While my decorating tastes did anything
but achieve any sort of mood or cohesion,
my place felt like me and it felt like my first
home away from home.
College means decorative independence,
among other liberations. You can break free
from your parents’ refined Tuscan interior
and furniture that’s more for looks than
function, and let your personality shine...as
far as your college-student budget allows.
This hindrance might lead to walls of
tissue snowflakes, but there are solutions to
affordably achieving your dream space. To
learn more about budget-savvy decorating
and how other students do up their homes,
check out Alex’s story on page eight.
Many moves later (seven to be exact),
my eclectic bedroom is a thing of the past.
With all the moving throughout college, I’ve
sort of been forced to filter through what I
own, leaving behind treasures like the neon
rug, “The OC” cast and overabundance of
photos. However, I do remain an advocate
of year-round Christmas lights and I still
have Bumble.
An oversized fuzzy neon tennis ball
rug stuck out next to my bed, Christmas
lights lined the walls, a stuffed abominable
snowman named Bumble rested on the
dresser, my high school love for “The OC”
displayed itself in poster form on the door, a
Colorado state flag hung above my bed and
there was no shortage of gaudily framed
photos of friends and family.
In the living room, a slew of snowflakes
cut from tissue paper made it appear
as though a first grade arts and crafts
class terrorized our wall. A giant world
map sprinkled with cutouts of our heads
representing where we had traveled hung
next to the cheap tissue flakes.
No mom to decorate, no money to go on
a shopping spree at IKEA or Pottery Barn,
and sure as hell no feng shui: this was my
first college apartment.

KANSAS IN HEAT // ENDING A CASUAL RELATIONSHIP
> Tackling the sticky world of relationships.
KJHK Caller Asks:
I’ve been in a casual sexual relationship with
this girl for about four months. Two months ago,
we decided that all either of us wanted was
casual sex. I have grown weary of it though and
I am ready to move on. What is the appropriate
way to end this affair? Can it be done over
e-mail? The phone? Or does having slept with
her for four months earn this woman the right to
be “broken up” with in person?
Michelle Answers:
Casual sex relationships are great in theory.
In reality, these relationships can produce
unwanted anxiety or feelings in confict with
your prenegotiated terms. In your case, confict
surrounds your decision to break things off.
If the relationship is 100 percent casual
with no feelings or expectations attached, and
you have no plans to see her again, why go
through any “break up” plan? Respond to her
next suggestion of sex with a polite, “No, I’m no
longer interested.”
Unfortunately for you, I don’t get the feeling
your relationship is as void of emotional
attachment as you lead me to believe. The
simple fact you are in confict about how
to end this affair suggests you or your sex
buddy developed some attachment. From your
description of the situation, I get the impression
you are leery of the feelings she might be
developing.
I understand you set boundaries but casual
relationships never remain 100 percent free
from emotion. Now, you must give her the
heave-ho in a respectful way. Try a phone
call or a polite, but brief face-to-face meeting.
She showed you some good times, right? Exit
the relationship with class and respect. In the
future, think twice before entering into another
“casual” sex relationship.

turn me off. I am a very positive person and
I am not looking for someone to bring me
down.
Notices frst: Seeing someone else smile
always makes me smile. Frowning is just
ugly!
Hates when people: Use words like
“their,” “there,” and “they’re” incorrectly.

your day a better one.
It’s not uncommon for high school girls to
want to date an older guy. This was true for
Jesse Dowell, a sophomore from Lawrence.
She frst noticed Winston Heilman, a junior
from Lawrence, in high school band and choir.
“Everyone knew him because he was tall,
handsome, funny and friends with everyone,”
Dowell says.
It wasn’t until Dowell’s junior and Heilman’s
senior year that they became friends when
Heilman asked Dowell to be in his choir variety
show, “Encore.” The song he was auditioning
for was “The Coffee Song.” That same year
their choir went to Disney World, where Dowell
realized her feelings for Heilman. He waited for
the bus to leave the park before giving her a
fower.
When the two returned home, things stayed
steady until Heilman asked Dowell to his senior
prom. After prom and into the summer, the two
continued spending time together, even after
Heilman came to the University of Kansas.
Heilman liked Dowell but was reluctant
to start a relationship right before leaving for
college. It wasn’t until winter break of that year
that the two became offcial.
That was almost two years ago. “He is still
the tall, handsome, funny, kind, and loving guy
I’ve known since high school,” Dowell says.
“And my best friend.”

The hard truth about time management is
that sometimes something must go. Even on
those hectic days, when time just isn’t on your
side, an effective workout is possible. Amber
Long, assistant director of ftness for KU rec-
reation services, says the recommended 30
minutes of daily exercise can be broken into
10 minute increments and still be benefcial.
Circuit training, where a routine of resistance
training exercises and high-intensity aerobics
are done with little rest between them, is an
effective way to work out in a short period of
time, Long says.
Lifestyle changes, like parking farther
away and walking or taking the stairs instead
of the elevator, raises your heart rate without
adding time to your schedule. “Be aware of
how to effciently use your body and muscles
during the day. When you sit in a chair, focus
on using your muscles like you’re doing a
squat,” Long says.
Lauren Nelson, a senior from Lawrence,
tries to exercise for an hour twice a week al-
though she admits it doesn’t always happen.
“Even if it’s just for a half hour or twenty min-
utes, I fgure it’s better than nothing,” Nelson
says. She says it helps to write out a schedule
for her workouts. “If I actually write it down in
my planner like everything else, then it seems
like an activity I can’t skip,” she says.

Madelynne Lockhart uses her Nivea lip
balm at least twice a day when her lips begin to
feel dry. She knows exactly where she keeps
her lip balm too – one at her desk and one in
her purse.
Lockhart, a sophomore from Cedar Rapids,
Iowa, says she’s tried numerous lip balms, but
Nivea is the only one that makes her lips feel
soft and full of moisture.
People question if lip balm can be addic-
tive, drying and even harmful if consumed.
Over-the-counter lip balms tend to be hydrat-
ing and, of course, we like shiny, lubricated
lips, which is why we buy them, says Dr. Marti
Byers, M.D., CLS at MedCosmetic in Overland
Park. Lips become dry out naturally because of
the continuous eating and washing we do, she
says.
It is important to maintain the texture, tone
and thickness of our lips because as we age,
the bone, skin, and fat begin to thin, Byers
says.
A lip balm with petroleum, which moistur-
izes the skin, and sunscreen, preferably an SPF
of 30 to protect against UVA rays, are needed
to keep your lips healthy. Selecting a brand and
favor depends on your preference.
Consuming lip balm is not harmful if it rubs
off the lips into our mouths. There is no toxicity
associated with lip balm nor has it been linked
to any stomach problems, Byers says. Since
wearing lip balm is habitual, and not an addic-
tion, it’s a good habit Lockhart has.
Verdict: Good for you, if contains petroleum
and sunscreen.

Why you should follow him: “I

from Waverly, Kan. says. “I follow him for en-
tertainment value because his tweets brighten
my day. Sometimes he will post videos of his
daughter. One time she was dressed up as a
T-Rex. You can tell she inherited his weirdness.
Sometimes he will even give you a preview of
his new single which is always hilarious.”
A sample of Weird Al’s tweets:

| JAMES HENNAHANE AS TOLD TO MATT GALLOWAY |
NOTICE
James Hennahane, a sophomore from Leawood, lost virtually all his material possessions on Sept. 11,
2011. Flames consumed his student residence at the 1300 block of Tennessee Street. Hennahane made it
out with his laptop, the shorts he was wearing and nothing else. But the fact that he, his brother and others
in the residence at the time made it out alive is enough to make him feel thankful. He now resides at Te
Reserve with several other students who lost everything in the fre that night.
When my friend Andrew Adford started
banging on my door at 6 a.m., I blew him off. We
all got a little wild the night before celebrating
the football team’s win, and I wrote it off as
more drunken craziness. But he just wouldn’t
stop hammering on my door.
“Stop messing around,” I fnally barked.
“Our house is burning down,” he replied.
That was more than enough to jolt me out of
my deep sleep. Wearing only my boxers, I ran
out of my room and turned to the left. The smoke
was already bellowing from our porch and into
our house. Panicked, I tried to remember where
we kept our fre extinguisher. Then I remembered
where it was: our porch. Well, shit.
I rushed back into my room, now fully jarred
out of my slumber. Unfortunately, I couldn’t say
the same for my brother, who was still sound
asleep. I woke him up and as he got dressed, I
saw my curtains ablaze. It had only been about
90 seconds since Andrew woke me up and the
entire place was already consumed with smoke
and fames.
I went over to the window in our living
room and busted our the screen. I made sure
everyone else on the frst foor made it out
before I crawled through the window, but my
roommate insisted on putting his clothes on.
“Get the fuck out!” I shouted. When it got to
the point that I couldn’t breath, I got the hell out
of there. My roommate was close behind, and he
was the last one out. I called 911 and we stood
there helplessly as we watched everything we
owned burn in fames. It was kind of ridiculous.
The next day, we returned to the wreckage
and dug for treasure. It was a great feeling just
fnding something we had easy access to only
a day earlier. The week after the fre was really
shitty. We went from couch to couch with only
the clothes on our backs.
I’m so paranoid about fres now. I get
anxious every time someone throws a lit
cigarette on the ground. I think the more eerie
thing about the whole ordeal is the vodka we
purchased and drank for the frst time the night
before. It’s called Fire Starter, and it comes in
the shape of a fre extinguisher.

Decorating tips that won’t require taking out a stuDent loan
Amie Young, a junior from Olathe, hated her freshman dorm room in Ellsworth Hall. “When girls
go to college, they envision themselves having a super cute dormroom, but my roomsucked,” says
Young, who describes the room as cold, drab and boring. “It was the ugliest thing, it wasn’t well
decorated and it wasn’t homeyat all. So mygoal for thisyear wasto makemyroombright and cheery.
“I wanted to make it feel like home because I knew I’d be spending a lot of time there,” Young
says.
You’re fnally living in your own place away from your parents and free to live how you choose.
Now is the time to replace those Star Wars sheets from middle school and put together your
perfect space. Decorating can get expensive, so use these wallet-friendly tips to create a space
that refects your personality.
Before you start, ask your landlord or resident assistant what alterations you’re allowed to
make. Many residences allowpainting and screwor nail holes as long as you repaint or patch the
holes when you move out. Always ask before you change anything to avoid fnes and insure that
you’ll get your security deposit back.
Whe re t o start
First, choose a goal for the room. What do you want your room to achieve? Do you want it to be
a place to study, entertain or relax? What do you want your room to say? Remember these goals
when choosing the room’s theme, colors, furniture and accessories. Each choice should support
your goal to insure that your room serves its purpose.
“Before buying furniture, art or accessories, you must look at the bones of the room or
apartment,” says Laura Buhrer of Laura Buhrer Designs in Kansas City, Mo.
Take note of the ceiling height and roomsizes to determine what you need to fll the room. Then
determine the seating you need and how it can be arranged. “Seating can be easily mapped out
by using templates or newspaper to see how much of the room you wish to utilize,” Buhrer says.
“Then move to the tables, accessories and art.”
Young used her disappointment in her freshman year roomto choose her newroom’s goal: to be
a place she loves and feels at home in.
Ge t i nsp i re d
Before you begin decorating, fgure out your budget, says Sue Toler of Impressions Interior
and Home Staging in Leawood. Determine how much you can spend, then make lists of what you
already have, what you need to buy and any extras you’d like to buy if you have any left over funds.
This list will guide your decorating purchases.
“Rooms refect the personalities of those that live within,” Buhrer says. “They create drama,
serenity, moodiness, pleasure, comfort and desire. I believe that a home allows an environment
that fosters these traits.”
When choosing a room’s style, it’s important to choose a unifying element that will help you
make cohesive decorating choices. This can be something broad like a color or theme, but can
also be narrowlike choosing pieces that match a vintage mirror you fell in love with at the Antique
Mall on Massachusetts Street.
Buhrer suggests looking at magazines and design websites to determine your decorating likes
and dislikes. Look at fabric stores or paint stores to put together a color palette that “entices and
infuences your choices,” she says.
“If designing simply a room, themes often work best,” Buhrer says. “Inspiration may come from
a favorite movie, time period like the mod 60s or a college team.”
Toler says the key to creating your dream space is surrounding yourself with things you love.
“Decorating a roommust begin with defning the total look you’re working for,” Toler says. “The
style of your room should be a refection of you.”
When Young set out to fnd things for her new room, she fell in love with the bedspread that
became her unifying element.
“When I started decorating, I didn’t have a theme in mind, but when I saw my bedspread and I
had to have it,” Young says. “I decorated my room around that, but I also chose things I liked and
they happened to match.”
t ransf orm f urni t ure

Furnishing an entire apartment can become costly. Garage sales, second-hand stores and
relative’s basements are flled with old furniture that you can get for cheap or free. But you don’t
have to use these hand-me-downs as is. Wooden furniture can be easily re-fnished to look like
new.
Stephanie Rosson’s grandparents gave her four pieces of wooden furniture for her apartment:
an oak dresser, two night tables and a hutch.
“It’s quality furniture,” Rosson, an alumna from Ada, Okla., says. “Furniture is expensive and I
probably saved around $1500.”
Although it was a lucky fnd, the pieces didn’t match each other or the black and white theme
Rosson wanted for her room. So she refnished the furniture and painted it black.
Rosson poured liquid sandpaper onto a cloth and rubbed it over the furniture to remove the
original fnish. Then, she painted over the furniture with black latex paint and let it dry overnight.
“I love do-it-yourself projects and arts and crafts, so it was very rewarding,” Rosson said. “ I
like knowing I got to take something plain and turn it into something I like and enjoy.”
You can also transform ugly fabric furniture. If you don’t like the fabric of a couch, recliner,
loveseat or futon, cover it with a slipcover.
Young inherited an old loveseat that had been in her family since she was born. The seat is
comfortable, but she couldn’t stand to look at what she calls “hideous fabric with little fowers
that look like clown faces.”
Young found her a brown, faux suede loveseat cover at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $20. Unless
you have a custom ft slipcover made for your furniture, covers come in standard sizes. To make
the cover look like the real thing, drape and tuck the fabric until it fts your furniture.
acce nt a room
The furniture and walls are the basics of a room, but accessories are what bring the roomto life
and express your personality.
“Whether it’s a fabulously framed music poster or an antique chandelier that was inherited from
a family member, accessories create interest and take the ordinary and make it extraordinary,”
Buhrer says.
When choosing accessories, keep your budget in mind. Good pieces don’t have to be expensive.
Buhrer suggests shopping at stores like Target, Gordmans, Home Goods and Pier I for inexpensive,
but tasteful options for accessories like pillows, shower curtains, and rugs. If your roomis inspired
by a decade, thrift stores, antique malls and consignment shops are excellent resources for fnding
unique, retro-style pieces at affordable prices.
Young’s walls are covered in pictures, posters and prints. She chose these decorations as
affordable ways to express her personality.
“I have tons of pictures in my room, in frames, on the walls, all over. They remind me of good
memories and good people,” Young says.
Young found her art posters and prints at the Kansas Union’s poster sale and allposters.com.
Posters are a great way for students to own a piece of art without having to spend thousands.
“When choosing accessories, remember your style, room size and mood of the room,” Buhrer
says. “The unexpected usually creates the most interest. Put wire shelves on a wall to hold books,
display a grouping of clocks on a focal wall or use books as end tables.”
If your budget or style only allowfor a fewdecorations, lamps and art are accessorizing musts.
To inexpensively fnish the room, decorate with candles, ceramics or copies of your favorite books.
Accessories are the fnal touches that bring the space together, so choose wisely.

DOING WITHOUT // GOOGLE GET SOME CULTURE // Tai KwOn DO CLub
Running on the treadmill or lifting weights
can get you in shape, but the KU Tai Kwon Do
Club offers a way to kick your butt into shape as
well as teach you self-protection.
Charlotte Davis, the club’s president and a
junior from Shawnee, started attending when
she was a freshman. She says the club helped
boost her confdence with the work she put in to
reach her current blue-belt status.
By attending the club, you learn from two
black belt teachers who teach you from the
basics all the way up to the most diffcult tech-
niques. You also get to break wooden boards.
Mercedes Fergus, a freshman from Wichita,
I can’t remember the last time I picked up a
dictionary or went searching through an ency-
clopedia. Google has been such a huge part of
my academic life that it’s always the frst place
I go to search for information on anything and
everything. Forcing myself to go without it for
a week was like being sent back to elementary
school when computers still had green type and
black backgrounds.
Tyler Wright, a sophomore from Garden City,
is a frequent Googler who Googles things 20 to
30 times a day. Even at that rate, Wright says
it wouldn’t be that different if Google wasn’t
around. “Another company would try to mo-
learned about the club during orientation, and
now attends twice a week. Unlike many of the
other new club memembers, Fergus has been
into Tai Kwon Do for several years and has al-
ready obtained her second-degree black belt
status.
“It keeps you active and in shape, but it’s a lot
of hard work,” Fergus says.
If you’re looking for a better work out and
maybe some protection skills, you can learn Tai
Kwon Do for $60 a semester. The club meets
Mondays and Wednesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. in
the Martial Arts room at the Ambler Student
Recreation Center.
MANUAL
nopolize the Internet. It would be the same as
Google, just as a different name.”
Wright’s thoughts are also shared by Julie
Loats, the director of enterprise applications
and services for KU Information Technology.
Both agree that without Google, many would
be “in the dark” due to how much we rely on
the search engine for our everyday informa-
tion needs. This ranges from just searching
for information to having your appointments
saved on a Google calendar.
In the end, life wouldn’t be that much dif-
ferent if Google wasn’t around. Instead of
Google+, it would be Yahoo+ or Bing docs
instead of Google docs. So don’t be afraid if
Google vanishes one day. It will most likely be
back, just under a different name.

T R I P P I N ’
D o n ’ t l e av e y o u r s e l f s t r a n D e D
You’re driving down a highway late at night
when your car begins to shake. A few seconds
later, bam! your tire blows out and you franti-
cally try to direct your car onto the shoulder. Af-
ter maneuvering the car onto the shoulder, you
get out to see that your tire not only exploded, it
also blew the fender off of your car. Next thing
you know, you’re hacking your fender off of your
car with an axe that a highway patrolman had
just so you can put on your spare tire.
This was the story of Saad Syed, a fresh-
man from Wichita, as he made his way back to
Lawrence last semester. “It was just a loud pop,
and then I just saw my fender fy up and hit my
windshield.”
Instances like this can happen to you if you
don’t properly check your car before going on
a trip. Syed estimates the total amount to fx
his car near $3,000. Would you want pay that
kind of money because you forgot a simple tire
pressure check? Do yourself a favor and make
sure your tires are aired up right. The amount of
pressure each tire needs should be printed on
the driver’s side door or in your cars manual.
Besides just checking the tires before taking
off over fall break, there’s a whole list of other
things you might want to consider before your
fun comes crashing to a halt.
For starters, be sure to check your oil and
maybe even get it changed. Oil to a car is like
blood to our bodies; without it, you’re not going
anywhere. Jon Rasa, who is in charge of drive
train construction for the Jayhawk Motorsports
formula race cars, says to change the oil your-
self or have a family friend do it instead of a
mechanic or car dealership. “If you’re going
to try to save money, it’s easier for you to do it
and recycle it at Wal-Mart for free than trying to
pay the minimum at a shop and get some crap,”
Rosa says.
There is also your radiator, which cools your
engine while it’s running. Be sure that you have
plenty of antifreeze to keep it running properly.
Without it, your engine will simply overheat and
shutdown. Keep in mind, your radiator’s con-
stantly under pressure and if it does decide to
stop working, don’t even think about touching
it. You’ll know it’s hot if your car’s temperature
gauge is in the red zone. So unless you want
third-degree burns, just turn the car off and let
it sit for a while before trying to open the hood
or radiator cap.
So what kind of things should you stick in the
trunk in case your car decides to break down on
you? Jake Mitchell, an employee at AutoZone,
says these are must-dos if you plan on road trip-
ping anytime soon.
1. A frst aid kit can help you out if you end
up hurting yourself while trying to fx your car.
2. Spare parts are a good thing to have if
you know of things that might be going out on
your car.
3. A few extra quarts of oil are always a
good idea, especially if you know your car has
an oil leak.
4. A cool engine is much better than a hot
one, so carry some extra antifreeze with you
too.
5. Always keep a tire pressure gauge in
your car. Not keeping an eye on your tire pres-
sure can quickly end your trip.
You’ve seen it in movies,
but does it reallY work?
Movie: Gamer
Prior to going into battle against his fellow inmates,
Gerard Butler, the leading actor, drinks a bottle of vodka
that he plans to have run through his system by the time
he reaches a truck somewhere within the war zone. As
he comes across the truck, which doesn’t have gas in
it, he pees into the gas tank and then drives off. In case
you couldn’t tell already, this does not work.
Movie: Sex Drive
Antifreeze is the only thing that should really be put into
your radiator to cool off your engine. In “Sex Drive,” they
try to pee in the radiator to cool the engine. It worked for
a whole 10 seconds before the car broke down again.
However, some responses to this question of peeing in
the radiator in forums on Yahoo! Answers say that this
does work, but for how long remains unanswered.

At the north gate of the University of Kan-
sas, students and Lawrence residents gaze at
the large limestone structure as just another
hotel. But the view from the top of the Oread
Hotel is a sight unlike any other on campus.
The Nest on Ninth, a large wide-open
terrace outside the ninth foor of the hotel, is
one of the Oread’s top attractions. Couples,
sightseers and other hotel guests make the
trip across campus to the hotel, not just for the
restaurants and underground nightclub, but
also for the peace, serenity and the breathtak-
ing view atop the hotel, which is named after
Mount Oread.
“We’ve never had this opportunity in Law-
rence to see views like this before,” says Patti
McCormick, director of media and special
events for the Oread.
Two small bars serve the guests who make
the trip up the nine foors to the upper terrace.
Guests can choose from an assortment of
beers, wines and cocktails, as well as order
appetizers from the Bird Dog restaurant on the
main foor. The Nest on Ninth also provides live
acoustic music from different musicians and is
open daily, weather permitting.
“It’s also a game-day magnet,” McCormick
says. “Just watching the crowds coming to
and from the stadium is a lot of fun.”
The terrace wraps around the southern top
half of the hotel and guests are treated with
a view of Lawrence they can’t see anywhere
else in town. Whether students want a bird’s-
eye view of campus, Memorial Stadium or just
want to watch the sunset, the Nest is great for
any occasion.

What’s the frst thing that comes to your
mind when you hear the word college? Some
students would say homework, some would
say stress and a lot of students would say
partying.
As college students, we organize parties,
host parties, go to parties, drive people and
pick people up from parties and if nothing else,
we hear about parties. People talk about who
was there, what people were wearing or how
awesome or how lame the whole shindig was.
But what makes or breaks a party? Collin
Bean, a junior from Minnetonka, Minn., says
it’s music.
“People love to forget their problems and
very few things do that better than some
catchy lyrics or a melodic chorus,” says Bean.
Bean is a music journalist who runs his own
hip-hop blog.
Bean, who has created party playlists for
his blog as well as weddings here and there,
says you need to know your audience to make
the perfect party playlist. “Don’t play what you
want to hear, play what you think they would
want to hear.”
KU alumni Sam Krause and Nick Rivera,
better known as DJ SKrause and DJ Nick
Arcade, agree.
“You’ve got to fnd something everyone can
relate to. That’s the key,” says Krause. “The
whole point of my sets are that I construct
something that touches on everyone in the
room.” For example, when Krause plays
shows in Houston, he knows the crowd there
loves dirty south rap. “I work in Slim Thug and
shit into my sets so I can relate to them and
make them be like, wow,” says Krause
Rivera constructs playlists depending on
his audience, just as Krause does.
“You don’t put a show together before you
know what the show is, same goes for making
playlists for parties. You have to look into it
and see what type of people might be coming
by,” Rivera adds.
One thing to keep in mind when you are
making a playlist though, is that you might not
know the types of people coming to the party
you’re planning. Bean has advice for such
situations.
“The biggest thing is making sure you have
a mixture of the newest tunes with classic
songs mixed in as well. People love new mu-
sic that that is on the radio, online, whatever,
but at the same time people still want to sing
along and dance to songs that they know,”
says Bean.
When in doubt, play “Michael Jackson
and Lil Wayne,” says Rivera. Why? “Because
they both have a shit ton of songs.”
Rivera has a point, and it compliments
Bean’s playlist tip. If you are unsure what to
play at a party, throw in some Michael Jack-
son for the old-school jams and Lil Wayne for
the new tunes. Anyone who has listened to a
radio in their lifetime will know those jams.
Another thing to keep in mind is the order
of your playlist.
“You want the playlist to grow and die. I’ll
put all the Southern rap together, all the rock
together and hip-hop together, some dubstep
and electro. You want it all to fow smooth.
Start off with your hardest music,” says
Rivera.
“You can’t just jump around every song,”
says Krause. “If you are going to play hip-hop,
play like four of fve hip-hop songs, then play
two rock songs. Change it up, but don’t make
it choppy.”
So the next time you plan a party, make
sure the perfect music is on the top of your
part must-have list. Make sure to know what
your partygoers like, so you can please every-
one whether you know them or not. Remem-
ber what DJ SKrause and Nick Arcade say: let
the playlist grow and die and let it fow.

If you long for a simpler time, that is, 2006 -
when you actually had to look at your friends’
profles to see what they were up to, when you
actually had to be invited into the elite online
club – you might as well put this down and
delete your account right now.
Today, Facebook starts rolling out new
profles for users. The design, called Timeline,
represents a fundamental change in the site’s
aim. Most of Facebook’s updates and revisions
to this point have been aimed at the present,
at telling users what their friends are doing at
that very moment. Timeline leaves the now-
ness of Facebook in place (the news feed isn’t
going anywhere), but provides a look back into
users’ pasts as well.
Under Timeline, the profle becomes more
of a digital scrapbook than a quick-hits page
of vital stats. It features a large “cover photo”
chosen by the user that is the equivalent of
a scrapbook cover. As you scroll down, the
user’s activities are shown along two columns.
But in Timeline, not every piece of content
is created equal. The big moments of your
life – the relationships, the new job, the new
city – are shown in a wide perspective to give
them more prominence along the “timeline” of
your life.
As you continue to scroll down, only the
bigger, more meaningful moments are shown.
In this way, Facebook is becoming more like
our actual memories. We remember the big
moments; we don’t remember what we had
for breakfast (though we might have posted a
status update about it).
Timeline is the biggest change to Facebook
since the launch of the newsfeed. Purists will
scream. More than a few people may quit.
That would be a shame. Timeline is elegant
and relatively intuitive to use. And it is a giant
leap forward in creating a social network that
paints an accurate picture of who we are in
real life, in all our triumphs and defeats.
Facebook is telling the story of our life, and
doing it better than anyone else.

An out-of-body experience gave this writer a fnal goodbye
| TAYLOR LEWIS |
The phone rang around 2 a.m. on September
25, 2008. I awoke with a jolt. My heart pounded
as I strained to hear my mom’s muffed words.
Seconds later, she silently tiptoed into my room
and gently shook me awake, even though I was
alert and bracing myself for what was coming.
“That was Research Hospital. Uncle Walter
was admitted earlier today, and I’m going to run
down there.” I relaxed slightly. Although unfor-
tunate, I had gotten used to Uncle Walter’s ail-
ments through the years.
I can’t remember exactly when my uncle
was diagnosed with kidney disease; I was too
young to understand the signifcance. Even
though I only saw him sporadically through
the year, I knew that he was on dialysis three
times per week. Other than that, everything
was pretty much the same. Recently, he’d been
more tired than normal and had lost a substan-
tial amount of weight, but nothing had really
changed.
He was still the man who wasn’t afraid to
speak his mind. I know this because he, a KU
journalism graduate, practically threatened me
with sudden death if I even considered attend-
ing Mizzou.
He was still the man who racked up a reper-
toire of stories that were immortalized in family
history, perhaps the most famous being when
he was 3-years-old and crept out of bed dur-
ing one of my grandparents’ notorious cocktail
parties. He answered the door and kindly of-
fered the arriving guests a glass of scotch.
He was still the man who was strong and
determined. His tough exterior and tough lov-
ing was nothing but a façade; anyone who
knew him understood just how much he cared
for his loved ones.
Yes, he was ill, but he always pulled through.
“Besides,” I thought. “I’m pretty sure that this
isn’t the frst time Mom has left to be with him
at the hospital.”
As my mom rushed out of the house, I rolled
over and tried to sleep. But for an hour, I tossed
and turned, unable to get comfortable. I fnally
turned to face my dresser and nodded off.
After what felt like only seconds, I awoke
again. But the thing is, I didn’t actually wake
up. My body was still unconscious, but my mind
was awake. While my body was lying limply in
bed, my eyes were staring at my dresser. My
head was swimming with repressed worry for
Uncle Walter. My ears were flled with the si-
lence of the night. Until that silence was bro-
ken.
I saw a burst of light and Uncle Walter’s
voice flled my room. I couldn’t see him, but I
could hear him. I felt his presence occupy the
narrow space between my bed and my dresser.
I could sense that he was in a hurry. I could
almost feel a force rushing him, and my mind
knew that he didn’t have a lot of time to spend
with me.
His words were indecipherable, though. He
was speaking rapidly, desperately trying to tell
me something. I couldn’t understand a word;
all I could gather was that he was scared. His
strong voice was wavering, laced with fear,
and he sounded terrifed.
I interrupted him. “Uncle Walter,” I calmly
said. “You have to slow down. I can’t under-
stand anything that you’re saying.” But as soon
as the words left my mouth, I could feel him
turn sharply to his right, looking in the direction
opposite of where he had come. He paused,
and I froze. I felt him look at me. And in a much
calmer voice, he simply said, “I have to go
now.” And then I felt him really look at me as he
said, “I love you.”
Seconds passed and I didn’t say anything.
I knew that as soon as I uttered those words,
that would be it and Uncle Walter would be
gone. I put off saying anything for as long as
possible. But fnally, neither he – nor I – could
wait any longer. It was now or never. “I love
you, too.”
But unlike the rest of our conversation, I ac-
tually spoke those four words aloud and woke
my body up. This time, it was my own voice that
broke the silence of the night. Everything was
back to normal. I was awake and could no lon-
ger feel Uncle Walter’s presence.
I tried my hardest to write off the experi-
ence as an odd dream. I wanted to convince
myself that my visit with Uncle Walter meant
nothing, that Mom would come home, assure
me everything was OK, and return to bed her-
self. I refused to believe that this experience
had any signifcance at all. I returned to my ft-
ful sleep.
A few minutes later, I heard my dog bark –
my mom was home. I called downstairs, des-
perately seeking the reassurance that I needed.
“Mom! What happened at the hospital?” After
an elongated pause, her voice wafted into my
room. “I’ll tell you when I get upstairs.”
Pretty soon, I heard footsteps. Again, she
tiptoed into my room and sat down on my bed. I
immediately knew something had changed; this
wasn’t normal. “Taylor,” she calmly said in the
same voice that I had used with Uncle Walter
only an hour before. “Uncle Walter died.”
The tears didn’t come immediately. I was in
shock. Neither the “dream” nor the news itself
felt real. The whole night seemed like a movie
scene. I wasn’t sure what to make of my late-
night vision; all I knew was the Uncle Walter
was gone.
For months, I refused to think of that night.
I didn’t tell anyone about it for a year, and I
pushed it to the farthest corners of my memory.
Had I dreamt it or did it really happen? I didn’t
know what to make of my experience, and I
was leery to share it with anyone – who would
believe me? I hardly believed it myself.
It wasn’t until the anniversary of his death
that the whole night came rushing back to me,
and I suddenly couldn’t hold it in any longer. I
called my mom and recounted every detail to
her. I told her how he rushed into my room and
spoke a mile a minute. I remembered how I felt
his presence. I remembered just how strong,
determined and loving he was. How he always
said what he needed to say. And how he gave
me one last story to tell.
