Here's what my life was like last week: I had a bad sore throat and could not get any rest, partly because of noisy housemates and partly because of school anxieties. To make matters worse, this was the middle of Halloween week, so any chance of me getting a good night's sleep suddenly went out the window. ...

Being sick is annoying, especially with the pressure to not miss school. As I write, I have a sore throat and a cough. It hasn’t developed into a full-blown fever, but that is usually how it starts. I try my best to keep myself from getting sick, but with flu season starting up I guess it was inevit...

Being in a serious committed relationship during college doesn’t seem fun or exciting, I know. Especially when popular wisdom dictates that college is a time to have fun and let loose before you have to start looking for the more major things in life, like a job and a wife. But let’s be realistic. We aren’t ge...

We all get lonely. There’s no shame in that. Sometimes you get blue and you can’t explain it or figure out why you are feeling like you do. Sometimes you get blue and you are simply lost in that emotion. It comes from left field and sucker punches you right in the gut, leaving you unable to go ...
