Written by    Aug 15, 2014

(check out parts 1 and 2: class-related tips and my essential packing list) Even though it rarely takes me more than 15 minutes to walk most places on campus, it’s handy to know how to use the bus system when it’s cold, dark, or—like me—you’re lazy.

A Few of My Favorite Buckeye Things

Written by    May 27, 2014

I just recently got Instagram (I know I’m late haha). As someone who used to reject Instagram and preferred real cameras, I have succumbed to technology, especially since it’s a lot more convenient than uploading pics to a computer and editing each by hand. Since I have only about 10 posts, I was thinking of ways I could use my Instagram to its fullest potential. […]

You Know It’s Cold When…..

Written by    Jan 24, 2014

1. The number of layers you are wearing exceeds how many fingers you have 2. Societal clothing norms become unimportant (I mean, I have three hats…why shouldn’t I wear all of them?) 3. Seeing a person running frantically towards the nearest building is no longer a cause for concern (Sorry kid, you can run but you can’t hide!) 4. The weather forecast replaces monday morning 8 […]

The Deep Freeze

Written by    Jan 23, 2014

Wow. It’s cold. Apparently nobody remembered to tell Ohio anything about global warming: the high temperatures for next Tuesday and Wednesday are 1 and 5  degrees, respectively. Oh, and Ohio State was forced to cancel class two days in a row for the probably first time since this guy was still wandering around campus.   Those of you who aren’t accustomed to cold winters may […]

Rare Sights

Written by    Jan 10, 2014

Last night I encountered some rare sights around the Ohio State campus. First: empty fourth-floor seats in Thompson Library.     Actually, there were empty seats everywhere. Most people don’t need to do time in the library on the second day of class (unlike yours truly, who is already beginning to panic). There were probably about thirty people total in Thompson–or at least, that’s how […]

Snow Day Fun!

Written by    Jan 6, 2014

Cooped up in this subzero weather, I’m glad I don’t have to go to class. But I’m also a bit bored, mindlessly watching the Teen Wolf marathon on MTV. I was craving chocolate and I didn’t want to go outside to get something, so I decided to do something I hadn’t done all year in my apartment…BAKE. I’m not much of a sweets person, but […]

Baby’s First Snow Angel

Written by    Dec 13, 2013

Considering November 10, 2013 was the first time I’d ever laid eyes on real, actual snow, I’d have to say the falling flurries might be one of my favorite things ever. Being a Southern California girl, born and raised, I grew up 18 years by the beach, sand, and sun. Coming to Ohio State, I knew this would change, and fast.
