‘studying’

Losing voice, gaining sleep

Dec. 10, 2017—Guys, I got sick right before finals and lemme tell y’all, it’s not fun. 10/10 would not recommend… It all started with losing my voice after an impromptu jam sesh with my suite mates and neighbors. My voice progressively got worse, and I caught a cold on top of it. My only method of communication...

Not quite Sweater Weather

Dec. 4, 2017—One of my mottos: Why be inside when you can be outside? Call it global warming, climate change, the South, etc., it’s hard to not enjoy this weather. Although we are in December right now, it feels more like October. Temperatures have been in the 60s and 70s, cooler in morning and evening but warming...

Calm before the storm

Dec. 4, 2017—Finals season is upon us… I’ve been saying this all semester, but time goes by so quickly at Vandy. It feels like we just started the school year, and it’s already time for finals.

On Fall Break

Oct. 15, 2017—Fall break holds a special place in my heart. It’s a comma in the middle of a sentence – a pause before the next movement of a symphony. A chance to take a breath, reset, and gain some perspective. Junior year has been, unsurprisingly, pretty hectic. I’d spent the summer down in Charlotte for my...

A Typical Day

Mar. 28, 2017—A question I get asked frequently (and used to wonder a lot myself) by high school students applying to colleges, my parents, and friends back home is “What’s a typical day like at Vandy?” A typical weekday for me in Vandy Land: Wake up around 8 Commons breakfast! Start class around 9 Lunch around noon...

My (Real) Vanderbilt Experience: It’s a Success (Sort of)

Mar. 7, 2016—It’s 2:00 AM and I’m at Stevenson Library. On my right are five research papers, newly printed and stapled. On my left is my planner, covered in writing. My head’s buzzing with all the stuff I have to do and I’m trying to keep everything under control. And one thought above all: College is so much harder than I thought it was.

Finals.

Dec. 23, 2015—A lot of you can probably relate to this, but studying for finals was never really a concern in high school. I was always pretty certain about the grade I’d receive, but in college it’s definitely more difficult to get the grade I want. Also, the most annoying thing was finding out that an A-...

The Five People You Meet During Finals

Dec. 18, 2015—And yes, those are my mechanism-covered whiteboards. I’m very proud of them. They helped me get a good grade in Orgo this semester, although I think they’re less Beautiful Mind and more like that scene in 21 Jump Street where Channing Tatum draws 4s all over the board in his Chemistry class
