When I go home for breaks, one of my favorite places to eat is a hole in the wall thai place called Thai Phooket; over spring break I went twice in the span of 6 days and understandably, I miss thai food when I come back to Kenyon. They say that if you love something, let it go, but I’d rather recreate my favorite dishes like how a widow will create an animatronic worthy of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride out of her husband’s corpse. The final product will never be as good as the original but at least there’s someone to blame for not paying the bills. Anyways, please enjoy attempting this recipe! It’s good, I swear!
The Thrill spotlights a Discrimination Advisor regularly to raise awareness about the resources available to students on campus in relation to issues of discrimination. They have weekly Office Hours they announce via email and can also be reached at any time using this form. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help. Today, we’re featuring Rebekah Lofgren ’17.
If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
Pasta. I used to eat a box of mac and cheese for breakfast in Middle School.
What’s the last good book you’ve read?
This might be a copout because I had to read it for class last semester, but I liked Terror in the Mind of God by Mark Juergensmeyer. As its subtitle suggests, the book is about the rise of global religious violence (violence performed in the name of religion might be a better way of putting it). Juergensmeyer does not focus on one religion alone; rather, he discusses a diverse range of instances of religious violence, each of which were interesting in their own way
What’d you think about during your walk to class this morning?
That I should be walking to class instead of driving.
Why do you love Kenyon?
Because almost anybody can find at least a few incredible friends here, even if the love affair isn’t with Kenyon itself.
Where’s your favorite place to nap on campus?
3rd floor Olin in the chair in the far corner of the oversize books section.
Why did you become a DA?
We’re all still feeling the burn of Jon Hamm’s canceled appearance at Kenyon (RIP), but lament not Lords and Ladies because EARL SWEATSHIRT is coming to campus. I. AM. SO. EXCITED. WHO. EVEN. NEEDS. JON. HAMM. ANYMORE. NOT. US. CAUSE. WE. GOT. EARL. FAM. Read more…
For those who do not know about Peirce Date, we set two people up on a blind date at Peirce. It’s a great way for students to connect at no price. Want to go on a Peirce date? Want to find your friend that special someone? Let us know!
We’re back baby. That’s right, it’s another episode of pEiRcE dAtE, where we set up two “willing” participants on a blind date in Peirce. Let’s see how it went:
