Awkward College Moments

At CCBC, most people are simply used to awkward things happening, so they probably don’t think that you are as awkward as YOU think you are when these things happen. Still, I think there are certain awkward moments that happen on our college campus that we all have experienced at least once– here is a [...]

What Where You Hang Out on the Catonsville Campus Says About You

My apologies to people who attend the Essex and Dundalk campuses or any of the extension centers– I am most familiar with the Catonsville campus myself, so this blog post only applies to Catonsville students ’cause I can’t account for the others. Also recognize that this post is just for fun and cannot accurately predict [...]

Books I Read This Summer

I read a heck ton of books this summer. Yay, me! As most of you probably realize, there isn’t much time to read for leisure during the semester, so this summer I decided to read as much as possible to make up for all the books I WON’T read during fall semester. Here is a [...]

Last post til Fall Semester

Well, here we go– last post tilĀ fall semester starts up! This past semester felt like both an eternity and an instant at the same time. I hope that whoever has read my blog has found some educationalĀ and/or entertainment value with it. It’s been fun blogging and I can’t wait to blog more in the fall! [...]

How to Fit In At CCBC! (SPOILER ALERT: You Shouldn’t Try To)

As I look out the window at a stop light, a flock of public school 8th grade girls cross the street. There they go, with their form-fitting Aeropostale shirts and light blue super-short jean shorts and purple backpacks. There they go, with their fluffy, long, straight hair. Not one looks unique, not one behaves uniquely. [...]

Did you apply to be a CCBC Student Life Ambassador or FYE Mentor? Are you excited and/or nervous for the upcoming interview process? Then all you need to do is *mega cheesy voice* be DEAFS! Okay, that’s a really bad anagram, I know. Shhh, just read. Last semester, I expected the interview process to be [...]

The Superpowers of Color

Let’s talk about clothes! Well, clothing colors, to be exact. I am going to guess that when choosing what clothes to wear for the day, you probably aren’t thinking too much about clothing colors. But should you be? Well, if you want to take advantage of the psychological effects (and some random cool facts) about [...]

It’s Summer… Now What?

For those of you that aren’t taking summer classes yet, you may be wondering what to do now. For real– now what? No essays to write, no finals to study for, no time hanging out with your friends at the library— so, what now? I have compiled a list of things that you can do [...]

Stories

Here are a few short stories that I wrote for my Creative Writing class. I am sharing them here because I think that perhaps some people might be curious about this “writing” that I speak of. Each title will be a link to the story, as pasting them here would be ridiculous. The Measure Of [...]

CCBC Teachers & Their Classes

Some people might be trying not think about school at all. Others might be starting their summer courses soon. Still others might be already thinking about fall classes. (I am not one of those people. I am, in fact, one of those last-minute register-ers who thinks and thinks about what classes to take and then [...]
