Travel: Spring break abroad

After months of sacrificing my Friday afternoons spending two hours on campus talking about Shakespeare, the day finally came that all of the reading and papers led up to. I nervously packed my suitcase with a week’s worth of clothing, assembled a carryon bag and gathered my passport and boarding pass. My mom drove me […]

Top ten moments of 2015

Moment #1 The ridiculous “what color is the dress?” question. Is it blue and black or white and gold? Honestly, it was blue and black for me for the longest time and then I had half a second when I saw white and gold. Will knowing the answer to this question help me get my […]

New Year’s traditions around the globe

Each and every year, at the end of the year, Americans gather together in celebration for the New Year. Even though we each have our own corky traditions, it’s about the same from house to house in the United States. Champagne, confetti and party hats are sold off the shelves in just about every store.

Fall travel destination: Stone Mountain, Ga.

Breathe in—breathe out. Do you smell that? That particular smell, that pumpkin spice, apple pie, “I can’t wait for Thanksgiving” smell. Fall is finally upon us ladies and gents!

Travel Tuesday: remarkable

As a 21-year-old college student my mind is always set on the on-set of a very imminent quarter-life crisis. The quote “What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable” said by John Green, runs through my mind daily and a fear rises inside my soul that […]

Travel Tuesday: toil and trouble

Some of us know the history of the night that most people see as the night dominated by fake blood, pumpkins and candy. But with scarecrows, Jack ‘o’ Lanterns and cobwebs everywhere, one of my personal dreams were coming true. I was about to celebrate my very first Halloween ever! Excited couldn’t cover it. In […]

Travel Tuesday: wanderlust

This word has become a pop culture reference, a tattoo and so many things that take the significance of the word for granted. The word “wanderlust” is associated with “the desire to travel.” It is that burning in your heart at 2am and you are dreaming about places you have only heard the names of. […]

Travel Tuesday: time flies when you’re having fun

Time is a really weird concept isn’t it? Einstein said that it all comes down to relativity. He proposed that all of time can be measured in the effect it had on oneself. For instance, putting your hand on a hot stove for a minute will make it seem like an hour, but sitting with […]

Travel Tuesday: fall break

A very prominent change in nature can be noticed during Fall Break. The leaves change color, the weather turns colder and sunbeams become luxuries. Like a few of the trees that I saw over my Fall Break, I have only a few leaves on my bare skeleton. But instead of losing more, I make more. […]

Travel Tuesday: celebrating diversity

One thing that I really care about is perspectives. I love learning how other people think and act in situations, especially if it differs from what I would do. As a Religion major, I usually get my fill, but then it was time for the 39th annual UNCC International Festival. I was delighted. As I […]

Travel Tuesday: ‘if you could read this, thank a soldier’

As I was walking to my class the other day, I came across a sign that read “If You Can Read This, Thank a Soldier.” I read it in passing, and thought to myself “That is really American.” I did not understand. I was in the second grade when September 11 occurred. Far away from […]
