Joe: A Final Farewell

Well, this is it. After a very short three and a half years, my time at B.U. has come to an end. I’ve given you all my wisdom. Now it’s time for me to go out into the world and probably dump even more unwanted wisdom on you in the future. But for now, I’ll […]

Nick: Five Movies Sure to Put You in the Christmas Spirit

As the calendar turns to December, it can bring lots of different emotions. On the one hand, there’s the nervousness and anxiousness of closing the semester on a strong note, finishing final papers, and studying for exams. On the other hand, there’s the excitement and joy associated with the holiday season. If you’re anything like […]

Angeli: An Ode to BU’s Forgotten Eateries

I know what you’re thinking. “Has someone other than Zach Schiffman had the audacity to write a food-related post?”…”Should I even read it?”…”Wait now I’m hungry. What should I eat for lunch?” First, don’t hate me, Zach fans. While I definitely won’t promise that this post will be as entertaining as one of his, I […]

Amy: Get Your Netflix Queue Ready for Finals!

That time of year is back again…it’s that sweet spot between Thanksgiving and Winter break when all hell breaks loose and for a minute there you might not be sure if you’ll ever actually make it through the next two weeks. When that happens A) Relax (or try) because it will all be over soon […]

Caroline: COM Down with a Crossword Puzzle

It’s very easy to get overwhelmed in December. Final exams and final papers are looming. It can become a lot, quickly on top of daily homework, extracurriculars, friends, and work. Sometimes its important to take a break from it all. When I’ve run out of podcasts (see previous blog post) I need something else to […]

Hanna: Writer’s Block and How to Knock It

It’s 12:48am. The dim glow of your stringed Christmas lights is the only sign of brightness. You hear a car drive down the street. It’s the first you’ve heard in hours. You focus on it, wondering. Where is it going? Why so late? Who is inside? You realize your mind has drifted again and you […]

Emma: “Creative” Doesn’t Mean “Easy”

I’ll admit that I am one of those people who knew what they wanted to do since they were little. After getting past my Legally Blonde-induced Harvard Law dreams of fourth grade, I shifted my focus to advertising. I know, that doesn’t seem like a very natural progression, but it makes more sense if I […]

Hannah: Social Media Realizations

I’m in a love-hate relationship with social media.  This year marked my sixth anniversary with Facebook, and I’ve had Twitter and Instagram for almost as long.  These years have proven to me that social media can be all-at-once incredibly amusing, undeniably powerful, and frustratingly deceptive. I think that if 2016 is the year of realizing […]

Sam: Chrismas Carols with a Quirk

That special time of year has finally come around. Comm Ave. feels like an icy wind tunnel, holiday decorations are popping up around the city and Christmas music is constantly playing no matter where you go. No offense, card-carrying carolers, but listening to the same tunes every year drives me totally bonkers. If you’re like […]

Jimmy: How to Succeed Second Semester

We’re just around the corner from Winter Break… which means we’re SUPER close to the second half of the year #scary. For some, it may be a reaffirmation of the status quo. But for others, it may be the time to fine tune the image you spent 3 months creating. And for some, it may […]
