Hanging by a string
Working through problems one note at a time
Corruption. Revenge. Deception. Ambition. Loyalty. Suffering. Greed. Lust. Love. Temptation. Guilt. Jealousy. Judgment. Conflict. Manipulation. Betrayal… No I’m not talking about any of Shakespeare’s sonnets. I’m talking about an average day in my life.
Tales from a surviving freshman
All the scoop
In 3 weeks, I will wrap up my first year at college. The weather is growing hotter, my motivation is growing smaller, and my final exams are growing closer.
Are we helping or hurting?
Let’s take a look.
“Great!” I see the handicap sign leading me to a ramp. “Oh wait, I have to go around.”
Half of the building later, I finally reach that ramp, but then there are no automatic doors on the side of the building. What do I do?
eBooks versus traditional textbooks
Which side are you on?
Universities across the United States are switching from traditional, hardback textbooks for eBooks. An eBook is, obviously, an electronic form of a textbook that students can open on a computer, tablet, or smart phone. While eBooks are all-the-rage here lately, the Ram Page staff had varying views on whether or not ASU should jump on board with other1 comment
universities and switch over to eBooks.
I found a man: tall, white and fluffy
This is our friend, Roscoe. He is a ram. We hung out last Saturday on the sand volleyball court outside of Centennial Village and soaked up some Vitamin D. In these pictures, it looks like he is plotting to kill me, but that’s just the way his face looks.
Family over island parties any, and every day
To a number of students spring break equals partying and getting wild and drunk on an island, but I have realized that spending quality time with my family is more important. I have never been interested in the friendly bonding trips, maybe because I stayed to myself for so long.
Is it really fear?
Or only in our mind?
Public speaking seems to be a horror for everyone. The fact that Communication 2301 (aka Public Speaking) is a requirement for every student on campus makes it even scarier. Why is public speaking such a big deal? The fear we have of talking in front of others is just in our mind.1 comment
Two worlds and cultures collide
Oh, Lord. She is going to shoot herself in the foot and hate America, and it will be all my fault… My roommate Woonyoung, a foreign exchange student from Seoul, South Korea, stood in front of me with a .22 rifle in hand. My dad hovered over her, talking in a calm, relaxed voice that comes with teaching gun safety for over 40 years.
Is this musical Déjà Vu?
People often tell me I tend to “geek out” when it comes to music, whether it is at a concert, on my iPod, or marching with the Ram Band. I have a tendency to listen to a song and think, “Wait a minute that sounds like...” and find scary similarities between two songs that have no relation between them.
