A few mornings back at approximately 6:30, I ran through downtown Nashville by the Ryman Auditorium with a group of ROTC cadets during our Wednesday PT session. While the cold and the straight-line distance from my location to my bed would normally dishearten me, this was a notable exception. Why, Nathan? you ask, ignoring the...
The beauty of being in a city like Nashville is that you never know who you’ll run into when you’re least expecting it. Friday night, four of my friends and I went out into the city to go dancing and ran into someone unexpected...
If I were rushing a sorority this semester, I would have had so much to talk about during rush past the programmed greetings. And that's just one of the perks of travelling internationally over winter break.
