Buckeyes Abroad: Paris

Written by    Oct 7, 2019

Hardly has a city ever been more romanticize, written about, painted about and sung about than Paris. I tried to go into my time in Paris with no expectations, and I was absolutely blown away. I was surprised by how navigable the city is: The metro is easy to use, and many of Paris’ top tourist attractions are located centrally to others. We saw as […]

Buckeyes Abroad: Barcelona

Written by    Oct 7, 2019

Barcelona was more touristy and less beach-y than I expected; for example, the famous Las Ramblas street was crowded at all times of day and night. Still, it was a neat place to explore! I personally found Barcelona not as quaint or beautiful as Madrid (read all about my Madrid trip here), but it is still an amazing city! If you go to Barcelona, you […]

Buckeyes Abroad: Madrid

Written by    Oct 7, 2019

In August I traveled to Madrid, a vibrant city with rich history and thriving culture. Madrid has beautiful architecture — every alley, every portico, every plaza is out of a movie— and it’s easy to navigate on foot. We stayed right next to the Prado Museum, one of the world’s finest art museums, and we spent several hours there our first day. It’s free for […]

A Room of My Own

Written by    Sep 18, 2019

After spending the first three years of college living with a roommate, I finally moved into a room that was mine and mine alone. Last year, there were seven people living in my six-bedroom house, and I lived in the attic with one of my housemates. While there was plenty of space and Jake and I got along well,  I was eager to move one […]

You Never Know Where an Opportunity Will Come From

Written by    Sep 17, 2019

Well, I thought I knew where my semester was headed. I had the perfect schedule set in stone (no Monday classes, per usual), I had scheduled out which days I’d be going to the gym and going to events with friends. I had time blocked out to study and do homework and write. And then I got an unexpected email. I attended the Career and […]

Surprising ways college does (and doesn’t) change you

Written by    Sep 8, 2019

College is one of the biggest transition times in life. It hits right in the time of life when you’re trying to figure out how adulthood works and who you are as an individual separate from your family and the place you were raised. During some typical reflection time on my life and the first two thirds of college, I realized how unexpected some of the […]

A sneak peak into my summer internship at Paycor

I joined a student organization last minute and it changed my life

Written by    Sep 6, 2019

Right as finals week hit, a friend of mine told me that she needed a position filled in a student organization she was involved in called Camp Kesem. She said that she had counselors drop and needed a program counselor to fill in during week one. My response surprised both of us: I said yes. In the next month, I hurried to complete hours of […]

Home for the Summer

Written by    Sep 5, 2019

This summer, I returned home to the great city of Cleveland for a tax internship at a company called Danaher. This was my first professional accounting experience since deciding to study accounting my senior year of high school, and the internship definitely confirmed my interest in the field. Danaher has subsidiaries in over 100 countries, and nearly all of them have to file tax returns […]

Dead Poets Society: College edition

Written by    Aug 27, 2019

I like outcasts. That’s one of the main reasons I took a poetry seminar last semester. I was ready to see all those goth, Panic! At The Disco and Mitski-loving writers. I love people who are overly emotional, struggling to face their demons, and held back by society’s wishes. Just reveal to me more of your troubles, you weirdos! The second reason I took a […]
