Not saved by the bell: Learn from past mistakes for fresh start

“No regrets” was my motto last year, and I lived by that. Now that I look back on it, I regret getting C’s and D’s in my classes. I regret lying to all the teachers when I skipped to hang out with my friends. Those people I used to skip with aren’t even my friends anymore. I’ve come to ask myself: “what was the point?” I didn’t gain anything from slacking I did in my classes, even when I did go to them.

Unlocking music genres for masses: Piano Guys use 88 keys to create musical masterpieces

As I scroll down the web page full of music I am supposed to listen to in my lab time for piano, I come across one video that looks like it could be interesting and click it. After a few seconds of watching it, I quickly become fascinated in the music and the skill of the people performing. What’s more, I vaguely recognize the pop song these people are playing but soon quickly realize that there is classical music blended into it. When the video is finished playing, a name pops up across the top of the screen: The Piano Guys. My only thought is this is so different than anything else I’ve ever watched or listened to before. I wasn’t the only one with this fascination. All over the world, millions of people have felt the same way I did, leading the group to receive invitations to prestigious places and events such as Carnegie Hall and the presidential inauguration.

Feeling so empty, nothing left to give

There is a powerful quote in the workout and school world that states: “Your mind will quit a thousand times before your body ever will”? While that is true for some people, what happens when you’re so motivated that your body gives up first, yet your mind tells you to keep going, to keep pushing – even when that’s not the best option? How do you combat that? How do you listen to your body? How do you give yourself a day off when you’re in constant fight mode to become better and outwork everyone?

Ice ice baby: Winter Olympics dominates mainstream summer games

From blades on ice to skis on snow, the Olympic Winter games is more entertaining to me than the Summer Olympics. It could be because of my emotional attachment to them and the nostalgic value they hold, but they will always melt my cold and frozen heart every time I have a chance to watch them.

Grow-up, clean-up, show respect

If you’ve ever walked through the cafeteria after the last lunch, you’ve noticed trash littering the floors that were clean right before the stampede of students came through.
