A Game of Carrom

Written by    Oct 25, 2017

So last weekend I spent my Sunday night at OSU’s own Hindi Club Game Night, rather than continuing to do homework (like any sensible person). And it was indeed worth it, for we all had a lot of fun. And I also learned a couple new games! Go-Fish (No, I had never played Go-Fish before) The highlight of the night, of course, was the Carrom […]

Dawn of the Second…Year

Written by    Sep 12, 2017

No, the Moon isn’t falling, don’t worry. I hope that everyone enjoyed their Labour Day Weekend. It was certainly relaxing for me, and in that relaxation, I reflected upon my second year of college. And I marveled at how familiar yet different it was from my first year. The biggest difference being that coming back to college was like (and I know what I’m about […]

The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards Ceremony

Written by    Sep 12, 2017

Now, most of you might be asking what the title is referring to. To be more precise, the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, according to the brochure/pamphlet, is an award that recognizes authors  “whose works confront racism and celebrate diversity.” They were established by Cleveland poet and philanthropist Edith Anisfield Wolf, and are fittingly held in Cleveland annually. But wait, why do I have the brochure? Because […]

The Eclipse

Written by    Aug 23, 2017

Was awesome, though that word is truly overused. Unfortunately, for us in Columbus, we only had a partial eclipse. And the difference between a partial eclipse and a total eclipse, even if that partial is 90%? It makes a big difference. Unless it’s a total, it still looks like the sun is in the sky (though the light did change a bit.) Those of you […]

OSU’s Nuclear Reactor Lab

Written by    Apr 17, 2017

Did you know that the university has a nuclear reactor? Cause it does, right on West Campus. There’s no need to panic–first of all, because it’s incredibly safe. Second, because it’s a Research Reactor, not a Power Reactor. This reactor doesn’t power anything except for the tried and tested scientific method–poke something and see what happens (metaphorically in this case, of course.) Now, I hadn’t […]

The Actual First Day of Spring

Written by    Apr 11, 2017

For reals this time. The weather’s beautiful, and so very alien after so many long months of cold. The sun is shining, the skies aren’t cloudy, there’s a pleasant breeze…Ohio State has come to life after a (according to a friend) short and mild winter. I take his word for it since it’s my first winter in a long time. And after a week of midterms, […]

First Day of Spring

Written by    Mar 21, 2017

Or so people tell me. But with it still being cold and spring break having ended, it doesn’t quite feel like the first day of spring. According to the calendar it is though. Seems rather arbitrary. And speaking of spring break, how was everyone’s? Mine was mundane sitting around the house doing nothing of importance. It was great, being a cat. And it’s given me […]

A Trip to Green Bank

Written by    Feb 21, 2017

West Virginia. Smack dab in the Radio Quiet Zone, where radio transmissions aren’t allowed. Thus no cell service or wi-fi, and no such devices are allowed within the zone. But why would anyone go here, let alone live in it?

Maniacal Midterm Laughter

Written by    Feb 2, 2017

Ah, you know you’re starting to go off the deep end into the tea kettle when you make your blog titles alliterate. I’m currently writing this blog during a study break. Now normally I don’t do this but this week was a doozy. This week decided to throw everything it’s got at me, even though I’m aware that weeks are not sentient entities and I’m […]

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 […]
