“Oh my gosh! That looks so complicated! You are so smart; I could never do that.” These are often the responses I get when my friends look at my computer while I’m doing my homework. But, the truth is, my homework really isn’t that complicated. Sure, the lines of code may look intimidating, but if you were to see a male student coding on his computer in the library, would you think he were exceptional? Or would you think he were a genius? No, you wouldn't.

It’s gameday, and I walk into a tailgate and am immediately handed a beer — a substance that would shut down all my internal organs from just a sip. All my friends have pre-gamed the pre-game, and I know it’s just the security guards and me who are sober right now. I love to dance and have fun with my friends, but I can’t help but feel as if I am missing out on something so essential to the college experience: drinking.

For individuals struggling with mental health, everything life throws at them during college doesn't exactly help.

I opened my computer last Monday night and saw so many posts with #MeToo. Curious about what it was all about, I turned to Google. On Oct.

Students in high school dream and breathe every waking moment about going away to college. In high school, students can feel stuck in a rut: same friends, same teachers, same homework, same pressure from peers to get good grades and from parents to ace ACT or SAT, same competition from seemingly every student to get into the top schools. But in the distance, there is that exciting college scene, where we can go out, hang out, hook up, experiment with drugs and alcohol — all without any supervision, no parents to be accountable to.

After moments of impact, when experiencing a situation of uncomfortableness and physical unawareness, our thoughts directly affect our personal perspective on the world around us.

When school is finally out and summer arrives, I often find myself browsing the latest trends. However, this summer I got a “real world” office job and, instead of looking for high-waisted shorts and tanks, I found myself looking for blazers and dress pants. After spending a small fortune on clothes that made me feel uncomfortable and look like a box, I thought it would be worth it. I had to look professional, right?

When I was younger, I played every sport you would expect a young kid to. From swimming to tennis to dance to softball, I had all the bases covered. I was never the best at any of them, but these activities made me happy. When I graduated from fifth grade, I found myself becoming more interested in the performing arts than sports. I was in every school play and won several state titles in prose debate competitions: a piece of dramatic interpretation performed in eight minutes.

“You write for the Daily, so you want to go into journalism, right?” is a question I am often asked. And the answer is no … well … kind of. The answer is that I don’t even know. What I do know is that I enjoy the Daily, and it is something I am passionate about.

The day I was accepted to the University of Michigan, I thought all my problems were solved. I had been admitted to a top public school and knew I would get an education that would help me to grow in a productive way. At first, I was not sure if I was going to get in, and I felt reassured reading my acceptance letter. I never thought of myself as the top of my class. I could never get by just by reading over the study guide, and I always had to work hard to do well. That is why when I was accepted to this elite university, I was in awe and excited for the four years to come.
