Writing Prompts

Writing Prompt 1: Write about your first relationship in college.

PLEASE NOTE: I’m still friends with a lot of friends from college and I’ve grown up (maybe) since my 2nd year of college, so I’ve fabricated some events and catered them to sound more story-like than real to convey a fun read rather than to bash on anyone. I’m not even sharing this on any social media, so I doubt anyone will find it, but I’m providing this disclaimer just in case.

As Beyonce said in the bridge of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor”:

You know I’m not gon’ diss you on the internet,
cause my mama taught me better than that.

Things to Do During Your Final Term in College.

As graduation is quickly approaching, there’s no escaping that sense of urgency, the nostalgia – just all the feELz that you don’t want to catch and you’ve worked hard to ignore. “I’m so old” and “I can’t believe it’s almost over” and “I’M FINALLY GOING TO BE FREE” are the general statements I’m sure we’re all thinking about, and as much as it’ll be liberating, it’s also one of the prime times of your life that you’ll probably not get back. Ever. Ever ever.
