My 10 Somethings for August

Meeting retired car thieves, exasperating people with glitter, and long road trips.

Just another month in the life of Gabby.

Welcome to My Somethings for August!

Something Sad

My sister and her roomie, Tori, moved away this month. 😦

First off, it’s just plain sad they won’t be around. Second, watching them leave for Cedarville gave me homesickness for the college I dropped out of. Don’t you hate it when you make the right choice but are still pained by it?  

All depressing feelings aside, they now have the ability to commute to Cedarville, and I’m allowed to visit them on the weekends. I think I’ll survive. 😉 Read more

My 11 Somethings for February

Hey friends!

Sorry ‘bout not showing up last week. I got a job, and, well…more on that later.
Anyhow, here’s how last month panned out.

Something Fun (and Slightly Painful)

Do you like sleeping on concrete? Cause I do.

Sort of. For a good reason.

Apparently, I’m a missable person because last month my sister invited me to spend the night at Cedarville with her and her roomie (who’s also my crazy friend).

It didn’t occur to me that college students don’t have room to store extra bedding for guests, so I ended up sleeping on about an inch of blankets and however many feet of concrete sits under the dorms. Read more

My 15 Somethings for Januaryish (Part 2)

Hey friends!

Here is the second part of my Somethings, as promised.

Something Sad

I’m all alone.

My sister headed back to college last month. Cedarville isn’t too far away, but it still feels weird. We’ve been together my entire life, and now she’s gone. *sniffs* Gone!

Ok, maybe I’m being dramatic, but still. Darn growing up.

Something Deep

I had an article published by KP that hit pretty close to home. Many writers struggle with comparison and placing their worth in how well they write (including yours truly). In the article I wrote, I addressed these harmful patterns. I can honestly say this is one of my favorite articles that I’ve written.

My 15 Somethings for Januaryish (Part 1)

Much has transpired since my last Somethings. So much, in fact, that I had to split this Something into two parts.

Actually, I was simply too lazy to edit the entire post before sending it to my editor/error checker. But it is a really long piece, so it worked out.

Buckle up, ladies and gentlemen. The last two months were a bumpy ride. Read more

Why I Quit College (and What I’m Doing During my Gap Year)

As you guys know, in August I became a Visual Communications Design student at Cedarville. As a lot of you don’t know, I left last month with no intention of completing the rest of the year.

My choice to leave Cedarville has nothing to do with the school itself. Cedarville is fantastic. I’ve learned things and met people I will never forget.

My decision has everything to do with writing. If college has taught me anything, it’s that I am a writer, not a graphic designer. In my opinion, it is pointless to spend thousands of dollars pursuing a major I don’t want to use after college. Read more
