As I sit here eating my Lucky Charms and sipping very strong coffee on a Sunday afternoon, I can’t help but feel that the adult world I’m stepping into and the adolescent world I’m leaving behind sometimes come together in beautiful ways. You’d really expect them to clash which, believe me, they do, but this weekend my life seemed to be a bit more harmonious than usual. Continue reading

Updates and Countdown to the BSA Fashion show

We have just returned from spring break and now it is full speed ahead. You would think that after a break I would take it easy but in fact it is the complete opposite.

However, it is exciting and fun to see that eventually all my hard work will pay off in the end. Continue reading

Going home is just as good

As spring break winds down and I begin my frantic day-before-the-flight packing, I look at my phone and see the annual overdose of spring break pictures from every tropical place you can imagine. Spring Break is all part of the college experience, a time when college students become enamored with the idea of sunshine, parties, and large amounts of distance from their families.

It is a really fun student run event and that is what makes it so amazing. Continue reading

Essential apps every college student should have

As the world continues its technological advances, one of the things that will be on the forefront of everyone’s minds is what new additions and features smart phones are going to continue to develop. Smart phones are the fuel that makes our generation go. With a smart phone, you are able to do so much on such little time. You can check your email, send a tweet, respond to a text and check how your favorite sports team is doing, all within the time it takes you to walk to class.

Going along with the smart phone trend is the invention of the “app”. These are applications you can find and download in order to tailor your iPhone specifically for you based on what apps you download. For students, there are many different options in terms of what to download. However, there are some essential apps that every college student should have. Continue reading
