Spartan resolve

MSU News - January 10, 2018 - 11:06am
Lose weight. Stop procrastinating. Spend less money. Get organized. Travel. Work out. Find a new job. Eat more bacon. Those are just some of the common resolutions that people make on Jan. 1 each year. (The bacon one might be mine, but I know I'm not alone.) I can tell by the massive hordes of people swarming around my gym that it is certainly the time for new declarations and goals. Some people swear by New Year's resolutions while others resolve not to make any. I don't have a hard and fast rule about them. I think I'm constantly making changes in my life so if a new year offers a chance to reflect and set a few more goals, I'm all for it. For the first bit of the new year, I was just striving to not get frostbite when I went outside. I don't mind the winter, but when my face hurts and the hair in my nose freezes, I could use with a little more warmth. I have already been going to the gym quite a bit, but I do have my sights set on diversifying my workouts. My friend gave me an awesome book with some suggestions about approaching life that I plan on following.

Carson Yenchar: What college has taught me (thus far!)

MSU News - January 10, 2018 - 9:40am
My first semester of college is coming to an end, and let me just say, it was pretty insane! Homework, studying, getting to class on time, even eating at the right time! I didn't think I'd make it this far, to be honest, but I'm thankfully still in one piece. I have already learned so much from just this one semester of school, and I think it is important that we all remember these things too.
