The other day, I went to a party. Okay, you got me, a small gathering of like ten people. And there were a few new people there, much to my displeasure, (I mean pleasure) and the host took it upon himself to introduce everyone. He rattled off names and token fixtures of each guest’s … Continue reading The Old Lady that Lives in my Brain

What do sovereign power, glitter, and cotton-candy pink all have in common? They are my three childhood obsessions. Well, that and baby-dolls, which I admit was weird. I mean, I don’t even like babies. But whatever. My interests have always been somewhat of an oddity. When I was a junior in high school, I painted … Continue reading Grunge and Glitter and Girls
Hey everyone! My roommate made me go with her to the library to study today. I thought I'd provide some of my positive, uplifting thoughts I had during my visit. Enjoy. It’s really cold in here. Will this be on the exam? I doubt it, but if I don’t take notes on it, twenty bucks it … Continue reading My Internal Monologue: Thoughts from the University Library
It’s here. It’s all-nighters, it’s textbooks, it’s blood, sweat, and tears. It’s realizing that there are a lot more people in your anatomy lecture than you ever guessed.
