Why having a ton of time doesn’t mean that anything gets done…

Written by    Jul 16, 2012

I’ve literally been planning out blog posts in my head for weeks. Like the time when my family and I went on a roadtrip through Tennessee, and were sitting “ten feet off of Beale” (ooh I love that song… but only realized that those were the real lyrics when i looked them up in memphis haha) where we met the Mayor of Memphis, TN and […]

Why Race Shouldn’t Matter In The Public Education Setting

Written by    Apr 28, 2012

At work the other day, one of my tasks was to compile a spreadsheet of applicants to a certain program of study. I was asked to look up students’ names, colleges within the university, majors/minors, GPAs, and ethnicity/race. I couldn’t help but ask one of my supervisors–why does ethnicity/race need to be added to this data compilation? The answer I was given was something along […]

Sloopy’s Sloppiest.

Written by    Jan 29, 2012

Ahhh Sloopy’s Diner; the perfect swipe-alicious restaurant on campus and my current place of employment. I love my job and the people I work with, but lately, work has been hard on all of us and here’s why…

Life As a Work-Study Student

Written by    Nov 16, 2011

It’s no surprise that the cost of tuition keeps going up and up and the amount of money a family has for education remains about the same. It’s not really cheap to go to school, and that’s when you have look for loans, scholarships, grants, and not to mention, jobs. I made the decision to go out-of-state for school, but hey, at the rate the […]

resumes, career fairs, interviews, Oh my!

Written by    Oct 10, 2011

1 single 8.5×11 sheet of paper? psh. Resumes for undergrads should only fit on 1 side of 1 page with no smaller than size 10 font. Mine is size 10.5 😉 My resume is a little packed, but I always air on the side of too much, rather than too little. My resume is by no means perfect, but it is always a work in […]

My First Quarter Without Swipes

Written by    Oct 6, 2011

Despite the many, many upsides to living on campus, there is just one thing that you will always miss. That one thing that brought nothing but good memories. That one thing you will never forget. I’m talking, of course, about meal swipes.

Judging My Classes After One Day

Written by    Sep 22, 2011

In just the first two days, I have gone through all four of my classes once. Since you only really go through the syllabus, there is actually very little that you can predict over a 10 week period. That is, of course, unless you’re me. Then you go ahead and make judgements early and pretend to know how each is going to play out. I […]

Balancing Two Jobs and School

Written by    Sep 20, 2011

I know, I know. Shame on me: school should be the bigger number in the equation, your education always comes first, blah blah. Love you too, Mom. But it has to be done. And I’ll tell you why.
