John Mulaney? In Person?

Written by    Jan 16, 2018

Back in June, I found out that one of my favorite comedians, John Mulaney, would be coming to Columbus as part of his national Kid Gorgeous tour. I was even more excited when I found out that he would be performing at Mershon Auditorium on campus–just a five-minute walk away from my building! I quickly bought tickets with my friend Jason, and thus began seven long […]

Written by    Jan 8, 2018

Another one of my goals for 2018 is to make myself like hard-boiled eggs. I know this doesn’t sound like a typical New Years’ Resolution, but I’m being 100 percent serious. I hate hard-boiled eggs.

Written by    Jan 2, 2018

As an incoming freshman arriving at a large university such as Ohio State, you will be confronted with a lot of options to choose from. Sometimes the abundance of options is a blessing and sometimes it is a curse. For me, choosing a meal plan was one of the hardest choices I had to make.

Going Home

Written by    Jan 2, 2018

Perhaps one of the hardest parts about going to college is the fact that you will at times wonder where your real home is. Is home the place you left all those months ago? Is it the place where you played in the streets as a young child? Or is it quaint dorm room that you have surprisingly come to love? These are the questions […]
