Lover of knitting, cats, and hot baths, I spent most of my childhood pretending to be British and watching and reading Harry Potter at the same time to see if I could finish reading first. Now I'm cool.
Kenyon has a lot of options when it comes to spring break. Sports teams go on tournaments, clubs lead sponsored trips for nearby adventures — or, you can venture out on your own. Instead of heading straight home for break, my sister and I decided to take the six-hour drive to Nashville, Tennessee, before roadtripping back to PA. I packaged up some of the highlights into a video (inspired by the This American Life we were listening to in the car!)
Fandango is that one night of the year for seniors where we get all dressed up and party with our professors — before spending the next 100 days hunkered down in the library in preparation for graduation.
I'm hesitant to call myself a runner. I only started a few summers ago, and it's something that I would do really intensely for a few months, and then for a few kind of forget about. This school year, however, I've found myself on a pretty steady schedule. I go to the KAC every other day, whether it's for a class or to use the weight room, and it helps me unwind and feel productive. But I never planned on doing anything more serious with it until I got an email about Happy Feet, a new half-marathon training club.
I've written about the Kenyon Reviewbefore, and since coming back to campus as their publicity intern, I've felt more connected to the KR family than ever before. Our annual holiday party was this week, and we all gathered at the home of Liz Forman '73 for cookie decorating and snowflake making and bookish presents. I made a short and sweet lil' video to hopefully get you in the (literary) spirit!
