Tripping the Light Sophomoric

Sophomoric (sof-uh-mawr-ik, –mor-):

1. of or pertaining to a sophomore or sophomores.

2. suggestive of or resembling the traditional sophomore; intellectually pretentious, overconfident, conceited, etc., but immature.

Well, you’re sophomoric, Dictionary.com.

After a year of experiencing the ups and downs and diagonals of freshman year, here we are. Last year, I made the decision to drop the blogging to focus on suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous workloads, taking up arms against the sea of pressures, and by opposing… survive the year! Thank you. Hold the applause.

Shakespeare Seriously Noob

Sorry, Billy

Butchering of Hamlet aside, again – here we are! And here’s the deal – my new school year resolution: I am resuming chronicling the college experience for this Average Jill, peppering in current events, and subjects not necessarily related to higher education. If you’re a returning subscriber, things are going to be a little different around Stressing Out College. If you’re new, then welcome and Viva La Stressolution! I have been enlightened by a year of college education and being surrounded by already enlightened beings and holy intellectuals. One year and a dozen essays and exams later, I am one leap closer to becoming one of the light!

Just kidding. Long and the short of it – Stressed Out Student is back and raring to go for another school year. The real new school year resolution list:

1. Blog more

2. Blog more without sacrificing quality over quantity

3. Quit smoking

4. Quit drinking

5. Quit the may-ri-joo-ah-nuh

6. Make this relationship work. Because it wasn’t you. It was me. (But it was kind of you, too.)

7. Keep the sarcasm down

Already, I can tell I’ll only be able to keep one of these. So follow along, fellow interwebbers, as I trip around on my light sophomoric toes.

Cheers to the new-ish school year!
