“A Word of Advice” by Brittany Connely

Time has flown by fast. It seems like just yesterday that I was a freshman from across the country, eager to grow up and have new experiences. Never would I have guessed back then that I would become the person I am today and meet people that I cannot imagine my life without. Many of my posts this past year have been me reminiscing about what used to be and what could have been while trying to make the most of each day. With this being my last post for 186 South College, I wasn’t sure how to wrap up all of my experiences into one short blog post. If I were to write a post about everything that has happened since I first came to UD, it would be the size of a book. So, instead of that, I want to give one piece of advice to current graduates, future graduates, and anyone else who needs it.

It’s okay to not know what you are doing. Continue reading

“A Bookworm’s Advice” by Felicia Seybold

Click. The rumble of boiling water sounds as the electric kettle goes off. I plop a bag of chamomile tea into my favorite blue mug, pour the steamy hot water over it, and indulge in the calming herbaceous aroma. I snuggle up with my tea and Kindle e-reader in a warm blanket on the armchair, which is tucked into the secluded alcove in the living room. My roommates and I have created a reading nook there, complete with a side table, a faux fur rug, and twinkle lights. It’s any bibliophiles’ ideal respite from a long day. 

All is well until I’ve gone through my Kindle library and found nothing I want to read.

“Academic Overindulgence” by Nadya Ellerhorst

There sometimes comes a point when you feel as though you’re academically force-feeding yourself, when your heart (and planner) says, “Get it done!” and your brain retorts, “No.”

You stare at a text and can’t imbibe a single word, no matter how hard you glare at the page. The Google Doc on your screen remains blank as you sit and wonder how you could possibly start that paper despite the fact you haven’t missed a single lecture. Your Canvas calendar is filled to the brim with pressing due dates, but, try as you might, you just can’t seem to muster the energy to tackle them.

You, dear reader, may be suffering from what I like to call acute academic overindulgence.

“Advice for College Students (Taylor’s Version)” By Sara Klemow

Ever since Red (Taylor’s Version) was released on November 12, I have been listening to it on repeat as I walk around campus. I found out that I can actually walk from Louis Redding Hall to Purnell within one listen of “All Too Well (10 Minute Version).” Notoriously known for messages in her songs about passion and heartbreak, there is a lot of advice Swift gives through her poetic lyrics. Most of this advice has to do with relationships, but there is so much more Swift reveals to us.

Here is advice I have found from Red (Taylor’s Version) that can make your life as a college student much easier.

“Beyond the Comedy – Life Lessons from ‘Friends'” by Yamini Vyas

236 episodes. 10 seasons. One of the most popular television shows of all time. Friends revolves around the intertwined lives of six friends who navigate their 20s and 30s in New York City. Categorized as an American sitcom, the series definitely lives up to its name. Each episode is created with the perfect amount of comedic timing, sarcastic remarks, and playful banter. But behind that comedy lies a plethora of teachings to take away and implement into our own lives. As a bigger-than-huge fan of Friends myself (I’ve watched the entire show more than three times), these are the five main lessons I have recognized and continuously try to implement in my own life:
