It is with a heavy heart that we, Jane Zisman ’20 and Lillian Fox Peckos ’20, write to you today. Sadly, our semester was cut short, and thus so was our time as editors-in-chief. We have loved serving you from our humble beginnings to our jaded final days and we hope you will continue to laugh and jest during these shitty times. Continue reading

Cooking Peirce’s Greatest Hits in my Kitchen at Home

I don’t know if you’ve been watching the news or reading your emails or even briefly glancing at your phone, but we’re in a bit of a situation right now, and because of it, people have been pretty active at grocery stores. In fact, the night Governors Lamont, Cuomo and Murphy banded the tri-state area together and shut down all its non-essential businesses, people pretty much went feral at the local grocery stores. This happened nationally. So, missing certain Peirce meals, I wanted to see if I could recreate a full day in our dear dining hall in my own kitchen using whatever ingredients I could get at Stop & Shop after everyone lost their minds.

It Happened To Me: My Mom Called Me A “Good Boy” For Having A Second Plate Of Dinner

Author’s Note:

Well shit. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but something’s abound and it’s not a great something. However, it’s not a world-ending something. Keep your heads, don’t be dumb. I miss you all.

The Post, For Real Now:

I am a very good boy. I don’t mean to brag, but I brush my teeth twice a day and I eat all my vegetables. I am an extremely good boy. 

That being said, it’s been a while since anyone has told me I am a good boy. Therefore it came as a shock to me when, at a family meal, my dear mother commended me for eating two helpings of dinner by saying “good boy.” This vexed me. Continue reading

It Happened To Me: I Read The Entire Twilight Series As A Coping Mechanism

TwilightI hope this article finds you all safe and healthy. I know we’re trying to cope with these unsettling times the best we can- drugs, binge-watching Pandemic, and hoarding all the basic commodities we so desperately need, to name just a few. For me, it was investing all of my savings into a bear market economy, trying to get back with my ex, being super passive aggressive to my entire family (including our dog), and eventually reading the entire Twilight series.  Continue reading

Beto O'Rourke Cancels Commencement Appearance Over Coronavirus Concerns

Another chip fell on the class of 2020 this morning, when Former Representative Beto O’Rourke cancelled his plans to speak at this year’s commencement. He cited the ongoing coronavirus crisis as the reason for his withdrawal. 

“Obviamente, estoy muy decepcionado,” O’Rourke said in a statement, “pero la lucha contra la pandemia es la máxima prioridad, y sería irresponsable a viajar a Ohio en el futuro próximo.”

Freak Things I’ve Heard In The Common Room At 3 A.M

You know the scene: It’s a Saturday night. You and your friends have just finished gorging on some Dominos cheesy bread after a night of hitting up a random all-campus followed by some NCA-hopping. You and your friend are the last two survivors at 3 AM when everyone’s gone to sleep, hiding out in the common room as both of your roommates are asleep. It is my theory the  deepest of conversations happen past midnight, but that’s kind of hard to accomplish when so many weird beings pass through the common room in a drunken stupor. Here are some freaky things I’ve overheard or seen in the common room at 3 AM.
