8 Things I Wish I knew Before Starting University
If you're about to start university, you're probably excited—but what's the best way to get ready? University is an exciting time in your life. You're on the brink of adulthood, making your own decisions, and starting to work toward your dreams! But you may be nervous about what lies ahead—who wouldn't be?
As a young girl, I both excelled and struggled at school. When I understood the lesson being taught, I mastered it quickly and easily. When I did not, it was like I had hit a roadblock that no one could break down. Leaving me swinging back and forth between feeling brilliant and also like a complete idiot all of the time. Sometimes, I would experience a whole day, or even week, of feeling quite clever before being flung back into feelings of complete inadequacy. Other times, I would shift back and forth many times in a single day. This was not helped by my love of being around other people and wanting desperately to communicate with them. There is not much time for socializing in the course of an American school day. At least, not when I was a child. These behavioral ‘issues’ or ‘distractions’ as my teachers saw them were treated with bad marks on my report cards and frequent reprimanding at home.
Why every high school graduate should take a gap year.
I am currently a “gap year student” they would call it on paper. Going back into high school, I was lost, confused, lonely, and probably the weirdest hormonal state I have ever been in, especially near the end of Junior year heading into being a senior. College applications and the pressure for a freaking sixteen-year-old is on, not to mention this was 2020 so Covid-19 had just hit us. Despite everything being super chaotic I had to make a choice for which colleges I wanted to go to. Listen, I wasn’t the best student of all time but also I cared just enough so I can have a great future as they love to tell me. Get into a good school, find what you want, graduate, get a job, and the list goes on and on.

Teaching the Other Side
Part 1: Last Year I teach middle school and junior high English, and I am fortunate enough to be able to create my own curriculum. I try to focus on what students will need in the future, and that includes a look at diverse perspectives.
I have been absolutely infatuated with mathematics since my junior year of highschool. I took that love of the subject and decided to pursue it in my college career. My ability and general enjoyment of the subject led me to tutor other students as they struggled with the maths that I had completed. This supporting educational role brought a few things to light: math is scary/hard, how will this be useful, and math is boring. These views broke my heart. Then the thought of "Why is math viewed this way?" crept its way into my number laden mind. The conclusion I have come to after teaching in a one on one enviroment for the past four years is that the issue is a branding or rather a presentational issue.
Thank you for everything
My hometown heroes are the teachers that raised me. The teachers that dragged me through the most difficult years of my life. The teachers that realised that underneath my arrogant unfeeling exterior was a traumatised, insecure, scared little boy. The teachers that gave me second, third, fourth and fifth chances. The teachers that were understanding of my ADHD, my depressive tendencies, of my generic emotional overwhelm. The ones that saw my frustration with life and didn’t shame me or punish me for any of it, but tried to help me figure out ways to succeed instead.
The Reason I Believed Again
Dear Ms. Massey, When I turned eighteen, I knew I wanted to go to college immediately, but there were challenges along the way.
