TVR

By | Sep 28, 2010

With a week of the fall TV season under its belt, I sat in bed on Saturday and watched a lot of it with a friend. “I should be doing homework,” I said, hour three into it. “Isn’t this your homework?” she asked, because I am a television-radio major. “No, but I mean, we do…


Double Standards

By | Sep 26, 2010

I was reading about black-feminists for a class, and it got me thinking about double standards. There are many double standards in society, around women and men and what not. But one of the biggest in college is one that I partake in everyday. I had a long Friday night, and Saturday I ended up…


Dish Duty

By | Sep 23, 2010

The SGA question of the week this Wednesday was “When you were younger, what was your dream job?” It got me thinking. Jobs have been on my mind a lot lately, in fact earlier that night I had applied to work at Maxie’s Supper Club. “Hi, I saw an ad on Craig’s List that you…


Different Styles of TV

By | Sep 22, 2010

It was 9:30 p.m. on a Monday night when I finally made it to the gym. I stepped on the elliptical, and turned on the TV. Flipping through channels, I decided to watch Family Guy. It was my favorite episode—where Lois teaches Sex Ed at Meg’s school—so I literally had to stop working out at…


Homework Confusion

By | Sep 15, 2010

In high school we had syllabi. I got it the first day of class, threw it out, and went on with the year. In college, not so much. Classes and professors live by those syllabi.  We might be getting something assigned every night, but are still expected to check the syllabus and read whatever that…


AIDS Ride for Life

By | Sep 12, 2010

Who knew that riding 100 miles would be tough? As we came up to a hill, I had been keeping up with my friends—all of whom are noticeably in better shape than me or at least have done the ride before—for the past few miles. “I’ll see you guys in 13 miles,” I said, not…


Rugby

By | Sep 9, 2010

Strictly stereotypically speaking, rugby is for girls tougher than my five-foot-three-inch self. But in reality, players are all different sizes. At least I like to think so. I’ve only ever once seen it played, and it may or may not have only been for about 30 seconds. Minor details. I have wanted to do rugby,…


Party in the USA

By | Sep 8, 2010

Sometimes I like staying in on a weekend night, because I can get a lot of work done. But then I go out and remember how much better it is. Lesson Three: Go out on the weekends, that’s why they’re there. Example: Labor Day weekend. With some of my favorite alumni in town, I headed…


Where did the vacation part of summer go?

By | Sep 3, 2010

I think summer stopped being a break when school was no longer free. Entering college, I had all these plans to have fun and be carefree. I quickly learned that my dear parents couldn’t “pay this month’s loans just this one time,” for me forever. No college is cheap. So, like most people, I got…


Syllabus Week

By | Sep 3, 2010

It was the Thursday of Syllabus Week, and like most college students, all my roommates were out. I was sitting on the floor of my room doing work and debating making a bowl of grits. Checking my e-mail, I came across one that started out saying, “Stop worrying so much and go out and join…


Bike-Walking

By | May 4, 2010

Earlier today, Will and I went on a bike ride to Lowes Home Improvement to pick up some gold spray paint. “They have it at Lowes?” Will asked. “Yeah, I got pink the other day,” I said. I really like spray paint. The bike ride down was fine, because it was literally all down hill.…


CatDog

By | Apr 25, 2010

What would you do for a Bop It and season one of the TV show, Doug? I would get on my hands and knees and make a low-budget rendition of CatDog, that’s what I would do. And did. Will and I are the proud winners of Ithaca College’s IC After Dark event, Forever Young. The…
