My massive senior project

Yo yo yo readers. Another day, another large sum of money going to Hanover College. Hope everyone has been well since my last blog. I had a pretty spectacular weekend — no homework, and it was even decent enough to go outside and hang out. I haven’t been doing a whole lot since our last…

Just a few study tips

As all the first-year students here have probably realized by now, in the five months since we’ve been students at Hanover College, it is a HUGE change from high school. Moving away from home, being away from family, meeting new people, learning how to live with new friends and making new friends can be a…

A few of my favorite things

One of the many things I liked about the holiday seasons was watching “Oprah’s Favorite Things.” In case you’ve never had the chance to watch the show, Oprah gave her audience a few of her own personal favorites – computers, appliances, cameras, clothes and even cars! If I had the opportunity to give an incoming…
