A little appreciation for Ohio weather

Written by    Jan 20, 2017

People always ask me what are some of the things that I love about Ohio State. Trust me, there are plenty; the list practically goes on and on. But, one interesting thing that always baffles people is that I love the weather here in Columbus. Now, Midwest weather is nothing to rave about. It is definitely not like Florida with its warm days, the sun […]

How to Handle Being Sick Away at College

Written by    Jan 19, 2017

I recently experienced a nightmare of a weekend! It’s every students’ fear of getting really sick at school, right in the beginning of a new semester when the weather’s cold and you can’t afford to skip class. Yet, that’s exactly what happened to me. Unlike other illnesses where you may feel the onset of symptoms and have a while to brace yourself before it all […]

Not Just A Day Off

Written by    Jan 18, 2017

In 4th grade, I went to a friend’s house on Martin Luther King Day. When I walked in the door, my friend’s dad joked, “This is going to be great! I have a lot of different books and newspaper articles about Martin Luther King that we can look at for hours!” I laughed, but the truth was I never really took a lot of time […]

It’s Never Too Late to Try Something New!

Written by    Jan 18, 2017

As a second-semester junior, I can tell that I’m very settled into my routine. Generally I’m fine with this–I like having a routine of things I’m used to and that I enjoy. But I also realized that it’s been a while since I’ve tried anything outside of my routine, and I’m running out of time to do new things! That’s why I’m glad to report […]

Written by    Jan 17, 2017

I’m sure we’ve heard it a million times by now but man 2016 sucked. The best part about it was that neither I (nor Beyoncé) died within those twelve months. But yeah honestly other than that it was the worrrst.

The First Week of a Second Semester

Written by    Jan 17, 2017

So, how are all of you? Got past the first week of the semester with flying colors? No? I’ve heard this phrase a lot these few days: “This has been a long week. And we still have a whole semester left,” or at least something similar. And I agree! Maybe it’s because I’ve got an 8 a.m. this semester, but this week has been unusually […]
