Bloody, But Unbowed

Hi, It’s certainly been a while huh? Yeah. I haven’t been posting on my blog in the last couple of months. The reason for this is quite simple. I simply haven’t been managing my time well enough. I think – or maybe used to think, I’m still not sure myself – that I have the

Tables and Tops

Hello again! Now that I’m back, I wanted to post about something that’s very near and dear to my heart. Tabletop gaming. During my junior year in high school I started to discover the joy of table top RPGs. For those who are not familiar, these are games like Dungeons and Dragons, Call of Cthulhu,

So…being sick is (not) fun

Hi everybody! So, I haven’t posted in like a month. Yeah. It’s been a while. The reason for this long absence is, unfortunately, health related. Now, it isn’t anything too serious, but for the past month or so I’ve had some form sickness, with nausea and fevers coming and going throughout the weeks. I focused

Gator Day!

Hello Again! It’s been a while since my last post, and I’ll explain exactly why that is in the future. For now, I’d like to focus on Gator Day. The week leading up to Gator Day, everyone was excited. Everywhere I went people were telling me about Gator Day. Teachers, students, everyone was talking about

Sleeping In…

The Spirit Is Willing, But The Flesh Is Weak

So today I just wanted to make a quick blog post about something that I have never done in all my 18 years on this fine earth. Conditioning. Now, I’m going to be honest. I am not in good shape. I have not been in good shape for a long, long time. So, when the

Ultimate!

So in my last post I talked about some of the clubs I was in, and I wanted to talk about the club I’ve invested most of my time in here at Allegheny. So, what exactly is Ultimate? Ultimate (or Ultimate Frisbee) is a non contact sport played with a disc, similar to football and

The story so far…

I decided that it would probably be a good idea to blog about what the first few weeks at Allegheny were like. I’m doing this because it’s something I think a lot of prospective students wonder about, but never really find out until they experience it for themselves. While my experience will be centered around

Why Allegheny?

Hello again! I missed my post on Monday (still getting used to the schedule :P) so that will be going up on Saturday, but for now I want to address the question “Why Allegheny?” All of the students here have been asked this at one point or another, and for each and every one of
