Hi! I’m Grace, a 20-something-year-old from a small town in Illinois.

I love school (I was the kid that was always excited to go back to school after Summer Vacation)! You could definitely consider me a nerd.

I spend an inordinate amount of time talking about whatever books or tv shows I am obsessed with at the moment and telling stories about my nieces (Kenzi, age 10, and Quinn, age 8), who are the cutest and funniest tiny humans that have ever existed (yes, it is possible that I am biased). I also love playing games with my family (Cribbage and Euchre are my favorites). 

About Get Smart Soon!

I started Get Smart Soon when I was in my last year of college.

When I first became an online student in college, I had a lot of misconceived notions about how online courses workedOpens in a new tab.. I thought the tech part would be impossibly hard. It’s not! There are certain requirements, but it is not difficult to learn.

Instead, the hardest parts were time management, motivation, and self-discipline.

I learned everything I needed to succeed as a college student the hard way, but I want to help you get there faster! Here at Get Smart Soon, you will find tips and tricks to work smarter, not harder, as a college student.
