REFLECTION: Learning it all again

May 2, 2019

This is my last column for the Stater. And I think I’m only realizing now how much that hurts. This space has been, for me, a kind of sacred space — a clearing in the woods, lush with flowers. A quiet...

REFLECTION: A life in boxes

April 28, 2019

I’ve never yet had my own apartment. It doesn’t upset me, and after living at home for a year (something chronicled in a previous column), I almost forgot it was something I’d soon have to be hunting...

PERSPECTIVE: Keep your eyes peeled

April 14, 2019

Whenever people would say — on roadtrips, Girl Scout camping excursions, hikes through the woods — “Keep your eyes peeled!” I would always grimace. It seemed to me like imagining a skinned grape,...

OPINION: Portland and the importance of public transportation

April 7, 2019

For spring break this year (Ah, a distant memory now), I traveled to Portland, Oregon, for the AWP conference — the Association of Writers and Writing Programs. On my radio show, my hosts and I, who...

REFLECTION: We were there

March 31, 2019

Every time we go somewhere as a family, I know to expect it. My mother has her phone on her at all times, and it’s mostly there to be used as a camera. (Sometimes, when she can’t find it, that’s...

OPINION: Here comes the sun

March 17, 2019

Whenever the end of March rolls around, the light glow of April just starting to peek out from behind the winter clouds, I think of The Beatles. And it’s weird, because The Beatles, generally, aren’t...

OPINION: Living ‘rent free

March 10, 2019

If you read my columns, you’ve probably gathered by now that I’m a commuter student. Like a lot of students at Kent State, instead of retiring to a dorm room on campus when the long day of classes...

OPINION: We can’t rest on our (river’s) laurels

March 3, 2019

 I’ve been closer than ever to the Cuyahoga River this semester. I never expected it to turn out this way, but when you’re an intern at the Wick Poetry Center and the 50th anniversary of the river’s...

OPINION: Let’s talk about death, baby! (and eco burials)

February 26, 2019

 I think a great way to get to know someone is to ask them how they’d like to be buried. Why waste time with an icebreaker about favorite ice cream flavors when you could just dive in to a common, shared...

OPINION: Listening isn’t about having the answers

February 17, 2019

Growing with yourself is strange. You start to understand things that a younger version of you might not have or might have overlooked entirely. Why don’t you like the beach? Well, maybe 21-year-old...

OPINION: Love in the time of PrEP

February 13, 2019

While we were sitting in the newsroom and brainstorming column ideas for this paper, Editor-in-Chief Valerie Royzman brought up an interesting topic for a Valentine’s Day edition. “You guys could write...

OPINION: The turning of a Valentine’s Day hater

February 3, 2019

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a Valentine’s Day hater. The kind of kid who would throw away her Valentine’s mailbox because it was stupid to compare who was getting the most cards. The...
