  • hello everyone! idk how many of you remember me, but it's been well over two years since i logged here. not going to lie i almost cried from the nostalgia. i have a lot to say, so i put it in the this spoiler... very surprised i remembered to do that lol. you can read it if you want, but if not i just wanted to say hi! i'm going to be active on here again, i miss this!
    Spoiler! :
    well i'm a senior in high school now, i'll be a legal adult in less than a month! it's been a rough few years, i'll be real. last time i logged in was october of 2022, which was kind of the beginning of the end for me. to be frank, i made some terrible choices that ended with legal trouble and a long trip to the psychiatric hospital. plus side, i finally got help with the ED that has been controlling me for years. i've made quite a few more trips to the psych ward since then, ended up in residential treatment for about 3 months. i missed most of my senior year. failed two classes so i am barely graduating. it's been a lonely few months, i will not lie. i had to distance myself from pretty much everyone i was friends with, which resulted in many tears. but i just celebrated one year of sobriety about two weeks ago so that was super exciting! i did get accepted into a good college, however it is only 20 minutes from my house, but i am living in the dorms so i finally get to escape my family. i started dating my childhood best friend, who i actually dated my freshman year of high school. some of you may remember me posting about him, and then writing lots of sad poetry when he broke up with me. lol. we've been together for 8 months now. he actually stayed with me while i was away at residential. i have senioritis real bad, i will be very honest. but i only take four classes so i can't complain. i got a new puppy last july, and he's turning one this sunday! i love him so so so much, he saved my life, gave me a reason to keep going. yes, i still love harry styles, but recently i've been more into taylor swift, olivia rodrigio, chappell roan, fleetwood mac, abba, greta van fleet, and mac miller. i'm in a rock band too! our name is the fancy toothpicks... i don't want to talk about it. i'm the lead singer and pianist. we've been together for a year now! i have come back to my faith in the past year. i joined a new church and it changed my life, it's my family now. i'm actually going to be their PAID worship intern this summer! i still have the same job i've had since may of 2022, but i got promoted from host to server, so that's awesome. i don't think there is much else to say. i'm not the same person i was. but i do want to become active on here again, some of my best friends and favorite memories were made on here. anyway, if you took the time to read all of this... i love you and appreciate you! can't wait to be on here again!!!

    LadyMysterio I MISSED YOU HI
    I'm so glad your doing better!!

  • tips on how to write college essays? im failing my two college classes because i dont know how to write papers.

    alliyah Is there something you are specifically having problems with?

    Don't know if this will help you - but here's some quick tips:

    Spoiler! :

    Do an essay by reverse outlining if you are stuck.
    Write your outline and then fill in the spots as you feel inspired / gather information to support your argument.
    Typically an essay's format will be:
    Introduction Paragraph
    - Introduces Material / Subject of Essay
    - Makes the Main Argument of the Essay in a CLEAR Sentence
    - Explains where the essay is going
    Body Paragraphs
    - These support the Main Argument in an order that "makes sense" (that might mean they're introduced chronologically or by theme)
    - These typically include support from the subject you are investigating -> ie. if it's a book, they will include quotes, if it is an argumentative essay it will include evidence from research articles, or may include anecdotal evidence.
    - You give a summary of how your body paragraphs prove the Main Argument. You give sum up where the essay has been.

    Further Tips
    > In my college experience usually citations of evidence / quotes were a big grading point -> use whatever citation method your teacher has told you to use (ie. APA? Chicago?) and be careful you follow that method exactly -> if you feel unfamiliar, chances are your school's library has a resource person who is willing to look over citations. This can be a great resource, and chances are this little detail is counting towards your grade.

    > If you get a terrible grade on a paper do talk to the teacher - teacher's like to see effort! (My sister teaches a composition course at the college level, so I know this) Go in not with the mind to argue your grade - but with the purpose of trying to figure out what you need to do to improve. You can even say, "Hey this course, and my learning is really important to me, would you be willing to let me re-write paper A for a chance to improve my grade" <- they may work with you! Teachers want to see you pass & improve and you'll know what you can do better next time.

    > Done is better than Good - in college initially my main problem was perfectionism - I'd procrastinate because I'd be overwhelmed with writing the perfect paper and then have a late paper, and get points off for lateness when if I'd turned in a ~non-perfect~ paper on time, probably would have gotten an A. Turn your work on in time, and don't set out to write perfection, just try to complete the assignment and then if you have time you can work on polishing and improvement. Done is better than Good.

    Spoiler! :
    take notes, focus a lot on grades and extra curricular, it's your last year before you start applying to uni if you decide you want to, so make sure it's good and you enjoy your last free(ish) moments. i'd also say make a list of things you want to do while you still can
