  • Personal Narrative: The Use Of Technology To Date

    I had recently come upon a quote from an anonymous person that read, “I am a hopeless romantic, living in a hook up world”. These words sum up my thoughts on dating in today’s society to a T. The use of technology to date or in other words, “to hook up” has left me feeling very unfulfilled. The disapproval on my Grandmother’s face when I explain to her that a guy I think is cute has messaged me on Twitter or Tinder to “hang out” is a good representation of how I feel as well. When she tells me about her own personal experience with dating, I feel as if she is speaking a foreign language.

My Grandmother’s standards were stuck in my head and maybe for good reason. Both men and…

  • My Strengths

    I’ll have to admit, at first I thought taking a quiz to find out my strengths seemed kind of bogus. I wasn’t all for it; it honestly seemed like a waste of time. Once we got to class and started analyzing our strengths, I began to realize that maybe this quiz wasn’t such a joke. Most of us have spent our entire lives with the mindset that we need to build up our weaknesses. As we found out, this might not be entirely true. It turns out that it is actually more productive to capitalize on our…
