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) […]

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 […]

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.

It’s a weekend like no other, so epic and so integral to the University student schedule that administrators finally decided to incorporate […]

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 […]

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 […]
