Ask Abby: approaching professors, life in fast forward

Q: I often want to talk to professors about intellectual ideas, but I find myself clamming up and feeling extremely vulnerable when I go to talk to that person. I’m OK in class and in a lot of social situations, but then I go to talk to a professor, and it seems like I’m looking […]

Drink of the week: iced passion tea lemonade

Iced passion tea lemonades are one of my favorite non-coffee drinks from Starbucks. However, the drinks can still rack up to $3 or $4, and most college students don’t have that much money to spend on a daily basis on drinks. I’m all about being frugal when it comes to food and drinks so I […]

Between buying all the healthier food and paying for a gym membership, there is hardly ever any money left to spend it on cute, fun workout clothes. As a dedicated bargain shopper who is […]

Fitness column: kickin’ asphalt, destressing

One of my favorite things about running is the emotional effects it has on runners. Like many artists or writers who turn to a blank canvas or page to find peace or meaning, the road (or trail or dread, I’m sorry treadmill) provides that for runners. Whether the struggle is school, work or personal, there […]
