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...

Walking in a Winter Vandyland

Jan. 20, 2016—It’s that time of year again–the temperatures are dropping, the squirrels have ballooned to nearly comical levels of chubby, and the University is sending out its email about the dangers of hypothermia on an open campus. Yes, folks, it’s officially–drumroll, please–Nashville Winter! Now, listen. I’m from Jackson, Mississippi. We don’t do “winter” in the prototypical...

One Big High: Work Hard, Play Hard

Oct. 11, 2015—My family would often play a game called High-Low. If you haven’t heard of it, what you do is go around and have everyone says his or her “high,” best part of the day and “low,” worst part of the day. Well, my low for the weekend was that at the concert I went to...

Spontaneous Snow

Jan. 30, 2015—Happy new year! Okay, so I’m a little late. I apologize for having not blogged in a while; I’ve been so busy and so many different things have happened over these first few weeks of the semester, I’ve barely had time to catch my breath. But that’s a good thing. Last semester was amazing but...

Curd Your Enthusiasm at “The Bloomy Rind” (Sorry for the Cheesy Pun)

May. 9, 2014—This guest blog was written by the illustrious Dave Bruns, my peddling partner to "The Bloomy Rind," an artisan cheese shop in East Nashville. We biked a long whey, almost ten miles back and forth, for our midday meal due to our infatuation with cheese. His witty writing is quite gouda, so maybrie you too will become enraptured by his tale of our quest for mouth-watering goodness.

Cheers from Chattanooga

Apr. 11, 2014—My friend A., who lives in Atlanta, didn't want to drive four hours to Nashville and I didn't want to bus it four hours to Atlanta, so we chose a halfway point: ChatChat, as I fondly call it.

The Final 100 Days

Jan. 31, 2014—Well, just like that, January is just about over, and, today marks only 100 days left until graduation. I am in denial, and I would say that most of my friends are right there with me. In honor (mourning) of this special day, the Senior Class Fund, held an entire week of festivities, culminating in...

Getting Home

Dec. 14, 2013—One thing I’ve learned in my four years of traveling back home from Nashville to Naples is that Southwest creates some weird flight patterns. Fourteen hours is quite the drive though, and since I don’t have a car, flying is generally the best option. There’s no direct flights to the airport closest to my house,...

The Drive to Miami

Dec. 13, 2013—Yesterday was a pretty long day. My sister and I were up at the crack of dawn to drive from Nashville to Miami. We did it all in one day and it took us just over 13 hours. I picked her up from Commons and we were able to use her breakfast meal to get coffee and muffins for breakfast.
