Toto, We’re Not in High School Anymore

My english classes in high school were simple: Learn the rules to writing, use them, get an A. Sounds like a math class, doesn’t it? Indeed, my view of writing became very formulaic… but oh so successful. So imagine my shock and displeasure when I found that those rules DO NOT WORK IN [...]

Top Ten: The Heart of Southern Politics?

I went home this past weekend and ran into a few relatives. After the obligatory small talk, I asked them if they planned on voting in the primary. The response was a collective “Why would we go do that? It doesn’t matter much, does it?” Mouth open, I recovered from my blackout [...]

Diary of A Pre-Med: Valentine’s Day

If there’s any truly annoying part of the pre-med track- besides the flaming hoops of expectation- it has to be the timesucks that can potentially RUIN the life of any hopeless romantic. With this year’s Valentine’s Day taking place the day in the middle of bad workload, I found myself having to… compromise any [...]

A Lesson On Manners: “You Need to Move. NOW!”

The highlight of the average college student’s week at UT can be pretty interesting (may those wild frat foam parties you went to with an 8am class the next day never be forgotten).

To Say Hello To Old Friends

I was sitting at my laptop for a good hour, trying to think of something relatively interesting to share with you all. Somehow, ranting about how I have seen the light of an awesome sci-fi novel, or about how I have found solice in the touch of a keyboard, just didn’t seem good enough. [...]

If I Knew Then What I Know Now

I think one of the most annoying things about life is that there isn’t an easy REWIND button that you can use to escape embarrassing moments, fix fiascos, or just try again with (You’d think that with DVR, TIVO, and every other mundane gadget out on the market, we would’ve been able to figure something [...]

With Love, in Brevity

Dear readers,

I Act Like a College Kid (And So Can You!)

After participating in Longhorn Saturday (which was a blast, by the way), I realized that a lot more people are interested in UT than I thought. But it seems that a lot of them have some predisposed perception of the college life. No fear, Ha is here! It’s time we found out how [...]

Since back in a day, which was a Wednesday, by the way…

I bring tidings of great joy today. I’m going to teach you not one, not two, but THREE lessons of comical injury (not an oxymoron, mind you). After all, what better way to spend a rainy day at the start of autumn than by reading up on the embarrassing predicaments of other people? [...]
