    I absolutely cannot stand the way in

    which textbooks perceive serious topics such as mental illness, I'm currently writing a paper on a mental illness which is actually quite serious and my doctor had thought I potentially had when I was going through some intense issues in life. This textbook describes it so...

    Yesteray, we had our thesis defense proposal

    and I just can't believe that of all the groups who presented we got the highest grade from the panels. I'm really blessed with my thesis groupmates. All sleepless nights and other hardships are worth it. Thank you Lord! <3

    I am thinking about transferring schools (for

    financial reasons and to also be back in my home state) but I also don't want to leave the people that I've met here behind either. I know that in a few years their existence in my life will dwindle to the minimum if any interaction at all. I think I just want to hold on to them...

    Almost everyone goes to college

    because it's necessary for them to get a good job. I go for the same reason but at the same time I go for myself because I genuinely love learning. I love doing anything that's mind stimulating and going to school fulfills that need for me.

    Is it worth it? I keep hearing from friends

    and random individuals how college isn't worth it anymore. They say you don't learn enough, and the degree is just a piece of paper. Most are left with incredible debt, too. I'm already about $10k in debt, with more to come in the next few years. I'm worried this debt is really...

    Almost a month in college

    and it already feels like I been there for 3 months. So far is going great and hopefully it stays that way. Sometimes there's a lot of homework but since I'm part time I get many days to do it. The college life is awesome depending on what teachers you get.
