Last week I turned nineteen which led me to reminiscing about the ‘good ‘ol days.’  My ponderings led me to realize that in just ten years a lot has changed in today’s youth. When I was nine I didn’t have a cell phone, and neither did any of my friends. We only went online to feed our neopets and email each other, and we most certainly didn’t have any social media accounts. But I realize now that a lot has changed – the little girl I babysit had an iPad before she even reached double digits, and 10 year olds are… View Post

I would be a liar if I said that part of me didn’t want to be Mia Thermopolis. In case you aren’t familiar, Mia Thermopolis is the crown Princess of Genovia. She was swept away by her grandmother Clarisse and transformed from a socially awkward wallflower into well, a princess. And a darn good one at that!

In this day and age if we have a question – we automatically pull out our smartphones to look up the answer. While I still don’t… View Post

Stepping outside of my comfort zone is something that I’ve always been hesitant about. I am a lot of things, but brave hasn’t always been a quality that I’ve possesed. In fact, starting this very blog was a huge step out of my comfort zone. I’ve had two blogs before mostlymorgan, blogspot ones that I told nobody about. The first one was a failed venture when I was fourteen, but the second I took more seriously. I wrote posts that I was proud of and that I thought other people would really like – and I was right. One post took off on… View Post

If you find this post helpful, check out my top packing tips for college students! Going into college freshman year is scary. Anyone who tells you anything otherwise is either lying or superhuman. It is fine to admit that you’re a little bit terrified of this brand new situation. Visiting somewhere where you know nobody is bad in itself, but when you’re being dropped off there and told “see you in three months!” you suddenly realize just how alone you are. I just finished up my freshman year of college and I have learned a lot. There is so much that I… View Post
