When Home Is Hard to Define

When Home Is Hard to Define

By:
11/17/2017

Up until I left for Georgetown, it was simple to define “home.” Home was the house in Los Angeles where grew up. It was the place where I learned to swim with my twin sister Katharine and my preschool best friends Charlie and Evren, endlessly doing mermaid kicks as we clutched the side of our…

I read reports of Louis C.K.’s alleged sexual misconduct, now confirmed by Louis himself, on the same laptop that held a “Louis C.K. is my spirit animal” sticker. Before I began to peel it off, not wanting to force the face of sexual harassment on my fellow students, I was struck by the age-old question…

As the Georgetown men’s basketball team gets ready to start the season under new leadership, it enters a non-conference schedule that has turned some heads. None of the schools scheduled to play the Hoyas are basketball powerhouses, with 16-seed Mount St. Mary’s being the only team that made the tournament last year. This is unusual…

A men’s college basketball season for Power Five programs can be thought of as a slightly modified three-course meal. You start with appetizers, which are early-season marquee matchups like Duke vs. Michigan State at the Champions Classic. Then, a team will typically proceed to the dessert portion of its schedule, feasting on cupcakes in the…

Upon Turning 20

Upon Turning 20

By:

It was Oct. 6, the day before I turned 20. Suddenly the urge to do something crazy, something teenager-y, came over me. I think what’s odd about how I felt in that moment is that I was mourning something I feel I never had. I’ve never felt like a teenager, or at least what I…

Carrying On: Angry Liberal Feminist Killjoy

Carrying On: Angry Liberal Feminist Killjoy

I wear my opinions on my sleeve, literally. Fashion can be a useful way of expressing one’s personality, but my clothes spell things out. I am a frequent wearer of T-shirts with clever sayings on them, some innocuous and some overtly political. “Angry liberal feminist killjoy.” “Cats against catcalls.” “Keep Earth clean, it’s not Uranus.”…

‘Easy to Spot’

This collection of quotes reflects a few perspectives on fashion at Georgetown. These quotes were selected from email interviews conducted by Brynn Furey (SFS ’20), Joy Kim (COL ’21), and Runzhong Xu (COL ’21).   “I try to have fun with my fashion all the time. It was a central part of coming into my queer identity—I would…

Fashion That Cements Existence

Fashion That Cements Existence

Fashion is a language that doesn’t speak, it demands. Its theoretical aim is to wordlessly communicate the essence of a particular person with one glance, creating a cohesive narrative from head to toe. It acts as both an expression and a gateway into a conversation. In the midst of a photo shoot on Wisconsin Avenue, passer-bys’ reactions varied, yet people always seemed…

Everything I needed to know in life, I learned from Batman. Ok, everything might be a stretch. What I mean by that statement is that of the countless memorable lines of dialogue from Christopher Nolan’s sublime Dark Knight trilogy, one particular quote from 2005’s Batman Begins has stuck with me. Bruce Wayne tells his trusty…
