Final remarks from a four-year columnist

The strange yet fascinating thing about life is that you can’t really plan it. It just, happens. And as I sit here writing to you one last time, one week away from graduation, I want you to know that that is a constant throughout our entire lives.

I think when you make it to your last semester of college, you never truly think about it until the last few weeks of class, when you are figuring out ways to straighten out your cap and gown, what in your apartment is ready to be packed up and hauled away, and when you can count your major assignments left in college on one hand.

Some textbooks have become obsolete

Earlier this week I successfully did something many college students only wish they could successfully do: I opened a textbook, and I read it.

‘The Dress’ breaks the internet

Late last week, while you were performing in concerts, playing sports games, and scrambling to finish a big assignment before the end of the week, the internet was exploding. Not over budget cuts, not over the threat of terrorism, but over a dress, or, “The Dress.”

Pointless Valentine’s Day shouldn’t exist

Everyone is abuzz this week with holiday fever, and the end of this week is Valentine’s Day, or in my opinion, the day to stay home and hide from the world.

Thanksgiving brings thoughts on overlooked details

Finally, after two long months of classes, exams and papers, we will be allowed a break. Thanksgiving is coming fast and is already next week. While it is important to realize that the holiday is to commemorate pilgrims coming to the U.S. to escape religious persecution, it is also one to realize that things and people you have in your life.
