Emotions:

What was your favorite year at Georgetown? Why?

That’s tough, because each year was great for different reasons, but I would say senior year! These last two semesters have been full of solidifying friendships, bar crawls during Dis-O and Dis-0 2.0 were some of the most fun nights out in college, and reflecting on my Georgetown experience as a whole and how blessed I am.

Junior year – knew the most people on campus. Senior friends still around, and knew tons of underclassmen. Also, in important positions in student groups.

Every year seems so uniquely different and great in its own way, but I think sophomore year was the most fun! However, all the nights I’ve spent on the Tombs dance floor this year makes senior year one of the best, for sure!

Sophomore year: had found my friends, understood how the school worked and how to do well in classes, knew my way around campus and I also did not have the stress Junior/Seniors have finding internships and jobs and planning for after graduation.

Too hard to choose, definitely the best 4 years so far!

What was your most memorable experience? Why?

Cheering on the basketball team with my two best friends!

Swimming in the fountain during sophomore year! After a night out, around 4am, my friend and I decided it was going to be the night we would swim in the fountain. Once we approached Dahlgren quad, we kicked our shoes off and started sliding around the fountain laughing our butts off. I am happy to say that I checked that Georgetown tradition off the bucket list!

Homecoming, Georgetown Day, late nights at Tombs and running to the White House the night of Obama’s re-election in 2012. But of course, I have some great memories from classes and academic experiences, too that will (hopefully) stick with me forever. In summary: thanks for the memories, Georgetown!

Singing in the Let Freedom Ring Choir on MLK Weekend during freshman, sophomore and senior year. It is an incredible demonstration of what our university stands for today, and also so much fun!

There are too many memorable experiences to count and I can’t name just one because each of my favorite experiences at Georgetown is memorable in its own way and has its own unique story behind it.

Thanks for the memories, seniors! We will miss you so much and cannot wait to see you all back on the Hilltop soon! Congrats, Class of 2015!

Childhood Stars Comeback?

Lizzie-McGuire-Disney-Channel-Shows-

With all these surprise albums and collaborations coming out, we at 4E have noticed that we’ve been having a hard time keeping up with who’s who in the music world. Take FKA Twigs, for example. She has suddenly blown up and all we find ourselves doing is scratching our heads at the mention of her name.

Times like these are when we wish we were back in the glory days of the early 2000’s, when we all listened to Hannah Montana on our Disney Mix Sticks and ‘N sync on our Hit Clips.

To ease your confusion with the present day music scene, we’ve decided to make a list of our top 5 childhood music stars that we wish would make a comeback. Hopefully this list will also help ease the fact that Disney Channel and Nickelodeon are no longer the same channels they used to be. #TBT

  1. Aaron Carter. This little stud first gained popularity because of the fact that his older brother Nick Carter is in the Backstreet Boys. His first studio album had the hits “I Want Candy” and “Aaron’s Party (Come and Get it)” that had us all bouncing in our seats and jamming to our Walkmans. We miss how it felt to be carefree kids, going to house parties at 10 years old that we thought were so cool. The feeling of pure ignorance as a kid is what made Aaron Carter so successful, and as college students struggling through midterms, I’m sure we could all use some of that right now. aaron carter
  2. The Cheetah Girls. Who didn’t love this dynamic pop group? Their songs were filled with messages of girl power and staying true to yourself, and their movies took us on adventures through Spain and India. Everyone had the lyrics to “Strut” and “Cheetah Sisters” memorized (we’re sure you still do) and in all they were just a feel-good group that reminded us all that we have friends that have our backs through the good and the bad.the cheetah girls
  3. Aly and A.J. If you don’t remember this duo, you’re lying. These are the pop princesses that brought you “Potential Breakup Song” and “Chemicals React” (which we still jam to these days) and were part of the few Disney Channel stars that could actually sing and were not just thrown a recording contract for being on a hit T.V. show. We loved them for their electro-pop influences and their ability to act as well (remember Phil of the Future?) and we need more of their sassy/sweetness in our lives.Aly_&_AJ_-_Insomniatic
  4. Jesse McCartney. This hunk was in the hearts of all teenagers who had a radio/eyes during the 2000’s. He appeared in shows like Summerland and All My Children, and was in the boy band Dream Street, but really captured our hearts when he went solo and released his first album “Beautiful Soul”. This album won him multiple Kids Choice Awards (throwback!) and paved his Disney career until 2007. We miss his dreamy eyes and gorgeous hair and wish he would call our pretty faces sometime. jesse mccartney
  5. Lizzie McGuire/Hilary Duff. The epitome of the 2000’s was without a doubt, Lizzie McGuire. The TV show and following movie inspired preteens and adolescents everywhere to follow your dreams and that it was okay to have an alter ego that was a cartoon character. Her music was equally uplifting, and we still haven’t gotten over the fact that Paolo set her up to be embarrassed in front of Italy. But who else would show us what dreams are made of?Lizzie and Isabella

There you have it, our wishlist for surprise albums from our (and your) favorite artists of the early 2000’s. Feeling nostalgic yet?
