Dreams Do Come True: Gilmore Girls is Back

18-gilmore-girls

We all know and love Gilmore Girls. I mean, if you didn’t grow up thinking you were either “totally a Lorelei” or “such a Rory” then I don’t understand your life. Go home and stop lying.

Very recently we have learned that Gilmore Girls is making a comeback, on Netflix. There really is a god. This reunion will include four 90-minute episodes, the original cast (YES, EMILY GILMORE FOR THE WIN) and the return of series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.

As a major fan, I am beyond ecstatic. The coffee, the humor, THE FAMILY LOVE. Ugh, can’t you just feel the excitement brewing.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-11302-1363391764-11

Sadly, the late Edward Herrmann will not be reprising as Richard Gilmore. No one can replace him and his Yale wit. He will be missed.

Even Madeline Albright is beyond excited about this event!

If you actually haven’t seen the show, email your teacher for an extension on your paper, pick up a pint a Ben & Jerry’s and four cups of coffee and go spend some quality time with your new bestie, Netflix.

4E’s Fall Fashion Preview 2015

4efallfashion

A few weeks ago, The Hoya released their “Fall Fashion Issue” documenting the hottest trends this year on the Hilltop. They actually did a pretty awesome job, so you should check it out.

It just so happens that 4E was part of that photo shoot, wearing some more alternative clothes naturally. Since only a fraction of the photos from the extensive photo shoot made it to the newspaper, we here at 4E took it upon ourselves (you’re welcome) to publish the exclusive photos that didn’t make the final cut.

So, for the 3rd season in a row (see Fall 2014 and Spring 2015), 4E brings you the Fall Fashion Preview.

We call this one “Fall Fashion for the Fashionably Challenge.”

Jenna jumps for joy for all the fall fashion!

We call this series, “the traveling coat for the college student”:

Hoya Saxa Ca$h Money

willow-2

Who says making money is hard? One Georgetown student is proving that wrong.

Cristina Velasquez (SFS ’17) recently won $1,500 on the Ellen show! How did she do this? She played Ellen’s new show “Whip My Hair Back and Forth.”

 

Despite this being the most ridiculous game ever, the money went to a great cause: breast cancer research! Ellen gave $10,000 to breast cancer research and $1,500 to Cristina herself.

Best part? Cristina got invited to come back in November to see One Direction perform on Ellen. Officially beyond jealous.

Hoya Saxa to you too, Ellen!

Dorm Room Tour Comes to Georgetown

connorleimer

For an hour last Tuesday, Sept. 29, my townhouse became a musical venue. The “Dorm Room Tour,” a U.S. tour featuring indie musician Connor Leimer, entered into my house and I am so happy it did.

Connor is a 19-year-old Kansas born and raised musician. He is traveling across the country, with his videographer Grace, bringing his songs, talent and positive disposition to a variety of college campuses. One of my roommates knew about Connor from Kansas (guess people from Kansas really do stick together) and provided us with this awesome experience.

I gave Connor my polaroid to remember the Hilltop by!
I gave Connor my polaroid to remember the Hilltop!

Connor’s tour, while it only started a week and a half ago, has already hit Nashville, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, DC, Boston, and New York. In addition to playing at my house, Connor also performed the following night in Adams Morgan.

As mainstream I might be, Connor Leimer’s music still moves me. He wrote most of these songs when he was young, a pretty incredible feat. Moreover, Connor is so positive and driven, especially for being so young! He has a backup plan, a contagious positivity and, in my personal biased opinion, the chance to be one of the voices of our generation. His music has such an interesting take on life and can appeal to almost everyone.

Check him out on Spotify, iTunes or YouTube. His new EP, Postcard, was just released (Note: It is amazing).

You probably should also follow him on Instagram and Twitter, as he is basically living the life right now. Good luck with the rest of the tour, Connor!

Mr. Georgetown: Who is the Real Prince Charming?

11221941_10153684329494617_2933051681586731882_n

The Fourth Edition is pleased to present to you, the 2015 Mr. Georgetown Pageant contestants. This year, The Mr. Georgetown Pageant’s theme is Cinderfella and the Disney Princes.

Will they be like this?

giphy

Or more like this?

tumblr_nibzyxd2Hh1qhn17jo1_500

You be the judge. Let’s meet the boys:

Deep Dheri- MR. GUGS

Deep

Hometown: Montville, NJ
School: MSB
Major: Finance & Accounting

What do you love most about your organization? The weekly GUGS grill is the happiest part of my week, every week. From rolling the 150 pounds of raw meat to serving the freshman (or senior) who’s never had a juicy GUGS burger, along with all of the conversations and cornhole that occurs in between, makes for a perfect Friday afternoon.

What is your most beautiful feature? My naturally long and voluminous eyelashes.

What is your spirit animal? Duck. I’m cool, calm and collected on the surface but paddling ferociously under the water.

Joe Luther- MR. GUSA

12043128_10153686386219617_3102728706372332295_n

Hometown: My hometown is River Forest, Illinois. I know because I edited its Wikipedia page one time.
School: What college am I in? I’m in the college.
Major: I am a government major with minors in psychology and sociology, respectively.

What do you love most about your organization? That I can take as many napkins as I want from Chipotle and no one says anything.

What is your most beautiful feature? That my organs all work together like a high school football team before the big game.

What is your favorite song to sing? “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Connor Rohan- MR. IMPROV

Connor

Hometown: I’m from Delmar, NY, which is a hamlet in the town of Bethlehem which is a suburb of Albany, NY which is the capital and 6th largest city in New York State. Albany is also known for being one of the least friendly cities in the world.
School: Georgetown College
Major: Government and English

What do you love most about your organization? I love that improv teaches me to flawlessly navigate a testimony before a grand jury without getting caught up in my lies and being sent to prison. Thanks to the Georgetown Improv Association, I’ll never have to pay for my wicked deeds and die in a six by eight foot concrete cell. Thanks, Improv!

What is your most beautiful feature? If Dove advertisements have taught me anything, it’s that everyone is beautiful. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside. it’s what’s inside that counts. Black or white, male or female, young or old, short or tall, you are beautiful! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! That being said, probably my legs and ass.

What is your favorite song to sing? My band in high school (Rutnik Family Clambake) used to play Whats Up by 4 Non Blondes a lot. We won a talent competition with it once. Very fun song to sing.

Josh Tsung- MR. AASA

Josh

Hometown: Fairfax, VA. But I go home often to the motherland (Taiwan).
School: College
Major: Economics

What do you love most about your organization? I love many things about AASA (Asian American Student Association)- from the events they host to the people in it. The best thing about AASA is that it’s a family- one that brings everyone in as their own, makes you feel comfortable, and creates the culture you want to be a part of when you’re here at Georgetown. Everyone gets along well, jokes around with one another, and we literally do everything together! It’s awesome, I wouldn’t it trade it for the world.

What is your most beautiful feature? People always compliment my butt. But I want to say my most beautiful feature is my smile :)

What is your favorite song to sing? I usually don’t know any lyrics to songs but among the few songs I do know the lyrics to, it’d be a toss up between Wannabe- Spice Girls and Where is the Love- Black Eyed Peas. Anything throwback is a go!

Edwin Lopez- MR. IRC

Edwin

Hometown: El Paso, Texas / Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua (#borderlands).
School: School of Foreign Service
Major: Regional and Comparative Studies between Latin America & Eastern Europe, concentrating on post-violence state development.

What do you love most about your organization? It’s a community of people who love the world! Everyone has a different focus, subject matter, aspiration, etc. I met most of my academic mentors here, and got to participate in fun crisis-simulations, hear ambassadors speak, and be constantly reminded that it is possible to change the world for the better. It was all I wanted Georgetown to be my first few years, and I appreciate the IRC for welcoming me with open arms.

What is your most beautiful feature? I’ve been told it’s my smile, but I rarely look at the mirror and smile at myself, so how about you smile at me next time you’re in Red Square, and I’ll smile back?

What is your spirit animal? Dog (Bichon Frise) – according to the American Kernel Club, the Bichon Frise is “”gentle mannered, sensitive, playful and affectionate,” loves human company, and are bred to be companion dogs.

 

 John Whitmore- MR. NHS ACADEMIC COUNCIL

12075085_10153703145999617_1769568299639573606_n

Hometown: I come from Cleveland, Ohio! I love everything Ohio!
School: NHS
Major: Human Science/Pre Med

What do you love most about your organization? Margot Keale. And the close-knit nature of our community of students and professors. From dinners with the faculty to unforgettable events like Fall Ball (shameless plug), the Nhs academic Council is always seeking to foster these unique NHS relationships. Over the last three years, my greatest student mentors (see you guys there!) at Georgetown have come from this Council, and I want to make all of them proud next week on stage! We also have a killer ratio that would deff get us into Brown House.

What is your most beautiful feature? My body. A smile that was made for selfies. #georgetownstories. Also, I’m humble as fuck.

What is your spirit animal? Sober: Rusty the Dachshund Rusty the Narcoleptic dog; Drunk: Ariana Grande (or at least I try to be)

Sam Wilkins- MR. RELAY FOR LIFE

Sam
Hometown: Sellersville, Pennsylvania
School: College
Major: Government/Theology double Major

What do you love most about your organization? The people. Through Relay For Life, I have met some of the most passionate, dedicated, and energetic people at Georgetown. From the times I make a total fool of myself at bonding events to the moments when I open up about my Mom’s battle with cancer–I know these people will always be there for me, and will never stop fighting for a cure.

What is your most beautiful feature? My disproportionately large butt…thanks Dad.

What is your favorite song to sing? “Paradise By the Dashboard Lights” by Meat Loaf.

Bryn Bogan- MR. NSO

Bryn

Hometown: Chesapeake City, Maryland
School: College
Major: Government (really original, I know)

What do you love most about your organization? There truly isn’t anything else at Georgetown as uplifting as the Saturday of move-in when you walk around campus and see yourself surrounded by smiling parents and slightly embarrassed but equally excited new students being guided to their residence halls and various other offices by OAs and other NSO staff. Never before have I experienced something in which so many people from various backgrounds and communities on the Hilltop come together under one mission quite in the same way as NSO.

What is your most beautiful feature? I mean, have you seen my hair…?

What is your favorite song to sing? I’m going to cheat and say three: 1) Wake Me Up – Avicii (NSO 2013), 2) Shower – Becky G (NSO 2014), 3) Love Myself – Hailee Steinfeld (NSO 2015)

Rob DePaolo- MR. THE HOYA

Rob

Hometown: New Rochelle, New York
School: College
Major: History major and Italian minor

What do you love most about your organization? I’d have to say I love the people most. Producing a paper twice a week is really tough, but part of the reason I enjoyed it so much is I did it with a group of people I now consider great friends. Working hard but having fun at the same time was hard to do, but we struck a balance and made a lot of memories in the process.

What is your most beautiful feature? I’d have to say my hands. They’re very dainty and smaller than one would expect for my size. It catches people off guard, but they’re still quite elegant. Perhaps, like George Costanza, I could be a hand model.

What is your spirit animal? The river otter is what I identify with — I love a good romp.

Kevin Tian- MR. CLUB VOLLEYBALL

11219299_10153693730619617_860350038834354258_n

Hometown: Acton, MA
School: MSB
Major: CS and Finance

What do you love most about your organization? My teammates. We have an interesting arrangement of crazy personalities, but they’re all great guys who know how to work hard, have fun and stick together through tough times.

What is your most beautiful feature? My smile.

What is your favorite song to sing? That changes everyday and depends on the mood, but I’m feling “All I Do” by Majid Jordan at the moment.

Matt Fried- MR. ULTIMATE FRISBEE

Matt

Hometown: Ashland, KY
School: College
Major: Government

What do you love most about your organization? Ultimate was the first family I found at Georgetown.  They’ve always been there for me and always will be.

What is your most beautiful feature? I have an eye of the beholder.

What is your favorite song to sing? It’s tough to beat Gwen Stefani’s classic “Hollaback Girl.” B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

Walter Kelly- MR. BLACK STUDENT ALLIANCE

Walter

Hometown: Linwood, NJ
School: College
Major: English and minoring in Film and Media Studies

What do you love most about your organization? I love the strong sense of community that the BSA builds. Meetings are always thought provoking and engaging, social gatherings feel like family reunions and everyone in the BSA knows how to turn up!!!

What is your most beautiful feature? It’s a tie between my creative spirit and my left eyebrow.

What is your spirit animal? James Earl Jones’s voice.

James Davis- MR. RUNNING CLUB

James

Hometown: Gainesville, FL
School: College
Major: Biology (Pre-Med)

What do you love most about your organization? It’s so tough to pick just one thing, but I’d have to say that I love that GRC is open to all levels of ability. There’s no tryout, audition, or application, so it’s open to anyone, and we have some people who come once a month just to hang out with the group, and others who train 6 days a week with us and travel and compete. This creates a really unique team atmosphere that’s pretty tough to beat. It facilitates friendships like no other, and it also reminds a lot of people who may have gotten caught up in the stress of competition in high school how to really enjoy running again.

What is your most beautiful feature? A girl once told me, “Your eyes are like the Pacific Ocean, and I want to swim in them,” so maybe my eyes.

What is your spirit animal? I always have a hard time with this question…I’d probably have to go with a gator. Chomp chomp.

Maurice McCaulley- MR. ALPHA PHI OMEGA

Maurice
Hometown: Huntsville, AL
School: SFS
Major:Culture and Politics (CULPie)

What do you love most about your organization? SERVICE! being able to serve with the diverse DC community has been really rewarding. I pledged because of the service and I stayed because of service and the amazing friends I made.

What is your most beautiful feature? I love making other people laugh! I really think laughing is an aphrodiasic and if more people laughed the world would be a better place. With that, I have a killer smile (as Tyra woudl say I got the smize down).

What is your spirit animal? Hands down, no question: White Tiger…. did you know that white tigers are genetically mutated and while EXTREMELY beautiful they live most days in pain because their brains are too big for their skulls? Beauty is pain, I guess. I feel, just like the white tiger, I am too beautiful for this world.

Neal Chaudhuri- MR. ESCAPE

Neal

Hometown: Arlington, VA
School: College
Major: Biology

What do you love most about your organization? ESCAPE is a place where people ask, “How are you doing?” and they actually want to hear the answer. There is so much less pressure to say “good” or “well,” especially if you are not feeling great.  Freshman year, I thought I had to convince so many people at Georgetown that I had it all together. I didn’t want people to see me as vulnerable or struggling to adjust to this new environment. On ESCAPE, hearing about and connecting to other students’ experiences allowed me to feel less alone at Georgetown. That is what I and all other ESCAPE leaders hope to provide: a place where first-year students can feel vulnerable, feel valued, and can eat as many s’mores as they want. One of the greatest lessons I learned through ESCAPE is that my vulnerability is my strength, and I am forever grateful to be a part of this program.

What is your most beautiful feature? I have a mutant white hair on my right arm. It grows longer than all my other arm hairs.

What is your favorite song to sing? “Lose Control” by Missy Elliott.

Chris Rom- MR. GERMS

Chris
Hometown: Arlington, VA
School: College
Major: Chemistry

What do you love most about your organization? Helping people in the Georgetown community when they really need it is immensely gratifying, especially since I have the privilege to work with the other awesome members of GERMS while doing so.

What is your most beautiful feature? The shining aura of my positivity.

What is your favorite song to sing? GERMS only has a siren song (lol, top joke that Mr. GUSA), which I can’t quite sing, so I have to split between “Shower” by Becky G and “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey, parts of my NSO 2014 and GRC heritage.

Ed Crotty- MR. PHANTOMS

Ed

Hometown:Cleveland, Ohio
School: MSB
Major: Finance and Accounting

What do you love most about your organization? If I had to pick just one thing I’d say it’s how much I’ve learned from other Phantoms. Since I entered the group over 3 years ago I’ve been surrounded by some of the most talented musicians and people I’ve ever met. Becoming close to them has helped me grow so much as a vocalist and has pushed me to become more involved in other areas on campus, and I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. Well, maybe I’d trade it for the Crown of Mr. Georgetown…

What is your most beautiful feature? My doctor once told me that I had a really nice uvula.

What is your spirit animal? My dog, Amber. She’s basically me if I had no inhibitions. And was colorblind. And was a dog.

Randy Puno- MR. CLUB FILIPINO

Randy

Hometown: Manila, Philippines
School: College
Major: Economics

What do you love most about your organization? We eat so much food. Like literally we’re always eating. I cannot begin to imagine how many sacks of rice and cans of spam I’ve devoured over the last 3 years. We eat a ridiculous amount of food. But in all seriousness, Club Filipino is one big family. I can’t imagine my Georgetown experience without my super funny, ultra-werid, and genuinely great group of CF kapatids.

What is your most beautiful feature? Probably my eyebrows, I have been known to make them do the wave at parties.

What is your favorite song to sing? Anything by Walk the Moon.

Spencer Crawford- MR. TRIATHLON

Spencer
Hometown: I’m from a small city called Maumee in the great state of Ohio.
School: School of Foreign Service
Major: I’m studying STIA with a concentration in Biotechnology and Global Health and I’m pursuing a certificate in Religion, Ethics, and World Affairs.

What do you love most about your organization? I love that the captains still consider me a part of the team despite having attended 0 swim practices. Ever.

What is your most beautiful feature? In general, I’m a pretty optimistic person, probably as the result of my mom’s boundless positivity. I’d say my best feature is being able to glean the positive out of almost any situation.

What is your spirit animal? Without a doubt, I am a baboon.

Which prince has stolen your heart? Buy your tickets while you can and be sure to make it to the show this Friday Oct. 9 at 7pm.

Confessions of a Coffee Addict

coffee

For those of you NARPs who don’t know, today is National Coffee Day. Actually, I am one of those NARPs, seeing as how I didn’t know the holiday was upon us to just recently.

Prior to this I was joking with one of my friends that I was going to go “buy another expensive coffee.” But, now, I actually am going to. I mean, come on, its a celebration!

So in honor of this holiday, and the coffee I am about to consume, here are the five ways you know you are a coffee addict.

1. Morning rituals are extremely important to you. Wake up, check 4E and pour some caffeine in your cup. What would your 11am class be like if you weren’t sipping on a latte?!

588c1850-48df-0133-0a90-0e76e5725d9d-1

2. You are actually scared of how addicted you are. The fact that I can’t stop makes me more nervous than all my upcoming midterms. But, not enough to make me end the addiction.

tumblr_mu9ijf52mw1sdrbqoo3_r1_250

3. Your most intimate relationship is with your Keurig, barista and/or coffee pot. You can depend on them to always be there for you, except when they break suddenly or are too busy with other coffee lovers.

Of course you feel like this when you go and see them
Of course you feel like this when you go and see them and they have time for you.

4. You actually feel happier with a coffee cup in your hand. Endorphins make you happy? More like caffeine makes you happy. And happy people don’t kill their husbands.

tumblr_mq65adJg5v1savtcto1_500

5. This post has driven you to either make or go buy a cup of coffee. I know, I am awfully convincing. Go enjoy that nice cup of happiness.

See you at Saxby’s.

God Bless Our Metro

Washington_DC_metro_-_Gallery

Well, not so much God. Pope bless our Metro. If you haven’t heard, don’t own Snapchat or are just oblivious, the Pope is in town. Yes, that is right, the Holy Father is in the building (and, by building, I mean the District).

Pope Francis leads his general audience in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican Jan. 15. (CNS photo/Paul Haring) (Jan. 15, 2014) See POPE-AUDIENCE Jan. 15, 2014.

Naturally, his presence is going to cause major travel problems across the city. Metro, car, bus… you name it, you probably can’t take it. Personally, I was unable to travel to my internship downtown today because of the Pope. But, hey, I am not complaining about teleworking.

While some people are upset about these travel problems, others are taking a more proactive approach to the problem. One DC citizen has even created a petition, which urges that the Pope bless the D.C. Metro.

Anyone who takes the Metro often knows how many problems it has. It breaks down, it has fires or it just doesn’t show up. We, the citizens of D.C., cannot seem to win. Even when no one important is in town (Read: Not the normal characters), it still doesn’t run in a timely or orderly fashion.

So, Mr. Rosenheck has decided to take matters into his own hands:

Screen Shot 2015-09-23 at 2.05.47 PM

This is obviously so necessary, the Metro is out of control. Will a blessing help the problem, though? The D.C. Metro is in a transition now, so maybe a religious blessing is what we need?

So, would you sign the petition?

Thanks to the DCist for this extremely important information.

Meet the New 4E Bloggers

new bloggers

This past weekend, 4E hired eight new, fantastic bloggers! We interviewed a bunch of capable and hilarious bloggers, but these were the eight who caught our eye. We’ve met them, now it is time for you to meet them too:

Katrina Vassell (MSB ’17)

When You Know You Are A Hoya:
klkjk (1)

1. When the acronym of your organization is harder to pronounce than the actual name. I’m looking at YOU GUASFCU… or GUAFSCUE… or GUSEFSCU, whatever it is.

2. When you’re unqualified to join the investment fund, but get an internship at Goldman Sachs.

3. When your social life is dictated by your extracurricular activities and your largest, most prestigious fraternity is a coffee shop.

Caroline Platek (COL ’17)

When Playing “The Final Countdown” Would Make Sense:

263502_10150215254094856_8176281_n

1. When Midnight Mug is about to close and you’ll be at LAU for an allnighter, and realize with 2 minutes to spare that you’ll never stay awake without a Midnight Mug treat. And in that moment, you realize there’s no time for organizing your books or packing up shop. So you must trust a fellow cubicle user to “watch my stuff” and then you race down those LAU steps like that MUG snack is the last snack you’ll ever consume. You make it in time, you get your treat, you pull the all-nighter and you have successfully completed the assignment that you started the night before. Hooray.

2. You are thinking of spending the night “with Netflix” and your friends decide to hit the town. You wish them a good time and wrap up in your snuggie like you’re the star of that classic infomercial. Your friends go to that place you all enjoy, and they text you when they arrive because they see the love of your life in the venue. They are about to go to another location and tell you that you should come to the current one within 15 minutes or else they are leaving. You can’t give up on love — this might be your soul mate. So you get ready, you spray the fragrance that tells the world “It’s showtime” and you meet your friends in the nick of time. You’ve landed your crush, you’ve had a good night and you’ve proven that the best nights are those that were not planned.

Lauren Salamon (COL ’19)

The People You’ll Meet Walking on Your First Day:

rwrewrw

1. The Supportive Upperclassman: This person is the best. They probably see you looking dangerously confused in the ICC. “Umm… do you know how to get to 107?” you ask. This friendly stranger will show you the way.

2. The Fellow Freshman: You notice this person a few feet away, also staring at their schedule in a perplexed manner. “Are you a freshman, too?” you ask. Of course they are. You are of little help to one another.

3. The Inanimate Object: If it gets to the point where you are already three minutes late to class, you may curse vengefully at a stagnant elevator or whisper a profanity at another staircase. It’s really their fault, anyway.

When Blacking Out Would Actually Be Helpful:

1. Morning after call to the ‘rents telling them you’ve been GERMSed again. #lookatyourlife

2. Falling on your ass in front of your crush at Brown House with a BAC of 0.00%.

3. That one time in Yates where your hottie-spotting to treadmill-walking ratio went from 0 to 100 and you just stood there gaping at the booty for a solid 15 minutes.

The Most Underrated Fruits:

66137_476098039123344_182618910_n

1. Grapefruit. Grapefruit is the best citrus out there, and the reason that people don’t agree with me on this is not because I’m “incorrect” or “care too much about grapefruit,” it’s because they’ve never encountered a spoon with serrated edges, “a grapefruit spoon” that allows you to enjoy your delicious grapefruit without all the juice going everywhere. And grapefruit is not too sour, it’s perfectly tangy and delicious. People who don’t like the taste of grapefruit are either: a. children who can’t handle the real world or b. eating under ripe grapefruit.

2. Not Pomegranate. Before you say it, yes, I know, pomegranate does taste good, and pomegranate juice is pretty great. But this isn’t a list of best fruits, and pomegranate is undoubtedly the most overrated fruit. Every time someone actually buys a whole pomegranate, everyone loses their collective mind, but when it comes to actually eat the thing, it’s such a let down. Too many gross tiny seeds, not enough juice and overall just a lot of work. 4/10 overall.

3. Blackberries. Blackberries are great. Shoutout to blackberries.

Best Excuses Not to Take Stairs:

unnamed (1)

1. I just ate. This is probably true 87.8% of the time.

2. It was leg day yesterday. This makes me seem like I’m in shape, but in reality, if I took the stairs it would be my leg day today.

3. I’m don’t want to get sweaty because I’m going on a date. Even though it is even less likely for me to be going on a date than walk up the stairs, normal people will never question the logic because they go on dates and know the importance of looking good. I also rather admit that I may sweat after walking up stairs than actually taking the stairs.

The Workers on Campus You Need to Hear About:

11902333_10207651476273292_1652654303168882307_n

1. Leo’s Card Swipper. This guy sure does have a way with Georgetown students (read: ladies). If you’re a female, he might even grace you with a hearty hello! His everlasting smile and friendly demeanor make him a staple in the fine dining establishment that is O’Donovan’s Waterfront Dining.

2. Einstein’s Sweetheart. You haven’t experienced a true “woman for others” until you’ve met this woman, who runs the show at the Einstein’s in Regents. She prays for you, and will tell you about how she cares for you before you’ve met her. This woman is literally the nicest being on campus. Just try not to smile when you’re near her.

3. Einstein Celebrity. Did you know we have a celebrity of our very own on campus? Bagel artist at the Car Barn Einstein’s by day, beat dropper by night, this lady lives a double life as one of DC’s most respected female rappers. Quiet behind the counter, this diva drops some sick lines in her freestyle raps found here. Check her out!

The Best Places to Poop on Campus:

hghjgkh

These places were found based on the merit of cleanliness, privacy, and overall proximity/accessibility on campus.

1. Healey Family Student Center. Private Family Bathroom. Located right before the public women/men bathrooms. Near the Bulldog Tavern. This single stall, clean bathroom is in one of Georgetown’s most popular study spots. You can do your work and your “business” in silence.

2. Davis Performing Arts Center. Located on the lower floor. This place is empty during the day, just don’t go during a show night.

3. Regents. First floor, past the doors. Most science majors are too sleep deprived to even notice the smell.

Look out for their new blog posts coming soon! Welcome to the fam, guys.

The Five Times When You Know You Are A Senior

SENIORS

I am officially old. And, by old, I mean 20. But, I am a senior, which means I have three years of classes, parties and Wisey’s cookies to look back on.

Everyone always talks about how senior year is the best and so fun, but I think that someone has been lying to me. Don’t get me wrong, I always have a good time at Georgetown. But senior year, at least the fall, is beyond stressful. You’ve got classes, clubs, relationships (LOL or lack there of), internships, job recruitment and bills. Honestly, the list could go on and on.

So, in light of what I have experienced the last few weeks, here are the five times when you now you are a senior at Georgetown: 

1. You have explained Tuscany’s so many times that you are depressed. The youth has been deprived. I explained the saga of going to Tuscany’s yesterday and actually got emotional. Who doesn’t miss the curb sing-a-longs? Or, wait, was that just me?

2. People expect you to know things. While I love all my new bloggers, who you will meet soon, they are definitely giving me too much credit. I say such nonsense. Words. Am I making up things? Most likely.

I know less than Michael Scott.

3. You don’t know what Leo’s serves anymore. Literally I am looking for someone with a meal plan to take me to Leo’s for a #TBT. I miss it. I never thought I would say that. The kids these days keep mentioning these new stations and options, and I just shrug and disappear into the corner.

4. You would rather have a party with only your friends than spend the night at Rugby. Or Chimes. Or Brown House. Or SigEp (RIP Pink House). Why isn’t it socially acceptable to just sit around with my, like, 15 friends and gossip about people? I’ve met everyone at this school anyway!

5. You cringe whenever you heard the G-word. And by that I mean graduation. Cringe. You can’t conceptualize how scary the real world is until you are sitting at your billionth information session at the career center thinking, “How the f*** did I get here?”

Thank god graduation isn’t for a few more months. I am not ready to be kicked out yet.
