The Secret Cafe

Written by    Mar 13, 2018

If you ever find yourself needing a break from campus food but not actually wanting to go off campus, would it even surprise you if I said Ohio State has the perfect place for that? The Heirloom Cafe is located in the basement of the Wexner Center for the Arts, right next to the Oval. Because it’s not a campus-run restaurant, and because it’s located […]

The Hammocks Are Back!

Written by    Mar 12, 2018

No Ohio State student is quite sure why the second semester is referred to as the “spring” semester. We bundle up for class every morning with a puffy coat, scarf, gloves, and a hat for the trek to class in half a foot of snow. We proceed spend the day taking that coat off and putting it back on again about half a billion times […]

Clothes: High school vs. College

Written by    Mar 12, 2018

High School: I wore makeup every day Either straightened or curled my hair every day Even wore DRESSES My “lazy” outfit was a sweater and jeans Would never DREAM of wearing (gasp) running shoes/sneakers during the school day Constantly critical of the way I looked, very self-conscious Cared way too much about what others thought of the way I looked College: I’ve worn the same […]

Bouncing back from a bad grade

Written by    Mar 12, 2018

I’m like a lot of other OSU students: straight A’s in high school, top of the class, perfectionist, etc etc. So naturally, I got to college and told myself I wasn’t going to change that. I set the same painfully high standards for myself as I did for the last four years of education. I thought it would be just as simple in college as […]

My life plan is…

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

“So, what do you want to do with your life?” As college students, we’ve all been asked this question at one point or another. You might have your entire life planned out and know exactly the job you want to have when you graduate, where you’re going to live, who you’ll marry, how many kids you’ll have, and their names (okay, maybe that’s a bit […]

The Future

Prioritizing

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

One of the aspects of college life that I’ve struggled with most lately has been prioritizing. By this, I mean deciding what tasks and activities are important enough to actually be included in my daily agenda (because there’s no possible way to fit everything that I want to accomplish into a single day). Lately, homework and sleep have been my priorities; homework for obvious reasons, […]

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 […]

Gravity Check

Written by    Mar 8, 2018

The last few weeks, I did something I tended to avoid during my time in high school: I trained and took part in an athletic competition. Something that would surprise my past self even more is how much I enjoyed it. Unlike other competitions, this one wasn’t based on covering a distance in the shortest time possible, lifting weights, or scoring more goals than a […]

Branching out in college

Written by    Mar 8, 2018

I’m not an adventurous person. Heck, I’m not even a social person. I didn’t really want to join any clubs or participate in any activities. I always felt like clubs and sports of the sort were pointless obligations and I never understood why people get involved. And then I decided to branch out and try new things. It started with just a trip to the ARC: […]
