Regrets of a Fanciful First-Years 2016/2017

Classes end next week. Can you believe that? I’m almost a rising sophomore. I’ve got so much planned for summer, let alone this next semester, but it’s always good to take a moment to step back and take in everything that you’ve done right and wrong. My first year in college honestly was a mess….

6 Reasons Why I Hate Studyblrs

This post was originally supposed to be only 3 reasons, but when I started getting into it, I realized why I’ve stuck to the WordPress blogging sphere instead of jumping onto the Tumblr train.

John Keats’ Critics

Hey guys! Out of all of the books that we’ve studied over the past two years, John Keats was the hardest for me to get critics of. Most of the critics of his time HATED Leigh Hunt, and kinda didn’t notice Keats own work even when they were writing essays on why it sucks. Luckily,…
