Ben’s STEP Adventure- Day 2

Written by    Dec 27, 2016

Tuesday New Bedford and Salem 6:30 a.m. Praise the Lord/Buddha/Vishnu/your respective deity that we finally got to sleep in (relatively speaking). Luckily, our hotel’s bathroom window didn’t close fully, so we had a lovely juxtaposition between the 40 degree bathroom and the 85 degree bedroom, causing me to wake up in a sweat (and not the usual kind I get from dreams or eating too […]

Ben’s STEP Adventure- Day 1

Written by    Dec 27, 2016

Monday Walden Pond, Old Manse, Emerson’s House, Downtown Concord, Harvard 4:30 a.m. Nothing says “FUN! RELAXING! ENJOYABLE! VACATION” like waking up at 4:30 a.m. in the middle of December. Well luckily, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I DID. I’ll skip the boring part, but just to inform you of my journey, my brother, my Co-Ra, my friend, and myself all set off for John Glenn International at 5:15 […]

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas…

Written by    Dec 27, 2016

When all through the house, Not a creature was stirring… Except for that racket upstairs. Ah, hello again. I’d have linked a picture to a spider in a Santa hat, but I decided not to. Christmas is an interesting time for me. My family doesn’t celebrate it. But you’d never be able to guess if you were to look at old photos of me, standing […]

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 […]

Written by    Nov 30, 2016

One of the activities I was most excited for this semester was guiding the Boo Radley Society’s Thanksgiving event, and I’m thankful to say it was well received and enjoyed by all.

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 […]

Taking a Break From Classes

Written by    Nov 17, 2016

We’re in the home stretch of the semester, so in order to rest up for these last few weeks I took advantage of the three day weekend and took a trip with my friends to the beautiful Niagara Falls.

Seeing Stars, Pt. 2

Written by    Nov 15, 2016

If you haven’t read my first installment of Seeing Stars, you can find it here. This year has been great so far when it comes to concerts, and I finally got to go to different venues for the first time. Three musicians and three months later, I’m looking forward to what the rest of the school year holds, and the fangirling is still going strong. Ben […]

Always Look on the Bright Side

Written by    Nov 10, 2016

Ah. Woke up today, the day after the elections. And a lot of emotions from everyone. Which was to be expected no matter who won. Now, is this going to be a blog about the consequences of the election? A blog about my thoughts on its end? Feelings about our future president? No. Enough of that’s already swarming around the hive known as the internet. […]

Forget Thanksgiving, I need a post-election break

Written by    Nov 9, 2016

I don’t know about you, but this election has been pretty emotionally exhausting for me. As it was my first time voting, this is really the first election I paid a lot of attention to. After 18 long, seemingly endless months of campaigning and mud-slinging, we have finally arrived at the end. Now I’m not here to try to sway your vote at the last […]
