The Darkest Night

The Darkest Night

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…

Did Georgetown Want Me Back?

Did Georgetown Want Me Back?

The first people I saw as the elevator doors opened and the GERMS staff wheeled my stretcher through my dorm entrance were two acquaintances. “Don’t worry,” I laughed nervously as I was pushed passed their startled faces, “I’ll be back soon.” I didn’t realize that “soon” would be  over a year later. For those not…

My Home I have seen the junction of hope and hopelessness. I spent the first few years of my life on Emerson Street in Haverhill, Massachusetts. The place was falling apart, and drugs changed hands in the house’s darker hallways. My mother rarely let me leave the house or play with the other children outside….

The first time I ever encountered Georgetown University, aside from viewing the entirely under-appreciated masterpiece College Road Trip starring Martin Lawrence and Raven Symoné, was when I was 12 years old and living in Atlanta, Georgia. My eldest sister came home from a school trip to D.C. and spent the next week raving about some…

Throughout my two years at Georgetown, I’ve heard people say countless times that the university does everything in its power to help students graduate in four years. But in my experience, this is only true if you’re able-bodied, able-minded, and you’re, well, on track to graduate in four years. Georgetown preaches about how inclusive the…

A little more than a year ago today, as I sat vigilantly at my post at Reynolds carrying out my oath as a student guard (the few, the proud) to protect the Georgetown community, I answered a call from my mom. Her tone was hurried and hushed. She was calling to let me know that…

If you could do it over again, would you choose Georgetown? I sat there staring at the question. “Well, it’s more nuanced than just ‘yes’ or ‘no,’” I thought. No, I wouldn’t. That sounds bad. Yes, I would. Well now I’m just appeasing the survey. No, I wouldn’t. I didn’t know how to answer. I…

Fostering a Culture of Happiness

Fostering a Culture of Happiness

By:

Happiness is the idea an innocent child lives by; it’s the sound of the school bell ringing for recess, the smell of delicious chocolate chip cookies baking. Happiness is the color yellow and a warm fireplace in the winter. Whether it’s through ice cream or Mom’s hugs, happiness is real and present. But as we…
