Have you ever had memories that seem to haunt you? Memories that may have been good, but when recalled, they bore themselves down into your heart and begin to cause an ache. The recollection of things that once made me happy now seem to leave a bitter taste in my mouth. I think of people I knew, cared...

How many times have you been with someone who spends most of their time documenting their every move, trying to get the best selfie? Taking away from the energy of the moment by forcing you to pose for six pictures of the two of you doing whatever you happen to be doing at that moment. Granted, I...

I'll be honest, I'm going to pick some low-hanging fruit with this column and write about Ebola. “I know, I know,” you'll say. “Everyone's overreacting; I'm more likely to get pink-eye from touching toilet paper that I found in the garbage of the bathroom.” First off, you're disgusting...

In this day and age, tattoos are a box on an application and more often than not, if there’s a check mark in that box you’re out of luck. Let me put this into perspective: you’re graduating. You’ve finished medical school, and you officially have a medical degree. You graduated top of your...

“Davis, Colin. Davis, Colin.” At the sound of his name, a boy, Colin, whom I had never met before, stepped forward. At that moment, there was no one in the entire world that I loathed more than that boy. What right did he have to get his copy before I got mine? No right at all. But then, I heard...

When I was in fourth grade, I had to wait for the librarian to find books challenging enough for me, while the rest of the class eagerly sifted through the shelves in the elementary school. Sometimes the librarian had books in the school she brought from her own personal collection and others she brought...

It’s time to prepare for finals. You may complain, “Fall break just ended!” “The end of the semester is ages away!” I am aware. You've got half of 16 weeks stretching before you. But in reality, the time to start preparing was a while ago... about eight weeks, actually. True, that is...

The other day after a tough workout, a couple friends and I headed over to the Student Union to grab some salads from Croutons for dinner. We were greeted by a sign informing us that, due to some equipment malfunction, the salad joint was temporarily closed. Our immediate reactions included frustration...

One of the common concerns as a new student is meeting new people and making friends. Some people are not good at it, and some find it daunting to take a step outside their little bubble. It’s not easy to mingle and integrate with people for anyone, let alone for international students. It’s a perfectly...

It is a commonly known fact that life at college can be hard and stressful; you don't need me to point that out. Many students have their own ways of coping with the stresses of college: homework, studying, time-management, employment, relationships and even religion. How one handles the difficulties...

I don’t remember who he is anymore, but I doubt I will ever forget that last time I saw him. At the beginning of my second semester at the University of Toledo, I was passing by a seat outside of Bowman-Oddy when I caught eyes with another freshman. We had gone to a simple orientation class together....
