Megan Irving’s Successful Steps to an All-Nighter

How are you today, reader? Good, I hope. How am I? Well, I’m touched you asked because I am exhausted. I assume you know what an all-nighter is. A night, normally spent by a student, working on a large project, paper or study session. Unless you are Martha Stewart-level organized, you will experience an all-nighter in college.

PRIME REAL ESTATE ON LOWER EAST SIDE!

Meet Christian!

What’s charming, exotic and fun all over? It’s new Hawk Talk blogger Christian Grotewold. I got the chance to sit down and talk to Christian about what makes him so absolutely amazing. Just by looking at Christian you can tell this guy is in the know. On our first meeting he was wearing a very cool, Fashion’s Night Out t-shirt.
