A Letter For My First-Year Friends

I don't know what I would have done without you.

A Letter For My First-Year Friends
Bryant University

The friends you gain during your freshman year of college will be among your most cherished thus far in your life. College comes with many adjustments, but you and your friends will be going through all the crazy changes at the same time. Whether you're stressing about the first days of classes, finals, who you are going to sit with in the cafeteria, roommate issues, or boy troubles, chances are they are going through some of the same difficulties. I am very thankful for the friends I had by my side during my first year of college.

Throughout the summer I have definitely missed my college girls. Part of me wishes I was returning to Bryant to make many more memories with them, but unfortunately, that is not how my story goes.

Since I won't be returning alongside my girls this semester, I wanted to thank them for everything during freshman year. I honestly would not have made it through my first year of college without those ladies.

So, Thank you for..

1. Being welcoming

2. Joining me at the gym

3. Getting me through the dreaded Global Foundations of Business (GFOB)

4. Sharing in my love for the "Bachelorette" and "Grey's Anatomy"

5. Allowing me to vent to you

6. Jumping on trampolines like we are still in elementary school

7. The countless laughs

8. Late night snack runs at the scoop

9. Making second semester better than the first

10. Supporting and understanding my choices

11. Dinner dates

12. Going on Target runs

13. Helping me clean off my car after a snow storm

14. Singing along in the car

15. Not letting me go prom dress shopping alone

16. Stressing over finals together

17. Sharing your food

18. Carrying groceries to the fourth floor

19. Getting me out of my room

20. Making me come with you to pet the therapy dogs

21. Making study sessions more bearable

22. Peer editing the countless papers

23. Surviving group projects together

24. Always giving me someone to eat lunch and dinner with

25. All the Bryant@Night memories

26. Standing with me when the fire alarm goes off... every weekend...

27. Encouraging me to go to sporting events

28. Making the worst of classes less torturous

29. Sharing in the long distance relationship troubles

30. The endless advice

31. Walking to class with me

32. Summer visit

33. Always complimenting my clothes

34. Helping me move out

35. Convincing me to go to the spring concert

But, if I had to sum all those things up. Thank you for simply being there and being incredible, caring people. During one of the most stressful points in life to date, you girls made it all a lot easier. The first year would have been very different without every one of you. I'm very grateful to have met all of you, no matter how much fun I have this school year, I won't forget my first-year friends.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and as you girls return for sophomore year, I wish you the best of luck. Eat some Salmo sugar cookies for me and stay clear of guys like Chad. I'll see you soon ladies!

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.

To The Classes That Follow
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.
