Reasons Why You Should Go To Admitted Students Day

April 18th is approaching, and there are questions out there about Admitted Student Day, so I thought I would answer them for everyone! If you can’t make it, just remember that it’s completely OK! You won’t lose priority in choosing your roommates and it won’t put you “behind” by any means. What this day is […]

Here’s Why I’m Ready To Leave College.

Firstly, I would like to thank all of those who read my last blog post, “Things Seniors (STILL) Don’t Want To Hear.” It was a stunning success, and I appreciate all of your continual support and positive comments. This is why I love my job so much, being a student blogger and all. With that interjection […]

Things Seniors (STILL) Don’t Want To Hear

As of today, there are 34 days left until commencement (probably the first thing seniors do not want to hear). I feel as if college seniors get asked what their future plans are during the beginning and end of the school year. At the beginning of this academic year, I posted a blog title, “Things […]

I Found You at 5,000 Feet

We explored the world from a mile high. We free climbed giant rocks, learned to love like Jesus, met a professional fighter, obtained a free t-shirt, slept on air mattresses that didn’t inflate, took partially cold showers, and ate a lot of PB&J. We swept sidewalks, talked a lot, and learned the truth behind what […]

Job or No Job?

We All Fail

You read my title right, we all fail. I challenge you to say this phrase out loud three times before continuing reading this blog post. “I have failed.” It’s hard to admit. Even though we have so many successes, it is also important to recognize our failures. Without recognizing our failures, how will we be […]

It’s Past 1 AM, and I’m Overwhelmed – But Not in a Bad Way

It’s past 1 AM and I have an unfinished Research Synthesis paper due tomorrow at 11 AM. I’m sipping on half of a cup of cold coffee and have a Patagonia sweatshirt tied around my neck like a cape. I’m sitting in the sunroom of my cottage, which can hardly be called a sunroom at […]

My Valentine This Year Is Netflix

Valentine’s Day, or Singles Awareness Day, is a big “holiday” in retail America. From fancy dinner and drinks, to bearing one’s significant other with gifts of flowers, stuffed animals, and chocolate, February 14th has something to offer to everyone. Everyone? Yes, everyone, even if you’re single like this fella. So this year, I’m going to […]
