A tiny rant

Why are you driving to class when it is less than a mile away? It is a beautiful day!!!! Why are you not thinking about your carbon footprint? Turn off your lights before you leave the house, leave your car in the parking lot, RECYCLE! Geez louise. I wrote this in the BV a fewContinue reading “A tiny rant”

I suppose I should explain…

… the reason for my recent posts on social media. I’m taking a class on Digital and Social Media, and we are required to blog every week. I wouldn’t normally blog about the Super Bowl (I hate most sports), but learning about how social media impacts everything is pretty neat. So now you know. EvenContinue reading “I suppose I should explain…”

5. Read leisurely to keep your sanity.

I never read books when I’m at school. I repeat, NEVER. But guess what I did this semester? I read. It felt so great. (It was also on my Resolution list from New Years.) Surprisingly, I finished a whole book on the piano. I was reading it for my research honors project for next semester.Continue reading “5. Read leisurely to keep your sanity.”

6. Never drink a Cosmo. Ever.

Long story short. I went to a benefit in New York where there was an open bar. I got a little too excited to try drinks I had never tried before. I thought Cosmos were supposed to be classy. Don’t they drink them on “Sex and the City”? Little did I know the contents ofContinue reading “6. Never drink a Cosmo. Ever.”

4. Writing can be fun when you take your time.

When I was features editor for The BV, I usually wrote things when we needed a space to fill. But since I’ve been working promotions, I’ve could take more time on my pieces. Here are the stories I wrote this semester. (Not a lot, I’m sorry to say.) Click on the photos to read them.Continue reading “4. Writing can be fun when you take your time.”

3. I will never know heat extremes like I know them in New York State.

My limbs were splayed out to all sides, my right leg hanging off the bed. I wouldn’t let my fingers touch; they’d get too sweaty and stick together. I had gathered my hair in a bun at the top of my head. Despite living in a triple, I had next to nothing on. These wereContinue reading “3. I will never know heat extremes like I know them in New York State.”

Reflecting on this year (and not studying very hard)

It was the Fourth of July in New York City. I was moping around my room and pissed that I didn’t have plans and that I wasn’t with my boyfriend, so I just decided to sleep. I was on the second hour of my nap when my roommates came back to our dorm room. IContinue reading “Reflecting on this year (and not studying very hard)”

1. A little competition is healthy and probably beneficial.

About two years ago, a student transferred to St. Bonaventure. He came down to The BV with a huge portfolio of photos and clippings. We were impressed, and the editors encouraged him to join the staff. He did and soon became online editor. He was passionate about ┬álaunching the website ahead and creating graphics forContinue reading “1. A little competition is healthy and probably beneficial.”
