The typical week for a college student is hectic. Between class, working, clubs and meetings, the extra duties of an activist are not easy. Chronic stress can manifest into unhealthy physical and emotional symptoms. Examples include feelings of worthlessness, poor digestion, excessive or a lack of sleep, eating problems, depression, muscle tension and exhaustion. At times, it feels like the world is a constant stream of negativity, thus it can be easy to forget self-care.

The past few months have brought a widespread trend of featuring movies about popular serial killers. In November, “My Friend Dahmer” was released where Ross Lynch portrayed a young Jeffrey Dahmer. “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” is a biopic about Ted Bundy.

The New Jefferson Market: Expectation vs. Reality

Bella Pennese | Lifestyle Staff Writer | ip033116@ohio.edu

Jefferson Market truly exceeds expectations. Out of laziness, I’ve spent my first weeks here on campus not venturing very far from my dorm hall when it comes to getting meals- usually walking the ten feet it takes to get from Crawford Hall to Nelson Market. I thought the market there was pretty nice, but I did not expect to find the vast  possibilities offered by Jeff Market when decided to venture over there.
