    Well this semester has already been a crazy one! I thought it would be a good idea to take an extra course this semester. I felt like I had a lot of extra time last semester, but now with 4 courses I definitely […]

    In undergrad, when a professor would announce a group project I always heard students complain. I definitely was one of those students. Coming to grad school I never thought I would be stuck doing group projects. […]

    I have been living in Arlington for almost 2 months, and I finally stayed in the area for a weekend. Friday was a laid back night at Applebee’s in Falls Church. My friends and I didn’t want to do anything too […]

    Hello all! It is my 4th week living in Arlington and I am finally beginning to adjust. I just spent most of my summer in North Carolina living with my parents and another part of my summer traveling. At first it was hard to adjust living some where new, and then it became very difficult because I got sick and I was alone!

    I was nervous for my classes thinking they were going to be extremely difficult. I thought the professors were going to be really strict, but it turned out to be the opposite. My professors are all great and there was nothing to be afraid of. I am excited for this semester because I find all my classes very interesting. In undergrad my major was psychology, and I did not have the opportunity to take a counseling course.

    Going into my 4th week of living in Arlington I can finally say I am extremely happy with where my life is going. Being sick for my first weeks here made the transition more difficult, but now I am appreciating everything around me. I have no stayed here for a weekend yet, because I have been traveling around. In the weekends to come I am excited to take the time to explore the area, and to meet new people.

    Stayed tuned to see how my life in Arlington begins to unfold!
