My summer treat: Driving License

21st May

Summer has already rolled in and like every year I have created a bucket list for things I would like to explore this year during summer. Though I still have two more weeks before my graduate classes end for the school year, but the excitement of exploring new places has started to occupy my mind.

Usually summer is one of my favorite seasons of all. This summer, me and my friends have decided to go on a road trip to the west coast, mainly Las Vegas and California. But to go on our road trip, we all need to have valid driver’s licenses. So among five of us, only one person has a driver’s license and the rest of us, (which includes me) were without licenses and relying on our friend for everything. Though getting a driving license is not a … Read More »



My New Job at Marathon Petroleum

14th May

Today, I started my first internship at Marathon Petroleum Corporation in downtown Findlay, Ohio. To be honest, I was a little nervous. Only because this would be my first white-collar job experience ever. Today was orientation for all new employees and summer co-op/interns. It started with a brief overview presentation of the company as a whole. The speaker talked about company employee expectations as well as certain codes of conduct. We also had to fill out some paper work and tax forms. Then a tour was given so we wouldn’t be completely lost. There is a really nice cafeteria and employee lounge area that I’m sure I will use a lot this summer. After the tour was over, my supervisor came and took me to where I’d be working. I got introduced to many new friendly co-workers and managers and … Read More »



The Important Things

Many of you have probably already heard about my brother’s motorcycle accident last week.  I am currently sitting in his room in ICU as he takes a nap.  I’ve never heard the word “lucky” so many times in my whole life, which I guess is fitting because he has it tattooed on his arm.  Words cannot describe the feeling inside when I think of where we could have been, and I’m so thankful I can hear him breathing across the room like I did when we were growing up.

This has reminded me, and I think reminded a lot of us, of what is really important in our lives.  I think we forget at times how important and short life is, and how quickly it can be taken away from us.  I began a Facebook page for Jason’s recovery so all … Read More »

It’s here and happening right now: SUMMER!

To most of OilerNation, summer means classes are over and campus feels like a ghost town. Summertime is a phrase that just sounds like easy-living with nothing to do and all day to do it. The long lazy days, beach weather, ice hitting your glass, watermelon, camp fires, traveling, sand between your toes, fireworks, BBQ, swim suits, and flip flops come to mind when I think about summer.

So what are you doing this summer? Got any big plans? If you said no, I’ve got you covered with a summer bucket list! A list of 20 ideas to add to your summer fun. Are you game? Let’s see how many you can do.

Have a water balloon fight! Depending on who’s playing, make sure you hide a squirt gun under your clothes, just in case!

Exam time!!!!!

2nd May

This is final exam week for all students at our college. It doesn’t matter how old we are; the feeling of final exam tends to remain same for all of us. For most students, final exam week tends to be seen as dreadful, period. Being a student, I always get panicked when my final exams are coming closer. Sometimes, I even get goosebumps when I think about my exams.

I remembered during my freshman year in college, I had final exams for two classes on the same day. Despite preparing well for both the classes, I was very nervous till the end of my exam. Ultimately, when my results came, I found out that I excelled in one of the class and in the other class, I scored average. I felt upset about my scores and decided to discuss with my … Read More »
