Live from camp: Never thought journalism camp could be so much fun

I still remember the night before camp, making sure I didn’t forget anything (which I still ended up doing) and feeling a little nervous just thinking about how my first time going to camp would be.

Live from camp: A risk worth taking

On Sunday, we ate brunch, went shopping at the Mall of America, had dessert at Cafe Latte, and ended the night with an episode of “America’s got Talent.” It was, overall, a pretty decent work-free day

Live from camp: Nervousness has faded away

I’ll admit that coming into this camp I was a bit nervous. My family and I loaded the car, buckled our seatbelts, drove for a half-an-hour, and pulled up to the University of St.

12 Weeks to Fitness: Good grades vs. good health


I have three finals, a group presentation, two tests and a five-page paper due all in one week. If I don’t do well, it may be my last days in St. Thomas because I could lose my scholarship. Because school is important to me, I am putting school over my health at the moment.

12 Weeks to Fitness: Concerns after surgery checkup

In week 4 of my blog, I talked about the surgery I had on my back to help me improve my overall health and fitness. This month, I had my check up with Dr. Polly and this is what I found out. The tumor that was in my spine was not fully removed; however, he assured me that the procedure was done in a way that will give me the bone support that I need. I didn’t like this news personally because I don’t want the tumor to grow again, which would mean it would set me back from my health goal of being entirely healthy and cause me pain as it did before.

12 Weeks to Fitness: Is counting calories healthy?


I don’t understand why people think that just counting calories and not exercising will help them lose weight. Do these same people think that two trips to McDonald’s are healthy as long as they stay under their calorie limit?
