The Bucket List

The Bucket List

So graduation is at my heels and I have realized that there are so many things that I thought I would have accomplished by the time I left Notre Dame College. Except, I haven’t accomplished many of them at all… Here are a few of the things on my list: Dye my hair pink or […]

The Haunted Bell Tower

The Haunted Bell Tower

The Bell Tower has been “haunted” ever since I got to Notre Dame College. Well, legend has it that it’s been haunted for much longer. Really almost every college campus has some story about a haunting, including John Carroll University and Lake Erie College. I always wondered if these sorts of stories were just kind […]

Black and Blue, or White and Gold

Black and Blue, or White and Gold

This dress has been on my news feed for days now. There have been arguments on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about whether the dress is blue with black fringe or white with gold fringe. I see blue and black but when I sent the photo to my mom asking what color it was, she responded saying “What a cute […]

A Very Different “Night Class” On Campus

A Very Different “Night Class” On Campus

Night Class was the name of the bar we used to have here on campus. Instead of the game room we now call “Connelly” we used to have beer, popcorn and entertainers. In the 1980s, a student going to Night Class at Notre Dame College was doing something completely different than a student at night […]

The American Sniper

The American Sniper

The Oscar-favorite film American Sniper is about the country’s greatest sniper who saved many with his “gift.” Bradley Cooper was fantastic, and Chris Kyle, the real-life role he was playing was even more. When you see movies like this, you take a second look at everything. As a girl who grew up in suburbia and […]

My Split Personality Jack Russell Terrier

My Split Personality Jack Russell Terrier

Louie is a 4 pound Jack Russell Terrier that I am entirely convinced has split personality disorder. I bought him Thanksgiving weekend while I was in Dayton, Ohio. He was an impulse buy. Yes, I know, what kind of person buys a puppy on impulse? Well, I do. In my defense, Louie tricked me. When […]

Try Black Friday with Coffee, Bagel on the Side

Try Black Friday with Coffee, Bagel on the Side

Black Friday originally got its name from retail accounting records. These records used to be written out by hand. Records that were written in red ink indicated a loss in the company, while black ink indicated a profit. Recorders usually switched from red ink to black ink the day after Thanksgiving, hence inheriting the name […]

Bloodview Can Touch You But They Just Got My Shoe

Bloodview Can Touch You But They Just Got My Shoe

I personally don’t like haunted houses because I get scared really easily. The same thing goes for scary movies; I close my eyes for the majority of the movie. However, if you do like haunted houses, I would recommend Broadview aka Bloodview in Broadview Heights, Ohio. One of the first times I went to a […]
