Now, I’m not saying I’m the master guru of surviving through college. But, ladies and gents, I do want to help. Especially now that the national deadline for college acceptance is beginning to creep up, I really do want to answer questions if people have them. Want to know how you should go about choosing a school? Not sure if you should bring your collector ceramic kitten plates to your dorm? (Answer: Do not.) I’ve got answers, or I can at least point you in the right direction if I don’t.
A few things about me, if you’re starting to pluck up the courage to ask me something:
- I’m female
- I live on-campus with a roommate
- I’m a first-generation, minority student from your average public high school
- I go to a private university with a religious affiliation
- I would consider myself very shy (and yet I’ve survived the ordeal!)
- I don’t believe there is a such thing as a stupid question
- I do check my blog pretty religiously. You’ll get an answer if you ask one. Promise.
I’ll also answer questions from parents or whoever else is involved in a college process.
It’ll keep things simple if you leave any questions you have here in the comments below, though I won’t neglect a question if you leave it elsewhere on my blog. I tend to be thorough in my answers (because doesn’t it just irk you when people give you skimpy answers?! It bothers me.) so I’ll more than likely direct to you a separate blog post with your answer once I have it ready.
You can also shoot me an email! My address is firstname.lastname@example.org. (Yes, it’s long. Yes, I used “rocketmail” because it sounded cool. No, I do not regret a thing.) I’ll publish your question and my response in a blog post unless you ask me not to.
Really, though, ask me anything that may be on your mind about college. Like I said, even if I don’t have an answer for you, I’ll either find it for you myself or at least point you to someone or someplace that does. (I’m nice like that.) The bottom line: I won’t leave a legitimate question unanswered.
