[Handpicked: April]

This is a new segment on this written show of Sneha’s life. {insert music here} It’s not as morbid as you would think. It’s just the theme of the month: stories of ‘happy’ or ‘awestruck’ tears in honor of April showers, plus I figured I was running out of long nostalgic things to write about so I’d […]

24/1 with Tiffany [read: literally 24 hours, 1 day with Tiffany]

This past weekend, my personal land mermaid Tiffany came to visit Boston for a total of 24 hours. Setting the scene: I was already sick for a week and a half with a deathly cough (don’t worry I’m still living, this is not a message from beyond the grave) so Tiffany chose to take on […]

Doing Good [read: being on Good St.]

Doing a shout-out to a pretty cool organization that Tiffany is part of as their Marketing/Graphics Director! {I know, she’s on to big fancy things.} She gets to relive our yearbook days by putting her graphic design skills to work (work work work work) for Good St. – turning ‘small change into big change.’ I […]

Sweet Home Alabama [read: seven days in the South]

It’s a comfort song but it’s also a little racist. Kinda like Alabama itself. So, it’s a great introduction to my Alternative Spring Break in Selma, Alabama for seven days this past week because it brings light and challenges to real issues that exist in the South like Civil War & Civil Rights history. Alternatively, it’s also […]

Relaxing Like a President [read: you’re right, there’s no such thing]

Happy long weekend everyone! Unless you’re Neena and you have next Friday off instead for some “Winter Carnival.” The quotes aren’t because I don’t believe her, they’re because I think it’s a funny alternative. Only at Williams. Regardless, she drove down to kick off this long weekend on Friday night (all by herself!) and entered […]

[RGC 200.] The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri

[read: the book that made me cry 3 times in the first 30 pages] I’ve been waiting to read this ever since I got it for my mom to read. Jhumpa Lahiri is known for this book, it was in fact turned into a movie with Kal Penn (notably Kumar in the Harold & Kumar movies) […]

Winter Camp [read: just kidding, we got heated cabins]

I have news! For those of you who don’t see me everyday, you don’t know that my life changed very much this January when I bit off way more than I can chew. I basically Elle Woods-ed it by becoming our university’s Panhellenic president. That means I look over the governing council that is comprised […]
