It is Wednesday night and I am crawling into bed after yet another busy day. I have class from 11a.m. to 7a.m., with a lunch break in the middle and practice shortly after, which then lasts until 11pm. I come home, shower, find some food, finish (or start) my homework and before I know it, it’s 3 a.m. again. I look at my schedule for tomorrow and it isn’t any better.

Learning a new language is not easy, and as a consequence neither are its courses. Mathematics and the sciences are also languages, and language is something that one can never be fully fluent in, even for native speakers, who occasionally err orthographically and grammatically.

This year I started doing the New York Times Daily Crossword puzzle. Little did I know, this game would become a huge part of my everyday routine. If you would’ve asked me what a crossword was a year ago, I probably wouldn’t have been able to give you a concise answer. I would have told you that my dad completes them wearing his reading glasses, sitting at the kitchen table, pen held high, fixated on clues at hand. But now, my daily crossword elicits the same kind of excitement as seeing a puppy on the Diag. This sounds like the nerdiest thing, right?

The first time someone tried to sell me Adderall was in my high school library. At the time, I did not think anything of it.

For the past two years, I have researched and written about former University of Michigan President Clarence Cook Little in various capacities, examining his papers at the Bentley Historical Library and the American Philosophical Society. This past summer, I worked with a group of faculty to submit a proposal to rename the C.C.

It was a surreal Saturday. As the seconds dwindled down in what was a close, low-scoring and sloppy March Madness basketball game, Michigan vs. Florida State, the entire bar was silent. Each breath began to pulsate to the same rhythm, a hypnotic mumbled version of “The Victors,” as we watched the five sweeping flat-screen TVs with ignited interest. Then, with the realization that we were going to win — “The Wolverines are going to the Final Four!” — the bar erupted into a chaos of chants, screams, hugs, clinks of glasses and euphoric happiness.

Watching “Love, Simon” felt like arriving at a long-awaited destination. Something that I had been anticipating since my first encounter with a young adult movie, pretending that the vanilla, heterosexual leads weren’t actually heterosexual. And finally, when it manifested in the film starring actor Nick Robinson as the closeted-gay high school senior, it was everything. And still, it will never be enough.
