When in Athens... Wait What Should I Do?

Where I come from, kids usually learn to drive tractors before learning to ride bikes. You can’t walk down the street without someone asking if you need a ride, and using the phrase “sex education” usually causes a local to blush. Yes, I come from Small Town America, more specifically Orrville, Ohio, and to me Ohio University was an eye-opener. It did not take long for OU to give me the wake-up call that most of us need to enjoy the ride — I am definitely not in Kansas anymore. Athens is no New York City, but there’s plenty of material here for me to make a list of ten signs that told me I was in a whole new world.

Life Lessons from Melissa: When giving thanks, remember why we're here

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There is football, my dad’s “eating pants,” food, my “eating pants” and jellied cranberry sauce (which is delicious but not really food). It is a day full of family, laughter and snide remarks about my family that result in laughter and naps.

Take It Personally: We must think proactively to be a part of globe

The end of fall quarter brings a fairly universal feeling to the Ohio University campus. We push through these last few hectic weeks with the finish line — an absurdly long holiday break — close in mind. I’d challenge anyone to find a student on campus today that doesn’t feel overwhelmed with finals week fast approaching.

Life Lessons From Melissa: Going against the grain can pay off in future

Throughout my time at The Post, I have been called many unflattering things: stereotypical, crazy, classist (ouch), and disappointing just to name a few. Well, being that most of these insults came from emails and letters early in my columnist career, I was admittedly discouraged.

Between the Lines: Athens football victory a night to never forget

It’s 10:43 on Friday night and I am trying to find words to define what this means. 24-21. First undefeated football season in school history. First outright league title since 1968. First win over archrival Nelsonville since 2003. A home playoff game this Friday. One of the highest attendances in Basil Rutter Field history. However you look at it, this day is local sports history.

A stranger here myself: Society's overconsumption a symbol of sloth

Think for a minute — a few if you need the time — about how much you require to function each day. I’m talking about raw trash that served you temporarily, things sent to a landfill for the rest of their days. How many of those things were in your hands for only a matter of minutes?
