By Maya Mabern It’s getting a bit colder and my favorite holiday of the year is approaching: Thanksgiving.  Much like my love for my second-favorite holiday, the Fourth of July, my reasoning has absolutely nothing to do with the origins of the celebration — I’m never actually in the mood to be patriotic — and […]

By Thalia Lauzon  For some people, college is the longest period of time they’re away from home before moving out for good. It certainly is for me.  While I haven’t gotten homesick, I’m increasingly missing my kitchen and the ability to cook food. Living in a dorm or suite means you don’t have the ability […]

By Michelle Tian You probably didn’t notice that I didn’t write last week because I’m not a celebrity and nobody cares about me.  Sorry, that was really depressing, but yeah, I wasn’t able to write last week.

By Khadijah Khogeer  When it snowed before Halloween last week, I didn’t think Boston’s weather could get any weirder than snow in October.  Until this unusually summer-like November weekend.  Temperatures reached higher than 70 degrees Thursday and managed to stay that way the entire weekend. I, like other Bostonians, spent my days out enjoying the […]
