Liverpool-the anthem of our class

As everyone may or may not know, Dr.Campbell is leaving Mary Washington after this school year. This really came as a blow to many. Most, if not all students involved with the english department know that Doctor C is perhaps one of the more inspiring instructors around. His ability to bring others to reflect critically […]


This semester has been one of comfort. I for one came back after the winter break and felt right back at home. But there are a few things that have changed, and these changes have been pretty drastic. Soon construction on campus will be complete and new facilities on campus will be available. Our new […]

watching the dream fade

So i have finished this rigorous semester, and among many hard learned lessons I can say this much for sure: I am not going to major in physics, nor will I even venture to try. This sounds like something basic that I should have learned some time ago, but no. I once dreamed of being […]

So come and skate with me…

Hey everyone, As the class comes to an end, I feel like I owe, to some degree, an explanation. Personally, and I say this only because I feel like there was something I meant to get across that didn’t quite make it’s way across the bridge. What I want to get across to everyone is […]

The song is (as the title alludes) “Such Great Heights” by The Postal Service. The first cover I heard was from a band that is still gaining popularity called “The Wrong Trousers”. I heard […]

G.O.D. by Common,

At one glance, I figured the things that he was telling us were things that we all may have known, but that deserved a little extra emphasis. It wasn’t until about 5 minutes ago, During my Friday wine down […]

A puff of Pink Floyd, a shot of Sean Kingston, a line of Lupe Fiasco.

After a long night of working on lab write ups for physics, monday morning seemed to lag endlessly after only an hour. the worst of it was the exhaustion after less than hour of class. as I sat in seacobeck, I began to assess my resources and see what I could find to help keep […]
