Summer Job Ideas for Ole Miss Students

Posted by on Apr 5, 2010 in Ole Miss | 2 comments

A few suggested ideas for all the Ole Miss undergrads struggling to determine what to do with their upcoming summer. Summer Camps Bossing kids around all summer is a surprisingly fun way to earn a paycheck.. And camps tend to have a more laid back, relaxed feel than a typical summer job. If you’re leaning this route, I’d suggest finding a camp in a mountainous area – that way you’ll skip the brutal heat of July & August.. One suggested camp is Camp Carolina in Brevard, NC. Dude Ranch Dude Ranches actively hire...

Barry Hannah: My word, you stir the memory

Posted by on Mar 3, 2010 in Oxford | 2 comments

Herein lies the fateful and feared dichotomy that all writers face: when we are plagued with an opportunity to write about someone who taught us how. The day one writer dies is the day before others are forced to become better ones. Today, we are all the cliche characters of a Hannah novel-desperate, searching, and lost in light of what has happened. I’m not even the kind who has earned this: a postmortum tribute, or Airships-induced autodidacticism. But I, too, am from Mississippi, lived in Oxford, and wasn’t always literary, if I...

Castle Hill Resort (aka Colonel's Quarters)

Posted by on Jan 14, 2010 in Hotels - B&B's | 2 comments

So, full disclosure, we’re big fans of the 512 B&B.. But as we like to delve around the hospitality scene in Oxford, we decided to stay at Castle Hill Resort recently (formerly known as Colonel’s Quarters) High level, I thought we’d share some quick snapshots we took of the hotel, and also throw in our two cents regarding the establishment. Overall, it’s a well-appointed hotel. Darn nice rooms, quiet, free wifi, and flat screen tv’s.. The distance to town (5 miles) actually didn’t bother me, but we...
