“Reading With 186 South College” by Jenny Gloyd

When was the last time you read a book cover to cover? I’m guessing that this question will have plenty of different answers ranging from, “I reread one of my favorite novels over the weekend,” to “I have not picked up a book since 9th grade.” If you fall closer to the former, amazing! Books are a fantastic way to entertain yourself, to inform yourself, and to gain new perspectives! If your answer lies closer to the latter, you may just need to find out what kind of book you like, or find the proper time and incentive to read.

“Love Yourself” by Shrinidhi Dandibhotla

Hi, my name is Shrinidhi, and I’m a freshman here at UD. As we all know, this year has been a lot more chaotic and unpredictable than any of us would have ever imagined. Regardless of whether it’s someone’s first year or last at UD, this semester has been a learning experience for everyone, and we’re all going through this together.

Over the last six months, I’ve come to realize the importance of self-care and self-love more than ever before. During the beginning of quarantine, towards the end of March, I had way too much time on my hands, if that’s even possible. It was the first time in my life that I didn’t have anything to do–no task that I was rushing to complete and no goal that I was eagerly running towards. Honestly, I felt weird, like super weird, because I simply had no idea of what to do with all that time on my hands. It’s actually quite ironic now that I look back and talk about it because I remember always thinking to myself that I would accomplish so many things if only I had more time. And when I had an abundance of time, I didn’t know what to do. Continue reading
