February 14, 2018. Valentine’s Day. Ash Wednesday. The beginning of the Lenten season of the Christian liturgical calendar.

I started my second semester of college today! I feel like this is now a good time to make a little post about what I’ve learned about myself, school, and life since I’ve been away at college.

Social Media Purge

Comparison is the thief of joy -Theodore Roosevelt For at least the past 3 years, every time a new year would come around I would always consider unfollowing a bunch of people I no longer actively communicate with in real life on social media.
