Democracy Awakening

I’ve been meaning to write about this on my blog since I got back twelve days ago, but with the end of semester rush to get work done and see friends before we all leave for the summer, I haven’t found the time. I did write about my experience in an opinion piece for the

Mississippi Burning

I’m back at it again with another opinion piece in our school newspaper, The Campus. This week, I wrote about the horrifying new law in Mississippi that is oppressive of LGBTQ+ rights and is a human rights violation in itself. It was published on Friday, which is when The Campus comes out every week. This

North Carolina and Trans Rights

This past Friday, I had my first opinion piece published in The Campus, our school newspaper. I was thrilled! It is about the recent legislation in North Carolina that has celebrities canceling concerts, major companies refusing to do business there, and generally receiving big heaping pile of well-deserved backlash. What’s the law about, you say?

Spring Fever

Spring has sprung at Allegheny College, although it really barely ever left. We had a relatively light winter this year, due to El Nino and some other weather patterns, which is quite different from my other two winters at Allegheny, both incredibly cold and snowy. This winter had multiple days in the 40s and even

Time Management

To some degree, I have gotten very good at scheduling myself and learning how to say no to things, or when to skip something for the purpose of self-care (eating, sleeping,

I have been involved in ASG for the last two years, and it is an organization that I am incredibly passionate about. I love being involved in so many different issues, and I love working with students directly to better their

Time Flies

Where does the time go? That’s the question I’ve been asking myself all week. How is it already the sixth week of classes? How am I a second semester junior? How has my birthday already come and gone? Time seems to be the object of my focus this week. Time is going by faster than I

Musical Musings

I love music. It flows through my veins. It’s in my head 24/7. I see music in everything and everyone. Speaking patterns, footsteps, doors closing and opening. To me, the rhythm of my heartbeat is music. My life is one big medley. My love of music goes beyond listening, although it’s rare to find me

Readjusting to Campus Life

Hello! With a new semester comes new adventures and new challenges. Now that I am back from study abroad, I have been getting back to my routine and readjusting to life on campus. I am very happy to be back at Allegheny, of course, but that doesn’t mean it is always easy to be here.

Dublin On My Mind

So during my vacation, I spent two non-consecutive nights in Dublin. One after my time in Belfast, and one before my flight home to the States. So although I wouldn’t have even one full day in Dublin, I tried to make the most out of my time here. My first night, I didn’t arrive until late
