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 […]

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 […]

An Ode To Hipsters (that’s never been sung)

August 30, 2011


Here’s to you, hipsters. You frail, chain-smoking, PBR-sipping, flannel-wearing, inexplicably sexy beings. As a sorostitute, I don’t know why I like you–it sure feels wrong–but oh, it’s definitely right. I’m so mystified by your ironic allure. How, pray tell, did you manage to put UGA on the map as one of the top hipster colleges […]

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 […]

Steeplechase: A Diary–Haters gonna hate, baiters gonna bate

April 17, 2011


I know, I know. I missed a day. But I was occupied, as you will soon understand. Yesterday was my sorority’s Steeplechase Date Day. We went to Kingston, Ga., for the Atlanta Steeplechase horse race. It was nuts. Knowing this would be the case, I set off to catalog the day’s events. Here is my […]
