As a wrap up to the end of the semester and tie-in to our print issues’s Pursuit theme, our next week of posts are all centered around heart maps. Each member of our blog staff, as well as our Editor in Chief and Managing Editor has filled out a heart map to show our individual interests. Here’s mine:
Even when I was younger and global warming and the environment seemed to be a much more distant problem, I was still constantly told by adults to “go green” and “reduce, reuse, and recycle.” As a kid, my idea of using the three R’s was making a guitar out of the tissue box my mom was going to throw away.
Garfield famously hates Mondays. If you go to the clothing section of almost any store you’re bound to find shirts that boast how much they hate Mondays. The Cure permanently dubbed Mondays as blue in “Friday I’m in Love.” No matter where you look at it, the world seems to collectively hate Mondays. I’m no fan of Mondays either. I’m no stranger to being up … Continue reading Make the Most of Your Mondays
“I want the original cover! I don’t want to see Sam Claflin and Emilia Clark on the cover.” I was in the book section of Target when I heard someone two aisles away complaining about how she couldn’t find the original version of Me Before You, a book by Jojo Moyes which has recently been turned into a major motion picture. It wasn’t until I … Continue reading When Books Become Movies: Why Are the Original Covers Being Covered Up?
After twelve episodes which covered a race of 21 days and 27,000 miles in ten different countries, the 28th season of The Amazing Race finally came to end. While the show usually has a random selection of contestants, this season kept it interesting by having all social media stars and their families race around the world to compete for the million dollar grand prize. Since … Continue reading The Amazing Race 28 Finale
When I was younger I told my mother I would never live in Boston. It wasn’t because it was a city. It wasn’t because it was far away from home. No, it was because Boston is where the Boston Red Sox play, and as a stubborn Yankees fan, I wasn’t about to subject myself to that city. Fast forward and I’m visiting Emerson College with … Continue reading Bleeding Blue in Beantown
One of the perks of being a student at Emerson is all of the organizations there are to take part in. No matter your major or interests, there’s probably an organization where you can express your interest and hone your skills outside of a classroom setting. Undergraduate Students for Publishing, more commonly known as Pub Club, is an organization that operates less like a college … Continue reading Pub Club’s Spring 2016 Book Launch
When I was in high school I stared at the red, failing grade of an essay I had written for English class, trying to read the scribbled comments my teacher had given me so I could somehow connect the grade to my writing. I thought I had understood the prompt. I thought I had studied. I thought I had managed my time well. That was … Continue reading Revising Your Opinion About Revisions
I remember being at a gathering at a family friend’s house in middle school. The adults were standing around talking and the kids were at a table coloring. I didn’t fit in with the adults because I was too young to partake in their conversations. The kids were all younger than me; elementary school or younger so I didn’t really fit in with them either. … Continue reading I’ll Never Grow Up: Kids Activities Made for Adults
“I’m going to a meeting. And then another one after that.” “Didn’t you just have a meeting?” “Yeah, but I have more. And another one tomorrow.” This is kind of how it goes for me. Being a member of four organizations, it’s not uncommon for me to have three meetings in a week. One night I even had three meetings in a row. At a … Continue reading Get Org-anized
