Poetry on Odyssey: Moonlight on the Piano

A poem on the dependability of light after dark and at the end of the tunnel, even in something as simple as the moon.

It's a beautiful sight to know,

The keys and how they would glow,

Under the light of the moon,

Not a second too soon,

The moonlight on the piano.


But, the moon being full was the key,

So at the new moon, she would plea

For the sun, since at night

There would be no more light,

And the piano she couldn't see.


But, before she could lose all her hope,

In the dark sky there'd be a white slope,

And the moon was a curve

With light that she observed

On two keys and the piano's oak.


And, when the moon grew she would weep,

And thank the gods under her feet,

For she found without fail,

The full moon would prevail,

And the piano now was complete.


It's a beautiful sight to see,

The piano, it's glowing keys,

And the light of the moon

Shining all through the room,

Yet the brightest thing there is she.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
