Flu Shot Fair Tomorrow!

The beginning of flu season used to be a tricky time for me. I would catch sight of the first telltale pink nose and the sound of a croaky voice complaining of body aches, and turn into a different person. Suddenly, I would begin to glance suspiciously at the student who coughed behind me in…

And here comes the midterms…

It’s that time of year again.  The leaves are changing (in places other than NYC, where you can actually see trees) and Liz’s place has an assortment of pumpkin spice lattes.  Oh, and midterms are happening.  Midterms are a stressful time, but just how stressful they become depends a lot on how you handle it….

Some tips may not feel accessible to everyone (such as “spending money on other people”), but most tips are free and seem pretty mood-boosting. I’ll confess that I found the list a little stressful in its length and…

It’s been way too hard finding new ways to spice up fruits and vegetables and way too easy to forget about getting the right amount. I always default to oranges, grapes…
