The Thrill‘s intrepid new journalists take on the annual Peircegiving feast for the very first time.
Hey. We’ve been through a lot together, you and me. Because I’m a first year Thrill writer, you’ve watched me experience my first Kenyon Halloween, my first Deb Ball, and most recently my second Shock Your Mom (the first was when I got a tattoo last fall, sorry Jules). You’ve watched me grow into the beautiful almost sophomore Thrill Daily Editor butterfly that I am. Good for you.
The last real Kenyon freshman experience I have yet to deal with is the infamous housing lottery. I’ll preface this by saying that I am nowhere near as fucked as the majority of my peers. I was hoping to get a number that would score me a tent on top of Gund lounge or a canoe anchored to the bottom of the Kokosing, but I should’ve known rising juniors would nab all the good housing before the sophomores went. Call me an optimist. Anyway, let’s do this.
What’s up nerds? Annie and I are two of the Thrill’s first year writers and we’re experiencing the joy, fear, ironic detatchment and ecstasy of Peircegiving for the first time as we speak. For your reading pleasure, we’re gonna live-blog the whole damn thing.
The Thrill will be posting on Twitter all day on our account: @thekenyonthrill and our new Vine account!
Welcome to the Thrill‘s version of the 2013 Oscars coverage, in which I lie on my back on a Peirce Pub couch eating miniature pumpkin pies and writing exclusively about what celebrities are wearing. My knowledge of haute couture extends from “Are these leggings too dirty to wear again?” all the way to “I can’t find my red hoodie, fuck it, I’ll just wear the gray one”, so I’m clearly the woman for the job. Read on to get your fill of Oscars fashions from someone who is in no way qualified to talk about them.
7:13 p.m. — Quvenzhane Wallis is perfect and beautiful and I love her blue dress and dog purse so much, but honestly, she could wear a flaming bag of garbage and I’d still want to steal her off the red carpet and raise her as my own.
