My Ideal English Major [read: broadly speaking]

One of my final courses in college was, ironically, Introduction to Literary Studies. It’s actually been a course that’s given me much more than I’d expected; by procrastinating, I wound up taking a course for reflection at the very end of my undergraduate career. On our first day, we were tasked with reading Mark Edmunson’s […]

Guide to an Unplugged Weekend [read: much needed ‘Me Time’]

It’s great to hit the ground running. But, honestly, the past month has been all running non-stop 100% of the time. If you sneak a peek at that agenda, you’ll know just how much I’ve been running. And I needed a break. With two papers to write, applications to submit, a full-time job, an organization of 1,400 […]

Around the Sun, Once [read: 1-year]

Coco [read: the ballad of love and hate]

The Comet of our family is a bird. Her name is Coco. She loves my dad and hates me with the passion of a thousand suns. It’s funny how life works out when you’re the one who supposedly she loved and brought her home but the tables turned and now it’s a story of betrayal, […]

Full House [read: Pandya family goals]

I’ve been watching Full House since I was in the womb. No, really. In the year of 1994, my mom was pregnant and a strict follower of the show.

Backstreet Boys [read: code namez for the boyz in my life]

I love the Backstreet Boys. Who doesn’t love the Backstreet Boys? I mean, one time I was driving with my dad and the radio was playing 90s hits mixed with rap songs (Florida radio stations). It’s a normal day, the sun is shining, we’re going to Costco, when suddenly I hear my dad singing along. “Quit […]

Inside Out [read: Inside Out Sneha’s emotions though]

I have not gone to the movies in at least 2 months. Which is revolutionary, really, for an AMC Stubs Card Member. So when Phoebe needed to go see Inside Out for her class, I jumped at the chance. Sidenote: when going to the movies to see a Disney film, though, one must be conscious of […]

New Friends in the UK [read: Phoebe still won’t respond to ‘my dear Watson’]

Meet squad in Cambridge, UK: Dominique ‘The Klepto’: current Harvard student, enjoys cottage cheese and nothing else, likes hitting up multiple museums in one day (History major), calls herself the ‘spider wrangler,’ once fell asleep wearing khakhis for warmth as these buildings don’t have much insulation (they’re actually older than the United States of America, […]
