I talks good

I dreaded every Friday of the second grade. That was the day that the school speech therapist came and pulled me out of class. Even at eight years old, I was slightly skeptical; I didn’t really know why they were pulling me out of class. The way I heard it, I sounded fine. So what…

How I spent my spring vacation

The first thing you notice about Cuba is the color. Thick green leaves shade pink colonial buildings, which stand out against a clear blue sky. Old red Chevrolets motor past tiny, fenced-off orange houses, and the remarkable amount of concrete brown fades away as other colors become brighter and brighter. In the country, green and…

Sweet home Alabama, er, Virginia

“Fairfax is a nice place, I suppose. Convenient to get to work from, it’s got some nice restaurants and a good school system. But no one is really from there. Well, I guess you are.” So said the overly-chatty woman who had decided that the two-hour flight was her opportunity to hold court on my…

Hey! Weren’t you in my dream last night?

By:

I never really held any belief in the potency of my dreams. If anything, this stems from the fact that, until recently, I seldom had them and didn’t really want to feel like I was missing out. All this has changed. Now, when my head finally hits the pillow, I intensely concentrate on telling myself…

They come from France …

Everyone, and I mean everyone, hates the people who come back from studying abroad convinced that they have “become” Spanish or have “discovered” that they were born with a French soul. They’re the people you see at Uncommon Grounds saying things like, “Well, of course, Italian coffee is just superior to anything you can get…

College Twilight Zone

By:
03/01/2001

I’m a believer in equilibrium: Nature abhors a vacuum. People never change. The pendulum swings back and forth. My faith in stasis, however, doesn’t prevent me from having an existential crisis every time I have to make a decision. Four years ago, choosing a college satisfied my need to debate inconsequential “pluses” and “minuses” of…

Downhill disaster

By:

People assume that because I’m from northern Illinois I love snow. They fail to realize, though, that a baffling affection for flecks of frozen water is not genetically inherent just because a person happened to be born in a certain area of the country. I hate snow. In fact, I detest it. It’s cold, it’s…

Clarification

The February 22 editorial “Give US A Break” should have noted that the non-violent protest to which the Kildea/LaMotte ticket objected was the 1999 sit-in organized by the Georgetown Solidarity Committee. The sit-in was a response to the unfair labor practices allowed by the Collegiate Licensing Committee, which held a contract with the University for…

Hey! What’s under there? Under where?

By:

It takes a lot to embarrass me. I am the girl who does the kind of stuff you thought little teens made up to submit to Seventeen magazine’s “Poor Me: Listen to This” section. I do things such as tuck my skirt into my stockings or trip while walking across a stage in front of…
