8 Tips for Being a Successful College Student this Semester

We all want to be successful in the new year. The new year brings new goals, fresh starts, and for students, a new semester. As a second-year college student (who will graduate in 2018, crazy!!) I’ve learned a thing or two about being a successful student. In today’s post, I’m sharing 8 of my best tips for being a successful college student in this new semester.

Who is God Calling You to Be?

Who is God calling you to be? I’m going to honest, friend (from now through the very end of this post, so sit tight and get ready to get real), for the last six months or so, I had no idea. I didn’t really know how to trust God and His call for me. It’s not that I don’t know what I should be doing or where I should be going, or what direction I should’ve been taking my life. I didn’t know because I simply wasn’t listening. I wasn’t listening to God. And if I’m not listening to God, because I’m listening too much to myself or to the loud, loud world around me, how can I possibly hear the call of the Lord?

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

Hello hello and happy new year!! My winter break has been much busier than expected, in a good way, and I simply haven’t had as much time to sit down and write as I was anticipating. I planned to do a “2017 Goals Wrap-Up” and start a list of goals for 2018, and this post…

I just celebrated by 20th birthday yesterday and today I’m celebrating 20 things from my 20th year. I wrote this post last year just before my 19th birthday, and I meant to get this one up earlier, but life happens. I love reading birthday posts with people’s celebrations, accomplishments, and lessons from the past year! So today, I’m reflecting on life between 19 and 20, and so much happened. My mom was so surprised at me not being a teenager anymore, but I truly feel like I grew up this year.

I took a lot of bad with the good, and lows with the highs this year, but moving forward, I’m celebrating 20 amazing things that happened this year.
