  • Tuesday

    I was going to do micro blogs after school or whatever but ran into trouble on my phone, but then I realized, I still have a few minutes before my night class and I’m in the library waiting for my second wind and wishing I had coffee, and I might as well write a thing. […]

  • Feels: College wk 1

    First week of school was sort of a whir. Hard but good….looking at essays as intensely as we have has sometimes been really hard to handle emotionally, and in a way I wasn’t — am not — prepared for. I love doing school and being in that environment and I want to be actively involved […]

  • Week One of Actual College in Pictures

  • Lean On Me

    So I had an epiphany over the weekend while coming home after being surrounded by people like me at a conference over the weekend.   We were singing Lean On Me in the car, and I realized….while pushing the words out of my mouth, that um, it’s totally okay to not be only absorbing everything […]

  • Kiery Actually Does College

    I started taking college prep courses in January, which I’ve written about most of the few times that I’ve actually gotten around to writing this year. The week before last week I took the college placement test in english and got a near perfect score (98 & 99, out of 99) and placed into english […]

  • My Life On Paper

    The first quarter of sort of college is almost over, and I feel like I’ve fallen into a rut of sleep – school – sleep and like I’m not getting anything much done (besides school, which totally counts). So last night I wrote down some of my priorities, to help focus and get out of […]

  • The Sims4 Series

    I’ve decided that it would be really fun to do a series of videos or maybe even livestreams (depending on how well my laptop can hold up to it) of the Sims4. It’s been done before, but I’m going to put a new twist on it. We’ll start by building up Newcrest (the blank Sims4 […]

  • On Math & Programming

    I’ve been told on multiple occasions by other programmers that “you don’t need math to program”. This is often said by people who actually learned math – or at the very least more math than I did. While I understand what they’re thinking (“the computer does the math for you”), they have a skillset that […]

  • An Open Letter to Hillary from Quivering Daughters

    Dear Hillary, I don’t even know where to begin. You’ve grown and lived and thrived and your life journey is a beautiful work of art, it almost feels wrong to bring up Quivering Daughters even just to say thank you. But I’m not speaking just for me, when I say, sincerely, thank you for writing […]
