I took my last final of the semester today, and I’m ready to begin my summer.
Going into my senior year means that I have a few things to do this summer.
First, I am completing my second internship for my Digital Media Design major. I’ll be working with my county newspaper, and hopefully helping them to use social media to better reach their audience.
I’ll also be preparing for my senior seminar in my English major. That consists of reading the book Invisible Man and some contextual information.
Just because the semester’s over doesn’t mean the learning stops!
Have a great summer,
Today marks the last day of classes for Muskingum students.
One of my most memorable last classes of the semester was my Advanced Creative Writing class. We went to the reservoir here, which is a really beautiful place.
We spent the time walking, enjoying the nature scenery, and taking pictures of the gorgeous view by the lake.
It was a really great experience. Many classes at Muskingum take advantage of small class sizes by having field trips like this or having class outside when the weather is nice.
It’s a neat aspect of being a student here.
Have a great remainder to your week.
I hope you’re having an excellent week!
Last night I participated in my first poetry reading with our literary magazine, First Circle.
I’m not much for speaking in front of people, so it was pretty nerve-wracking. In the end, though, it was a really cool experience.
I’m proud to say that I’ve been chosen as the Featured Writer for this edition, and I’m excited to see my work in print.
Muskingum has all kinds of rewarding opportunities like this, and I’m glad that I can utilize them.
Have a great remainder of the week!
My week is already off to a busy start with a couple big papers, some small assignments, and work. So, I’m extra thankful that I had a chance to go on a nice long walk this weekend with a friend and enjoy the beautiful blooms that have popped up all over campus. And, of course, I had to snap a few pictures while we were out. This photo, one of my favorites, shows the bright blue sky tinged with sunshine, pink blossoms, campus lake and bridge in the background.
I hope you get a chance to enjoy sping also!
This week has been a lot of fun on the quad here at Muskingum because there are zombies on our campus which has gotten the whole campus involved. The game is called zombies vs. humans and it is like one big game of tag! There have been students as well as professors who have participated in this game and who are entertainment for the whole campus to see.

I hope you’re having a great week.
Last night, my sorority had an event where we got together with two of our advisers and talked about relationships between women. We all got a piece of paper and wrote down the negative things people have said about us, which didn’t feel very good. Then we turned the paper over and wrote our name. We passed the sheets of paper around the circle and wrote something nice about each person. It was great to get that piece of paper back and see how much I matter in the life of others.
I think one of the greatest things I’ve learned at Muskingum is how easily people don’t know their value. I make a point, every day, of telling people I care about how important they are and wishing them a great day.
It’s a simple thing, but it’s something that I’ve learned a lot from. I also realized how great it is to receive the feedback from people who also wish me well. It’s nice to feel appreciated.
I guess the lesson here, ultimately, is the reward of working to make the lives of others better.
I’m really grateful that my time at Muskingum has allowed me to learn that lesson.
Have a great remainder of your week,
I just wanted to share a photo that I snapped walking to one of my classes yesterday of the beautiful pink blossoms sprouting from a lot of the small trees on campus. Although I took this photo beside Caldwell Hall, the tree-lined lake is stunning when all of the trees bloom, so I’m planning a walk on that side of campus as soon as those trees change. This is one of my favorite things about Muskingum: the beautiful landscaping and rural setting make it absolutely gorgeous as the seasons change, and spring is especially wonderful since the blossoms are fresh and suprising on the day that they pop up. Today, our Advanced Creative Writing class even ventured outside to enjoy the weather by lounging on the quad for our poetry workshop.
I hope you’re all enjoying the lovely, fresh weather as much as I am!
