As Jan-term comes to a close and spring semester approaches we find ourselves trying to get back into the swing of things. Waking up earlier (or later perhaps if you had a morning Jan-term) and getting back into regular eating habits, you know, the usual.


As we come out of our mild hibernation there are some things to keep in mind: stay calm and focused and work on time-management. For many, the spring is the home-stretch for many of our seniors. For others it marks the beginning of yet another pledging season. Whatever it may be, don’t lose yourself in the high-stress situations you may find yourself in this time of year. Enjoy the little things. Treat yourself to a beautiful sunset up on the hill with friends, or a cupcake at Sweet Dreams Dessert Lounge. Please, don’t make excuses saying that you have no time (I know most of you spend at least an hour a day on social networking sites). You’re in college for crying out loud! There is always time for a little fun….and if you’re broke, like I said, no excuses. After all, the best things in life are free.

Until next time,


P.S. Rest in Peace Etta James. You are a legend, and legends never die.
