Myth? By Alex Hill

Some say it’s myth.

Those are fools.

They don’t want things to change.

Always want things to stay the same.

Studies have been done, but people look past.

They would rather say it is wrong

Then face the facts.

We work just as hard,

but nothing has changed.

One day maybe if we work hard enough

that eighty percent will one day

be one hundred percent.

19 Things I’ve Learned In the Past Year

  1. People are going to hurt you. But you can get through it.
  2. Some people are fake. It’s a part of life.
  3. Don’t waste your time on boys. Or girls, whatever your preference is.
  4. Don’t let anyone tear you down.
  5. If you look bad when you see your ex, own it. Act like you are in your favorite outfit. It might not have any effect on them, but it will make you feel good.
  6. It’s okay to take a day off for mental health.
  7. Don’t be afraid to talk to your professors/teachers. I needed to do this a few times in the last month and it was so helpful.
  8. Don’t ever talk to your exes or anyone you used to talk to. If it didn’t work out the first time, it won’t again. There’s a reason things ended.
  9. Find someone who will always be there for you.
  10. Don’t be afraid to let people go that are bad for you.
  11. You don’t have to be friends with your college roommate.
  12. College is just like high school, just older and more difficult.
  13. College boys are not that great.
  14. Fire drills are actually the worst.
  15. Don’t be afraid to stay home for college.
  16. Do what is best for you.
  17. Try to be nice, but don’t be a pushover.
  18. College Athlete Boys are some of the worst guys I have ever met.
  19. Mental health is so important. Never ever say it isn’t because it is.

Until Next Time,

Single on Valentine’s Day?

Single on Valentine’s Day? Same. I know it’s difficult.  I’m  not excited about seeing all the sappy posts of couples and the presents and all that. I want to stay in my dorm all day and eat chocolate, but I can’t do that. I have class sadly. But even though I’m not excited, I’m okay with being single. Here’s why.

  1. I don’t have to be single. Almost two years ago, I dumped my ex because he didn’t treat me right. If I hadn’t done that I would probably still be with him and I would be miserable.
  2. It’s not the end of the world. Yeah, being single sucks but you can focus on yourself and your friends. So it’s not the end of the world.
  3. Valentine’s Day is overrated. Like seriously, one day to appreciate your significant other? That should be every day.


This was just a fun thing to do. But seriously, don’t get down about tomorrow!

2017 Wrap Up

Hey guys! So I wanted to do a little something that isn’t completely book related. I wanted to kind of talk about 2017 as a whole. The good parts and the bad parts through the year. Some is pretty emotional and a little personal, but guys I’m coming up on two years with this blog. So I’m gonna go month by month talking about accomplishments and other big things that happened.


In Janaury not much happened actually. I was having a lot of mental health issues, but that was pretty much the extent of it. I also made a new best friend!! She was originally going to be my roommate but she ended up going to a different college.


Same thing honestly. I was having a lot of panic attacks and let me tell you it was not fun.


March was a big month actually. First of all, I got out of a very toxic friendship and even though I was really sad, I ended up being a lot happpier. I also celebrated the one year anniversary of my dad’s death which was extremely difficult and part of the reason my mental health was so bad in January and February. I got a new phone! I started seeing a new therapist which made me happy and helped me a lot. I started talking to a new guy who was really sweet, but turned out to be a bad guy. I went to Florida and visited my sister and brother in law over my spring break. I spent a majority of the time in Jacksonville, but on our last day we went to Universal Studious!


In April I turned 18! Not only that, but remember that guy I mentioned before? Yeah, well that’s when I really found out his true colors and my heart broke.


May was an even bigger month! I graduated high school! My sister and brother in law were home and we got to celebrate my sister’s and my aunt’s birthday! I also had my graduation party which ended up being a lot of fun!





In June I went to my college orientation! I also did a lot of dog sitting and cat sitting. I went to Shakespeare in the Park which is a family tradition. I also got to go to the Muny with my mom and see The Little Mermaid.



In July I started my booktube channel! (You guys should totally subsribe. mybookishworld) I also did even more cat sitting and dog sitting! I went to go see A Chrous Line at the Muny which is one of my favorite musicals. I also started talking to a guy and got my heart broken again.



I moved into college! And I started classes! I made new friends (some have already left my life, but some are here to stay) I went to my first college football game!



I got to go home for labor day weekend and saw my sister and brother in law! I also went to a wedding of one of my sister’s very close friends. I came home 3 times that month. I came home the second time just because I was very tired and overwhelmed with life. The next weekend I came home just because my aunt and uncle were going to be in town.


Those toxic friends started to leave my life once more. I met a really cute boy and eventually started dating him. I made friends with this boy’s friends and I was very happy about that. I went home the last weekend of october and got to go back to my church and participate in trunk or treat! It was also the first snow (a very light snow).


I started dating that boy in November and spent a lot of my time I wasn’t in classes and doing homework with him and his friends. I went home and celebrated what would’ve been my dad’s 47th birthday with family. Later that week when I was back at school, my boyfriend dumped me over Snapchat. While I had so many great people in my life, I was still incredibly sad. Which led to my mental health getting increasingly worse. I got to go home for Thanksgiving break and spend a lot of time with them and my dogs. I went back to school and presented a project I had been working on for weeks and did very well on it.


December was probably one of the worst months for me honestly. Finals was during the beginning of the month which caused me a lot of stress and anxiety. I was having panic attacks almost daily. I was also depressed because the holidays are hard without my dad which made me not want to get out of bed or do anything really.  When I went home, I got to see one of my best friends who was back from basic training! Then I got an infected lip which also made it hard for me to have any motivation to do anything. I had my very first ER experience to get my lip drained. I gout put on some antibiotics. On my last day of antibiotics, I got strep. That was not fun because my sister and brother in law got home. I went to go see Pitch Perfect 3 with my mom, sister, and aunt though. I had a great Christmas with my family. I’m finally starting to get motivated to read, write, and all of the other things I love so much.

So that’s my wrap up of this year! I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings me and what happens with this blog!

Until Next Time,
