The Columbus Water Lantern Festival

Written by    Oct 11, 2018

Surprise, surprise: I went to another lantern festival. Shoutout to both Columbus for having so many and the invasive technology in my phone that knows what to advertise to me so I can live out my Tangled dreams. This time, I took my lovely friend Rose and the festival actually took placeย in Columbus as advertised, along the Scioto river and across from COSI and Genoa […]

The Best Last-Minute Decision

Written by    May 1, 2018

For the first couple of months of spring semester, I thought I would spend my spring break back at home. The freezing cold walks to class and late nights cramming for midterms made the idea of a week of relaxation and sleeping in at home all the more appealing. Besides, I’d get to hang out with high school friends and see my pets again. What […]

Exploring Columbus: German Village

Written by    May 1, 2018

Another place in my city that I’ve never visited is German Village, despite hearing a lot of great things about it. Since it’s just a 10 minute drive from campus, I headed over to the area with a friend to see what all the hype was about. Our first stop (and biggest priority) was The Book Loft. I’ve heard it’s big enough to get lost […]

Exploring Columbus: My first visit to the Arena District

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve lived in a suburb of Columbus my whole life, but I never really get out and explored the city. I’ve been downtown quite a few times in my life, but I don’t know the city too well, and there are a lot of hidden gems I’ve been missing. I have gone to the statehouse and the Ohio Theatre and the […]

Opportunities for Creativity

Written by    Mar 8, 2018

Being a creative personย with a busy schedule is proving to be a very hard task. With assignments, projects, papers, and work deadlines, I rarely find time to create art just for myself. But I’ve found some spots for creativity in the strangest places.

Everybody was Stage Combat Fightin’

Written by    Jan 2, 2018

Last spring, the Ohio State Department of Theatre announced that one of the grad students would teach an advanced movement-based stage combat class, and you can bet I was down for the chance to channel my inner James Bond.

The Perks of Attending a Big University

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Lots of high school seniors are afraid to commit to a large college, fearing that their classes will be impersonal or that they won’t be able to make friends. The truth is, I have lots of small classes at OSU, even as a freshman. I’ve met so many amazing people, and there are loads of benefits of being a student at a big school, such […]

Written by    Oct 31, 2017

I stole my friend’s camera because I’m that kind of friend. I’ve always wanted to capture my favorite spots at Ohio State so I went around and took pictures on a warm Sunday evening. Here are my favorites:

Halloween on a College Budget

Written by    Oct 31, 2017

Everyone wants to celebrate Halloween, but no college student wants to fork over money for a costume. What could be better than three costume ideas that won’t cost you a dime? These three ideas can be made from things you probably already have in your closet: 1. Katniss Everdeen Tuck a black shirt into a pair of olive green pants, throw on a leather jacket […]

A Game of Carrom

Written by    Oct 25, 2017

So last weekend I spent my Sunday night at OSU’s own Hindi Club Game Night, rather than continuing to do homework (like any sensible person). And it was indeed worth it, for we all had a lot of fun. And I also learned a couple new games! Go-Fish (No, I had never played Go-Fish before) The highlight of the night, of course, was the Carrom […]
