Everyday kindness

Written by    Sep 27, 2016

Stress has a tendency to unravel us. When we have a heavy load of homework in our classes or one thing or another to worry about, the weight of it all is overwhelming. We have this propensity to sink into ourselves, our mind constantly meandering away from reality and our eyes oblivious to what is around us. We become wrapped up in our work, our […]

One of my responsibilities, as an executive member for the Boo Radley Society, is to recruit and interview new students for the organization. (And that’s just one of the many things I’ve been up to since I last posted.)

An interminable swarm of work

Written by    Sep 26, 2016

You know, whenever I call home, one of the most frequent questions I receive are: “Are you getting bored without us? Probably not, with all the work you have.” Well, yes, I do miss the banter (Brother, if you’re reading this, then Ha!), but I was unaware of the work. The Past Me, when told that he would be neck deep in work and wouldn’t have […]

A Very Columbus Weekend

Written by    Sep 26, 2016

  When I was a freshman, part of Commencement was “exploring Columbus” as Ohio State is so keenly sibling to, or arguably a gear within, Ohio’s capital. While this event can certainly help students from out of the town get acquainted with the city they will now have as a secondary home, there is definitely a difference between walking around a city and experiencing it through […]

An open letter to Buckeye Bikers

Written by    Sep 26, 2016

Dear student bikers, I’m all for getting in some good exercise and getting to class on time, but safety NEEDS to be a priority! In the first five weeks of the semester, I have seen myself and so many other fellow students almost trampled by careless bikers. There seems to be a blatant disregard for the safety of other students, especially pedestrians that are trying […]

What you didn’t know about the Oval

Written by    Sep 26, 2016

When most people think of the Oval, they think of it as a central point on campus, the home of the Thompson Library, and a place where bells and bagpipes fill the air as students walk to class. Recently, I had the opportunity to see a side of the Oval that few people know about.

Being an adult for seven straight days

Written by    Sep 23, 2016

Yesterday, while scrolling through quotes to put as an Instagram caption for my birthday post, I paused for a second to think about what a whirlwind my week has been. Since the beginning of the week, I stumbled into adulthood in more than one way. I hesitate to say it, but as I sit here I feel like in five days I’ve grown up more than […]

Stress, anxiety and fun

Written by    Sep 21, 2016

College is unbelievably fun. Almost everyday there is something new to do and experience. At the same time, we all have classes that are very stressful. I know for me it has been very hard to study. Even when I do the necessary precautions such as going to the library, leaving my phone behind and sitting up straight, I still have found myself constantly daydreaming […]

Professors: a profession

Written by    Sep 21, 2016

Many of my teachers in high school were very fond of informing us what college is like; specifically, how cold-hearted and ruthless our college professors would be. Five weeks into classes, I’m starting to wonder if they were just trying to make themselves seem less cold-hearted and ruthless. Let me put it this way: there are different stressors in college, but the professors are not […]
