5 Things I Wish I Had Learned In High School (That I Have Only Recently Learned That I Didn’t Learn): Recently I’ve learned that there may have been a few things that my teachers could have helped me out on a little bit more. From being professional, to health, to keeping friends, all of these things could [...]
Earlier this year, I applied to take part in an alternative spring break trip through OSU’s Buck-I-Serv program. After a spring break spent meeting awesome Buckeyes and basking in a little bit of sunshine I would encourage every student to get involved with this program.
As an incoming freshman looking at prospective schools at which to spend my next four years, I never really took the opportunity to consider the cities surrounding these institutions of higher learning. Educational programs, cost, and the campus always seemed to play a bigger part of the decision.
Since my return to Ohio State this fall as a sophomore (it’s so wonderful not to be a freshman anymore so I just had to throw that one out there) I’ve been incredibly busy. Everything has begun again just where I left it last spring.
While I haven’t been on campus for the past few weeks, I’ve still stayed in contact with many of my friends from Ohio State. Many of us are at our own individual homes, homes that have been separate unexplored worlds. However, last weekend, I had a few friends visit my part of the world.
I’ve been home for the summer for a little over a week now, and I have just realized that I never took the chance to blog about my last few days of freshman year. I think this is my way of pretending that it’s not truly over.
Off the Lake performed its opening of The Mystery of Edwin Drood this weekend to two great audiences. The weekend was fantastic, but before it could happen we went through what is known by theatre folk as “hell week.”
A little while ago I blogged about a new group I joined at Ohio State, Off the Lake Productions, or OTL. These amazing people have made spring quarter my best quarter at Ohio State yet, so I thought I’d do a quick update.
Last Saturday I had a unique life affirming moment, one of those days that makes me feel like this:
Unfortunately as I type these words, spring break 2012 has officially come to a close. Tomorrow morning I will get up and go to class, any sense of free time lost with the dawn of a new quarter. While my spring break wasn’t composed of fantastic journeys or beautiful beaches, it was still awesome enough [...]
As someone whose high school friends often came from clubs and activities, it’s been weird for me to suddenly not be as involved. I’ve joined a few clubs. Tried some things out. But I still spend most week nights at home. I was beginning to feel lazy. And thus I arrived at the winter involvement [...]
Recently, I experienced a horror I had not foreseen as I embarked upon my first year away from home. It was a grueling twenty four hours, but I’m proud to say I’ve survived. What could such a terrible horror possibly be? Well I’m glad you asked.
As a media enthusiast and frequent consumer of bad cult films, chick flicks, and primetime sitcoms whose episodes now appear in my Netflix instant queue, I’ve noticed that there is a certain hopeful image associated with the college freshman. A distinct image that even I bought into. But after my first quarter at Ohio State, [...]
The end of the quarter is upon us. Being a freshman still, this is a unique experience for me. In high school if you signed up for a class, most likely you were stuck with it for the entire academic year. For better or for worse, stressed or relaxed, great teacher or instructor you hated, [...]
I have faced a great foe these past few weeks. It is the reason I have not blogged in ages, the reason I haven’t gotten a decent night’s sleep since September, and the reason that I put together a haphazard Halloween costume from my closet on Friday night.
