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 Emma Sánchez It’s no surprise streaming services and social media outlets have been churning out reruns of early 2000s and 2010s TV shows as of late.  “Victorious” became available on Netflix in late 2019 and “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” another Nickelodeon show, was added to the platform this spring.  Both of these shows, along […]

By Khadijah Khogeer It’s that time of the year again: Halloween, my personal favorite holiday — because Thanksgiving and Christmas are overrated.  There’s no doubt Halloween will look different this year.

By Maya Frankel I have quite a bit of experience when it comes to long-distance friendships. At this point, I feel completely comfortable calling myself a professional. Separation anxiety is real. Believe me, I get it. My roommate and best friend Tali and I have separation anxiety if we are apart for more than 30 […]
