Hey! What’s under there? Under where?

By:
02/22/2001

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…

They come from France …

By:
02/22/2001

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…

What a difference a year makes

By:

One year ago, I was in a very different place. One year ago, I was nearly dead. One year ago, I was in the hospital trying to keep myself alive. A black cloud, a feeling of impending doom had begun to take over my life several months earlier. And one year ago, it took over…

The irony of beer

By:
02/15/2001

Beer is one of the most ugly things I’ve ever seen. It’s yellow and foamy, and it reminds me of a polluted waterfall as it pours over the edge of a tall glass. If you have ever listened carefully to a drunken conversation, you’ll know that people talk about the most insane things when they’re…

Animal house

The scum-sucker is staring at me. He’s hovering underneath the fake pink and green sea foliage, gills furiously slapping against his body, top fin arched high over his beady little orange-rimmed eyes, glaring at this decidedly unaquatic monstrosity peering down at him. “Doesn’t this THING understand that the sole requirement of scum sucking is absolute…

The cost of U.S. policy in Iraq

By:
02/15/2001

The United States’ policy towards Iraq has been without a sane “helmsman” for the past 20 years. The United States actively supported Saddam Hussein even while he committed human rights crimes against his own people. In fact, the Bush and Reagan administrations provided Hussein with expertise regarding nuclear, biological and chemical weapons in addition to…

God I hated growing up

By:
02/08/2001

Over winter break, I had a discussion with a guy I had started seeing, Mike, about whether or not it was a wise idea to raise children with religion. My mom is Catholic, and my dad is Jewish. Neither of them had been practicing for at least 15 years before I was brought into the…

The whole world in your backyard

By:
02/08/2001

I came to Georgetown for the diversity. The place sounded great, the number of international students was impressive and the options for study abroad were numerous. Coming from a relatively small and semi-rural town in Colorado, I was astounded by the different people I met. My first roommate was from Singapore, and I shared my…
