I shatter the mundane traffic of your mind,

For a moment.

I snap at the mundane traffic of the roads,

For a moment.


I screech across the long tongues as my partner sends 

Flashes that don’t belong to your inane 8 to 5.

And yes, why should you care? The best of my calls

Are those that never sound at all.


But why should you care?

Let me pass, and then turn your senses away.

Turn your radio up,

So you don’t hear me cry.


Answer: A service vehicle siren (i.e. ambulance, firetruck)

Having graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with English Honors, Keesilla loves writing. From character development to rhetorical analyses to the pure vibrancy of words, every part must be savored like a warm pastry, which are one of the things Keesilla enjoys to bake when not reading, writing, or staring off into space.

Hi, I'm Madeline Muschalik! This is my fourth year in Her Campus; I wrote for Her Campus at Wake Forest University before transferring to UT in fall 2019. Last year I was the Her Campus Texas Co-President and Campus Correspondent & it was so rewarding. I am excited to explore Austin and learn more about our university through Texas Her Campus. Some of my hobbies include running, reading, yoga, and traveling! I am a Public Relations Major and with a minor in Entrepreneurship and certificate in Creative Writing. Outside of Her Campus I am involved in Texas American Marketing Association, Moody Communication Council, a member of the Kendra Scott WEL Institute Student Council, Texas Kappa Delta, and I am a Transfer Year Interest Group (TRIG) mentor. I love UT & all the amazing opportunities (like Her Campus) that it has to offer!
