How to Find REAL Primary Sources

Written by    Jun 30, 2019

I’m willing to bet that you’re rolling your eyes just from the title alone. After all, how many times have we all gone over this in high school? These articles are primary sources, those are not, and so on and so forth. To an extent, that knowledge still applies to finding sources for your papers at OSU. The requirements for sources, after all, are completely […]

Year 1 in Review

Written by    May 31, 2019

Though it’s been roughly a month since the school year ended, it’s still kind of hard to believe it. Time seems to flow differently for college than it did in high school. During the school year, it all seemed to stretch out, but when move-out day officially came, it literally felt like only a day had passed since I first moved in. Regardless of this […]

The Finals Countdown

Written by    May 24, 2019

As each semester comes to a close at Ohio State, we all go through another repetition of the dreaded finals week. Fortunately for me, I took my last final yesterday, so this very “special” time of the school year has come to an end. As I look back on the events that led up to it, here is what I have noticed: It feels more […]

Secrets of Thompson Library (Pt. I)

Written by    Apr 15, 2019

Did you know that you can get a Columbus Metropolitan Library card in less than five minutes without even leaving campus? Neither did I. But you can if you go to the circulation desk on the first floor of Thompson Library (if you’re entering from the East turn left right after you rub William Oxley Thompson’s head). Ask one of the library assistants to help […]

How I Still Get 8 Hours of Sleep in College

Written by    Apr 15, 2019

Finals are upon us. Take care of yourself. I’m kind of known for being a grandma: I have a bedtime. At 9:30. I don’t like staying up, and I don’t like going through life tired, especially in school. I want to be able to do my best work, to pay attention, and most of all, to feel healthy. Sleep isn’t for the weak; I think you know […]

An Update on College “Gymtimidation”

Written by    Mar 25, 2019

Earlier this semester, I wrote a post on going to my first rec fitness class at OSU. I’m the person that hates the gym because of my gymtimidation, which really means I’m irrationally anxious about the amount of people that can see me exercising in public—and mostly using every machine and technique incorrectly. Any time I went to one of the recreation centers, I had this fear […]

My First Rec. Fitness Class

Written by    Jan 15, 2019

I hate going to the gym. Walking in the doors gives me anxiety; so many things are happening, everybody is working hard, and they can all tell that I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m told over and over that no one cares what other people do at the gym, but I always feel like everyone is looking at me. I’m uncomfortable for the whole […]

College in the north . . . during winter

Written by    Jan 14, 2019

Okay, I know Ohio isn’t everyone’s dream state. I had high school friends leave to go to college in Tampa, Savannah, Nashville, South Carolina, California . . . places where it’s warm. And it’s around this time of year that I ask classmates who came here from LA or Florida why they chose to come to Ohio. Well, first and foremost, it’s because tOSU is the best university […]

What’s the Wilce?

Written by    Jan 14, 2019

One of the most clichéd complaints about growing up is how we’ve all got to make our own doctor’s appointments. This complaint is no less true at Ohio State. Unless you maintain an extremely healthy lifestyle, you will get sick during your four years here. I’ve only been here one semester, and I’ve already been through a stomach virus. Naturally, I asked the older students […]

Lana Del Rey at the Schott

Written by    Feb 12, 2018

Although there are many perks to attending The Ohio State University, one of my favorites is being in Columbus, Ohio. Being in a large city creates many opportunities to see some of my favorite performers in various venues near campus. A few weeks ago, I spontaneously decided to see Lana del Rey at the Schottenstein Center. The Jerome Schottenstein Center, or more commonly known as […]
