This is Hannah Zipperman and I am here to tell you about SHOP2HELP.

Today, we’re featuring Joey Chimes ’19.
If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
Oh man, that’s a tricky question. It’s a toss up between sushi and corn muffins. But since those foods don’t really go together I think I’d alternate: corn muffins for breakfast, sushi for lunch and/or dinner. I’d die at a young age due to malnutrition, but it’d be worth it.

10 o’clock list: Things I am Deeply Afraid Of

December 7, 2016

illustration by Carolyn Gavin

  • Opening my computer on third floor Olin and having the volume on full blast, playing anything
  • Slipping and falling in Peirce, extra points if you spill something on yourself while doing this
  • Backpack butt; for the culturally illiterate, this is when you are wearing a skirt/dress and your backpack pulls up the back of your skirt and everyone can see your BUTT!! Tights do not fix this issue, do not test me.

Adventures in Name-Changing

December 7, 2016

i am so good at photoshoppe !!!!!!

Disclaimer: this article assumes some baseline knowledge about trans/genderqueer… stuff. Check out any of the Thrill’s Queer 101 articles if you’re confused.

Hi, Kenyon! My name is Cat March. Did you hear me? No? Then I will say it louder. MY NAME! IS CAT! MARCH! I’m a sophomore English major from Providence, Rhode Island. I’m also genderqueer and have recently started the process of changing my name. Initially, I was going to structure this post like a Queer 101 article, but then I realized it was turning into a personal narrative. I’m beginning to take the first steps in my journey to becoming The Person I Want To Be™ and I’ve always found it therapeutic to scream my experiences into the void, so here we are! My adventures in name-changing! Thanks for bearing with me and I hope this is at least slightly informative for people with questions about gender.

The Thrill’s Official 2016 Holiday Gift Guide

December 6, 2016


We at The Thrill love the holidays. Specifically, we love the film Unaccompanied Minors, and the holiday season is the only socially acceptable (and even then it is pushing it) time to watch that film. So, in short, we love the holidays. To help you through this busy time, we’ve compiled a list of possible gifts for all of your nearest and dearest loved ones, specifically those people you’ve barely spoken to since last September. Since it’s the season of giving, and since on Christmas you tell the truth (this is NOT a concept), it’s time to express your appreciation for our small, forgotten heroes. And with that, I present the official Thrill 2016 Gift Guide for each and every special person in your life.

The girl you sit next to in seminar but never speak to: A full year supply of underwear
