The Adventures of D-Cat

This post was co-authored by Julia Lindsay and Nate Rosenberg. 

It’s always been a wonder to us how D-Cat spends his spare time.  So, naturally we decided to let you guys in on what he does when you’re not watching. By this, of course we mean that we turned him into a Sim.

Things That Should Be Painted On The Caples Elevator

I’m really into these glitter borders right now.

Did your adorable, first-year self ever open up iTunes in your first-year dorm, only to realize that you could totally see the iTunes library of the cute boy who lived on the floor below you (thanks to the all-connecting Kenyon Wi-Fi), and that he totally had Ja Rule’s entire discography too and you said to yourself, “He’s gonna marry me”?

Inspired by Humans of New YorkThe Thrill has begun documenting Kenyon students (and faculty, staff, and dogs) as they go about their daily lives. We present our loving tribute, Humans of the Hill, all taken on the day of Sendoff.

“No, I’m not really into facial hair.”
