Musings: College and 'adulting'

For those of you who are frequent visitors, thank you by the way and I'm sorry for being so inactive and disorganised and messy. I've decided to have a fresh start on my blog since it has been very dormant for the last few weeks but I will get to the reason for this on this post.


Some of you who follow my Instagram or who have seen the deleted posts and vlog I've done, probably already know that I've recently started college and at the moment I am doing an Associates in Arts degree. The work I do at school as well as keeping up my freelance writing and learning to drive, has consumed my schedule - leaving me no time to plan and write my blog content.

As for my life in college so far - I'd say it's very similar to my previous school in the UK with the only difference being the education system. It's only been 2-3 weeks so not much has happened but, of course, I will do another update in the following weeks or months on anything interesting.


The past month has been drastic and extremely busy - from sorting out my college tuition fees, sorting out my priorities in regards to money and work and receiving my learner's license. Being on the verge into adulthood is a lot of pressure, and because of these new responsibilities forced upon me I may not have the time to write every week. If you are an adult yourself, or who are also experiencing something similar, let me know any advice? I'd appreciate it :D

This is just a little update on my life so far. If you have any questions, feel free to send them to me!

Thanks for reading always.

  1. DUDE I FEEL YOU. I'm 17 as well and although I'm not in college yet (senior of high school, CLASS OF 2018 WHOOP WHOOOOP) I'm under pressure applying for college as well as keeping up with my high school courses and participating in extracurriculars and home responsibilities and filling out scholarship apps bc that is the only way I can attend college and--yeah I'm hecka busy haha.

    My blog is also suffering from semi-dormancy, and I really miss it so much :'( I'm trying to post more this month so we'll see how that goes!

    Your blog is impossibly cute and this post is very relatable ♥

    1. YESSSS, RIGHT?!! As young people, we get put so much pressure to do well in school, do well in life and move on to become the average human beings and make average contributions to society haha

      And good luck in high school and applying for your scholarships/college! I know it's tough, but I also know you'll make it through :D

      And omg thank you very much <3
