Don’t Judge a Conductor by His Choir

If you're a frequent reader of my blogs (as I assume everyone is), you may have noticed that I'm a fan of campus events. I like to plan them, I like to attend them, I like to get free T-shirts from them . . . Recently, I attended a Brass Choir Concert. However, this was no ordinary brass[…]

Luck of the Irish

There is truly no greater feeling than being awarded a leadership position, having a checklist of accomplishments you hope the group can achieve in the coming year, and little by little getting to check off those accomplishments.

3 Differences Between Sophomore and Freshman Year

It has been way too long since I’ve last written a blog post. I am long overdue for some personal reflection. To begin, I cannot believe that it’s already October! I moved into my dorm on August 16th, for RA training, and since then, the days have just been flying by. In the past month[…]

School and Sports: 4 Ways They Can Coexist

                 Many people ask how it's possible to manage playing a high-level college sport while going to an equally renowned university. When you have practice every night, travel all over the US to places like Chicago, St. Louis, NYC, Boston, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and Cleveland, you would think that[…]

How NOT to be Nick Miller from New Girl

In this past week’s episode of Fox’s New Girl, titled “The Box,” we see the whole dark and ugly truth of Nick Miller’s abominable money management. For those who don’t watch the show, all you need to know about Nick Miller is that at 30-something, he is a bartender with no bank account and more[…]
