By Sanah Faroke, Staff Writer@sanahfaroke Behold! We have entered the ‘week of death,’ i.e. the week before finals week. We’ve entered the dome of late night strategy sessions, unhealthy food choices, and nocturnal raccoon eyes covered over with concealer. Wait, is that just me? Well, Katniss and I might be BFFs because I feel like […]

By Sanah Faroke, Staff Writer@sanahfaroke When I took my core classes at the beginning of my college career, I pulled all nighters studying for my exams for days at a time. I made immense study guides, until my TA told me that my 32-page guide was equivalent to a grad student’s. My memorization isn’t the […]

By Sanah Faroke, Staff Writer@sanahfaroke The first job I applied to was for a temp position at a Barnes and Noble bookstore in my hometown.

By Sanah Faroke, Staff Writer @sanahfaroke I’m addicted to coffee. The first time I had a drop of coffee, I think the world literally stopped for a split second. It was earth shattering.

By Sanah Faroke, Staff Writer @sanahfaroke Before I went to school and before I had any friends, my mom was my best friend. We used to play Mario Kart and Street Fighter, which I would always win (probably because she just pressed a bunch of buttons and hoped she wouldn’t spin out on a banana peel […]

By Sanah Faroke @sanahfaroke More often, we notice people holding hands as they walk down Newbury Street or sneak kisses while waiting for the T. Either you’re disgusted by it or you’re the one snogging up a storm. We didn’t see it coming, but Valentine’s Day is nearly here, and just like that, love sneaked up […]
