Critical Voices: Usher, A

This summer, I went to an E-40 and Bone Thugz-n-Harmony concert. Between sets, one of the MC’s was working the crowd, joking around and playing radio hits to get people moving. Then, he made the off-hand comment, “how many people in their 30’s do we have in here?” and played some old Usher. The crowd...

Critical Voices: Twenty One Pilots, Trench

It was never really “cool” to like Twenty One Pilots. Consisting of singer Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun, Twenty One Pilots has always been associated with wannabe edgy, cringe-worthy teens in ‘Skeleton Clique’ t-shirts that are still stuck swimming in a sea of their own hormones. However, with their newest album Trench (2018), Twenty...

Branching Out: How to Break the Georgetown Bubble

“Break the bubble.” I heard those words often in the September of my freshman year. It sounded like kind advice, sometimes, and other times, like a threat–break the bubble, or else. I started to imagine Georgetown encased in a glassy balloon that stretched from the back of the observatory to the front gates. Each time...

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholdress

I didn’t wear makeup for over a year. I highly recommend this to every girl who has been regularly applying makeup since those middle school days of uncomfortably large blobs of colored eyeshadow. It gave me a new perspective, and not just of my own face. In my sophomore year of college, I defined myself...

Though eight of the 21 freshman candidates were women and a majority of the first-year class is female, the freshman senate class will be dominated by male representatives.

Women’s World Cup Qualifying Leaves Something to be Desired

This summer, the eighth Women’s World Cup will be held in France, and the sport will once again come out of the shadows. This cycle has been a little bit different, especially for Americans, as the men’s team’s failure to qualify for Russia 2018 was compounded by the fact that the women’s team is more...

The Way He Looks Is A Summer Dream

With summer ending, Leonardo (Ghilherme Lobo) and Giovana (Tess Amorim) hang out around the pool. While Leo regrets having to go back to school, Giovana is sick of nothing going on: they never get a great summer romance in their summers.
