Rest

Prompt #14: What’s your schedule like?

If my friends read this, they’ll see how chill I really am in this season of being a working girl. In many ways, I’m thankful that I was given an 8-5 job, though it can be tiring at times. This lifestyle keeps everything in a peaceful routine. I don’t have to worry about sudden or unexpected changes.

My Daily Bag: Young Pro

Prompt #13: What’s in your purse?

However, it still didn’t change my childish heart from getting a little green-eyed when a classmate gets the new gadgets or when a family friend shows off their new toy straight from abroad.

College Bankruptcy

Prompt #9: Discuss a problem you have or have had in the past.

I’m thankful I can say that this is a problem I had in the past, now that I have been able to overcome it: the all too real college bankruptcy.

“Broke college student.”

How often do we joke about it, even when going bankrupt is no joking matter?
