Alone

I feel so alone right now; I have no one to turn to.

Most of my friends are back at school, but do they even miss me?

Some people say they’re too cool, but I actually like to learn.

I wish someone could hug and kiss me, and tell me that everything is going to be okay.

But it seems I can’t do that anymore; I have to rely on myself.

I just wish I could easily take my own confidence from its shelf.

They Miss Me

Recently, I received emails from two of my former professors at Randolph-Macon College. Saying “former” sounds weird.  I still consider them my professors.  Is the fact that I graduated ever going to hit me?

Revisiting Elementary School

I should preface this with some clarification:  I say “elementary school” because I didn’t really go to “middle school”.  I was at the same school from kindergarten until eighth grade.

School Nostalgia

Seeing all the back-to-school commercials lately has been really weird.  I’d always looked forward to shopping.  Clothes shopping wasn’t (still isn’t – I’m not a typical girl) my favorite, but getting new supplies was my favorite part.

Summer?

I can’t believe it’s already August.  Summer has flown by.  Then again, it doesn’t really feel like Summer because I graduated college and I’m not going back to school this Fall.  I’m really sad about not going back.

Change is Hard

I’ve never liked change.  I don’t think anyone ever does.  Sure, I’m excited for my future, but that’s different.  I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder about doing things the way everyone else does them.  I don’t want anything special to make me stand out.

Literary Domination

I know I’m on my A game when I completely dominate a discussion in class.  I know I should probably be quiet when I start cutting people off.  It was the best and worst of times in English today.  My discussion post was so on point that it led to other people’s own points in their posts.  I just had a lot of randomly relevant thoughts today I guess.  Mental health days work wonders.

Heads up

Just because I’m not finished with The Kill Order yet doesn’t mean I’m not going to finish it. Mom thinks that because I’m not done with it yet it’s not a good book. This couldn’t be further from the truth. I think I’m just really excited about school. I go back this weekend.

This means that I will not be able to devote as much time to the blog as I have been. I will try to post when I can, but it will not be on a regular basis. Thanks for understanding!

Wizards and School

You know, I’ve always wondered what witches and wizards do until they turn 11. Do they go to Muggle School or something?
