The week after Spring Break is always great for one of my favorite pastimes at Ole Miss — people-watching. You can divide the student population into two groups by simply judging the color of their tan: those who went to the beach for a week of sun and partying, and those who went home for some R&R.

You can divide the student population into two groups by simply judging the color of their tan: those who went to the beach for a week of sun and partying, and those who went home for some R&R. 

But in addition to my people-watching routine, there is another phenomenon I always look forward to this week: an empty Turner Center.

There’s a good reason a lot of romantic comedies somehow involve Valentine’s Day. Whether people describe their situation as single, engaged, in a relationship or “it’s complicated,” the way most people treat the holiday is a little entertaining.

Well, it’s a new year and a new semester, and for me, apparently, a new addiction, and I’m not sure that I’m all that happy about it.

So, this is the new year? Well, sort of — I guess I’m a few weeks off on that.

A new year of college brings new experiences, and for those concerned with graduation, each year comes with worries about what to do in preparation for a career.

Hi, my name is Lance and I’m an addict. 

I bought my first CD when I was 8 years old and it’s only gotten worse since then. One year my New Year’s resolution was to double my music collection. I bought over 200 CDs in a 12-month period.

While in high school, Gunter Brewer walked the sidelines of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium with his father, former Ole Miss coach Billy Brewer, who directed the Rebels from 1983 to 1993. 

While in high school, Gunter Brewer walked the sidelines of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium with his father, former Ole Miss coach Billy Brewer, who directed the Rebels from 1983 to 1993.  

He remembers watching his father guide the Rebels to their first bowl game in over a decade during his first year on the job. He also remembers when his father’s 1991 squad landed Ole Miss its first New Year’s Day bowl in 22 years.

It gets earlier every year, so now, with the ringing in of the New Year, stores jump at the opportunity to stock up on us girls’ favorite thing to buy.

I am talking about swimsuits.

Target, Dillard’s, (and if you are brave enough) Victoria’s Secret — they all team up, decide to be mean and stock their shelves with skimpy, unimaginably darling swim suits that make me cringe, want to pull my hair out and run and hide behind the maternity section shelves.

The dreams of all Oxonians have finally come true: Sunday alcohol sales have been approved by both the Board of Aldermen and the state of Mississippi.

The dreams of all Oxonians have finally come true: Sunday alcohol sales have been approved by both the Board of Aldermen and the state of Mississippi.

Sunday sales does not mean every Sunday right now, but it does mean that you can go and have a drink the Sunday after a big Grove day and most holidays when they fall on the Sabbath.

After years of pleading with the Board, they switched their decision seemingly overnight and approved the sales for one reason: money.

New Year’s has passed. By now, those pesky resolutions are in full swing, and the Turner Center will be filled with people working on their spring break bodies.

New Year’s has passed. By now, those pesky resolutions are in full swing, and the Turner Center will be filled with people working on their spring break bodies.

That is, until the beginning of March, when everyone will give up and go back to their normal ways.

Hopefully this year will be different for Patrick House, winner of The Biggest Loser 10, who is coming to Oxford today.

Starting at 400 pounds, House lost 181 pounds while on the hit television show, which gave the father of two a final weight of 219 pounds.

In the aftermath of national signing day, I would like to play a simple matching game with the loyal readers of the Daily Mississippian sports page.

It is simple: Match Team A and Team B with either signing day result, One or Two.

I was shopping at Walmart the other day because I collect items made by small Guatemalan children in sweatshops, and you do too. Let’s be honest with ourselves: It is a new year, and with that comes resolutions we will probably give up by mid-March.

Mine was to be more honest.

That, and to stop writing Natalie Portman letters about how I could make an excellent stepfather to her unborn child.

1 - I’m Tired of Feeling Like Dick Clark: I have counted the first ten digits of our numeric system so often now, I think I’m starting to resemble that crypt keeper more and more every day. I know New Year’s Eve was a few weeks ago, but even now that the semester has started, he won’t stay out of my nightmares. It doesn’t help that he secretly cloned himself so that he’ll never truly miss “rocking” a New Year’s. Don’t believe me? Compare pictures of Carson Daly and Dick Clark. It cannot be unseen.

Contrary to popular belief, the snowpocalypse of 2011 did not cause school to shut down indefinitely, and we must face the music: spring semester has indeed begun.

Last year proved to be anything but a banner year for the three most popular sports on campus, causing frustration amongst fans to mount and leaving them longing for next year.

Early kickoffs, mediocre opponents and high ticket prices in the midst of a recession make it understandable that Vaught-Hemingway Stadium has not been filled to capacity yet this season.

College is a great place to expand and grow as a person.

College is a great place to expand and grow as a person.

With the oncoming fall semester there are some things that are guaranteed such as Ole Miss football, classes and new opportunities.

These opportunities provide the possibility of meeting new people and expanding one’s interest.

Some people may be looking to expand on what they have already created during previous semesters, others may be new to Ole Miss and unsure of where to get plugged in, and some may just be looking for a fresh start to a new year.
