Why You Should Study A Second Language In College

Why You Should Study A Second Language In College

While it is true that a university education is still a privilege these days, isn’t it also true that it should continue to be the responsibility of students to use their higher education to make a difference in society? Language is a fundamental aspect of a culture; communication and general comprehension between groups are what allow us to transcend borders and unite on one planet. The ability to speak another language has benefits for all areas of the public and of the self. For positive development of new generations (and society as a result), learning a second language should be seriously considered among all incoming students! I think every student should put in the effort to study a foreign language because I’ve experienced first hand all that there is to gain from doing so. And what all do you have to gain besides, you know, another language? I’m glad you […]

Why I Don’t Support The College Drinking Culture

why-i-dont-support-the-college-drinking-culture-1

Happy Halloween! I decided I would have this post go live today because, in college, “Halloween” is basically equivalent with “party” and we all know that “party” to students is basically equivalent with “alcohol.” So I’m going to come right out and say it. I don’t drink. I don’t have the desire to drink and frankly I’m too lazy to go find someone over 21 or get a fake ID to do so anyway. I honestly don’t have much respect for underage students who go out, party, and get drunk every other day. I really don’t have much respect for those who go out and get completely wasted, period, and I definitely don’t have much respect for those who feel the need to broadcast their solo cups across social media for their friends to think they’re living the dream life. What’s the deal with all of these pictures of beer […]

Why You Need To Try Indoor Group Cycling

Why You Need To Try Indoor Group Cycling

I was never very fond of exercise. I played lacrosse from seventh grade to tenth grade and that was basically the extent of any consistent physical activity. My first semester of college, I had more of a freshman 10 than a “freshman 15,” but considering it didn’t look like much of a difference and I had to walk across campus so often anyway, I wasn’t too concerned. At my school, we have to take a 100 and a 200 level gym class to graduate. The 200s are fun. I took bowling, but you could play tennis, gymnastics, badminton, basically something fun. The 100s, however, are actual workout classes. I took step aerobics because hey, how hard could it be. What I wasn’t prepared for were the multiple days of full body workouts my teacher liked to throw at us. Why am I telling you all of this in a post […]

Songs That Always Put Me In A Good Mood

good mood songs

If you’ve read my post about living alone this past summer then you know that I’ve recently come to appreciate the power of Spotify on my mental sanity. Today I want to share (in no particular order) the songs that can always put a smile on my face! 1. Gold by Britt Nicole I first heard this song when I was exploring a thrift shop and I just stopped in my tracks. I don’t know why it spoke to me like it did, but between the fun pop beat and the great message, I was just so happy. I also really love how she’s telling both girls¬†and boys they matter; you just don’t see that kind of self-love support for boys these days, which is something I really believe in. “So hold your head up high It’s your time to shine From the inside out it shows You’re worth more […]
