    I agree with your statement about floormates. Tonight we had our last floor meeting. It was bittersweet. Even our RA said he hadn’t realized what a close-knit community we have become. I’m really glad I got the chance to meet so many new, amazing, and talented people this year.

    ThumbnailTransitioning from high school to your first year of college is always a learning experience, but you will significantly grow as an individual. It is a good time to embrace your sense of self and you will begin to […]

    • I thought you last piece of advice was really funny, I will definitely remember to do that for my 8 am next semester!

    • I think your piece of advice “be present” is super crucial. I know so many people that skipped going to classes because their professors didn’t take attendance and many of them ended up failing these courses because of all the information they missed. The class meets for a reason. Also, going and sitting there is almost just as bad so I like that you make the point that going to class involves engaging in the lesson. Again, so many people go to class and sit there on their phones not paying any attention. It’s important for people, especially new freshmen, to understand college isn’t a place that you can slide by in (though pop culture references to the establishment often portray otherwise).

    It is good to see that the amount of hospital closings is decreasing. It seems that there was a peak of closings in the 1970’s. Do you know why that is if there is a specific reason?

    It was very clever to include a quote in your infographic to drive home the importance of this information. According to your statistics the CIS program seems to be an important help in schools. Out of curiosity, do you know where in the U.S. that these programs have had the most impact?

    • I really like this infographic! I think it was really aesthetically pleasing and conveyed information really well. It’s scary to see the jump in oil spills in 2010, jeeze.

    This is a very good one, especially considering how important it is to network. So making sure the department knows you by face and name will be a very good thing if you ever need references or connections in the future as you continue to work towards your career. I’ll try to come check out the show if I get the chance!

    I think this is a great thing to dedicate yourself to for the next 30 days. It’s a very selfless act but it is so simple. I know whenever I receive a compliment it makes my entire day a little bit better. Hopefully after 30 days of complimenting people consciously it will become a habit. That would be a nice habit to have.

    I think this is an issue that provides many of opportunities to find different perspectives and opinions on gun laws from many different people while having more of a purpose and narrow focus to the argument. Maybe something to add to your research is more statistics. Finding data on the overall increase in youth violence or types of youth…[Read more]

  • My topic for my ethical reasoning essay is the local issue or offshore drilling being being established along the coast of the Hampton Roads area.

    RESEARCH QUESTION:

    How would establishing offshore drilling […]

    • Yes! Ya your question is super clear and perfect for this assignment! I think you already have some great points to go off of and my only recommendations you have already listed for yourself! I agree more sources to strengthen your argument and I think a personal story would be a really nice touch here. Nice job, you seem like you’re off to a really great start here!

    • Your research question is really good! You seem to be very organized and I know your paper will be awesome. You could use pathos to play a huge role by finding things that drilling does that makes people sad!

    I think the demographics information that you have provided is particularly important. I grew up in Virginia Beach, which is fairly diverse, but it seemed that all of the stories of the students that committed or attempted suicide came from the schools that had predominantly white and affluent families attending there. I wonder if this has an…[Read more]

    This article deals with the issue of offshore drilling and how it affects particular communities. This article mainly focuses the effects of this offshore drilling on the oceanfront community off Virginia Beach […]

    • I think it’s important to understand that this is a huge issue, like you said, not only in Virginia Beach but in other coasts as well. I think a major issue a lot of the time is oil pipelines running through places. Is this offshore drilling somehow connected to oil pipelines as well? Also, I know that Virginia Beach is near a military base, and I wonder what effects the offshore drilling has on the military community and the safety of their establishments.

    This is very interesting. It seems that the entire country is swayed to the democratic side off things and this just represents that on a smaller scale. I think another issue that there might be is the lack of independent party representation as well. It’s sort of impressive that she has been the winning candidate for 20 years though.

    Paint has always been my favorite art medium. I have always been hesitant about pursuing my passion in painting because of how the art industry is overrun by digital art and it seems harder to get a job when artists simply use traditional media. It’s super exciting to hear that painting is making a comeback. Do you think this trend of popularity…[Read more]

    I am an expert in cluttering spaces as well. I collect random items and keep them because, “oh I could use it for art somehow.” I even have my neighbor’s doors from the trash in my garage. What is the weirdest thing you have kept?

    I once tried to dye my hair pink. Let’s just say that didn’t work out very well. The brand of the hair dye could have been the source of the problem. I was debating between getting Manic Panic and another brand that I ended up actually getting. I don’t remember what brand it was. It seems like I should’ve gone for Manic Panic. I guess if I every…[Read more]

    • I actually LOVED my rainbow hair. It was my favorite by far. I would love to go back to it, however, it’s pretty difficult to keep up with and not many places want employees with rainbow hair haha. I worked at a gym back home and they were not too pleased with it 🙁
