Year in Review

I would say that I have largely enjoyed my first year at OSU. I have taken many interesting classes, had several fun experiences, and met many amazing new people. One of my favorite classes that I have taken so far is a theatre class. The class is very fun and my teacher genuinely cares about all the students and is very engaging. One thing he told me that I find very important is to not always worry about end results – things go better when you live in the moment. Outside the classroom, one of the most important things I believe I have learned is to not eat unseasoned Quaker Instant Oatmeal! I will make sure to keep this in mind for the next ENR Scholars camping trip. Something I learned about myself this year is that no matter what happens to me, I always find a way to make things work in the end. Giving up has never been my thing and hopefully it never will be. One of my favorite memories from this past year is when I went for a run for the first time in months and was told “You don’t need to run” by twenty one pilots soon after. twenty one pilots is one of my absolute favorite bands and I find it incredible that they unintentionally (or maybe not) said the perfect thing at the perfect moment. Next year I am looking forward to living on a different part of campus, meeting more new people, and making more amazing memories with ENR Scholars. I really hope the rest of my years at OSU are as great as this one!

Spring Break Review

This year’s spring break was largely uneventful; having been at work over the past few months, what I really wanted to do was rest. The day after I came home from OSU, I went to an Indian restaurant I had not been to in a while, Amma’s Kitchen, for lunch. Amma’s Kitchen has a lunch buffet, so I took small helpings of various Indian dishes. While my favorite Indian restaurant is Brij Mohan, I find Amma’s Kitchen’s food delicious as well. After lunch, I got my yearly haircut, a three-inch trim. For dinner, I had takeout from Brij Mohan. It was sarson ka saag, a curry made from mustard greens that I had never had before. I found its taste a bit unusual at first, but eventually I began to enjoy it. However, I did not enjoy getting sick the very next day! I believe that I either got food poisoning from the takeout or just came down with a stomach virus. I spent the rest of spring break recovering from my illness and soon enough, I felt ready to come back to OSU. I am looking forward to finishing up the last few weeks of this semester nicely!
