Introducing The Fishie Bois
Kimberly Lawton

It was obvious from the first night the Fishie Bois came home that they were all extremely unique individuals. When we were initially picking out our fish we had specific criteria. First and foremost they must be colorful. Secondly and nearly as important as being able to have more than one fish in the tank. The ultimate goal was to be able to see the fish from anywhere in the room and to ensure that they had enough company to socialize and be happy. When you have one fish in a tank it is important to keep them mentally stimulated otherwise there is a high chance of them becoming depressed. The last thing we wanted was depressed fish, therefore, we knew from the get-go we had to size our fish to our tank to allow for at least two.

Charlie (Charles)

Kimberly Lawton

Charlie has the most personality in the tank. He loves to chase his own reflection as well as the other fish in the tank. He has also been known to run into the side of the tank from time to time. Most games of tag he initiates and sometimes he starts "King of the Hill" by accident more than anything else.

Darwin is just Darwin. He is an extremely neutral Fishie Boy. He will play or just chill. He doesn't do much besides go with the flow.

Lewis is perhaps the shyest of the Fishie Bois, he likes to stay in the all grass at the back of the tank. Most times he swimming back and forth slowly through the grass. It is reminiscent of Marlin teaching Nemo how to exit the anemone in the morning.


Kimberly Lawton

Although he is the smallest of the Fishie Bois he is by far the most powerful. He is a ring leader of sorts and loves to be in control. His favorite game is "King of the Tank."

We absolutely love having our Fishy Bois and have the best of times watching them zoom around the tank. Some of their favorite group activities besides eating together at meals include playing tag, "king of the tank", and "this is my spot." Tag is pretty self-explanatory, its every fish for themselves until all the Fishie Bois are tuckered out. "King of the Tank" is more Clark and Charlie's favorite game because at various times they chase the other Fishie Bois to one side of the tank or the other. Charlie is more likely to back down and let everyone on to "his" side of the tank, Clark, on the other hand, loves to maintain control over as much of the tank as possible for as long as possible. "This is my spot" normally is played by Lewis and Clark who will pick a spot on either side of the tank and just stay there.

Fishy Boy Update:

They have started swimming as a school and it is the most amazing event to date. Although games of tag are still common, the Fishy Boys have become s much more unified group of explorers. They now rule the tank together, following Charlie. That was the most surprising part of this new development. No one expected Charliee to end up leading the group but he seems to be doing a great job thus far.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
