The Ten Things You Miss While On Break

I gotta admit, breaks are nice. You get to see your family and friends and not the mention the free food! You don’t have to worry about homework and you can basically relax, right? Well most of the time. As much as you love those days spent with your family and reminiscing over old memories, there are always things that you miss from being at college. So. Counting down.

10. The Caf- You’d be lying if you didn’t miss those wonderful sandwiches made by Miss June, or the out of this world brunch by Willie. Also, just being able to have variety every day is always naps.

9. Taking Naps- Sure, you can take naps over break, but they are briefly interrupted by siblings and your work schedule.

8. Being Active- I’m not someone who remembers to be active. ESPECIALLY on breaks. But when you have to walk everywhere on campus, take two dance classes and there is gym right across from you, its not hard to stay active and feel great.

7. Wearing Whatever You Want- No more pretending you have your life together back home because at school, if you feel like wearing your sweatpants to class, you sure as hell can!

6. Not Having To Work Around Others Schedule- At school its all you all the time. You don’t need to worry about who's gonna borrow the car at this time and who is gonna take billy to baseball.

5. Jumping Out of Your Comfort Zone- If there's one thing I can say about college it that its all about taking risks. Whether inside or outside of the classroom there will always be opportunities to hop outside of the box.

4. Being Independent- WOOT WOOT! Just saying that you are independent feels great and actually being independent is awesome too! (Once you figure out how to actually budget your money)

3. Having Routine- This one is YUUUUGEE for me. Having a schedule you can always rely on day to day really does make a difference and its nice to get back into that after a month of having little to no control.

2. Always Having Something To Do- You have tons of friends and even if they are too busy to hang out in your dorm you can go to the dorm lobbies, Alvins, the quad, really anywhere, and strike up a conversation with anyone! There is rarely a dull moment at OCU, which brings us too…

1. Going on spontaneous adventures: Whether you are feeling fast food and hit up taco bell or you maybe have a sweet tooth for Hurts Donuts, or maybe you just drive around downtown and explore the wonders of Oklahoma (well maybe just the city:P).

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
