Three Comforting Casseroles to Share

Three Comforting Casseroles to Share

In light of recent events, discussions, and protests regarding the injustices experienced by many Americans that have been going on both here at Vassar and all over the country, I would like to propose three comforting dishes that are made to be shared. What better time than the present for friends to come together? And what better way to bring people together than food? During these stressful times, it can be beneficial to gather together to discuss, share, and learn…

It’s the Little Things

It’s the Little Things

Since everyone is trying to meet deadlines before the school year ends, I decided to keep this blog post short and sweet! Hopefully the things I show you will give you the tiny push you need to keep going. 1. Cute French Bulldog Puppy Argues Bedtime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1GA_r8Rf1I To be honest, I am a one-puppy (golden retrievers) kind of gal, but this baby French bulldog is so precious that it will lift anyone’s spirits.

The Solidarity of Sleep Deprivation

The Solidarity of Sleep Deprivation

Each time finals week approaches and the semester ends with an explosion of stress, I find myself truly amazed at just how little sleep on which college students are able to function. I recently overheard someone explaining that she had plans to pull an all-nighter to finish one essay, go to class, eat food, attempt to sleep from 4:00 p.m. to midnight, and then pull another all-nighter to tackle essay number two. That, my friends, is what I call impressive, especially when I compare…

How to Stay Productive in Beautiful Weather

The year is winding down. The stress of preregistration and housing for the fall semester has pretty much ended. Students are running out of Dining Bucks and actively trying to get rid of meal swipes at UpC at an alarming rate. And, let’s be honest, it’s gotten to the point in the semester when everyone is calculating how little work they have to do to pass all of their classes. The taste of summer is in the air, the number of weeks left of school can…

Lazy Loafing

Lazy Loafing

I have a theory that all of my professors got together and planned to make all their papers and finals due at the same time. I don’t know about you all, but I major in procrastination with a minor in b.s.-ing—I have had this motto since high school. As soon as I came to college, though, I realized that everyone is a lot smarter than I am, and that they actually leap into the library daily in order to ace their classes. To follow…
