New Year, New Me… Sort Of

Imagine this, a new year and new classes. I was excited to start the new year and had a brand new attitude that matched my lunchbox. You know, the one that was black and had “please don’t Kale my vibe” typed across the front. Wide eyed and cheery I set course for the first day and was honestly taken aback. My classes needed to be dropped, there were unorganized syllabi abundant and my teacher completely jumped into our first lecture without so much as a hello. (These are all exaggerations, I promise!)

Needless to say, the first day was rough. And so was the next week. And even the week after that. I say all this to say school is frustrating, challenging, and… weirdly enough rewarding! Freshman do not be alarmed. It isn’t all about challenging courses and running back and forth across campus. You make friends, get a job, enjoy your classes and get freedom! Sweet freedom!

College is your chance to get involved, meet new people and evolve! It doesn’t happen overnight, doesn’t even happen after a month but with effort and dedication you really do see a change! If you’re having second thoughts about finishing the semester, getting your degree or even starting, this is your sign. Give it a shot! You can do this, and I believe in you!

It’s a new year and even a new semester! Give it a shot!

Kayla Savoy

Hey there! I promise finding this author’s note and stumbling across my blog page is no accident. My goal at the end of the day is to hopefully get you laughing, encouraged, or ready to make a change in your life. Now back to basics. My name is Kayla Savoy and this is my second year here at Montgomery College. Although I transfered from a different Community college halfway through my first year, I decided to make the switch and study Interior Design here on the Rockville campus! My goal after graduating is to transfer to Marymount University where I will continue my path to becoming an Interior Designer!

In my spare time you might catch me walking along campus helping other students as part of my job as a Peer Navigator or hiding out in Macklin Tower playing the Sims 4! Although Interior Design is my passion for my ocupation, I have found comfort in designing stickers and writing on my own personal blog ‘Accidentally Fluffy.’

Hobbies aside, I know what it’s like to be a college student and see each phase and go through every struggle. I understand the late nights, the “I haven’t eaten in four days”, I even understand the procrastination and overwhelming desire to give up when classes get hard. I hope you view this blog as a safe haven and a place where you can get a quick laugh and not feel judged. I hope you feel empowered enough at the end of each post to search for the opportunities offered here at MC as well!
