I Do Really Well in a Really Hard Class

Written by    May 9, 2017

It’s January. To be specific, it’s the first day of school after a long and difficult autumn semester, one which freaked me out so much I dropped all my honors classes except one in exchange for regular classes. I’m in Jennings Hall for a 9 a.m. Math 1172 class. The next class in my calculus series after the one I skated through and disappointed myself in […]

I learned my lesson

Written by    May 1, 2017

Last semester, the first time I picked up my calculus textbook was six days before the final. All semester, since my lecturer was a little dull, and since it was a class I had already technically taken (Calc 1 and 2), I didn’t feel I needed to study as much. This was a feeling I carried all semester, until seven days before the final when […]

Best Study Places on Campus

Written by    Apr 4, 2017

Its the final stretch of the year–yay! Whether you still have a few last minute midterms to knock out like I did yesterday (biochemistry and organic chemistry–yuck), a paper or two, or you are getting a big head start on finals season, choosing the right study spots for what you need to get done is essential.

The End is Near

Written by    Apr 4, 2017

How is it possible that the year is almost over? With under 30 days left, it’s important to make every single one count, Buckeyes. We’ve almost made it. For some of us, it’s our first experience here at Ohio State, and for some others, this is the last.

Cute Things I Find When I Should Be Doing Other Things

Written by    Feb 13, 2017

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 […]

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 […]

What I have learned since the second semester started: academic-wise.

Written by    Jan 30, 2017

This second semester has been severe—I have 8 a.m. classes, which I totally did not intend to do so, and my schedule is poorly distributed with four classes on Wednesdays and Fridays, but only one on Tuesdays. And I would love to share what it has been and what I learned from last three weeks. 8 a.m. is not so bad: I was devastated to […]

Gotta Pick ‘Em All!

Written by    Oct 19, 2016

If you’re looking for a break from midterms or just want to get off campus in general, I highly recommend the 20 minute drive to Lynd’s Farm in Pataskala, Ohio. Lynd’s offers fresh apple picking as well as a pumpkin patch, a corn maze, and a market that sells locally made Ohio products and produce. After an amazing four hours at the farm, I got […]

Taking midterms versus being taken by midterms

Written by    Oct 6, 2016

As of yesterday, the mid-semester assessments of what I’ve learned and what I haven’t were all officially finished. I completed three midterms; one I took, another took me, and a third remains inconclusive. In college, midterms are just like high school tests, albeit worth more points and not as frequent. By extension, they’re more important. I realized this much too late for my physics class, […]
