Exhaustion and Exhiliaration

With the end of the semester fast approaching, all areas of Colby life seem to be increasing in intensity. Work-wise, my friends and I are having some of our hardest weeks yet. There are just so many papers and so … Continue reading

About Catherine

Hi. My name is Catherine and I'm a sophomore English major, currently enjoying my first year at Colby. I was born and raised in Berwick, Maine, an exotic little town near the New Hampshire border. I am involved in Let's Get Ready, which provides free SAT prep for local high school students, and Inklings Magazine, which is a literary journal here at Colby. Like all English majors, I enjoy reading and writing, and Virginia Woolf. A hobby more specific to myself is that every Christmas I spend far too much time making elaborate snowflakes. It is a very seasonal form of artistic expression, but it is also, unfortunately, the only one in which I have any talent. Thanks for reading.

I’m so excited to continue my adventures here at Colby and share them with you all.

The Last Dash

Imagine you are in a marathon. You see the black and white checkered flag signifying the end, the golden line that you have been headed for. However, those last couple of meters until you reach the finish line are rough. As … Continue reading

About Anh Uong

My name is Anh (yes it is very hard to pronounce). I am now a sophomore in AMS (sweetest dorm on campus) still ready to take on the world. Traveling from the far reaches of Massachusetts, I have really enjoyed Maine and the beautiful landscape that accompanies it. I am interested in everything from math to writing, which makes selecting a major difficult, but that's why I am here at a liberal arts college. Recently I have decided on majoring in Computer Science and Global Studies. Around campus, I can be spotted with a ukulele, a stack of notebooks, and a smile.

About Stephanie

I am a freshman at Colby College, originally from Hong Kong. For the last two years of high school, I studied at Li Po Chun United World College (LPCUWC). I am very interested in economics and economic policy. Presumably, it will be my major. Living in a business hub since I was born, I am always very curious about how international and local businesses find opportunities in a tiny city. Music is very important in my life, too. I have been playing piano since I was four and I also play the clarinet. I wish to learn Jazz piano at Colby and the professors here are amazing.

Hooray

One of my goals this week has been to not get sick. It always seems that right before vacation, everyone gets sick all at once. We need the break to get away from everyone else’s germs and to recharge. I … Continue reading

Late Semester Doldrums

You look outside and your stomach growls. It’s so late, how did I miss dinner? Oh, wait. It’s only 4:15 pm, but it’s darker than a solar eclipse. Come November, the hours of sun are rather limited up at Colby. … Continue reading

Disconnect to Reconnect

Today is a momentous day. Not only has it snowed 3 times and then miraculously become sunny (which I’m not complaining about because I CAN wait for winter), but today is Reconnect Day. Presented by the Student Health on Campus … Continue reading

Routine

My routine seems to be falling apart. I used to be able to go to the gym at 7 in the morning over the summer. Now I’m lucky if I can make it to my 9am on time. I managed … Continue reading

Midterms are over!

Midterm exams are over! The air seems cleaner and the sky brighter (despite the sun setting at 4:30 everyday). The days until finals are ticking down steadily, but for now the stifling atmosphere is dissipating.  Unfortunately, my lowest midterm grade … Continue reading
