What your St. Bonaventure major means

I’ve seen a few lists like this in other publications, so I decided to make a version for St. Bonaventure University. Please take no offense, for it is all in good fun.   English: We’ve heard you bickering about the romantic poeticism of William Wordsworth vs. Alfred Tennyson. You write cryptic prose to see ifContinue reading “What your St. Bonaventure major means”

Who do you say hi to on the Ho Chi Minh?

I think it’s so strange to walk by someone you used to be friends with and not acknowledge them. Today, I walked  past a girl I used to hang out with a lot freshman year. I smiled at her, but she just kept looking forward! We never had a falling out. We never even fought.Continue reading “Who do you say hi to on the Ho Chi Minh?”

I love reading blogs

Bloglovin’ is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. It puts all my blogs in one place so I don’t have to go hunting them down. On the other hand, it’s a huge distraction, because it makes it so easy for me to read blog posts all day. Now that I’m done with myContinue reading “I love reading blogs”

Radio show

I’m going to be on WSBU from 5:15 p.m. to 7 p.m. today. My friend Meaghan and I have a show at this time every Monday on The Buzz, our college radio station.  We like playing a bunch of female singer/songwriters and mixing in old favorites and new digs. Here’s how you listen: Click this,Continue reading “Radio show”

Music that makes me feel

I’ve been listening to music in headphones when I walk to class lately, and what a difference! I feel so much more involved with the music. The whole practice of walking with music isn’t new to me, but I haven’t been using my iPod because I wanted to be aware of my surroundings. With myContinue reading “Music that makes me feel”

We’re the campus media. We’re students.

This is an editorial I wrote last month, intending to publish it in The BV. I never submitted it because I didn’t want to cause trouble with the unnamed professor, my adviser. However, I still feel the same way, so I decided to publish this for a smaller audience — my blog readers. Sure, atContinue reading “We’re the campus media. We’re students.”

Real life is fast approaching

I was talking to a few friends, alumni and coworkers at a journalism luncheon yesterday when the topic of life after college came up. “Life after college” would always be my answer when someone asked me my greatest fear. But when I was listing off the publications at which I was applying for internships, IContinue reading “Real life is fast approaching”

Five reasons why I actually miss Olean, N.Y.

This article I wrote was previously published in The Times Herald a few weeks ago. Enjoy! The Statue of Liberty is small. In fact, while sitting in the passenger seat of my friend’s Mercury Gran Marquis, driving into Manhattan, I felt like I could reach out and pinch her with my index and thumb.  Continue reading “Five reasons why I actually miss Olean, N.Y.”

A weekend with Meaghan

     Meaghan rode in during my lunch break Thursday, the beginning of a great weekend.      She explored Times Square quite extensively and tempted herself with American Eagle while I finished my workday. Then, we jetted back to Brittany Hall on the subway, grabbed pizza at the dining hall and power walked downContinue reading “A weekend with Meaghan”
