Hello, friends! Happy Monday! As midterms have started to hit (hard), I just wanted to share with you all a couple of cute little pick-me-ups that I’ve stumbled upon in the past couple of weeks. The first was for a club I’m in called “TEDx” (we organize TEDx talks on campus with Ohio State affiliated speakers). During the involvement fair, a certain someone showed up […]
For those of you who don’t know, second semester of freshman year of college is a little bit like seasons 1 – 8 of “How I Met Your Mother.” As in, that’s what it’s famous for. Armed with the confidence of surviving finals and rattled by the shock of going home for winter break and finding yourself utterly bored, you’re ready to come back. And […]
Happy New Year everyone! This past Christmas, I was gifted a really amazing present. My wonderful sister, who once gave me a homemade paperweight, made me a calendar entitled “2017: The Year of Powerful Women,” given my feminist awakening. Each month featured one of my famous female role models (my mother took this opportunity to ask why she was not included in the calendar) with […]
Guys, I am ready for class. You know. Classy stuff. Classy entertainment. Classy food. I am ready for something different and cool but not painfully hipster.

An alternate, less pretentious title: Finals Week. I would like to believe that I will someday save the world. Don’t you? And that’s, like, what’s supposed to motivate us, right? Take this one microbiology course and it’ll enable you to, let’s say, one day become a doctor. That dream of being a doctor is ambition, and we are ambitious beings, and this ought to be […]
In her Harvard commencement speech in 2008, J.K. Rowling said, “Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared.” In the light of recent events, I […]
The other day, I was talking about business majors with a couple engineers. One of them said, “You know those people who play beach volleyball by Curl at 9 p.m. on a Sunday? Those are the business majors!” And I thought, dang, those engineers are savage. But actually. Even though I am a business major, I have NEVER played beach volleyball by Curl! (I say […]
I once mistook a wave as an invitation for a tentative high five. This is why writing is my preferred medium of communication. I enjoy playing cards, visiting cities, and debating the best methods of education reform. I am both a Hufflepuff and a Gryffindor.
