Addiction: Spotify

by Corie February 5, 2014

Spotify is for sure my new addiction in life. Thanks to my best friend Erica. I use to be a loyal Pandora user, but I found my love elsewhere. Spotify is just perfect; it fits everyone’s music needs. I have multiple playlists. Anything from Frank Sinatra to System of a Down. Some of my playlists [...]

by Corie February 3, 2014

January is over! I can’t believe it! This semester is going to go by so fast just because I have so much to do. This semester is the start to my senior year of college. I feel like I just graduated high school not that long ago. It has only been a month in and [...]

It’s Thanksgiving Not Christmas.

by Corie December 2, 2013

Thanksgiving break was much needed. I needed time with my family, time away from Clayton and time away from school. I did not go home for break, but I went to North County to spend time with all my extended family. My parents are the odd balls that are still in Illinois. I love Thanksgiving. [...]

On Saturday night was my first experience of STL Up Late. The best way to explain it is that it is a STL version of SNL. I believe they have shows every saturday night. If you get a chance I highly recommend it! It is only $10. So it is an affordable thing to do [...]

Halloween Is Almost Here!

by Corie October 28, 2013

Griffins! Halloween is this week and I am so excited! Halloween is my favorite holiday. Though, I am sadly too old to go get candy from door-to-door but I can still have fun. I am sure a lot of college students will be dressed in costumes at some random house for a party, but not [...]

Is It Winter Break Yet?

by Corie October 25, 2013

I am so ready for winter break like you would not believe. I have been stressed probably since week 4 or 5. Luckily I dedicate Thursday nights to go out with friends and unwind. Since I am not from St. Louis it is interesting to go to different places downtown. The experience is great and [...]

Just My Luck.

by Corie October 20, 2013

Hey  Griffin Nation! Did you enjoy the beautiful fall weather this weekend? I sure did! That is until I dropped my phone and the screen shattered and now I am without a phone. It took me three hours to get a hold of my mom to let her know what happened. I was so frustrated [...]
