It’s 3AM. I’m super duper sober. I could sleep but I don’t really want to. For various reasons actually. I decided that I’d post once a week on this blog over the break. So that’s on my mind. And I just watched Hang the DJ (Black Mirror, Season 4, off a Netflix account that isn’t mine but is hogged as if it were) and my … Continue reading Sherpa Boondoggle Mosey. Gee whiz. Flapjacks. (re: a thought i had while in college, therefore a post that pertains to the college experience)
A collection of mostly embarrassing pictures from my sophomore fall at Duke Continue reading My sophomore fall semester in pictures
This is what it’s like to go to a career fair. I know this because I went to one today. Though I printed five resumes, gave two, and then decided that I might not be cut out for this networking thing, I did come up with a long stream of thoughts while waiting in line (what line? Stay tuned). There are lots of animal metaphors … Continue reading What it’s like to go to a career fair
Opening a blank word document is always so freaking intimidating. Geez. Dear everyone who has followed the past year of my life, I’m writing from the wing of a 737, and nobody is in the middle seat so that’s like seven years of good luck. I never get anything done on airplanes because I always fall asleep, but I just took a nap and am ready to … Continue reading On writing and fast cars and growin’ up. The purpose of freshman year, part 2.
Hello babies, Wanna know what it’s like to go here? I got a bunch of my friends together and we filmed a very long video about freshman life at Duke that I managed to shave down to 20 minutes. We talk about lawn chairs and Christmas lights and parties and classes and homesickness and give tons of unsolicited advice about our first year in college. I filmed this … Continue reading What’s it like going here? Duke Q&A
Hello friends, Yesterday was LDOC, or the Last Day of Classes, a longstanding day of uninhibited celebration here at Duke. Every year, the LDOC committee invites artists to play a mini music festival for all the students right before finals season begins. There’s a stage right next to the Duke Chapel and free pizza and snow cones and the sun is out and everyone looks very … Continue reading A Day in the Life Video: LDOC Edition
HELLO friends, I’m finishing up the last few weeks of school, and currently it’s 80 degrees and shorts weather here in the Gothic Wonderland. So many people have been visiting Duke and all the little senior nuggets are making college decisions. What a time. So excited for the summer! I went to go visit my amiga Audrey at Columbia during spring break and we had a … Continue reading A VERY SNOWY SPRING BREAK (NYC VLOG)
For everyone who’s asked about my time in DC, it took a while (a very long while), but I thought I’d wait for the immediate theatrics and media frenzy of the Women’s March to settle down, to actually think about its significance to me, before sharing with everyone else. It’s kind of scary that this post is still glaringly relevant, almost three months after the march, but I’ve … Continue reading A video/blog about Women’s March, 24 Hours in DC and some thoughts on identity as a non-activist.
