My chaotic conference weekend

On top of my many commitments to student media, I also serve as the president of the Residence Hall Association. Our organization is dedicated to advocating and promoting community amongst the seven residence halls that make up campus. Most universities across the country have a variation of RHA, and every year these organizations gather for several conferences.

A tribute to the trees

If anyone knows me, they know that I have a deep emotional connection to trees, more specifically, the turning of the leaves on campus each fall. As I fell more charmed with our campus’ foliage during my first semester at Ship last year, I decided there could be much worse things for a college student to derive joy from.

Journal Entries, November 7

This semester for me has had its ups and downs. One feeling that I have experienced most of all is not feeling good enough for me, for others or for my dreams. I feel as though I am giving my best, and sometimes my best is not good enough for people.
