Home is Whenever I’m With You

About a week ago I met some really cool people. And they’re freshmen. Like, wut? Freshmen? I’m a senior! And then I meet these really cool people and come to the conclusion that I’m FINALLY doing college right. I wish I was as cool as they are now when I first came to Hanover over…

Going to (field) camp

This past weekend, I had my first field camp experience with my marine and terrestrial ecology class. We spent two nights at Kiola Field Camp and had three days chocked full of biological tests and learning. I know that doesn’t sound very fun, but it was actually a blast. We ran three experiments: one on…

I have been with the organization Best Buddies for more than eight years now. Best Buddies is a program based on building friendships between individuals and individuals with intellectual/developmental disorders (IDD). That is right.

The generic, yet inevitable, rejection email

Rejection. It happens to everyone. Some people are rejected by their crush, sometimes you reject a phone call from your parents, sometimes you are rejected by an organization for that internship you really wanted. Regardless, rejection sucks no matter what! These past three years I have been blessed with so many different experiences to work…

Job hunting is a full-time job

I’ve been hearing a lot lately that searching for a job is a full-time job in itself, which I am starting to find is very true. I only have two classes (one a day) along with organizing the 2014 V-Day event and track practice. I thought that I would be able to find time with…

You Have No Obligation

I recently woke up from my Thanksgiving dinner comatose and had a ton of fleeting thoughts come to mind. I have been so stuck on the question “What am I doing after graduation?” It bothers me daily and as the year progresses and I get closer to graduation the less confident of things I become….

#SeniorStatus

I kind of love being a senior. There are a lot of perks that I don’t think I really noticed before as an underclassman, but now they are all coming to fruition. To make this a little easier I am just going to list a few of the things that I have really enjoyed about…
