    • I totally agree that Carytown is a bit of a hike away, but it is so worth the distance! I’ve also been to Carytown a couple of times, I’ve biked every time thanks the the library that rents out bikes to students. My favorite place that I highly recommend going to is the Byrd Theatre which shows $2 dollar movies, like a picture show. The theatre is beautiful and the costs are really cheap and they show a good variety of movies. I have yet to try the ice cream from the homemade store, but I am excited to now that you’ve recommended it. I would definitely agree that Carytown is an amazing place to visit and everyone should get out there and see it!

    • Your description of Carytown makes it seem really compelling, I have not yet been and now would love to go. The way you describe it reminds me of a similar place in my hometown. It sounds like a great place to hang out with friends and spend your day. I plan on going there soon!

    • I have lived in Richmond ALL my life but I still haven’t had the chance to explore every bit of Carytown. Also since I commute, I don’t really get the time to go there after my classes end, but now I’m definitely thinking about it because I really want to try the Thai place! (I love Thai food!!!) Glad to hear you had fun exploring a new part of Richmond 🙂

    • As a Richmond native, OBVIOUSLY a huge Carytown fan. I will 100% support your suggestion to make a visit. Mom Siam’s is my favorite (and the best) Thai food in Richmond so I’m stoked you had it, and I know the ice cream HAD to be Bev’s (as it too, is the best). I always get super excited when Vcu students who are new to Richmond discover life beyond Monroe campus. I’ve had the pleasure of growing up and venturing the city before it became my college town, and I love when my fellow classmates get to experience different aspects of their new home in Richmond.

    • I really like Richmond because there is so much to discover. Richmond is full of diversity that you’ll always find something new. it amazes me how there are many different cultures within one small area.

    The fact that you’re not only able to balance balance school with sports, but also do so charismatically is something to truly be proud of. Obviously ranking so high and proving yourself to your team/coach is wonderful..but what I found to be so important was that that you ended up proving something to yourself. I liked how you said you “relaxed…[Read more]

    I think you’re post is really sweet and signifies just how difficult it is for everyone to be in a new place. Being “killed” or wiped away without any significance is such a scary part about starting over, because even though you think your life is in your hands, you see how easy it is for others to bring you down. It sounds like you had a really…[Read more]

    • Google and the internet really does leave us access to so much information at our fingertips. The only problem is that sometimes it is hard to sort through all of the garbage and spam found on the internet. It is also easier to adopt other people’s analytic views rather than creating our own. We expect everything to be available so quickly and when it’s not, it’s frustrating. So I agree, it isn’t making us stupid, but it may have a impact on our work ethic and patience.

    You’re comparison of your digital and physical identity speaks SO highly to me as I too do a bit of modeling but have no digital identity beyond that. People rarely see beyond what is in front of them, literally glaring through the screen, and will make judgements purely based off of what is presented to them. It’s extremely angering to hear…[Read more]

    Your address on the difficulty to “be the hero” brought out what I saw as one of the most crucial parts of the novel. It is so important to understand how difficult it is to break away from what is expected of you. There are so few heroes because no one wants that responsibility. I remember watching an episode of House one time, and a “hero” that…[Read more]
