I wouldn’t say I’m the most social media-savvy teen. I don’t have a Twitter, I don’t post on my Facebook, and I didn’t make an Instagram until the summer of 2015. I do use Snapchat, because I enjoy the casual vibe of the app. On Snapchat I can make dumb jokes and post silly videos […]

I, like many people, am a fan of online shopping. There’s more variety, it takes less time and most importantly, I don’t actually have to put on shoes and go outside. So every year after Thanksgiving, after everyone has packed up their leftovers and said their goodbyes, I don’t get excited about Black Friday. I […]

Dear Short People, It’s come to my attention that a “Dear Tall People” letter was also published today (if you haven’t seen it you can read it here). Now, as a tall person myself, I can confidently say that short people don’t know how good they have it. Yes, we can reach the cans on […]

Family and Friends Weekend is almost upon us and if you’re anything like me, you want to use this as a reason to finally get off campus, but you don’t have a clue what to do. Luckily, I went and did some research on exciting activities taking place this weekend. So without further ado, here […]

This past July, when housing assignments came out, I learned that I would be living in a quad. Full disclosure: I wasn’t super excited at first. I mean, I didn’t hate the idea, but living in a double was so ingrained into my fantasy of what freshman year would be like. Well that, and the […]
