Hawaii Chi

It’s been super cold the past few weeks, and you can tell just by looking around at the different events on campus. When things get cold, people don’t want to leave their dorms and houses to walk across campus for events. What this leads to is a lack of attendance, so my fraternity brothers and…

State debate

If you read my blog frequently, or even once before this, you’ve probably heard me talk about a few things like a broken record. One of them is Sigma Chi, my fraternity at Hanover. The other is my experience on the speech and debate team in high school. I like to think that when I…

Hanover Freezes Over

Guys, it’s cold. Frigid. Hanover, during the past week, has basically frozen over. The polar vortex that most of the U.S. has been experiencing hasn’t had the common courtesy to pass over our little Hanover bubble. The cold has persisted for quite a while now. In fact, it started the first week that we came…

The busiest week of 2014

Two weeks in, but I’m calling it now. I will not have a busier week in 2014 than the week I am currently being barraged by right now. It’s 12:30 a.m., and I have been up all night doing work — not procrastinating, surprisingly. The funny thing about the work I’ve been doing is that it hasn’t…

Becoming president

Competitive debate was something I did well during high school, and I had a good shot at winning the state title my senior year, but a shot at a scholarship to the school of my dreams was more valuable to me. When I missed the state tournament to go interview for what could be a full…

Formal with friends and Thanksgiving alone

Kappa Alpha Theta held its semi-formal dinner/dance last weekend, and my girlfriend, Kaitlin, decided she wanted to take me as her date (who would have guessed??). Each year, most sororities on campus have two of these sort of events. One in the fall, which is their semi-formal, and one in the winter, which is their…

The ups and downs keep coming

There are times when you can try all you want, but you will still fail. You could be the best person in the world, and bad things would still happen to you; ask Job. You could stop caring entirely, and your whole world might hit an upswing. These are some things I’ve learned during my…

My semester winds down and I tense up

As the end of the semester approaches, my stress couldn’t be much higher. I mentioned a few posts back that I’m going through some rough stuff, but I’m doing my best to de-stress at every opportunity. How? I try to employ as many methods as possible. Volleyball: Two days each week, a bunch of friends…

Going bananas at the Halloween party

I love puns. I love puns so much that I wish I could marry them. Maybe I will one day when the country becomes liberal enough. Come on Obama, you’re killing me here. Allow me to give you a little bit of history on my Halloween experiences at Hanover. Year one. I never understood why…

A recap of my last two weeks

If you keep up with my blogging, you’ve probably noticed that the last few weeks have been silent on my end. The reason for this is that I’ve hit some pretty rough times, and frankly I just haven’t had the motivation to open up my laptop and blog. Don’t worry though, it’s not the end…
