I would recommend this type of activity to anyone who is living in a dorm/apartment on a low budget.

Save the Date

Did you know that February 28th is Denis Burkitt Day? This “holiday” commemorates the birthday (in 1911) of a dietary fiber advocate and cancer researcher.

The Olympics

Last night, I almost fell off the treadmill at the Weinstein Center gym.  I stumbled, slid awkwardly for a few milliseconds on the belt, made some distress noises, then managed to regain my footing, if not my sense of composure and dignity.

Snow Day

It’s 11am on a Thursday and I’m sitting in my kitchen in my bathrobe.  For the first time in four years, I have a college snow day.  Classes are canceled for the entire day, which means that I get to procrastinate on homework and watch movies, never leaving the comfort of my fuzzy slippers and warm apartment.

I am a junior majoring in biochemistry. I chose Richmond because it is a small community with well-rounded academics and unique opportunities. My hobbies and interests range from reading the Sunday comics to running and playing violin. I am a member of a local Lutheran church and am a member of the Intervaristy Christian Fellowship chapter on campus. As a science major, I do research in the biology department. My favorite television show has always been the Simpsons; my favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavor is “Half-Baked;” and my celebrity idol is Julia Child. Two weird facts about me: I can ride a unicycle and I love Volvo station wagons.  Cooking is a major part of my life, and my current career goal is to become a food writer or food scientist.
