When the clocks turn back on Sunday, I celebrate the extra hour of sleep — until the sun goes down at what feels like the middle of the afternoon. It is easy to fall into a slump during this time of year, so here are a few ways to find some extra happiness in the midst of the darkest days of the year.
I find so much peace and solitude in turning on one of my favorite shows in the midst of a busy day. The ability to take my mind off the exams, assignments and projects that plague a typical semester is something very precious to me. The best part is that TV shows are something you can have on in the background while taking care of a different task. It is my hope that there is something for everyone on this list of comfort watches. In my opinion, comfort watches can be anything you enjoy that allows you to step back from the things on your mind — even if the content of the show itself is not necessarily comfortable.
As we trudge through midterm-season, I am sure students have had their fair share of moments in class — sometimes a little cliche — where they simply wanted to rip their hair out, me included. These are a few tried and tested classroom phrases that uniquely irk me each time I hear them. But now as an upperclassman, I’ve learned that it’s not too hard to sit through, because at the end of the day, we can all commiserate — and laugh — together. Next time you hear one of these in class, know that students across majors and disciplines are probably all feeling the same way.

This summer I spent a month in London, and I learned a lot about the city, literature and theater, but, the most valuable takeaway was a newfound confidence in myself to be adaptable and have fun in new — and sometimes stressful — situations.
Take It Away, a long-standing Corner staple which opened in 1992, is home to a warm collection of smiling faces, customizable sandwiches, delectable house dressing and a beautiful variety of chips and drinks. Sandwiches are one of my favorite foods — they remind me of being at home in Virginia Beach, sitting on the beach and eating my favorite Taste Unlimited sandwich. When I first started at the University, I was in desperate need of a sandwich that compared to the ones I know and love at home. Take It Away has gone above and beyond to satisfy this need in my life with an unmatched turkey sandwich and an upbeat atmosphere that makes me feel welcomed every time I order.

As we enter the thick of the semester, we all need to prioritize finding escapes from studying. One of my favorite study breaks is scrolling through TikTok.

Cheers to the highs and lows of being a first-year student — it is one unique journey.
There is a huge difference between waking up at 7 a.m. to go to class versus waking up early because you want to — I know I will be savoring the opportunity to dictate my morning alarms this summer. Instead of my alarm blaring in my dorm room and scrambling to get to class, summer is the ideal time to wake up slowly, sip your coffee, watch the news and start your day on a much more peaceful note. I will not be sad to bid farewell to the early alarms and bitterly cold walks to class that constituted the majority of my first year.
