Hey. Hey you. Did I say you could drag away that chair?

Oh. I’m eating Coco Roos by myself and reading the Times so you just assumed that nobody was using that chair? So you just dragged it away, like that? How presumptuous. I thought I came to a small liberal arts college to avoid ass-hats like you. Continue reading

Man, oh Man! Life can get so frustrating sometimes! Luckily, there’s a cure for that. I don’t know what it is, but it’s probably $29.99 and if you call now you’ll get another one FREE! Now, especially, to deal with the mundanities of Kenyon, let me ask you a question: has THIS ever happened to you?

Idk ’bout u, but since the presidential election I’ve been feeling pretty impotent. Of course, there’s a million and three ways to help out: organize/attend rallies, protests, volunteer at or donate to the ACLU/Planned Parenthood/many other places, call the White House ((202) 456-1111), your Senator/Representative…

I was talking to my mom the other night and told her that I don’t know what else I can do to make things better. She said she doesn’t really know either, but she’s trying to be kinder to everyone because at this point, pretty much, she’s assuming everyone she meets is going through a harder time than usual.

Take them, leave them, call them moralistic/prescriptive/artificial. But do it kindly.

“Thanks to my time abroad, I came to understand perspectives I’d never considered and make connections with others in a whole new way! I can only describe it as life changing.”                ~Elana Spivack ’17 after taking a picture with this cat in Morocco

You just came back from abroad. We get it. You’re a different person. You had an amazing experience. You expanded your horizons. You really grew as a human because now you know that you’re allergic to octopus. None of those testimonies will help me figure out whether I should hook up with the pretentious albeit hot local from my clase de filosofia, eat borscht before or after drinking vodka, or try to raise a stray Mexican cat on the DL.

Griffin Burrough ’18 presents some of the nitty gritty from his fall semester abroad in Copenhagen–notably his trip to Russia. Learn from his mistakes: either to repeat or avoid them.
