Chicken and egg. A guest column about going to college close to home by my spunky friend Olivia.

Olivia and I are dear pals and the moment I’ve been waiting for is finally here, a guest post! Olivia’s a sophomore at UC Berkeley, and last semester she wrote a series of super duper thought-provoking columns for Berkeley’s The Daily Californian Arts section. They were funny and heartfelt and filled with all of her favorite artists and movies and singers, new friends and old hurts. … Continue reading Chicken and egg.

Surprise! I’m not dead! A really, obscenely long thought on sophomore year and doing things.

Guess how many people have decided that this blog is D.E.A.D. A lot. Like a lot a lot. Just because Zoe is a pal who tells me when things are dead so I can properly resuscitate, here’s a pic of the birthday cake I got her, with a knife through it because it obviously looks better that way. HBD! It all started this summer actually. … Continue reading Surprise! I’m not dead! A really, obscenely long thought on sophomore year and doing things.

Every year, the LDOC committee invites artists to play a mini music festival for all the students right before finals season begins.

It’s Sunday! A laundry story.

It’s Sunday morning, and I just got up at 10AM after a night of Palo Alto-esque loitering. So I’m already doing a lot. I get up super ready to college, as in rehanging all the posters that have fallen since I put them up two weeks ago (re: command strips), as in un-ironically blasting songs with the word “Sunday” in it, as in brunching at 12 (both … Continue reading It’s Sunday!
