Open Letter to the Assignments I Haven't Started

Sorry. (Not Sorry)

Open Letter to the Assignments I Haven't Started
Lauren Mancke

I'm sorry.

I know you're due soon, but you see, I have so much on my plate right now and you have fallen to the back burner. I know you're important and I know I need to get a good grade... but sometimes sleep and hanging out with friends takes priority.

It's not you. It's me.

I would much rather go out with friends for a late night milkshake run than sit in the dorm working on you. (I have a feeling you would agree.) It's just a personal preference.

I know I spend too much time daydreaming about warmer weather. But you have to understand, you are so much more palatable when it's sunny and warm.

Listen to me when I say: yes, I will spend more time than I should out with friends, scrolling through social media, and watching Netflix, but I will make time for you before your due date.

You're important to me, never forget that. It's just that I don't always want to be working on you. I need a break from you every once and a while. But don't worry, we'll have plenty of time together the night before you're due. In fact, we'll have the whole night together (because you're worth about half of my grade.)

So, my dear assignments, I will make time for you eventually, but in the meantime trust that you hold a very small (like minuscule) piece of my heart.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
