Second Semester

Where do I even start?! This semester is already flying by and so much has happened since the fall. I love my classes this semester and am still working a lot with volleyball. The women’s team helps out with the men’s games, and we attend their games–watching them play is exciting. And since women’s volleyball […]

This is CRAZY!

Well, I guess it’s safe to say that I’ve been busy the past few weeks, given that I feel like I’ve only spent five full days on campus in the past four weeks. Okay, that number isn’t entirely accurate, but it sure feels like that is the case. Volleyball season and classes are both in […]

Almost there

Using the word crazy to describe the last few weeks is a drastic understatement. Between writing my research papers for first year seminar and college writing to finally suiting up in a Wilson uniform and competing in my first collegiate volleyball event, I’ve been busy! Starting with my academic endeavors, I’ve finally deciphered the finals […]

What Do I Do With the Rest of my Life?

I believe this is a question everyone, whether a college student or not, has asked themselves at some point. It’s a question college students are expected to have an answer for even though we have our entire lives ahead of us. I came to Wilson as an animal studies major, but what exactly can I […]

Found my rhythm

So now that it’s almost the end of the semester, I’ve finally found some sort of rhythm in my daily life, mostly. Honestly, I’m probably Webster Dictionary’s definition of organized chaos in human form… I’ve been pretty busy the past two weeks between volleyball, working in our glorious cafe/bookstore, and all of my academic responsibilities–and […]

Need Sleep

Its only 10:30 a.m. on this beautiful fall day and I already need another cup of coffee, or a nap! I know going to bed between midnight and 1 a.m. every night and waking up at 5:30 a.m. most mornings for 6 a.m. workouts isn’t the best practice, but I keep doing it. 🙂 My […]

10 More Days

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a history and political science major, but when I’m not glued to my computer searching for the latest in American and foreign political affairs, I’m out playing volleyball. I first tried volleyball in seventh grade because my sister was interested in the sport and she needed someone to pass with […]

Fall Break

I love volleyball. I honestly do. I never thought I would be saying that I love a sport, but I am. Last weekend there was a fall festival before our last home game and it was so much fun. It was the perfect activity to get us excited for our game. Even though we didn’t […]

  1/16th

Fall break is just around the corner, as evidenced by the 50 degree mornings, midterm exams, and, of course, fall break on the academic calendar. All of us have different plans for break: some students are going home for the long weekend, some are staying here and others are taking trips elsewhere. Personally, I’m cramming […]

Stressed Out

I think if you ask anyone on campus they will all tell you that this past week has been one of chaos and stress. I had a paper due Sunday night which didn’t get done because we had a volleyball tournament this past weekend and I didn’t manage my time well in the previous week. […]
