not have to work, but still makes me feel lucky that I didn’t have to go through that. Events like this make me thankful for my life, the people I know, and everything that I have. Life doesn’t last forever and this was a reminder of that.

On a less serious note, I’m excited for another semester at school with my friends and to learn more! Knowledge is a powerful thing, and I happen to love learning as much as I can (nerdy, yeah).

Good luck to everyone who beginning school again! Make your semester count and have fun in between learning!

New Year, New Blog

Hello all!

I have like 3 followers, regardless, I’ve decided to make this my permanent blog! It began as the home of my Advanced Argument English class project this past semester, but I really enjoy writing about fashion trends for women and the difference in opinion between men and women. I have decided to go further than that and post things relevant to my life such as current events, any kind of trend, lifestyle posts, and updates on my life. I will try to post once a week, but this is one of many projects I have under my belt this new year.

With that in mind, if you want to read anything, want me to review anything, or have suggestions on where I should start, I’d love to hear!

I look forward to pursuing this project and finally establishing a place for me to write!

Happy 2014,

emily
