As I started my final two weeks of my first full year eating in Northwestern's dining halls, I was craving real, nutritious food that actually tastes good; even more than desserts. That is saying quite a lot for me. This recipe is one of my favorites even though it is a tiny bit more complicated ...

Without guest artists, 2 Chainz is the weakest link

I was really looking forward to spending the next several weeks yelling "2 CHAINZ!" at people as obnoxiously as possible. I was still naive then, and, while it was only yesterday, it feels like at least days since 2 Chainz could be just a silly joke for me to yell at people. Now, after listening to an...

Some days it seems like you barely have enough time in your schedule to shower before class, let alone put together the perfect look. But amazingly, Northwestern is filled with students who manage to look flawless — even with five midterms a week and a thousand extracurriculars. Each week, I'll talk...

Greetings, culture lovers! The end of the year is in sight! Or, at least, if you squint, you can sort of see it … But, with spring comes formals, scholarship balls and other events where wearing sweatpants is not acceptable. I know how difficult it is to navigate social situations that involve...

It’s not a perfect measure, but based on the amount of sweating that occurs from dancing, it is easy to understand that it is an actual workout. And if you enjoy dancing as much as I do, a dance workout is preferable to other forms of cardio. WERQ is one of those fun classes that delivers an effective...

I'm still a little shocked about how well last week's lemon-Earl Grey bars turned out, so I decided to leave my sweets streak and make another breakfast dish: french toast. This easy recipe is even simpler than the quick buttermilk pancakes I made at the beginning of the quarter and just as delicious...

I've heard people talking about this last weekend as "the gap week" for student theater. True, none of the nine major student theater groups on campus put anything up, but there were certainly shows to go see (beyond just the second weekends for "Double Feature" and "Charlotte's Web"). The always anticipated...

Greek Beat: Yakity yak, don’t talk smack

Greetings, culture lovers! I’m going to cut straight to the chase — it’s silly to judge people. It’s silly because we are all pretty much equally terrible. And I do say we, because I’m certainly guilty. I judge people like it’s the career I won’t have after graduation. As for terrible,...
