Dear Ohio Weather

A rant to the moody Ohio weather

Dear Ohio Weather

Dear Ohio,

Can you please decide on what weather you would like to give us? It is very inconvenient when I try to wear a cute gray shirt to class and I show up looking like I walked through a sprinkler. I really don't like showing up to the third floor of Hollenbeck completely drenched in sweat.

Also, I have just given up on showering in the mornings. If it is any percent humid outside then I will arrive to class with sticky sweat coating my arms and all of my exposed skin. If my hair does not get thrown into a messy bun by the time I arrive to my destination, and it is still dripping down my back, then I might as well have not even gotten in the shower.

Those perfect days when we arrived to campus were just a tease. They were beautiful and I clearly did not take full advantage of them. Even some of the leaves started falling off the trees! Come on weather! Even your own creations are confused!

I thought that Kentucky weather was bipolar, but Ohio, you are a new level of moody. Snow in the morning with a 70-degree afternoon? Just Ohio things.

But Ohio, no matter how annoying your weather can be, you have given me my home. No matter how bad your weather is, I know I can tolerate it because the reward of my home is far greater.

Love, Bethany

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
