  • Beyond the Poetry: Stories and Inspiration for Self Work

    Feminist Friday: The glassware and silver clinked rhythmically, providing a lively soundtrack for the frenzy of Wednesday’s lunch hour hustle. The room was packed with professionals and faculty from the college. As I waited for the other members of my party to arrive, my senses buzzed from humming chatter from the diners, dashing choreography of the wait staff, and rich smells from the kitchen.

  • The Queen B(ully)

    With all of this talk recently about mental health in our profession, I decided to write about topic that definitely affected my mental health and well-being during my years as a hall director. Bullying in the workplace was something that I endured in this profession and I think this topic is something that professionals won’t admit happens or they decide to turn a blind eye to the topic. Similar to mental health issues, we sometimes want to deny the fact that it happens to us in the field of student affairs.

  • Looking Beyond Relationship Status

    Everyone loves a good Buzzfeed list. It's the perfect distraction when you should be working and it will make you laugh, reminisce on your childhood, or want to shout out loud “Are you in my brain!?” The most recent list to catch my attention was one that listed 25 things that get harder after age 25. It was just so true! Especially number nine: experimenting with trends. They always look so fun on the 18 and 19 year old college women I see around campus every day, but when I try it, cute not so much. You know what else is interesting about this list? Four of them are all about either being single or married. And to this point I would like to add item number 26 to Buzzfeed's list: after age 25 it becomes increasingly harder to ignore your relationship status.
