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 […]

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 […]

A short reflection on the incident

Written by    Nov 30, 2016

People most likely have heard and talked about the incident from Monday, November 28, for millions of times, but I think there are some points that are worth being emphasized. The quick reaction of the first responders and the school definitely deserve compliments. In addition, I was truthfully grateful and impressed by how the community gathered and unified as soon as we found it out. […]

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.

Yeah, that actually happened

Written by    Nov 29, 2016

There was no way we were going to come back. Our offense hadn’t moved the ball for three quarters, our field goal kicker couldn’t kick the ball strait, and that team up north was pretty good this year. But then again, we have Urban, JT and the best damn fans in the land. There is not one reason in particular on how we pulled out […]

Post Election Unity

Written by    Nov 17, 2016

If you say that you predicted the election results, you’re probably lying. No one expected this, it’s really hard to believe now that it is more than a week past. Nonetheless, campus is divided in many ways. I know on my floor alone there have been many post election disputes. It’s important that we find things to come together. Those very special characteristics and opinions […]

Blood Battle!

Written by    Nov 16, 2016

Okay, so it may not actually look as exciting as it sounds. And in terms of competitions between Ohio State and Michigan taking place in November, it’s probably not the most renowned or historic. But the month-long Blood Battle between Ohio State and That School Up North is still a great tradition that saves many lives. I did my part and donated blood Monday night in […]

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 […]
