Soak Up the Sun

Does this school year have you feeling a little worn down? Do you think you deserve a vacation? With summer approaching quickly, I’m sure you are like me and have thought a hundred times about where you could go to get away. But if you are the average college student, you’re also probably thinking about the lack of money needed to fund that vacation.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness

Spring cleaning is in the air. The sweet, crisp wind blows from house to house spreading this fever. I’ve caught it and it seems like everyone has gotten it. Everyone EXCEPT my roommates. I am revolting. I want to see them doing the cleaning—the bathroom, the kitchen and the living room. I am living in filth, the dishes are gross, the countertop is grimy and the rug has to be vacuumed.

Vegt-ability to be Healthy!

“Zoooooom, Zoooom, open wide! Here comes the airplane, ready to land! Zoooom!”

Your parents may have tried this trick on you when they were trying to get you to eat your vegetables. They put a lot of effort into encouraging you to eat your vegetables, but did you listen?

If you often feel sluggish, tired and sick, don’t blame it on your disgusting friend who sneezed on you! You know, your parents were telling the truth when they told you that veggies are good for you.

No Shoes, No Shirt, No TIPPING, No Service


This was the eloquent title of an enlightening YouTube video I had the joy of watching just the other day. The star of this video was the lovely Ms. Sharece Thomas, who has it in her head that tipping her server is optional. If she has a whim to go out to a restaurant and does not feel so inclined to tip her hardworking waiter, she should not have to, Ms. Thomas argues. So she decided to create a six-minute-long video about why she feels this way.

Gym Bodies

As an athlete it is important for me to stay in good shape and maintain a high level of fitness. For this reason, I recently joined Urban Active gym in Legacy Village. As gym’s go, it’s pretty impressive. A huge weight section is accompanied by a swimming pool, luxury changing rooms, spinning rooms, fitness studios, a cardio cinema, and day care center where parents can leave their children in safe hands while they work out.

Longing for Home

It’s only Tuesday and I’m already homesick. I haven’t even been away for very long. Easter break was a blast, but it felt like a tease to what is yet to come this summer. I never thought I would say this, but I miss my family dearly, and it’s only been 20 hours since I’ve last seen them. As my college years went on, my longing to be closer to home has grown in intensity. But there is light at the end of the tunnel; school is done for the semester in a month.

And the Livin’s Easy

The most miraculous thing happened to me the other day.

I woke up in silence, without the persistent wasp-like buzzing of a space heater.   I put on shorts and flip flops. And, most importantly, I did not have to shovel mounds of snow to back out of my driveway. All these small but noticeable changes led me to the most exciting epiphany since my introduction to Starbucks back in 2006: Summer is near.

Metroparks Offer Serene Escape

South Euclid is your average American city. Businesses, houses and shops are condensed into grid-like formations along concrete roads. It’s filled with traffic jams, loud noises, and, well… people. There seems to be no escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or is there?
