A Lot Can Change in a Year

12.14.2011
2010 vs. 2011   Then: We couldn’t get “Billionaire” by Travis McCoy out of our heads. Now: We all wish we could sing “Someone Like You” as good as Adele.   Then: Bieber still had his marvelous swoopy hair. Now: Bieber is rocking the shorter hair but is still as dreamy as ever. Hate all […]

Is it really the end of first semester?

12.6.2011
December 2011 As I sit here typing this blog, there are tasks on my agenda going undone. “Small” tasks such as practicing my presentation for the oral part of my Arabic final (due Tuesday…I’ve got time!), or working on the 2,000 word section of my final portfolio for English (due Wednesday night…even more time!), or […]

Once Upon a Time…

11.17.2011
Once upon a time… I had my mind made up on where I wanted to go to school. I don’t know if I’m allowed to tell you which school I wanted to go to, but just know that HPU wasn’t exactly my first choice. In fact, I’d never even heard of HPU. This was all […]

Crunch Time

11.8.2011
I’ve finally found it. The holy grail of study locations. After many trials and much deliberation, I have discovered that my productivity is optimized when I park myself at a table on the third floor of Smith Library.   Now, in high school, I could pretty much work wherever I wanted and get by just […]

Application time like NEVER BEFORE.

10.26.2011
It’s happening. We’ve known it was coming for years, but somehow it still takes me by surprise that this is it. Back in 2006, I toured High Point University as a prospective student. I remember sitting in Wrenn Hall speaking with Allen Jones, one of the HPU Admissions Counselors. He told me that this little […]
