Week 3

Well, Classmates, we’ve made it this far. I thought I was busy before, but between classes, workouts, and the events of Sarah Wilson week, I’m exhausted. From spooky hayrides and a graveyard in the middle of the night, to singing to appease the seniors and their cursed water guns, this has been a crazy week. […]

Trying New Things

Its unbelievable that college started only two and a half weeks ago. I feel as though I have been here for months because there is no way I’ve been able to fit as much as I have in such little time. Since the start of school I have joined the women’s volleyball team here at […]

Progress is progress

After returning from  dinner at the White Rose Bar and Grill, I recruited my mother and my girlfriend, Brooke, to partake in a daunting task: keeping me from making myself look ridiculous. Having arrived at our store of choice, Kohl’s, it was time for my […]

My interests are learning about the environment, camping, painting, gardening and playing with animals. So if you ever need someone to […]

Probably the biggest change of my life…

I’m enrolled in the honors program at Wilson and, at my high school, York Suburban Senior High School, I was an honors/advanced […]
