reddit keeps me (and my blogs) honest: i’m back!

like these houses of pitch perfect (and other fine art) fame.

It’s been about three months since the last time I’ve posted a blog. You can call it writer’s block or procrastination – either way, I’ve been struggling with how to portray the last few months honestly. Misrepresentation is something I worry a lot about when writing admissions blogs. This self-doubt probably started when I wrote a blog […]

an open letter to those returning from break

by Jackie C.

I spent spring break on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, and man, I’m tanned (a little sunburned, tbh), relaxed, and not quite ready to go back home. Let me tell you, it’s been a long time coming. My friend Hunt has brought up the idea of going to his house in Hilton Head since we […]

7 cute, insta-worthy things to do on spring break in baltimore: a masterlist

by Jackie C.

After one of the roughest patches of Hopkins schoolwork history that I can recall for a majority of my friends, it’s finally spring break, which means we all finally get to relax and take some time off of thinking about work for a couple of days. I don’t leave Baltimore until Tuesday (when I will […]

the cold never bothered me anyway: a microblog

by Jackie C.
ironically, we parked right next to the best ice cream place in town, the charmery

Someone must have made an ice princess really freaking mad this week. It has been snowing on and off all week. Not enough to get us a snow day, mind you, but just enough to get past my boots and get my socks wet. Basically, baltimore weather has been toying with Hopkins students’ collective emotions this […]

featuring jackie as the grinch: how i stole valentine’s day

by Jackie C.

“every blue jay at Hopkins liked v-day a lot, but jackie, who lived north of charles, did not! jackie hated v-day! the whole romance season! now please don’t ask why, nobody knows the reason.” it could be, perhaps, the weather and windchill. it could be her sinuses- after all, she was ill. but I think […]

my blogs will get more exciting after i can breathe through my nose

by Jackie C.

The season of the flu is upon us. And of course, in classic jackie fashion, I have gotten sick. I wish I could discuss how useful the health and wellness center is (I slept right through my appointment with them, sorry doctors!) or how just a couple nights of sleep really helps a person get […]

First thing’s first, happy holidays, and happy 2015! Last year, in order to properly document my life, i put together gifs of each month and posted them in the emmy-nominated blog post entitled “project 365.” unfortunately for me, gifs are hard to make without a handy dandy gif-maker (which you can find all over the internet, […]

equal and opposite reactions

by Jackie C.

It’s late in the year (both the school and the calendar year, I guess), and it’s getting colder, and the looming holiday season is reminding me how far from home (both my hometown of pacific grove, ca, and my actual home, south korea) I really am. After a short week of breaksgiving, during which I […]

the mental notes and me: a microblog

Cropic Share File

Everyone’s got milestones that mark the passing of time and make it very real how short college really is, and how important it is to embrace every moment. For some people, it’s senior games, watching the people they look up to play their last sports game, and for others, it’s a final conference. Some people […]

It’s now the beginning of november, which means that Halloweekend was, very recently, upon us. Now let me tell you, in high school, I was ALWAYS on point with my costumes.
