Explain Your Social Distancing Routine and I’ll Recommend Music for You

Daylight falls. The sun approaches the horizon once again. I have lost track of the days, for I have not exited my house in weeks. Hours pass in the blink of an eye as my life devolves into a state of incoherence and confusion. Here I stand writing, in the eye of a hurricane, knowing...

Celebrate the poet, but do not ask her to explain herself

I don’t like to tell people I read poetry. I don’t like to tell people I write poetry. At least, I don’t like to tell people I read it religiously, each day taking a second out of my rapid-fire morning routine to breathe in Poetry Foundation’s poem of the day. Or that I try to...

It’s a weird time. With COVID-19 ripping Georgetown students unceremoniously from the Hilltop, I’ve spent much of the past few days reminiscing on my favorite parts of my freshman year—from adventures off-campus to simple contented coexistence with my friends.
