What It Feels Like To Be In Love

What It Feels Like To Be In Love

Filed under What It Feels Like

Love is hard to describe. I never dated in high school. I only ever dated when I got to college, and even then it was still meaningless to me. Sure, I would like a girl and enjoy her company, but I had never loved a girl I’d dated. I’d never experienced anything beyond the love you feel for ...

Cum laude is a Latin term that means, “with honor.” Usually, it refers to college students who graduate with high academic achievements; however, a variation was esta...

The title of Editor-in-Chief is one that holds a lot of opportunities for success, but equally as many opportunities for failure. While it may seem as if being the boss only earns you privileges, more often than not, it only earns us criticism. When you’re expected to be the best of the best, failure...

Softball has been in my family for many generations, so I was bound to be involved in it one way or another. My dad coached college softball, my mom was an assistant coach in college, my sister played travel and high school ball and my uncle is even in the Illinois Hall of Fame for coaching with over 500...

Rachel Beckman I have never played soccer before, besides the casual passing along the shoreline at the beach and family party backyard games. When I was asked to participate in the Tom Tom Tries event, I was pretty laid back in response, saying that I would love to be a part of the Varsity girls...

John Petty Being an Iron Man is more than just a title. Playing multiple sports holds meaning to this Sequoit and his family. Playing three sports to me is less about the sports by themselves, but more so what they represent. Ever since I was little, my dad had me playing and trying new things all...

When I think of my ideal self, I don’t have any weaknesses. I think that goes to say for everyone else, too. When I think of being weak, I think of being insecure. I think of being the kind of person that gets pushed around and walked all over. But most of all, I can’t help but imagine what my poten...
