First Day of Spring

Written by    Mar 21, 2017

Or so people tell me. But with it still being cold and spring break having ended, it doesn’t quite feel like the first day of spring. According to the calendar it is though. Seems rather arbitrary. And speaking of spring break, how was everyone’s? Mine was mundane sitting around the house doing nothing of importance. It was great, being a cat. And it’s given me […]

Books Galore!

Written by    Feb 15, 2017

I love love love books, so I was thrilled that Ohio State has Thompson Library with 11 floors full of books to enjoy. However, I quickly found out that while Thompson Library is great when you need books for a research project, it doesn’t have so many books that I want to read for fun.

Time For a Vacation

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Second semester has been stressful! I am sure I am not alone in saying that. New classes, new professors, new organizations to join and also finding a suitable rooming situation for next year have made second semester busy. That’s why I decided to go on a vacation last weekend. I decided on New Orleans, an essential American city to which I had not yet visited. […]

Written by    Feb 1, 2017

I feel as if I have lived in Ohio my whole life. Even though I am from New York, Ohio is without a doubt my new home. Recently, I have picked up a new game called euchre. It is commonly played by people in the Midwest and I had not heard of it before college. Since learning, I have quickly become hooked. I play usually […]

It’s Never Too Late to Try Something New!

Written by    Jan 18, 2017

As a second-semester junior, I can tell that I’m very settled into my routine. Generally I’m fine with this–I like having a routine of things I’m used to and that I enjoy. But I also realized that it’s been a while since I’ve tried anything outside of my routine, and I’m running out of time to do new things! That’s why I’m glad to report […]

We had an Accidental Ryan Gosling Weekend and it was Totally Awesome

Written by    Jan 17, 2017

It’s Week One of spring semester. Through the halls of Taylor Tower, you’re just as likely to see people already cramming for their classes as you are to see people blasting music before heading out to High Street. School resumed only five days ago, and Ohio State students already had a day off. This weekend was an interesting one; a rare time where the melding of […]

Wednesday Dickinson, POE, Twain, Stowe, Sleepy Hollow Pt. 1 Day Three! “Three is a magic number!” That’s a song from Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. that I sang in the 7th grade as the part of George.
