Since I’ve been back from winter break, it has been hard trying to keep myself motivated in school.  When I returned the first week, I had to go home immediately because I had surgery.

February 28, 2020

In boxing, there is the term “catching that second wind.” The second wind refers to getting past the first burst of tiredness and getting back and doing another round. Currently we are ending week seven of this semester, and I think my second wind is going to kick in at some point, and for other...

Ever since grade school I have been told to surround myself with good people. People that have good values and do good things. I was told that the people that I do surround myself with will have a huge impact on who I become.  Boy, were they right. The crowed that I hung out with in school were people...

Welcome back, Panthers! I hope everybody’s first week back wasn’t too stressful. I wouldn’t describe mine as profusely stressful, per se. I also wouldn’t describe it as exactly overwhelming, but I also wouldn’t say I’m underwhelmed. I started my week, probably the way most of us did, by worryi...

Prioritize school at this time of the semester

Megan Keane, Columnist

November 7, 2018

I’ve said it once, and I’ll continue to say it a thousand more times: this semester is insanely busy. I have—what seems like—a paper due every other day, several short stories to read nightly and a couple of projects a week. There’s barely time to breathe. So, what did I decide to do? Get a...
