The True Meaning Behind Rutger's Scarlet Knight

What do you think is the true meaning behind a scarlet knight? I always believe that there is more to a Rutgers Scarlet Knight than just being one.

When you choose to go to Rutgers University after senior year, you agree to be a knight. You will be the one that wields the sword against your demons and monsters. Those demons and monsters are your homework and exams. You sword in this situation is your pencil or pen. Your mind and brain are what controls you to maneuver the sword in the right way.

The worse is a college student or a scarlet knight that stands in your way. You do not want to have another burden on yourself when you are dealing with the responsibilities of a scarlet knight. When the opposing sword is pointed at you, fling that sword away from your sight and point your sword at your opponent. Tell him or her to back off and that being part of your burdens will be something that your opponent will regret. Your sword in this situation is your words. The opposing sword is the opponent's words that are drawn out to bring you down for competition, jealousy, rivalry, anger, hatred, or for no reason at all. You must speak out the right words against your opponent so that you will not have a double-edged sword in the end.

Remember to protect your loved ones. Your loved ones are your friends, lover, and family. They are the ones that are there for you. Your memories with them are precious and you do not want to lose them. Whatever you do at Rutgers University, do not even forget about them especially if you are living in a dorm there.

When you are living in a dorm, you are a scarlet knight that lives in a beautiful castle. You live with other scarlet knights that want to get to know you and cherish their time with you. When you are a commuter, your car is your noble steed. You ride in and out of Rutgers University. Despite all the bitter moments that you experience at Rutgers University, you know that your noble steed will take you home to your family. You will be safe and not remember that you are a scarlet knight unless you bring home monsters and demons that you have to slay. Those monsters and demons, as I said before, are our homework and exams.

As a scarlet knight, remember to preserve your honor. You chose to be a scarlet knight because of a reason. Whatever you do, do not lose sight of that reason. That reason is the oath that you made to yourself in the very beginning and the oath that you need to fulfill at the end of your adventure at Rutgers University.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
