7 Syracuse Students Reflect On Their Weekends

With the school year slowing down, I always think about how much I will miss the weekends here. They make weekends at home look less than entertaining and is something that I will look forward to coming back to in the summer.

1. Sage O

"What I like most about the weekends is hanging out with my friends (whether it's watching movies, dinner, or just talking) it's my favorite thing to do. I like it the most because I don't have to worry about school nights or doing my homework right away. It's just time to chill with my girls"

2. Karen C

"Weekends at Syracuse are incredibly exciting. When you're out, you get to see so many people that you cannot see during the week. I like to consider myself to be a "work hard, play hard" kinda girl so for the weekends I devote this time to myself to have fun and let loose, while during the week I work hard. The weekend is my reward so I always look forward to it"

3. Kathryn W

"It's a time to de-stress and spend time with your friends. As well and get away from campus. There are so many options from going to the mall and seeing a movie or having a nice dinner at armory square"

4. Kristen B

"During the week I'm always going and going and my room and everything gets so messy and I'm always so stressed but on the weekends I can clean, get organized, not think about school, and have fun with friends:)"

5. Harrison T

"Welcome to Friday. In preparation for takeoff, please ensure all negative attitudes are properly stowed. On behalf of your captain, Jack Daniels and myself, welcome aboard. I expect sunshine and good attitudes today for our trip. Enjoy the ride."

6. Anna P

"My weekends always start at 12:35 p.m. on Friday. I walk back to my dorm and meet up with my roommate so we can go get some food. Usually walking back from class I call my mom and just catch up with her on what going on in both my and her life.

Then I usually just sit and chill. I clean up my room and watch some Netflix, which is something that I never have time to go during the week. At night I typically now go out with my sorority sisters! We go to our party's and always have the most fun ever!!!

Saturday morning I always meet up with 3 of my really good friends and we go to Starbucks and just hang out there for a little, talk and drink some coffee. Saturday during the day I either start my homework for the weekend or I run any errands that I could possibly need to do.

Then Saturday night is kind of a repeat of Friday night, go out with my sisters have the time of our lives!!! And finally, Sunday hits and I genuinely do homework all day and stop for some food breaks."

7. Jake R

"A typical weekend here at Syracuse for me always starts on Thursday night. The reasoning is that I haven't had a Friday class here at Syracuse since first semester freshman year. Thursday after class, I will sometimes go get food with friends or to make food at my apartment.

Thursday night I'll watch sports games on TV before going to the bar or a party. When I'm out I enjoy dancing and hanging out with my friends and girlfriend. On rare occasion here at Syracuse, the sun decides to come out, which makes for a great day for golf at drummers.

Out on the course we may or may not purchase a golf cart in order to relax. I usually try to make friendly bets with my friends throughout the match. Once we finish up the round we usually all go home and take our respective showers, only to meet up an hour later and go out that night.

Saturdays are basically the same thing as Fridays, with the late wakeup time and relaxation. Usually I'll hang out at my apartment watching TV until mid-afternoon and then start to get my work done that is due that week"

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
