What to Ask Your Potential College Roommate!

The process of finding a college roommate these days is worse than finding a boyfriend. Class Facebook pages are the way of connecting with future students from across the country. Take it from my experience, you rewrite that five sentence paragraph multiple times before posting it, to be perceived as fun yet studious to attract the most responses. Beyond just the quick bio, your Facebook that you haven’t touched since seventh grade now has to have pictures of your life so everyone wants to live with you. It’s all a game.


My First Month on Accutane / How I Control My Acne

Accutane, Isotretinoin, whatever you want to call it. Is a drug that “cures” acne. The little pills are the strongest treatment to kill acne and keep it from coming back.

I officially started Accutane 36 days ago, when after two years of less severe other Acne treatment options had failed and my skin was getting worse by the day. My dermatologist prescribed 60mg to be taken over the course of 6-8 months, to try to cure me of this “disease.”


The Truth About College Parties

As a girl who didn’t go to parties much, or at all frankly, in high school, my first semester of freshman year was a huge wakeup call. I learned quickly that I was not prepared for the college going out scene, and was scared into staying in my dorm room on the weekends.

From what I know now, I wish I could go back and change some things. But my past has shaped me into who I am today, and I guess I’m your big sister today here to share my words of wisdom of surviving college parties.
