The Eclipse

Written by    Aug 23, 2017

Was awesome, though that word is truly overused. Unfortunately, for us in Columbus, we only had a partial eclipse. And the difference between a partial eclipse and a total eclipse, even if that partial is 90%? It makes a big difference.

Written by    Aug 17, 2017

I can’t believe you’re going to be a freshman starting tomorrow—a lanyard-wearing, large-group-walking, too-loud-talking freshman.

My First Summer “Back” at Home: a Lesson

Summer. For most it’s a brief time full of sun, tanning, relaxing, and water in one or more of its many forms. Now, usually this applies to me as well, however…this summer was my first summer “back” at home after living at school all year, and I was not excited about it.

Written by    Jul 28, 2017

The title says it all. Some of the many things I didn’t do until my last year of college that I don’t understand why I didn’t do earlier: Gateway D-Tix: Ohio State has a program called Discount Tickets, or D-Tix.

Getting a Haircut

Written by    Jul 14, 2017

If you are like me, then you need a haircut about every five weeks to tame your thick, luscious mane.
