The Ultimate BGSU Senior Undergrad Bucket List

It's happening, the time is here. It is officially my last semester at Bowling Green State University. I'm not quite sure how time flew by so fast, but here I am, a few months away from being a college graduate. This semester is definitely bitter-sweet, but it wouldn't be right if I didn't make a senior BGSU bucket list. Let's all try to hold back the tears and start checking off this list.

1. Drink a fishbowl at Nate & Wally's

The fish bowls at Nate & Wally's are their staple! I can honestly say as a senior undergrad, I have never tried one before. I know it's crazy, but don't worry I'll get it done.

2. Paint THE rock

You know the rock, the one that looks like paint has been thrown on it for years; because it has. Nothing like marking your territory other than making beautiful art or signing your name on the rock. You're only an undergrad at BGSU once!

3. Uptown Downtown Crab Race

Every Wednesday at 11 p.m. Downtown Sports Bar hosts their weekly crab races. Pick your crab, give it a name and watch them go. As weird as it sounds, it's a great time and definitely a must-do if you're graduating this upcoming Spring.

4. Run through the Founder's fountain

Who else has always wanted to do this? I can't be the only one!

5. Senior Bar Crawl

Grab your friends, laugh until you cry (or just cry) about graduation & make the night something you will (hopefully) never forget.

6. Attend Spring Stampede

Although it may be rough the next morning, this is an event you don't want to miss. Especially the cute shirts for each year!

7. Try Wood County's BEST steak in town at Trotter's Tavern

Trotter's Tavern is a secret to a lot of students on campus and by far the cutest restaurant in town. They have been titled best Steak in Wood County for several years now. Do yourself a favor and enjoy a Little Brown Jug steak dinner. Don't like steak? They have a Chicken Brown Jug as well. Yummy!

8. Ice skate at BGSU's ice rink

This is an awesome idea for a date or a fun afternoon with some friends. Even if you're a terrible ice skater like me, it will definitely bring a lot of laughs and great memories.

9. Enjoy Trigga Meals from Ziggy's

Buffalo chicken fries, anyone?

10. Go to a BGSU sporting event

Pick a sport, put on your BGSU gear & celebrate after a win!

11. TRY and eat BGSU's largest pizza in town

Pizza Pub 516, formally known as Myle's Pizza, has one of the largest pie's I've ever seen. The "Everything But The Kitchen Sink" pizza comes with double cheese, sausage, ground beef, pepperoni, ham. mushrooms, black olives, green pepper, and onions. See if you can get past the first slice.

12. Hang out with Freddie and Frieda

The two cutest falcons in town deserve some attention, too!

13. Finally purchase your BGSU Alumni Gear

Hopefully, your tears don't stain the new shirt.

Congratulations & cheers to BGSU's class of 2019.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?

Self-Love Is The Best Love, That's Just How It Is

Do you ever feel like you can't please everyone? Self-love will do the trick.

I've been feeling a little down lately, with the understanding that friends don't last forever and that I can't always please my parents. Life has been rough for everyone lately and it's not easy to stay happy and optimistic during these times. But I promise you, you are on this earth for a reason. You are here because God formed you, to love, and to be loved.

When things are tough, realize that you have yourself always. No one can take that away from you. You will always be you. No matter who you are, what you believe, or where you've been in life, at the end of the day, you are you. You can love you, therefore giving you one reason to stay here on this Earth.

Nobody Wants To Grieve, But That's The Price We Pay For Love

Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right.

Death always seems to come when life is good and everything starts to be going alright. And then out of nowhere, you're reminded of how cruel life can be. The stages of grief don't always go in order, they come in waves or all at once. Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right. I take comfort in the fact that everyone experiences grief, even when you feel all alone knowing that everyone goes through a process that helps a little bit.

Living With Bipolar Disorder Is An Everyday Battle, But I'm Fighting It

I went from depression, to anxiety, to bipolar disorder.

I've thought about how to write this since my diagnosis. I've thought about what kind of feelings it might bring up from my mom, former friends, and even myself. I've rewritten it a thousand times in my head, but never could quite get the words onto my notepad, but tonight I'm going to sit down and write it.

I'm A Black, Gay Fashion Lover Who Grew Up In The South, And I Want To Be A Beacon For The Future

Giving your life story is never easy, but it can be, if you want to make a difference.

Jacorey Moon

Growing up in Georgia was not always the accepting place we know it to be today thanks to Atlanta. Let me preface this by saying, I had a pretty good life growing up. I was raised by a single mother who sacrificed so that I could live the life that I lived. I was spoiled rotten. One way that my mother spoiled me was through clothing.

These 10 Black Women Were Our 2000s Fashion Icons — We're Still Replicating Their Looks Now

We recollect on some of the Black stars who served as fashion icons during the 2000s.

When we talk about the 2000s, it's always filled with nostalgia. For most of us, we grew up during that era with the razr flip phones or sidekicks, and decade staple designers like Juicy Couture, Von Dutch, and Ed Hardy. It was time of daring fashion choices and red carpets that we now look back on and say, "what were they wearing?"

A sector of people that exemplifies the fashion icons who ruled the 2000s, were Black women. So, I feel as though it's my duty to shine light on these fashion icons. Here they are:

As a college student (really as a broke person with no cable,) Netflix is my go-to for solitude- style entertainment. My favorite types of shows to watch on Netflix by far, are dating shows.
