Well hey there strangers! It sure has been awhile, and I am ever so sorry that I haven’t posted in awhile. I was busy taking all of my classes this semester*, but now that those are thankfully over, I might have some time to document my fairly mundane existence. Note how as soon as it’s finals week I have all the inspiration I need and could probably come up with hundreds of blog posts and maybe even write a book. Read the rest of this entry »

There’s only one game, and we won. And I was lucky enough to see it live in person. Read the rest of this entry »

Long ago in a galaxy far far away when this particular blogger was a freshman, there were clear compartments dividing my life. Nothing mixed and every group of people that meant anything to me was pretty clearly defined as different. Read the rest of this entry »

Ever have a really, really bad week? I had one of my first college freakouts a few weeks ago, and alas, I’m still alive.

It’s been a good break for me. I finished a final exam the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (not so fun), but got to forget about school for at least two days before studying for more finals this coming week.
Enough about school, though. During the break, I got to spend time with family, but more importantly, EAT with family. I’m lucky that my mom is an AMAZING cook because Thanksgiving becomes the most celebrated event in our house among us and our family friends. Each dish my mom makes is a favorite among someone.
I personally love my mom’s mashed potatoes and I always get to be the one to help make it. Some of our family friends love my mom’s green bean salad or her homemade cranberry relish.

Sometimes college life is just notttt cool. Like that time I thought this boy in my Spanish class was looking at me all semester but really he was just looking out the window. Or the time last week when I put my check for the water bill in one of those mail slots and then realized I forgot to put a stamp on the envelope.

The moment I have forever been waiting for has finally arrived: the semester is drawing to a close. I’ve been burnt out on fall semester since week six. Only two presentations, three papers, and a final exam stand between me and winter break. Even making that list of obligations is stressful, so maybe we should discuss some of the things that have been stressing me out all semester but are finally gone. Read the rest of this entry »

There’s this thing going around on Facebook and I’m sure you’ve probably heard about it. It reminds me of those “truth is” days when you like someone’s status and they tell you what they “truly” think about you.
Well, now I see “LMS [like my status] for a number,” which means if you like a status, that person will assign you a number. After you receive this number, you are to tell that many truths about yourself.
I was wondering how much you, my lovely blog-readers, actually know about me, which I’m assuming isn’t very much (I don’t even think my profile has all the correct information on it). So, I’m going to tell you about me now. Read the rest of this entry »

A lot, apparently.
When my “West Campus bound” bus passed the stadium and headed across the bridge, I watched the Towers fade into the distance (think of a really sappy movie with a girl from, say, the 1940s who’s watching the “guy she never got together with” get smaller and smaller as her train pulls away from the station…) and realized that “West Campus” has two completely different meanings in two separate contexts.
Context 1: “Yeah, I live on West Campus.”
Interpretation: “I live so close to the stadium that I can see the fifty-yard line from my bathroom window!” *
Context 2: “Yeah, my class meets on West Campus.”
Interpretation: “My class is very far away and I have to cross the Olentangy to get there.”

It’s been quite a while, and I have a few posts in the works, but here is something that is very recent in my life…
It was just a normal day… getting off from work and I was headed over to the 5th Annual Bellwether Improv Festival to see some friends and improv professionals perform (check it out on twitter #Bell5 and @8thfloorimprov … its awesome!). Chatting with former OSU president E. Gordon Gee… You know ;)

And so the calendar has flipped from October to November and it’s that wonderful time of year again. No I wasn’t referring to the last of the beautiful fall weather, or the delicious feasts on Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season, or even to the glorious spectacle that is the OSU-Michigan game at the end of the month. (Although, all of those things are great, and probably the reason why November is one of my favorite months.)

Do you have the right to bear arms? Or do we need to reach out and really look at this situation we are in. (Shh, this post isn’t about what you think…)
