I Know You Don’t Get a Chance to Take a Break This Often…

by Carly July 8, 2013

Well, I guess it’s no secret that I never got a science internship this summer. Okay, I applied to, what, two? But I must admit, I think deep down inside, I was hoping I wouldn’t be accepted into one all along. I didn’t want to live in St. Louis all summer. I didn’t want an […]

Summer Comes…

by Carly June 21, 2013

Considering the fact that I’ve spent so much time this summer stressing about the future, I find it odd that suddenly my worries have evaporated, leaving behind nothing but this odd mix of new feelings, ones like peacefulness and acceptance and hope and excitement, the same ones I used to have when I thought about […]

You’d Think I Would Know All the Answers

by Carly June 14, 2013

As of tomorrow, I will have been on summer break for exactly one month. Which is kind of terrifying, considering the fact that I’ve really done nothing but think. And worry. And repeat. And repeat, and repeat. And as I was engaging in this fun little pastime of mine the other day during one of […]

You’re Turning Into Something You Are Not.

by Carly June 3, 2013

I remember my very first day at Fontbonne. Well, okay, I remember the day I moved into the Joe. I remember the night before I moved in pretty clearly, too, along with the two days or so leading up to it. I remember being in high school and being so ready to move on. Gosh, […]

For a Minute I Was Lost.

by Carly May 30, 2013

(I think this may be my third time attempting to pull together my thoughts over the past several days since getting out of school…) For those of you who don’t know, I am not an only child. Yes, I am the middle of the three of us: my older brother, who introduced me to real […]

I Fell in Love Again.

by Carly April 30, 2013

The last blog post of the semester. Before you read on, I would highly, highly recommend you listen to this song, which the title of my post is derived from. For one, because it’s so beautiful, I think, and two, because things will make more sense if you do. I’ve been listening to it a […]

All You Want Will Work Out Fine.

by Carly April 24, 2013

I’m done. I have a calc test in the morning, but I can’t bring myself to study for it anymore. Yes, at about the spring break mark I start losing motivation pretty fast. The weather turns! I start running again! Who in their right mind would want to be working on applications of derivatives at […]

Do What You Don’t Do.

by Carly April 9, 2013

Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Maybe I’ll even throw in a few deep, thought-provoking quotes for good measure along the way to break things up. Plus, I will add links to external content wherever I see fit. Now that you can’t say I didn’t warn you, let’s begin. Read on at […]

All I Want Comes in Colors

by Carly March 26, 2013

Aaah, the old Comfort Zone. I love it for obvious reasons (it’s comfortable), but I also have come to absolutely despise it over the past few weeks as I spent a ton of time reflecting on my life during the Lenten season. As much as I hate to admit it, my Comfort Zone has me […]

I Wish You Could See the Thoughts in My Mind.

by Carly March 18, 2013

I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the fact that we’re, what?, a week past the halfway mark of the semester? The sheer amount of stuff I’ve learned in the past eight weeks is kind of really mind-blowing. I’ve learned, for example, what a derivative is. I’ve learned how to take the derivative of […]
