Slashers and Sex

Slashers and Sex

By:

If there are three things I love, they’re the smell of coffee, a hot bath after a long day, and watching attractive people be brutally murdered in sequential order. Before you ask, you aren’t on the same campus as a beauty-abhorring psychopath, but a slasher movie fanatic. In the existentially draining chaos of this world,…

Stop Telling Me About Einstein

Stop Telling Me About Einstein

When people find out that my youngest brother has autism and is nonverbal, they often tell me the same anecdote: “Did you know that Albert Einstein didn’t speak until he was four years old?” This story (which has never been proven to be true) used to give me a flicker of hope. Nearly nine years…

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…

“Dangerous Women” Are Not Responsible For Men’s Behavior

Content Warning: This piece discusses substance abuse and death. “You made him do it. This is all your fault. I’m 100% blaming this on you. Kill yourself.” After Mac Miller died of an apparent drug overdose on September 7, Ariana Grande, international popstar and Miller’s ex-girlfriend, received countless hateful messages on social media, blaming her…

Georgetown Needs a Buddhist Chaplain

Georgetown Needs a Buddhist Chaplain

My memories of the Jesuit Values Panel of NSO are strikingly clear. Sitting in McDonough Arena, I heard thoughtful presentations from various spiritual leaders on campus, like Imam Yahya Hendi and Rabbi Rachel Gartner. I heard inspiring words about how Georgetown is a “Community in Diversity” that encourages spiritual growth and exploration. But more and…

You’re a Hoya, Natalie!

From the moment I entered the magical world of NSO, I knew this wasn’t going to be Hogwarts, no matter what Healy Hall’s appearance suggested. Moving across the country and starting over is overwhelming for anyone, especially a freshman in college. The forced small talk, the rats, the stress of schoolwork, the rats… But amid…

Spicer on Campus: Little to Offer, Much to Gain

If we lived in a just world, Sean Spicer and the other former members of the Trump Administration would be too ashamed to show their faces in public, spending their post-Trump lives separated from a country that has, at best, forgotten about them. Instead, Spicer, in an event sponsored by the Georgetown Institute of Politics…

Social media has forever changed the nature of social justice activism. Internet activism has taken off, allowing people from across the world to share their opinions in a second or promote a rally that may have previously gone unnoticed. Movements don’t necessarily have individual leaders like they did during the Civil Rights era or the…

Call Me By My Name

Call Me By My Name

When I posted a column online entitled “Confessions of a Serial Orgasm Faker,” my first instinct was to publish it anonymously. I mean, “Serial Orgasm Faker” isn’t exactly what I’d want my business card to read. What if a future employer Googles my name? But the decision to claim the story as my own helped…
