Actually Yummy Peirce Hacks: Wiggins Street Mocha


So, most of us drink coffee. The sweet, sweet bitter drink that makes you work like something has grabbed hold of your mind and shoved it into a bucket of water and electrocuted it. Or maybe that’s just me. Anyway, being on this good Episcopalian campus, we must walk down Middle Path at least a billion times a day, and on this walk we must pass Wiggin Street Coffee.

Dumbest Thing I Ever Did: My Hazmat Suit

Dumbest Thing I Ever Did: My Hazmat Suit

At the glorious age of 15 (yes, 15, admittedly too old for this to happen), my favorite activities included binge-watching The Walking Dead, and searching my asthma symptoms on Web M.D. and diagnosing myself with immaculate conception. I never shook the latter hobby, as on average I send a picture of my tonsils to my mother twice a week to make sure I’m not dying. It was fall 2014. The Houston air was transitioning from humid to slightly less humid, and I had traded in my Sperry’s for a darker look of a Miley Cyrus lob, and a Sharpie tattoo of a triangle that captured the essence of my new high school identity.

Party like a blog star.

 Think the Thrill‘s too one-sided? Here’s your chance — come write for us.

The Thrill is currently looking for new, witty and talented writers. Dull, incompetent writers need not apply.

We  can promise a lavish lifestyle of luxury cars, European jaunts and unfettered access to literally hundreds of GIFs. You’ve got all of winter break to work on your application, so there’s basically no reason not to apply. All you have to do is fill out this form!

Write for The Thrill! Experience the Glamour of Blogging!

Fig. 1: The glamour of blogging.

Do YOU have what it takes to write a 10 o’clock list? To report on breaking news across campus? To find funny videos for people to laugh at while they’re procrastinating? Then write for The Thrill! If you’re interested, just email with any information you’d like us to know about you. You don’t need to know exactly what you want to write for us — we’ll help you figure that out — just that you want to be a part of the team that keeps this blog running, day in and day out.

The workload is light and flexible, you can be creative and we’ll provide training on how to use WordPress (if you can type and click buttons, you’re 90 percent of the way there). You may even become a minor campus celebrity! (Note from one editor: this past weekend, I was complemented by two different drunk people on The Thrill.) So write for The Thrill: you’ll be glad you did (and if you don’t, you’ll regret it all the way to the grave).

One more thing: The Thrill has now been live for a little more than a month, and today we achieved 50,000 total page views (!!!), so this seems as good a time as any to thank our readers for sticking with us as we continue to get better at this blogging thing. We’re going to keep working hard to bring you informative, witty content on a real-time basis.
