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”

Bucket listin’ and guest bloggin’
I’m strangely calm as the end of the semester approaches. Not only is it the end of the semester, but it’s the end of college. Forever. It only freaks me out if I think about it deeply. I still have some unfinished business left at St. Bonaventure University, and so I present to you “TheContinue reading “Bucket listin’ and guest bloggin’”
Is Facebook sexist? and Go Bonnies!
Hooray! The Lady Bonnies made it to the Sweet 16! St. Bonaventure (that’s my school) beat Marist 66-63 yesterday and they’re now moving on to play Notre Dame. I went to the Rathskeller (on-campus bar) last night to watch the game with other students and faculty, and there were a lot of media there. AsContinue reading “Is Facebook sexist? and Go Bonnies!”
New music and sunny skies
Just thought I’d take some time to mention that there are some cool things going on at my boyfriend’s blog, Kind of Bleu. He reviews new music from Beach House, Free Energy and s/s/s. You can listen to the tracks on his site. The new Beach House song has got me listening to their 2010Continue reading “New music and sunny skies”

Five days without Facebook
Every morning, I wake up, shower and sit down to my computer with a bowl of Frosted Shredded Wheat. I open three tabs in Google Chrome – Email, The Weather Channel’s website and Facebook. So naturally, when I decided to go five days with Facebook, it altered my morning routine. When my professor suggested theContinue reading “Five days without Facebook”
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.”
2. Practice doesn’t make perfect, but it works wonders.
When pondering things I learned this year, I started to think about how I’ve made playing piano a bigger part of my life. I’ve been taking lessons since third grade, and after graduating high school, I never thought I’d continue. Then I started taking lessons with Laura Peterson at St. Bonaventure. I’d practice for myContinue reading “2. Practice doesn’t make perfect, but it works wonders.”
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 launching the website ahead and creating graphics forContinue reading “1. A little competition is healthy and probably beneficial.”

The year’s winding down, and soon it’ll be time to make resolutions and look into the new year. But while riding my bike back from school today, I reflected on this year, and everything that I did and learned. Check out my list beneath the photo. I’ll be posting about them individually next week. AContinue reading “Things I learned this year”
