For my junior year, I decided to make the move to an off campus apartment instead of staying in the dorms. Other than having my own bedroom, the biggest perk is that I have a full kitchen now. No more two foot mini-fridge and nonexistent freezer. The transition from having a meal plan to cooking for yourself can be challenging, but it is certainly fun to learn how to cook. However there are some downsides as well, like the fruit flies that seem to never go away or last week's dinner rotting in your fridge.

Middle and high school are notorious for being difficult. Changing bodies and expectations have been the inspiration for many books, movies and TV shows. These tough times of life have been stereotyped and turned humorous. Bullying in middle school and high school has been considered normal- almost a rite of passage in modern America.

Do people describe you as an over-achiever? Do you strive for perfection? Are your friends amazed by your organizational abilities and timeliness? These traits describe people with “Type A” personalities. People who exhibit type A personalities tend to be very well on top of things, but having this sort of personality actually raises your risk of cardiovascular (heart) disease later in life, as proven by research done a few years ago.

With the warm weather and colorful leaves starting to dwindle it can only mean one thing…winter is coming! Not everyone shares the same enthusiasm about freezing temperatures, but when snow finally comes new outdoors activities are possible! Skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, and snowshoeing are just a couple. UNH is in a perfect location for winter sports because Durham is only 1 hour – 1.5 hours away to the closest ski mountain! College Woods and other UNH affiliated land, such as Kingman Farm, are great places to go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.

Almost everyone knows someone that acts like they are dying when they have a couch and a sore throat. Perhaps it is you that complains continuously about your runny nose. Have you noticed that these people tend to be sick more often or for longer periods of time?

Many people have the incorrect notion that you can’t find fresh vegetables and produce in the winter months that provide nutritious salads and other main dishes. Luckily, that idea could not be farther from the truth. In fact, many farmers are preparing right now for upcoming winter farmer’s markets in these next few months.

It’s tough to stay in shape. As college students, we are committed to our education and clubs, and we want to spare some time for fun too.  Even when we find the spare minutes to fit in some physical activity, it’s incredibly easy to come up with any excuse not to work out. It’s cold, it’s early, it’s raining, my knee hurts… Well, you know. The list goes on. But what if your workout was actually fun, and you were surrounded by your friends the whole time? That’s one reason why group fitness classes are superbly beneficial in helping busy people stay in shape.

It's officially finals time! We're at the last stretch of our semester, but for most of us, the hardest part of our semester. I don't know whose idea it was to make the hardest part of our year the part where we are all mentally exhausted, but we just need to man up and get it done.

Today is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities! Today is dedicated to those who have both visible and non-visible disabilities. These students, no matter how severe the ailment, can have a hard time doing well on exams and completing work on time. This day is a great way to show them that they can achieve all they wish to achieve despite their disability.
