A Week Of….

This is a post for the “Week Of…” challenge. This week it is branches!


Zero to Hero encouraged me to “throw your hat into the ring” of another Blogging Event. So, this is my response to Day 22 of Zero to Hero.


How Youtube has changed my life.

If you know me at all you know that I spend A LOT of time on Youtube, soaking in content.

If you aren’t “a youtuber” you’re probably thinking I listen to music and watch tutorials on pretty much anything….. Well actually, you would be wrong. I am subscribed to 67 different channels, with content ranging from the news based Phillip DeFranco Show, to watching the adventures of young graphic designer Karen Kavett, to watching the daily life’s of couple Alli and Charles Trippy, or Datev Gallegher, or the Butler Family.

I watch 4 daily vloggers who vlog everything and anything everyday of the year, birthdays, holidays and weekends included. This may seem unreasonable but it’s nice to watch something that you can relate to and feel for the people that are living their everyday lives just like you. Even if you don’t experience the same troubles as them, it’s nice to know that you are not the only one struggling.

Since subscribing to the channel CTFxC, I have added labels to myself. I have become a CTFxCer (Charles Trippy Fan/Friend/Family Core); A Nerdfighter; a part of the DLV; and a part of the Nation.

And finally, in the words of John Green (a young adult author and famous youtuber) “You can’t understand it from the outside you have to get an account you have to be apart of it.”

I posted this in response to Zero to Hero‘s Day 19 Prompt. 

My Reputation….

So I don’t know… well I do…

I think I have different reputations depending on who you talk to…

My reputation from when I was in high school and the people that knew me then?

  • My peers: An over achiever, over involved, student who goes for what she wants and stands up for herself.
  • My teachers: A good student that does her work but has to work hard for it to be good.
  • Administrators (people who knew my name but didn’t KNOW me): I’m a good kid; I stand up for and am not afraid to speak up for what I want and what is best for myself and fellow students.


I truly think this is a harder question; I am constantly changing in the eyes of those that interact with me and are around me. I think my professors and my peers (at least in my classes) don’t really have a opinion. I’m only with them 10 weeks then we are separated; meeting new people learning new things, yes I have people who I have know for the three years that I have been here but even then I feel like I don’t let the people who are in my classes know the real me; they know the Kaylin that is dedicated to her school, overly involved and passionate about her studies; but the true me is reserved for friends, family, and those who are closer to me (personally and physically).

With them I feel as if my reputation is an ever changing web. I don’t know what they think of me… They would have to answer that question. They would have to tell you themselves. I am not one to speak  for others.

But I can tell you what I hope for; I hope that I am someone they can come to in a time of need; someone that is reliable and dependable; someone who is helpful; someone who is willing to learn; someone who is strong; someone who is funny; and someone who is great at her job (my studies for now).

This was in response to the daily prompt!

AND was inspired by my quest to finish Zero To Hero (even if it takes me more then 30 days).

Positive Attitudes


This is hard (trust me know!) but I think it’s important!! This picture was taken before a 6 hour training for my RA position (see my about me) and I was NOT looking forward to it! It was a Friday afternoon/night and I didn’t want to spend 6 hours listening to people lecture at me! It was the end of the first week of classes after all!! ANYWAYS! moral of the story is the time FLEW by! I felt like I was having the time of my life with AMAZING people and learning SO much!! Afterwards I was bursting with energy and dancing down the hall!! It just goes to show that even though your not excited doesn’t mean that you wont have an AMAZING time!

This definitely showed me that going into student affairs might JUST be a good idea… 😀
