So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye

sound-of-music-goodbye

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: I Read The Entire Twilight Series As A Coping Mechanism

So, despite our social codes being mostly unwritten, I decided to jot down the Seven Deadly Kenyon sins. Also how they are directly related to birds. Tag yourself if you don’t fear being “ostrich-ized” by your peers. Continue reading

Gambier Ink: Tattoos Around Campus, Part XVIII (First-Year Edition)

5631312

Welcome to the 18th edition of ‘Gambier Ink!’ I decided to bring this feature into 2020 with a bit of a flare. I asked a few first-years about their tattoos and their possible significance. Completely by accident, I actually made a great argument for why 18 year olds should not have the ability to put permanent ink on their bodies. **Content warning: 3 out of the 4 of these tattoos are feet tats (completely accidental, I swear)… Forgive the borderline pornographic and obscene images I have attached.

How to Tell Your Family About Your Weekend Without Revealing Your Heathen Ways

So, it’s that time again. You finally remember to call your family, they ask you how your weekend was, and you don’t have an answer. What are you supposed to say, that you partied so hard you don’t actually remember your weekend? Having some pre-prepared white lies to these questions can help you get out of situations like this. Luckily, they’re so simple, you can remember them no matter how hungover you are.
