Basketball Fever

Well, it’s officially started….basketball season! I just got back from the Barton vs. Mount Olive game. I was never a big basketball person, and I still don’t really understand all the rules or what’s happening most of the time.  My biggest cue to begin cheering is when everyone around me starts to.  But tonight, even …

True Life: I Get Along With My Roommate

I knew coming to college meant having a roommate. The surprising thing was that I was actually kind of excited. My mildly antisocial self had never lived with anyone before. This would be a new experience. During the orientation weekend, I meet a girl who seemed pretty cool. She was an artist like me (though …

The Big Switch (Part 1)

It was really hard for me to begin the process of applying to colleges. I had my little list. Princeton was up there with Old Dominion, East Carolina, and NC State. I talked about going to college all the time, about who I wanted to be, what I wanted to do, and how I would …

Why Are There No Songs For Turkey Day?

“When are you going home,” has been the most important question for the past couple days. Today has been the last day of class and, in just a couple of hours, I’ll be headed home for Thanksgiving break. Thanksgiving is always such an overlooked holiday in the ranking of holidays. People always seem to jump …
