A Turkey on the Oval

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.

FutureLink!

Written by    Nov 21, 2016

So…if you’re anything like me, you procrastinate from time to time (not to say that homework isn’t always super megafun, cool, awesome, yay). One way I like to make myself feel better about my habit is to spend that time looking for internships/jobs. That’s less bad, right? It’s practical knowledge. I’ll have to do it eventually, ok? And that’s where FutureLink comes in. For those of […]

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. […]

Am I on the right path?

Written by    Nov 8, 2016

You’re eighteen. You’re in college. You’re an adult. Now choose what you want to do for the rest of your life. This mindset has been engraved in my brain for years now. I’ve always had the preconception that, magically, when I became eighteen and made my way to a big, adult university, that I would have the exact major in mind, with an exact career […]

SOS, life is in shambles

Written by    Oct 27, 2016

Guys. I just had the worst shift of my entire life. And it’s only my second week of work. I’m an office assistant in my residence hall, and don’t get me wrong, it’s great. I think it’s as awesome as a minimum wage job gets. It’s convenient, I get to choose my hours, and I get to do homework while I’m sitting at the front […]

Written by    Oct 24, 2016

I’m about two months into the whirlwind that is my first year at The Ohio State University and I’ve spent a majority of that time focused on my major. As an architecture student, I’m required to take a studio class my first year. Studio is where I learn the various drawing and modeling techniques of my field.

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 […]
