Nolie here, and it's that time of the year again. Graduation has come and gone. The dorms are empty, and the campus is strangely quiet (according to Buzzfeed, the word for this is kenopsia). Summer is here, and Spring Semester twenty fifteen has drawn to a close. As endings often do, this made the Choctawk team feel a little nostalgic, and so we decided to look back and reflect on our favorite blogs of 2015 so far. Whether they made us laugh, smile, or tear up a little, we didn't have a hard time picking out our top ten blogs!
