How to “do it all” and still get 8 hours of sleep

Written by    Jul 31, 2018

College is overwhelming. There are lots of opportunities that you are encouraged to try, lots of difficult classes that take up much of your personal time, and not as much money in your pocket as you are used to. Trust me, I get it: I am currently a pre-med double major who works two jobs, volunteers each week, studies for the MCAT and serves as president […]

Where, Oh Where, Has Rylan Been?

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Hi Y’all! It’s me, Rylan. Yes, I’m alive(?)! I’ve been a little absent from the blog this semester, and I wanted to explain why. Hopefully, in the process, I might also shed some light on the possibilities of student life at OSU and the art of being busy (which are both more apt topics than me simply venting about my routine). Here’s what I’ve been up […]

Ohio State Job Board

Written by    Feb 20, 2018

I may be a second-semester senior, but I’m still learning about new resources that Ohio State has to offer. For example, I recently learned about the job board on Ohio State’s Student Financial Aid website. Many employers both on- and off-campus post their job openings on the website, so it’s a great place to find jobs to apply for. You can filter it to show […]

Internship Mindset

Written by    Feb 14, 2018

Hiya there, pals! Last week I celebrated (read: solid head nod) my first month-iversary with my internship. Okkkkk, technically I also interned for the same company over the summer, but I took a break last semester. And, this is my first time holding down an internship while also taking a full course load of classes. As a junior prematurely gaining graduation anxiety, I’ve found myself […]

The College Guide to Juggling

Written by    Nov 27, 2017

Howdy! Alright, so plot twist: I don’t actually know how to juggle–at least not in the literal sense (I’m still getting over the loss of my circus career). But, I do know a thing or two about life juggling.

I’m dropping out of school and fleeing the state.

Written by    Oct 19, 2017

No, this is not click bait. It’s true. Friends, family, loyal followers: as of Spring 2018 I will no longer be a college student. I’m giving up the cold, snowless Columbus winters, the vanilla lattes at Scott Connecting Grounds, my cosy bedroom In Taylor Tower and my long study sessions at 18th Avenue Library. I’m officially giving up making the long walk to the Gateway just […]
