Hey Y'all!

As some of you may already know, this past summer I began my first blog, Scribentia, which is Latin for "the writing things." However, because the title was in Latin, a language that's not even spoken, I felt constrained in my posts and used language that was monotonous, too formal, and too sophisticated. Consequently, I was inspired to create a new blog. (Yes, I know the visual format of this blog is the same as that of Scribentia, more changes will come.) Regardless, I created this blog to not only remove myself from my previous academic, guarded language, but to utilize this blog as an outlet for my original, creative writing. (Wait a second...wasn't that the original purpose of Scribentia?) Although that was the original purpose of Scribentia, because I inconsistently posted, and I didn't have time to produce any creative writing, my posts were long and boring, (not going to lie, I even posted two, not one, but TWO of my high school English essays on my blog just to save time.)

Because I had such a difficult time thinking of posts when school was in session, I came up with the solution to write about school. Now, before someone goes and argues that's worse than the topic of my previous blog, just listen. Although I will include a few posts regarding good study habits and skills, the focus of this blog will address issues of utmost importance in school, including:
Master Procrastinators (I should know, I'm definitely one)
Seating Charts (I mean really, what's the point? I don't usually sit in my assigned seat anyway.)
Early Bird or Night Owl Studying? (I've tried both and hated both.)

So, this blog has three main purposes:
 - publish my original creative writing (similar to the purpose of Scribentia)
 - but also address amusing issues only middle school to high school students can understand/relate to (such as the examples listed above)
- highlight the most interesting parts of my days at school (if there even are any)

Because I've expanded this blog to encompass more topics, I should be able to post a lot more consistently. Now, to the interesting part, the name: Schoolloquialisms
What does that even mean? Well, it's a combination of two words, obviously the first is school, (I mean, it's clearly spelled in the name: Schoolloquialisms.)
Although you may have guessed the second word is colloquialisms, do you know why? Colloquialisms are defined as "words and phrases that are not formal or literary, used in casual or familiar conversation." Detect the irony? I would never think to use colloquialisms to complete any academic assignments at school. However, the name Schoolloquialisms, grants me the capability not to write casually at school, but to write casually about school.

That's all I've got for today. I appreciate any comments you might have and look forward to getting this blog rolling!
