Seniors: We Don’t Know What We’re Doing

This week I have an update on both my New Year Resolutions  and the series we started last semester called Do Seniors Even Know What They’re Doing? So far this semester has been stressful.

So I’ve literally spent my entire day studying. As a result, it explains why I am writing this post so late but I know I’m not the only one up right now who needs to study. Before I fall asleep (probably as soon as my head hits the pillow) I have a list of things […]
