Here we are! We are back into the swing of things for the spring semester of 2014 and as much as I dread all of the reading and papers, (who doesn’t) having a routine again brings back the much needed structure. Sure, it’s going to be a difficult task leaving my comfy bed and endless Netflix marathons, [...]

I was going to insert a super cheesy quote about beginning 2014 with all of these endless possibilities but I’ll save you all from that tacky nonsense. (You’re welcome) Please don’t get me wrong, I definitely enjoy the feelings that are associated with a “fresh start.”  However, if you scroll through any Facebook newsfeed the [...]

It is amazing how many hours can be found in one single day once you remove all of the work for graduate school!  I mean, I genuinely love learning and bettering myself in all facets of life but a break always feels best when it is well deserved. I can actually enjoy the gym without the idea of an [...]

 “Ohhhhh We’re Halfway There” -Bon Jovi  I can’t help but think of belting the lyrics to Bon Jovi’s, “Livin’ on a Prayer” when we’ve reached this point of the semester.  I am shocked that it is already week NINE of my first semester of graduate school at Canisius! Now that I’ve given myself nine weeks [...]

I never realized how lucky I was as an undergraduate student at Canisius to live on campus in the residence halls for all four years. I could leave Bosch, Dugan or Village ten minutes before class started and still have time to spare. (Not to mention the wonderful tunnels protecting me from all of the [...]

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” -Andy Warhol When I made the decision to return to Canisius for graduate school, I had no idea that I would struggle with the transition. I mean, I only took one year off to teach in North Carolina, I figured everything [...]
