Kodi Wilson

Writer

Location icon United States of America

I will graduate in May with a Master of Art in Teaching degree at the University of Arkansas, where I work each and every day to live life and be happy without a sense of greed while I manage schoolwork and responsibilities on a day to day basis. I thoroughly enjoy writing when I am not teaching little minds, and I strive to continue this passion each and every day.

I have written for CitiScapes magazine, The Odyssey newspaper at the University of Arkansas, and the Northwest Arkansas Travel Guide. In my spare time, I enjoy maintaining and keeping up with my personal blog where I write for entertainment. This can be found at kodiwilson.com.

I am a coffee addict, an avid online shopper, a casual runner, a student teacher, and a writer. I laugh too loud, I wake up too early, and I eat too much peanut butter. If you can’t find me watching reruns of Friends on the couch, then I am probably outdoors.

Sometimes, I Get the Urge to Write

Sometimes, I get the urge to write. I get the urge to declutter my racing mind and put it all into words. I get the urge to ramble onto a blank slate in hope that it will clear my mind even a sligh...

Those Along The Way

Time really doesn't slow down, does it? One day it's May 2012, and I'm walking across the stage in my high school graduation. Then what feels like two days later, it's May 2015, and I am planning my college graduation in one more year and typing away at my computer reflecting on my past.

Stop Wearing Your Wishbone

Independent: (adj.) not depending on another for livelihood or subsistence. This word really hits home to me. I feel like, as a girl in her 20's, belonging to someone or something and feeling a sense of security within another being is one of our biggest desires.

Old Unrelated Family

This weekend was offbeat, yet it made me feel so at ease. I went home to the town I never wanted to see again, the friends I cried goodbye to, the classmates I fought with and clashed with and tuss...

Terrible Triad

Coming from a personal standpoint, this past week was a tough one. I was flooded with exams, online quizzes, group projects, and work on top of it all. I felt as if there were not enough hours in a day to take on every responsibility that was asked of me, let alone even finding the time to breathe.

How to Be Your Best Self in 2015

Sometimes getting caught up in the madness of stress with school, work, friends, or even the holidays, can cause us to feel sluggish. The overwhelming chaos that gets caught up in the midst of our lives may cause a change of attitude - and not always in a good way.

The Bad is Always More Visible Than the Good

I looked out of my balcony window this morning to see snowfall for the third time this past week. As if going to the gym wasn't difficult enough, the brisk weather definitely doesn't help matters any. So I sat down for some breakfast and coffee until I mentally motivated myself to get up and walk down ....

You Are Not Weak Just Because Your Heart Feels Heavy

Events this past week have been heavy on my heart for a few days, and of course I turn towards this to have a sense of relief. Relief in letting things out and letting things fall out of my mind in...

I Got That Sunshine in My Pocket

It's 7:45 a.m. and I just had a one-woman dance party to Justin Timberlake's song "Can't Stop the Feeling". If you haven't watched the video, do it. Do it now. I promise that it will instantly make you happy. :) Grad school is already taking a toll on me and I haven't even began my...
