Hypocrisy on the Hilltop

Hypocrisy on the Hilltop

By:
12/07/2017

On Monday, I was deeply disturbed to learn that the university that taught me the importance of economic justice and the dignity of labor is now refusing to recognize its teaching assistants as workers, in contravention of established federal law, Catholic social teaching, and its own Just Employment Policy. I spent six years at Georgetown—four as a student,…

“Just Keep Swimming”

“Just Keep Swimming”

By:

I watch a lot of movies and television. In fact, I pride myself on my binge-watching ability. My favorite thing to do is curl up in bed, snacks handy and the TV (or laptop, because it’s 2017 and who isn’t watching everything on their laptop now?) playing whatever show I’m into at the moment. I…

When I was 16, I boarded a one-way flight to Lima, Peru with an ill-fitting blazer draped over my arm and a folded-up American flag in my suitcase. My final destination was Arequipa, a city that sits at the foot of a dormant volcano, a city I came to call home over the next year….

When Home Is Hard to Define

When Home Is Hard to Define

By:

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…

Don’t Be So Blue: Weak Schedule is a Gray Area

Don’t Be So Blue: Weak Schedule is a Gray Area

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…

Hoyas’ Soft Schedule is an Airball

Hoyas’ Soft Schedule is an Airball

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:
10/27/2017

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

By:
10/12/2017

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.”…
