Of Beards, Beer and Bros: An Ode to Athens, Ga.

November 28, 2012


The whole idea of one’s “territory” seems rather antiquated in 2012. All the same, it feels utterly appropriate to refer to Athens, Ga., as mine. Though a newly minted graduate of the University of Georgia, the town’s economic life-blood, I still call Athens home — it has my heart, after all. I’ve considered every (extremely frequent) […]

“Red & Dead:” Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?*

August 16, 2012


Believe it or not, a group of twenty-somethings with noble intent to preserve and provide objective news existed before “The Newsroom” premiered. I am proud to associate with a group of these twenty-somethings. And they are some of the most committed young people I know. During my last semester at the University of Georgia (spring […]

New leaves

May 15, 2012


I remember my first day at the University of Georgia, as I walked to class doe-eyed and overdressed, angry I settled for anything less than a private liberal arts college.

The GA/FL victory: a senior treat

November 1, 2011


I wrote this column hurredly over the course of about an hour after driving 6 hours home from St. Simons Island. But I mean every word! (Original post here) — Georgia-Florida isn’t just a game. It’s the epic and insane Frat Beach. It’s watching a Vietnam veteran named Horace with a ponytail in his beard […]

Life’s a (frat) beach.

October 25, 2011


Once a year, there comes a time in a UGA student’s life that most would liken to Christmas — or, at least, whatever would be the booziest calendar holiday for any given person. It’s a weekend like no other, so epic and so integral to the University student schedule that administrators finally decided to incorporate […]

Do costumes the creative way this Halloween.

October 23, 2011


Below is my column on Halloween that was printed in the Red & Black last Thursday. It has more allusions than I ever thought my editor would allow, which I consider a personal victory. You can find the original online post here. Use my ideas for inspiration, or leave some of your own in the […]

University is the place for reality (via The Red & Black)

April 25, 2011


This is my column that was published today. Totes counts as a post! — I can’t turn off reality. It’s my weeknight highlight, my hunch to read spoiler alerts, my reason for taking a break from the chaos around me to peer into someone else’s life. But as I sit with bated breath at panel results to […]
