Dear Freshman Year,

Thanks for helping me.

Dear Freshman Year,
Deanna Jacopino

With freshman year over, I've found myself reminiscing more than I ever have before. Freshman year has a weird way of changing people whether it be for better or worse. I'm lucky to say that my freshman year has definitely changed me for the better! I still can't believe that freshman year is over because it feels like just yesterday I was finishing my senior year of high school. It's true what they say, college really does go by like the snap of your fingers. So please, Time, slow down.

Not going to lie, freshman year wasn't always easy. It had its ups and it definitely had its downs, but I guess that is all part of the process. Back in August, I was pretty scared to start all over again at a new place. Little did I know that the second I began college my life would change forever.

During this past year, I was able to figure out who I am and who I want to be as a person. I was able to commit myself to my school work, make many new friends and even lose some people along the way. Every situation this year good or bad has helped me figure out who I am and who I want to be. So if you're reading this and you were a part of it, thank you. All of this has shaped me into the person I have always dreamed of becoming.

This past year has been a journey I know I will always remember. So finally, thank you, freshman year, for teaching me so many valuable lessons and bringing so many amazing people into my life. You will be missed terribly, but as the saying goes; "On to the next one." See you in the fall sophomore year!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
