“Find a journal you LOVE and buy a bunch of them” 
I took a writing course from @hannahbrencher a couple years ago. She gave this priceless piece of advice, I haven’t forgotten it because I swear she was speaking directly to ME. 
I was the girl who would buy a brand new journal every other week convincing myself that “this is THE one”. Journal shopping became an unhealthy procrastination - while I was busy shopping, the words weren’t making it down onto paper. 
I realized the journals weren’t going to make me a better writer. TIME was going to make me a better writer, and journal shopping was a waste of time. 
Pick the dang journal and commit. Pick up the pen and do the work.

Hey there! My name is Maddy Albert. I’m a junior English major from Briarcliff Manor, New York. On campus I am a co-president of Colby Hillel, I sing with Mayflower Chill, act with Powder and Wig, edit for Outside Colby Political Magazine, volunteer with Colby Cares about Kids (CCAK) and work in the Farnham Writers’ Center. I am a big fan of reading, snacking, and making slow transitions from one place to another! I am so grateful for the many opportunities that Colby has given me so far, and I can’t wait to share some of my experiences with you this week! - Maddy ‘20

My class is sensory bin crazy!! They love having a new sensory bin every week. I change out the objects inside the bin every two week& the game in it every week. That gives them four different activities& two different materials to play with. This month was orange Pom poms, orange rice and little pumpkins (from the dollar spot @target). This bin was all from @dollartree, eyeballs, skeleton hands & spider rings. I luckily had the black/ white beans in my classroom! @applesandabcs you have changed the game with these activities. They absolutely love playing these during rotation time ❤️

The amount I know is minuscule, the time I’ve had is short. I won’t pretend to know it all, but wouldn’t it be a waste to not share at all? —
I’ve fallen under that trap of believing I need certain credentials, time, and experience to share opinions or advice. 
And I’m over it. I have good things to say, I’ve experienced trials that other individuals are dying to hear about. I have advice. And I believe you do TOO. 
Don’t wait for permission, share what you know. That’s how experts are made.

The axiom “write what you know” has long been debated in the writing community for many reasons, many of which having to do with a writer's responsibility. Read our new blog post on the topic up at the link in our bio! #writingadvice #writingtips

Many students will often say they only write one draft. "I just do one draft and proofread it." But what many don't understand is that "the first draft is just you telling yourself the story." The first draft is like a thorough notes page for your FINAL draft.

Happy Monday, Lakers! Did you know that not only do we consult with writers with specific projects, we help them to develop their unique writing processes as well? Just as Grand Valley strives for excellence, the writing center values time and space for writers to practice the writing process; we believe this perspective is essential to a writer’s confidence and personal success in writing. Writing consultants are trained with the skills and knowledge necessary to approach writing from a process-oriented mindset so as to pass that perspective on to other writers and fellow thinkers. Through this value of process, the center hopes to be an instrumental resource for our clients to become more intentional writers.

I thought cardio would be good for my heart, but it just seems to make it work even harder. If you’re working hard on a presentation or speech, make an appointment at the Writing Center! We have a presentation room where you can practice with one of our consultants, who can help you with your visual aids, content and delivery. Plus, the extra preparation will help prevent your heart from beating out of your chest. #mondaypunday #strengthenyourcore #presentation #practicemakesperfect #tamu #writingcenter #gigem #whoop #tamu22

It's taken some time, but I finally started my journey as a seller on Teachers Pay Teachers!!!! Yaaay!!! So, teacher friends and parents of young children please enjoy my first product on TPT!!!!

You'll be very excited to know that this product is a FREEBIE, so please enjoy!!! I do ask that you leave a rave review if you like the cards to help me launch my TPT store.  Please and Thank You!!! 😘😘😘 I took pictures of examples of how I would use the Color Word Cards in my classroom.  So excited to finally share this!!! 😁😃😉 My store name is "The Kid Smart Shop". You can look me up using that name on Teachers Pay Teachers.  Product #2 is already in the works.

Happy Friyay! As we approach fall, the heat is slowly showing mercy and we’re finally getting some nice weather! Beware of colorful falling leaves and a cool breeze, as they pose a risk of giving you a case of the fall festivities.

You can make an appointment at our Evans location, or visit our West Campus Library location where we have walk-ins available Sunday - Friday, 5:30pm - 9pm. #fallfestivities #bewareofleaves #halloweeniscoming #tamu #writingcenter #gigem #aggies #whoop #tamu22

A hero becomes a hero because they walk the journey. The journey usually SUCKS. People get crushed in trash compactors, wands get snapped, and some die fighting for the cause. 
Harry, Ray, Frodo, Wonder Woman, Neo. They ALL walked the journey. No one can skip the yellow brick road. That’s the whole point, the journey. 
So where are you on your road? Have you even started? I’m afraid you haven’t even left The Shire, are you still in the closet under the stairs? Can you imagine if Christ would have said, “Nah, you know what Dad, I’m feeling really comfortable at this table eating bread and drinking wine with the bros, try again tomorrow!” Friend, you don’t have time to waste waiting. Get on your broom stick, just keep swimming, believe.

This is a quick peek at one of the many fantastic presentations from this morning. 
Adam Pellegrini from Columbia University discussed how writing centers and individuals can engage in our community by creating spaces of hope. He said education is often a space of hope because it is done in the hope that an individual can better themselves and the community around them.

Another idea that struck me during his presentation related to his statements that joining a social good field is not enough to create social change. As a Boise State Student planning on going into healthcare, this concept resonated with me. Just because the profession I am interested in traditionally works with the medically underserved population, doesn't mean I'm creating any social change to address why so many people can't get health care in the USA. I encourage anyone reading this post to consider how they can not only do social good, but also be a force for social change.
