Finding Life 365 Days After College Graduation

Since yesterday, it has been 365 days since graduation and what has happened since I walked across the stage, I could have never imagined. First off, graduating from college is a huge accomplishment that I knew I could achieve but never really understood the height of it all. When you really think about it, going to any university and committing yourself to adsorb knowledge to hopefully make a living for yourself is half the battle.

Did Draya Deserve Getting Donkey of the Day for Not Signing Her Son’s Homework?

Draya opened up another reason for social media to drag her not too long after her Thanksgiving dinner troll. She posted on her Instagram that she was annoyed that her son Kniko’s homework was to memorize a four-minute speech, practice it for five times a day, and then required her signature.  Irritated with hearing the speech, it seems that Draya refused to sign the assignment which caused her son to not get the points he needed.
