    Midterm Study Tips: Personal Study Techniques From One College Student to Another

    The Courage It Takes: National Coming Out Day

    When I was 13, I came to the conclusion that I identified as bisexual. I told no one but my closest friends for fear of reprisal. When I was 20, I realized that bisexual was not the right fit for me, so I came out as biromantic, which is a bi person who also identifies as asexual. I told nobody but my close friends and coworkers who I trusted. At 21, the age I am now, I realized that my sex assigned at birth was not right for me. I had experienc...

    October 6, 2018

    "I been away a long time." The last words of the iconic narrator of Ken Kesey's novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest have been on my mind the past week. This May, it will be seven years since I graduated from The University of Akron.
