Christmas Eve – Unplugged?

The clock just switched over and suddenly, it’s Christmas Eve. I can’t sleep. I thought that Christmas induced insomnia only inflicted itself upon young children or at least waited until Christmas Eve cycled through twelve hours of daylight.  But no, apparently not.

University=Life

University is my life. I do not major in AOII (my sorority).  Nor do I simply lurk in the coffee shops on campus or the library.  All the same university is my life.

Lost In This World of Twists and Turns

When you get lost for the first time as a child you experience momentary panic.  At least I did, for others that panic might not be so momentary.  But once you move on past the realization that you are not familiar with your surroundings or the people passing you by, a feeling of practicality sets… Continue reading Lost In This World of Twists and Turns

I’m An Addict: Not A Journalist Or A Junkie

I’m an addict and so are you.  Everyone in the world has an addiction – be it booze, brains or beauty.  An addiction is defined by the Collins English Dictionary: Complete & Unabridged 2012 Digital Edition as, “The condition of being abnormally dependent on some habit.” As the summer careens to a close, like a… Continue reading I’m An Addict: Not A Journalist Or A Junkie
