College is not easy, is it?

If this is your first time here, welcome and thanks for stopping by!

My name is Aurora and I created this blog because I’m a non-traditional college student, and while I was navigating college I had no help from anyone. I was an introvert and I had just moved from Asia and got out of the US Navy. Hopefully, this blog will help you or at least give you some direction on how to navigate college. Some of us don’t have parents to navigate life, so here I am sharing things would you which I hope you find valuable.

The articles I write are easy-to-read and are skimmable. I make sure it’s like this so that you’re able to read it. I know college can be hectic as we try to have fun, figure things out, and make As in classes, so this is what I figured I’d do
