Looking Back, Moving Forward

I am halfway done with college, and have taken some time to reflect on the experiences of these last two years. My freshman and sophomore years have pushed and moved me in ways I couldn’t have imagined when I made the decision to come to William & Mary a little over two years ago. 635

That may sound a little apocalyptic, but I’m getting down to the two-week mark left in my college career, so forgive me. We’ve just finished our last week of classes, which usually is a happy moment, and this year it was happy but also tinged with nostalgia. “This is the last time I’m going to

Going Green…and Gold

Green has been a pretty popular color as of late. Some people “go green” to help the environment and spread awareness of how harmful our actions can be to our gentle planet. Others celebrate their Irish heritage by dyeing their town river green and wearing shamrock hats on St. Patrick’s Day. Some people just want




My Unicorn Song

The first song I learned is called the Unicorn Song. For anyone that’s heard it, you know what I’m talking about…the one with the green alligators and long-necked geese. Until I was about 14, I thought it was just a fun children’s song about unicorns…then I listened to the words. And now I know why
