It is the middle of April, and a couple inches of snow has unfortunately fallen on Northfield. I now have to revert to staring at the ground just to make sure I am going the optimal path with the least amount of slushy snow. And I hate to say this, but trying to speed through walkways as piles of snow fall from trees is a new type of fear I didn't want to experience here. But that's just Vermont, that's just life here in good old Norwich. Continue reading

Unfortunately, I couldn't enjoy Easter because, well, I don't have family here to celebrate with. But the good is, the laundry has never been less busy on a Sunday afternoon. Best feeling a person can have in the brink of finals week. Until then, more studying and more work. Continue reading

It is a sad time for humanity. After multiple semesters where The Mill sold Rockstar's in a 2 for $4 deal, they have given up on the amazing venture. Now, they have returned to selling them at Norwich price, which is over 3 dollars a can, and my wallet mourns. I only hope for another time when the event will return, and I will proceed to buy their entire lemonade Rockstar stock. Continue reading

I didn't notice until now, but I think Norwich made a deal with Ben and Jerry's and they will be serving free ice cream in front of Kreitzburg Library tomorrow. I am quite excited for that. After so much studying for exams and working on multi-week projects, I'd really like some ice cream. Aside from that though, nothing extraordinary happening through campus. Same old Norwich. Continue reading

It's the worst time of the year, it's exam season. And the best part about it is that after exams, we will immediately go into final exam season! There is no other time in my life that I dread far worse than this, because there are no breaks. It's all work, and even though the usual load is decreased somewhat, you need to study. Especially for stem majors, final exams mean more. Fail it and you're done. Continue reading

Sodexo had a chocolate fountain with a whole ton of fruits right next to the fountain. It's definitely a once in a lifetime thing. Throughout my entire two years here at Norwich, it's crazy to think that they wanted to serve us food with a chocolate fountain. I'm not sure how much it costs to run it, but I'm sure it's not cheap. Thank you to them, but also, I really wanted a sandwich. Continue reading

For the past semester, I've spent time playing for the Valorant B esports team. It was an extremely enjoyable experience, and it was something I didn't expect to enjoy so much. The program offered a 500 dollar scholarship if you made it to the B team, and 1500 if you made it to the A team. But, I like how it was something that allowed people who had interest in gaming to be paid. And I appreciate the opportunity Norwich gave me in having something like this in my life. I made new friends, and I certainly enjoyed life more because of it. It was a great way to destress after a long day of working and studying. Continue reading

For the past few weeks, the temperature has been dropping, to which I say thank you to. Vermont winter is just a different beast of its own, and I'm glad I don't have to deal with the prospect of slipping on the floor because snow piled up. I've never enjoyed snow, and I don't think many do. I'm just patiently waiting for the warm sun to hit, and then not being able to enjoy it because I'll be traveling back to Georgia in late April or May. From there, warm weather for the next four months. Nice. Continue reading

It's back. The painful, cold weather is back. The type of weather that forces you to put on a mask, knowing that if you didn't, your face would feel like a popsicle stick. The weather that forces you to put on thick, heavy snow boots knowing that if you walk through bridges, you're a deadman. The weather that lets you know it's time to stay inside, refer to the gym for exercise, and gain a bit of weight over the coming months. That weather is back, and I'm not ready for it. Continue reading

Woo! I'm staying here at Norwich for thanksgiving break! I'm not sure if that's the best thing to say, but I'm saying it. I can't really afford a trip back home, stay there for a week, then come back to Norwich before doing finals and doing the same thing for Christmas break. Too much money. I'd honestly prefer if the school decided to go online following thanksgiving break, but what can you do. Continue reading

It's been a tough ride, but we made it. I'm not sure how many of us did it, but we passed. To the people that did their best and got a decent grade, I'm proud of y'all. To the people that couldn't, I'm still proud of y'all. This semester feels like a burnout semester. Everyone is just exhausted, tired, wanting to go home and relax. At this point we need to sacrifice our weekends to keep up with work. I just hope things get better as the weeks go by. Continue reading

This week will perhaps be one of the most stressful. Not for no reason, it's midterms. Oh the horror. I can just imagine stem students crawling into a little ball realizing that what couldn't get worse, has gotten worse. The amount of studying, the time spent per class just trying to keep up, it's something I willingly suffer through for a better life upon graduation. It's not fun. Hope I survive. Continue reading

Saturday is the perfect day. It's that day where you've just recently finished classes so you can relax, and you can leave remaining assignments to Sunday. Just being able to stay in your dorm and know you don't need to do anything has helped relieve myself of the pains of midterms, homework, and classes. It's just that day where it feels right. And it's a good way to keep your mental health in check. Continue reading

The trees in Vermont are changing color! They have been changing since the beginning of October and I am excited. I am not the biggest fan of different colored trees, but I enjoy it when I see a tree that is completely red in color. The way it looks is extremely beautiful. And of course, the dead leaves are always a sore sight for eyes. Continue reading

I've kind of accepted that the first part of the semester will suck. It's just how it's supposed to be. You're thrust into a brand new curriculum, you have to learn how to time manage such things, and you need to make sure you balance things out with your extracurriculars. As long as you work hard, you will get a grade you will be happy with. Now, how hard you are willing to work will depend greatly on how much you value the class, but we're all here to get a degree, so work harder. Continue reading

It's getting colder! And I'm not a big fan. I've always dreaded the slow decline of temperature here in Vermont. And the way it changes temperature drastically until late November is a bother. One day you're deciding to wear a jacket because it's 45 degrees outside in the morning, then next you're wondering why you wore it when it's 75 degrees in the afternoon. Hoping to get past this and stick to a specific degree range! Continue reading

It’s been a tough first midterm. We currently have three planned which includes the final exam period, and I’ve sort of understood what I need to do in order to get good grades. It’s a good thing the semester is split in 3 different parts, so at least if we don’t do well during the first midterm, then we will get 2 midterms worth of work to get back into it. A very good way to build up and do good. Continue reading

Just recently, a few students created a Soccer club and I am extremely excited! We're able to play whenever we wish and there are lots of people that are available. I never knew there were so many people not on the soccer team that play soccer as well. I really enjoy what we were able to create because not only am I able to make more friends, but I'm able to exercise as well. Talk about fun. Continue reading

It's a weird but soothing feeling. Being alert of what you need to do and what needs to be accomplished throughout the week, but it's the weekend so why bother. I'm also at that point where I understand the stresses that will come along with my classes, so at this point following the mindset of: "do your best, but put yourself first". Just giving it everything I have while not burning myself out has been the goal, and let's just say, I've been doing well. Talk about relaxing. Continue reading

Norwich is a very hit or miss school when it comes to its social life. You can either live the best life with friends doing different activities that Vermont has to offer, or you can be alone and spend time doing individual activities. Now I'm not one to choose either, I believe every person should have balance in terms of being alone and being around others. Right now I'm spending time with the Student Government Association along with the Soccer Club and I'm also thinking of joining the Boxing Club, which is closed to being created. Outside that, I enjoy playing video and watching tv shows by myself. Balance is key in these types of things. Continue reading

Getting money in college is extremely important! The normal stereotype of college students is that they're busy working all day long while slurping down cheap instant ramen noodles. I don't think anyone really wants to live that life, too much sodium. Bloating can be a problem with that type of life. I currently work at the mailroom, and having extra money with me is a great way to ensure that I get the right food in me. Not to mention Norwich serves a whole ton of good food, I feel as if it won't be a problem here. Continue reading

As we go into higher levels of learning, I feel as if my brain burns out quicker. I'm not the type of person to do all nighters, in fact I never have throughout my time here at Norwich, but I'm also not the type to do anything past a certain time. Once it hits 8, I return back to my room and relax, doing whatever I wanted to do during the day that I couldn't do earlier. But yeah, the deeper we go into the semester, the more my brain gets fatigued. Continue reading

I enjoyed homecoming! It truly felt like the Norwich spirit was there. Games, food, people, there was everything. I was a huge fan of the food, especially with the apple cider and burritos they were serving. It was a pretty good four days. It was more lively than it ever was. Continue reading

I think regardless of whatever degree you're aiming to get, sleep is something that everyone in college wants. For the past week or so, I've been trying to catch up with the amount of "zzz"'s I've been getting. Lots of studying, mental exhaustion, not to mention extracurricular activities, and it's a weird type of a pressure I'm trying to deal with. Some students show up to classes and just sleep through the period. Just something to point, since everyone is going through a tough semester filled with work. Continue reading

What a week! Electrical engineering sure is tough. Lots of studying was involved, and that was only for the easy work of the semester. All throughout the day I've filled with stuff to study and my work study job. But, it's definitely a welcome sight. I enjoy being active, and doing all these things make me feel as if my mind is being used a lot more for the better. I'm feeling positive, let's see this continue throughout the semester.
