“There’s So Much More” by Lauryn Magill

This past weekend I saw the movie “Dr. Strange” (it was incredible- especially if you’re a Marvel fanatic you should totally go see it).  One particular section of the movie, not to give away spoilers, basically goes to teach us that we’re looking at life through a keyhole.  We can only really see a fraction of what’s out there and what life’s meaning truly is.  I like to think that there is always a much bigger picture, one that we tend to forget about during the hustle and bustle of our daily lives.  Often when I’m feeling overwhelmed or stressed I like to stop and think about the fact that I am one of several billion people on this planet, and that this planet is a spherical rock essentially hanging in the middle of empty space in a universe that is mostly hostile to life.  That tends to humble me a bit, and puts my stressors into perspective.

“Absence Makes the Stomach Grow Fonder” by Carly Patent

Cooking has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I attribute this to my mother’s own passion for cooking.

She bought me my first cookbook, a copy of Rachael Ray’s Cooking Rocks! from which I created some pretty horrible dishes that my parents kindly ate. Continue reading

“Trying Something New” by Ben Aghajanian

“The finish line is right there boys and I’m on their coxen! We’re taking a power ten! Catch… Set! One!”

If you had asked me a month ago what the chances were that I’d row in college, I would’ve laughed and answered no way. Before coming here, I didn’t even know rowing existed outside of the Olympics. Continue reading

“The Indecisive Undecided” by Krista Webster

For years, we’ve been bombarded by the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?” Some people have had their hearts set on being doctors since they were 5, while others struggle to find their main passion–the “undecideds.” The typical, more represented problem of the undecided major  is “I don’t know what I’m good at” or “I don’t know what I like.” But what about those of us who like too many things? Is there such a thing as having too many passions? Continue reading

“What Is Self-Care?” by Stella Castor

What is self-care?

If we check Wikipedia, the ultimate hub of college knowledge, self-care is defined as “any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated.” That’s a lot of fancy words for “actions done by someone to keep themselves healthy.” In terms of mental and emotional health, self-care is a series of steps and procedures that every person should have in order to deal with troubling events, feelings, or actions.
