A little appreciation for Ohio weather

Written by    Jan 20, 2017

People always ask me what are some of the things that I love about Ohio State. Trust me, there are plenty; the list practically goes on and on. But, one interesting thing that always baffles people is that I love the weather here in Columbus. Now, Midwest weather is nothing to rave about. It is definitely not like Florida with its warm days, the sun […]

How to Properly Use Your Day Off

Written by    Jan 17, 2017

  One of my favorite things about Ohio State is the endless opportunities handed to its students. One of those opportunities is MLK Day of Service. Twice a year, Pay It Forward, a community organization on campus, hosts a service day for the entire university. These days give students and faculty the chance to go out into the Columbus community and volunteer. The volunteers are split up into groups […]

A Buckeye Holiday

Written by    Dec 29, 2016

“It’s another holiday season here in Columbus,” The radio says on my way home from work, “Meaning we’re all visiting Wild Lights at the zoo, prepping for holiday meals, and mentally preparing ourselves for the Buckeyes’ next football game.” I’m in the car on my way home from where I work in Worthington. The implication that the College Football Playoffs are so run of the […]

Night at the Art Museum

Written by    Dec 20, 2016

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. Now, let me tell you that I am by no means an artist. Or an art critic, for that matter. To this day I believe my art sculpture from the fourth grade did not burst in the kiln but was […]

Football and Family

Written by    Nov 30, 2016

For the longest time, I was never really interested in football. I loved watching it, but I never took much interest to the sport itself. The rules were confusing, the games were always at least 4 hours long, and I just didn’t really understand why people enjoyed the sport so much. This, of course, was before I came to Ohio State. Coming to this school […]

Fall in love with OSU

Written by    Nov 21, 2016

I have never been a fan of fall. Not that I am completely against it, but it just has never been my thing. It had always marked the beginning of the end: the end to warm weather, the end to summer tans, pretty much the end to everything. Ok, let me now rephrase my first sentence in this blog. I have never really been a […]

How to Run a Marathon When You Don’t Like Running

Written by    Nov 21, 2016

Recently, I participated in the Columbus City marathon only a few short weeks ago. There are over 20,000 people who participate in either the full or half marathon and it is a Boston Marathon Qualifying preliminary race. Now picture a girl who hasn’t run further than six miles in her life before the beginning of this past summer. She never did cross country or track […]

Finding the Garden: The Aftermath of the 2016 Presidential Election

Written by    Nov 10, 2016

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 […]

COSI After Dark

Written by    Oct 28, 2016

I am constantly bragging about the endless opportunities Ohio State has to offer. That being said, Ohio State not only provides students with countless academic opportunities, but also social opportunities. One of the best parts of this university is that it is located right next Columbus.  Columbus is home to Broadway performances, start-up restaurants, professional sports teams, shopping, art galleries, museums, and so much more. It is only […]
