10 Things to Look Forward to This Summer

Dear Reader, So right about now I am drowning in homework, projects and papers. I can't deal with finals right now. Plus, have you seen the sky. It's blue and wonderful. There's a light breeze and I can feel the summer wind making its way toward us. I need something to look forward to after finals. Summer. What exactly am I talking about? I'm happy you asked: 1.

10 Things You Will Do Instead of Preparing For Finals

Dear Reader, Do you hear it? In the distance, the faintest sound of fear. The smell of frustration. The emails piling up in  your inbox about deadlines, presentation schedules, and summer job acceptances. (or lack there of.) Finals are right around the corner. *Gulp* But, who wants to worry about finals. Not me, that's for sure. I have a sneaking suspicion you don't want to either. I also have a sneaking suspicion of the things you'll...

Over the Hill: 5 Signs You’ve Hit Your College Life Crisis

Dear Reader, So, we're back. A new semester and a new group of HawkTalk bloggers. I think this year's team is one of our best yet, and I highly suggest you check out their new blogs as soon as you're done reading this.

As some of you may know, I've been with HawkTalk since I was a freshman,...

Summer Lovin’ (Or Lack There Of)

Dear Reader, We made it to June! Can you believe finals were over a month ago? Summer is shooting by, and who can blame it? When your biggest obligations are a camp counselor job and a math class at the local community college, summer's possibilities feel practically endless. Perhaps I'll take a spontaneous road trip.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling HawkTalkers

Dear Reader, You know it has been practically a year since we last talked. To quote Willie Nelson, "ain't it funny how time slips away?" I know my year was full of internship milestones, caffeine fueled all-nighters and more essays than I can count.
