Welcoming Winter Break

It just became winter break here at Hanover, and I cannot lie and say it wasn’t needed, because it was. Always around week seven-eight, the stress and workload becomes very high. I know that this past week, I had three tests, a paper and more than 100 pages of reading to do for my classes….

Think outside the box

For one of my Hanover College elementary education classes, I did an author study. This means I researched a children’s author, presented the information to my class, told them about the author and discussed the types of books he/she has written. For my author study, I chose Barbara Park (a.k.a. one of my all-time favorite authors). I absolutely…

Let’s go clubbing!

Even though break was relaxing, I missed all the activities that usually happens on campus. More specifically, I missed going to all the meetings. I know, I’m a weirdo. You’re probably thinking, “Who the *curse* likes meetings?” Well, I like club meetings/gatherings. I love to plan events. I love the ideas. I love the creative…

The relief of seeing Winter Break on my calendar

As I looked at my calendar, I thought to myself, “Yay! One week till Winter Break!” Winter break is an entire week off from classes.  I’m excited about it because of the stressful weeks I have been having. Between classes, athletics and a social life, college gets a little overwhelming sometimes (as we all know)….

Zombie Week

My friends/readers, I am sorry, but this is not going to be a very long rant about my life today. Actually, this post will consist of a lot of complaining, and just know that while I was writing this I was most likely crying. It is that time of the year: finals. I don’t really…

Oh yes, even at a little liberal arts college like Hanover there lives an unhealthy obsession for “The Hunger Games.” And I am someone who struggles to deal with the obsession. I picked up the first book in the series a few weeks ago during break and was pleasantly surprised. The book was amazing. I…

Interested in Pinterest

I will be the first to admit that sometimes I get distracted. Not often, though. I am usually extremely focused on my homework and have about a million lists or the things I want to accomplish. But every once in a while, especially on the weekends or between projects, you need to take a minute…

My Break in Pictures… Instead of 1000 Words

As I’ve spent the majority of my Thanksgiving “break” at home typing furiously away at my Independent Study, I thought I’d give you a synopsis of my break in pictures! (Saves me the trouble of MORE typing… and they say they’re each worth 1000 words!) And now it’s back to Hanover… Hope everyone had a relaxing…

A Penchant for Wizardry

To most, waiting five hours in line for a movie does not sound like an exceptionally spectacular use of time. Luckily, I am not like most people. Aside from my incessant love of movies (ask my roommate, Kat Rompf, about the  excessive amount of movies in our room… and my rental sheet where I make…
