And that’s a wrap…

Written by    May 10, 2016

Even though I have already spent an entire week at home, it still doesn’t seem possible that my freshman year at Ohio State is over.

What am I doing in Ohio?

But in the end, I felt like one minute I was on the beach, and the next I was walking through my first summer thunderstorm. When I meet new people and tell them that I’m from California, the first thing they ask is: […]

Buckeye Kickoff: Class of 2019 enters the Shoe

Written by    Aug 29, 2015

One of the coolest parts about going to Ohio State is Ohio Stadium. I have only been here for a week, but I don’t think I will ever be able to get over being so close to such a historic Mecca of college football. Seriously.
