Walken around

By:

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that there are really only two things in this world that make me uncomfortable. And when I say “uncomfortable,” I mean it in the purely psychological sense. I’m not talking about the discomfort that may arise from one’s arm being set on fire or having a kneecap blown off….

Unluck of the Irish

Georgetown students place a lot of pressure on one another to enjoy a year studying abroad with more passion than a great lover, with more joy than a first-born child and with more pride than a successful bid for the presidency. The study abroad cult starts recruiting members at a young age, when prospective students…

Isn’t it time?

This spring’s was the third semester that I wasn’t able to register for Professor Emmett-Mattox’s course on “Class, Race & Gender.” Not surprisingly, this story seems to be more common every year, as many of Georgetown’s most popular courses, in several departments, are those in some area of ethnic studies. Recently, numerous students and faculty…

Don’t wanna grow up

I’m starting to think I have a problem. As a little kid, I was obsessed with every book in the Wizard of Oz series. I read them so often, I nearly had all 14 memorized. Eventually, I started sitting on the corner of my bed everyday at noon waiting for Ozma to look in her…

Rock and roll all night

Happiness abounds on campus. The men’s basketball team is going to the Sweet 16. Nat Burton is God. Uh-oh. I just took God out of our University. Maybe, as many Republicans from my part of the country would have you believe, someone will show up to class next week with a gun and kill me…

Letters to the editor

There are a number of mistruths and misrepresentations in the editorial concerning the Senior Class Gift (“Don’t Leave School Without It?” March 15, 2001). First, the money raised for the Class of 2000 Senior Class Gift was not solely allocated to the statue of Georgetown’s Mascot, Jack the Bulldog. In fact, half of the money…

Here kitty, kitty

I miss my cat. My little boo-boo bear is lonely at home without me. I feel so badly for her. I really miss her, and I’m pretty sure she misses me. My little picture of her sits on my desk, so I can look at her whenever I want. If I live off-campus next year,…

Oh the weather outside …

I am so incredibly tired of this weather—not so much because it’s wet and cold, not even because on a bad day my nipples get hard enough to cut diamond; but mainly because the minute there’s a ray of sunshine, you have all these people breaking out their sundresses and sandals and flip-flops, and flouncing…

It ain’t easy being green

The scene went down like this: After having made my way over to the Leavey Center on a lonely weekend afternoon, I found myself waiting at the bank of elevators on the ground floor for a ride up to the fourth floor. After a few moments passed, the doors to the left elevator opened, and…

Weather you like it or not

They are all over America. People such as Shane Butler in Huntsville, Bryan Busby in Kansas City, Cary Carrigan in Fairbanks, Alexandra Steele here in D.C., Pete Delkus in Cincinnati, Tracy Butler in Chicago and even Al Roker and Willard Scott are shining examples of our society’s most expendable quasi-celebrities: They are weathercasters. I have…
