Fall Semester in 500 Words

First off, I know you all have been anxiously awaiting my glorious return to the W&M blogosphere. I apologize for the long delay, but due to seventeen credits, an internship hunt and numerous on-campus commitments I have been beyond busy this semester. However, the wait is over because the kid is back! It’s been a

The Real World: Kansas City

“The Real World”. Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been warned about its terrors. How many times have I heard “You can’t be late in the real world,” or “People won’t be as nice in the real world” or “You can’t have pizza for every meal in the real world”. It’s a place

Good Morning W&M!

Happy Finals everyone! Due to the need to memorize 100 terms, several readings and three essays and a desire to watch a gut-wrenching 3OT loss by the Washington Capitals last night, I finished studying for my History of Christianity final a little later than expected. Also, with the need to review before my 9 a.m.

How to Beat The Stress: Williamsburg Edition

It’s that time of the semester yet again. Students are finishing up their last week of classes and nervously anticipating next week’s final exams.

It’s the time of year where everybody is concerned about what they know or, perhaps, what they don’t. It,

The Swem Survival Guide

Never has there been such a love-hate relationship than the one that every student at William & Mary shares with Earl Gregg Swem Library. Of course, we love the library itself. It’s a beautiful building with awesome resources. But the sheer number of hours one spends there add up…fast. There is certain Swem etiquette though.

William & Mary Athletics: Non-Varsity Edition

Like almost everybody, I was an avid athlete in high school, playing as many as three sports a year. When I came to college I also came with the illusion that my athletic career was behind me. Man, was I wrong. The College has incredible opportunities for students that aren’t varsity athletes to get involved

The Best Decisions I Have Ever Made (Part 2 of 2)

If you read my previous post, you already know that recently my friend and I were pondering the best decisions of our life. While my “best” decision came to me immediately, my “second best” took a while. First, I attempted to narrow it down. Because I wanted to choose a decision that was completely mine,
