Get out there and take a chance

There’s no way you can’t feel weird when you leave somewhere that you’ve called home for the past three months.Driving back to North Carolina from New Orleans last weekend was definitely surreal.I was coming “home,” but I was also leaving the city that I’d grown accustomed to.

Semester goes by in the blink of an eye

Sometimes time seems to pass incredibly slowly.When you’re sitting in that class that you hate, staring at the clock tick by on the wall for 50, or if you’re really unfortunate, 75 minutes, you feel as if you’re glued to that seat forever.Everybody feels this way sometimes — no matter what your job is or how you spend your time.

Abundant options exist after Carolina

Most seniors find their final year in college to be a mixed bag. Senior year brings with it three years of Chapel Hill know-how so that you can spend your last months of college doing what you most enjoy and with whomever you want. But it’s also your last big dance.It’s your last Halloween on Franklin Street and your last season to enjoy Carolina vs. Duke basketball games as a student.Senior year is fun. But it’s also complex enough without having to stress out about what you’ll be doing with your life a year from now.

There’s no place like home on the Hill

While talking to a friend just over a week ago about her Fall Break plans, I walked over to my calendar.We were, indeed, already well into October.My internship in New Orleans was already halfway over.I decided at that moment to take my own Fall Break — one home to North Carolina for an extended weekend.Going home for a few days made me realize why I love North Carolina, Chapel Hill in particular, so much.For one thing, it was actually fall when I crossed into North Carolina last Thursday.

Here’s to unity through good eats

One day last week, I received a message from one of my friends telling me that she and two of our other friends had picked up Mellow Mushroom in Durham for dinner.I was SO jealous — that pizza is killer. There are good pizza places in New Orleans too, but nowhere that I’d drive 20 minutes each way for without a second thought. Then, a few nights ago, another friend texted me that she had just gotten home from The Loop.And their Oreo milk shake had been excellent, per usual.My response : “GO PLAY IN TRAFFIC.”

Finding familiar places in a new city

Last Saturday at 8:30am, I sat in Starbucks sipping on a vanilla latte while talking to the intern who held my position at the Young Leadership Council last spring and summer. As we waited for our coffee to be brewed and poured into boxes for the group to drink at the 9 a.m. YLC volunteer event, we got on the subject of how living in New Orleans compared to other cities we’d called home.Erin, the YLC’s prior intern and a 2008 Loyola University graduate, had moved to New Orleans from Arizona and said the two places were strikingly different.

Trying out the ‘real world’

Before moving into their freshman dorm, most college students are already dreaming about their senior year. Your final year in college is the last few months before you start the rest of your life. Otherwise known as the “real world,” the rest of your life entails having to do adult things like work and pay bills — all the things required and expected of a responsible post-college human being.

'Cuckoo's Nest' to give audiences inside look

CORRECTION: Due to a reporting error, this story incorrectly identified the play's character who illegally stages a fishing trip and ward drinking party. The character was Randle McMurphy. The Daily Tar Heel apologizes for the error. Everyone has seen the wiseguy anti-hero rebel against the establishment in some form or another. And in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," this hero is a flamboyant, recently admitted patient in a mental hospital.
