Lessons From Oscar Winning Director Barry Jenkins

Lessons From Oscar Winning Director Barry Jenkins

Earlier this term, I got the awesome privilege of meeting one of my heroes, Barry Jenkins. Barry—the Oscar-winning director of the film Moonlight (If you haven’t seen it yet, do it!!)—was invited to share some of his experiences at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. […]

Elsa’s ice castle

Elsa’s ice castle

Okay. That’s an exaggeration. It’s not as grandiose as Elsa’s castle, and you cannot wear Elsa’s dress there without freezing, but it’s actually a castle made of ice (perks of living in New Hampshire)!!! I went there last Friday, and it was an interesting experience. […]

Ringing in lunar new year

Ringing in lunar new year

Friday, February 16 marked the first day of the lunar new year, the year of the dog. Since this was the first time I was away from my family during the new year, I wanted to make sure that I still celebrated the holiday, albeit […]

Dreams of Sedona

Dreams of Sedona

A Cabin and Trail break trip to remember. I’m a Northeasterner in every regard; from the people to the climate, every aspect of it has always seemed to suit me like no place else. I can’t say that I really had to opportunity to travel […]

How Dartmouth has spoiled me

How Dartmouth has spoiled me

I’m back again, peeps! My break was awesome, as I could both go home and travel to New Orleans, Boston, and New York with my friends! Other than the fact that I didn’t do any of my winter reading, so now I’m low-key cramming an […]

Walk on to Women’s Water Polo

Walk on to Women’s Water Polo

As a former (very burnt out) high school competitive swimmer, I came to Dartmouth thinking that I never wanted to jump into a pool again. That decision quickly changed when I met Hallie and PJ, two ’17s on the water polo team, my freshman fall. […]

I-can-still-remember

As my first term here is wrapping up, I think it would be fun to have a low-key I-can-still-remember post 🙂 I can still remember that moment when I parted with my best friend as I left South Station to get on the Dartmouth Coach. […]
