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 […]

Hi, Dad) Unlike the rest of my entries, this one was written approximately a week later, following Christmas (things have been hectic, I’m sorry, you understand? I hope? If not, it doesn’t really matter, all of them […]

Ben’s STEP Adventure- Day 3

Written by    Dec 28, 2016

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. Feel free to cast me in Hamilton any day now, I’ll take any part I can get. Anyway, yes, the third day of the adventure was full of many […]

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 […]

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 […]
