Behind the Uniform

I cried my first time catering at the college. It was during the rush of serving all the guests food. My eyes watery as I placed the food on the table and rushed back to my next task. It was a large banquet at the Campus Center dining room serving some formal dinner I can’t…

Take Time for Sunsets

I’m caught off guard with recent weather changes, in a good way. I’m happy that the sun is finally out (when it doesn’t rain because gotta love living in Midwest) and I’m starting to get a noticeable tan after being in the sun during a men’s lacrosse game this past Saturday. Being in the sun…

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)….

Entering the professional world

It is really weird to have once walked around in the halls of Kosair Children’s Hospital in a patient gown, then a volunteer t-shirt and now a suit and tie. I see several familiar faces and they comment on how professional I look and, in a way, that’s all well and good, but I miss…

A final hoorah

Dead week and finals week were a blur. I vaguely remember staying up late writing papers and reading through vocabulary terms, but for the most part, I was in some sort of trance that allowed me to fight through my senioritis. I think what helped me get through the week were taking scheduled fun breaks…

Marketing department update

The Marketing Department has given me a new task! Recently, I have been traveling around to different labs filming student and teacher interactions for a feature that we are doing for the science department. This is a long-term project that requires a lot of footage unlike my normal projects. The last feature I did was…
