I’ve decided to try and start a new series called On My Radar. Credit goes out to The College Prepster for the idea. These posts will consist of interesting links, articles, videos, pictures, etc. that I find throughout the week.
It’s been a great week. On top of working, I’ve been reading about all kinds of interesting topics, and I even got to see a play this week. Here are some of the top things that are on my radar this week:
ONE // “Dear Campus Speak & Sara Lowery: Are We on ‘Punk’d’?” by Niki Messmore
This great article by a staff member (the wonderful and amazing Niki Messmore) at my Alma Mater. Basically, it states that people who are experiencing homelessness are not an example “to educate college students on leadership skills.” It was written in response to an email she received advertising a program where a student affairs professional does just that. Read it. It’s excellent.
ONE & 1/2 // “Am I a Jerk for Critiquing CAMPUSPEAK and Their Speaker?“ by Niki Messmore
If you enjoyed reading Niki’s first article, make sure you check out the follow-up. It’s just as excellent, if not more so. Let me know what you think about both in the comments, or just comment on her page and let her know.
ONE & 3/4 // “Follow Up with Campus Speak” by Niki Messmore
Niki contacted Campus Speak and they came to an agreement of sorts, but it’s not everything that it should be. Good to hear about them following up.
Thursday night, my mom and I went to see Clark Gable Slept Here, performed by the Phoenix Theatre. It was a good show with an interesting message. I’m currently drafting a post on it, so you’ll hear more about it later. UPDATE! Here’s the post.
THREE // Bluegrass (and clean) Version of Anaconda by Postmodern Jukebox
This is one of the strangest and most interesting things I’ve come across this week. It’s a cleaned-up version of Nicki Minaj’s song Anaconda set old-fashioned bluegrass style. I love her voice.
FOUR // “50 Fun, Cheap Dates To Make Fall Your Most Memorable Season Ever” by Chrissy Stockton on the Thought Catalog
I think my favorite one I want to try with my husband would be number 25: “Bundle up and bring a few blankets and drive to somewhere you’ll be able to see the stars. Spend the night talking and trying to identify as many constellations as you can.” What’s yours?
