P.R.E.T.T.Y. Pioneer Newsletter

Salutations, Readers! I’m Chelsea J welcoming you to the May Issue of the P.R.E.T.T.Y. Pioneer Newsletter! May Topic: Genre of Genius  Everyone in some shape or form wants to be a success.

What Graduating Means To Me

What Graduating Means To Me This year I am graduating from college. I repeat, I AM GRADUATING FROM COLLEGE. It literally feels as though I just began this four year journey, and now it is coming to a close. Throughout these four years there have been many ups and a few downs. Stressful nights of finishing papers due to procrastination and studying hard for midterms and final exams. I've met so many great people and have had positive influences in my life from all over. I don't regret any of the decisions I made over the course of this journey, however, if I could suggest some things for future … [Read More...]
