5K For The Kids

Happy Tuesday night, folks! I just want to post about my weekend. It really was mundane, I did a bunch of homework, cleaned my room, did some errands and just relaxed. Sometimes, I wish that there was more time in the weekend. We could all use some more time, right? Anyways, the highlight of my […]

Hope College’s Annual Chicago Trip!

Hey Folks! As I promised, here is another post, and it’s a happier one too! Last weekend, I had the privilege with 2 other SAC (Student Activities Committee) members to plan the annual Chicago trip. This trip had so much planning behind it, and I didn’t realize this until I jumped in the bandwagon. But, […]

State of Emergency

For all of you out there, you may have heard through the media that a super typhoon nearly destroyed my beloved homeland, the Philippines. I just wanted to post about it because the Philippines is so close and dear to me. Before I continue, let’s clear the air on a few things: Hurricanes and typhoons […]

It’s OK to be Social

Alrighty folks, I’m back again with another post. Great right? So here is my “thesis” of this blog. Although college has a large focus on academics, it is OK to be social. I felt as if I was writing a formal paper there for a sec. Anyways, yes. As a nursing major, I am completely […]

May The Odds Ever Be In Your Favor

Happy Monday to all! I know that last Monday I posted a blog on realizing that Monday is a fresh new start, whether last week was bad or not. This Monday, you’ll really need to start fresh. Why? It’s REGISTRATION WEEK, people! Hence the title, I know it’s from the Hunger Games trilogy, but it seriously […]

Everyone’s Favorite Day!

Despite many exams, assignments, and projects being due on Friday, everyone still loves Friday. I can guarantee it is everyone’s favorite day (in the weekday of course!) If you’re reading this, give yourself a pat on the back. You made it through this week. I know for some, it was just such a draining week. […]

Stress For Dummies (or College Students)

Stress is probably one of the most used words in college. “Oh, how are you doing today?” “Stressed.” That’s my response at least. But I just wanted to post on stress, because it’s an issue we all face. Usually, stress is a great thing, and is a common thing. In healthy amounts, it helps us […]

Last Week of October!

To the not so morning people, HAPPY MONDAY! To the rare morning people, HAPPY MONDAY ALSO! I don’t know if anyone of you realize, but today is the last Monday of October. Yeah, four more days until November. It’s simply crazy to think about. This semester if flying, and sooner or later, it’ll be over. […]

The Nursing Major

I’m not trying to be biased or anything, but the Nursing Major at Hope College is one of the most rigorous majors, and it is very competitive. It is awesome in this aspect because it provides a structured class schedule so you’re all set with a four year plan. In this blog, I’m going to […]

Big School vs. Little School

I know it’s beyond Wednesday, so this week is practically over. But, I just wanted to share with all of you my experiences from last weekend! So, Friday, October 18th, one of my best buddies and I left Holland, MI and road-tripped to Ann Arbor, the home of the University of Michigan main campus. I’m […]
