Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down: Week Of April 19

Thumbs Up: 

  • Erasable Highlighters
    • Pilot makes erasable writing tools, including the god-tier of erasable highlighters. They don’t smudge, they don’t bleed through textbook pages, and they’re completely erasable. 
  • Covid-19 Vaccines
    • April 19 is finally here, which means that Covid-19 vaccinations are available for everyone 16 and older in Massachusetts. Pre-register for an appointment at mass.gov or use Vaxfinder to find available locations. Getting vaccinated means that life at BC, and in general, can slowly start to go back to normal, which is definitely a thumbs up! 

Thumbs Down: 

  • Snow in April
    • For those who had good weather on their minds, unfortunately this Friday was a one-day hiatus. What weather apps called a light rain storm became a heavy snowfall in the middle of April. Hang tight though, Tuesday is due to be 70 degrees and sunny once again. 
  • Dressing For All Seasons
    • Spring and fall in the Northeast are defined by erratic temperatures that require a dynamic closet. Just when it seems time to ship snow boots and winter jackets back home, it snows in April, and that sundress sitting in your closet is obsolete.
