Am I This Person Forever?

Going back home for Winter Break made me feel like I had somehow failed at achieving the full college experience. My response to “How was college?” was not filled with crazy stories about parties in the Mods, exploring downtown Boston, or eye-opening experiences that somehow led me to the major of my dreams.  I wanted…

Moss Eye View

To begin, I’ll assume you are like me. This is to say that you’re a neurotic, and you just happen to be the type of neurotic who dreads decision-making. Simple questions of either/or — either you could take Painting I: Foundations next semester or that 3000-level required-for-your-major class — are life-changing confrontations. These confrontations come…

I’m not white, I’m not pretty

Starting college gives you an opportunity to reinvent yourself. We’re all trying new things like sneaking our way into a mod party through a bathroom window, joining the Outdoor Adventures club, or dying our hair blonde, auburn, bright red—anything far from what our parents would approve of.  I’ve often heard people say they want to…

Mo the MossMan, a Secondary Mascot?

Many have their gripes with Boston College. Some more serious than others. This week, I have chosen to beef with Baldwin.  Now, I have not been personally wronged by our mascot. I am actually quite fond of him. His origin story is probably one of the most entertaining things I have read in a while. …

What Your Unconventional Quirks Say About You

I was convinced that I had seen everything until I watched the guy in front of me in the breakfast line at Mac slap two dollops of ketchup onto his pancakes and walk away like he didn’t just defy the laws of nature. I remember watching this event unfold in front of me and wondering…

Choices, Choices, Choices, and More Choices

Who knew that writer’s block would make me go so deep into the question of choices? As an opinion columnist, I have loads of freedom on topics to talk about, ranging from national politics to everyday life here at Boston College. You would think that with all this freedom it would be so easy for…

Try Fasting this February

Anyone who has ever run cross country or track will fondly remember nights before a race where they stuffed their face full of carbs in order to “load up.” Those same people might be surprised to hear that Ancient Greek athletes, the original Olympians, never carbo-loaded. In fact, they didn’t eat at all before their…

In Defense of the Prequels

The Star Wars prequel trilogy is often remembered for its disastrous special effects, horrible writing, and the atrocity that was Jar Jar Binks. And yeah, it should be remembered for these things, but I’m here to tell you that there is so much more to the trilogy. Hiding beneath distractingly bad elements are some of…

Why the Democrats are Destined to Lose in the Midterms

It’s no secret that the Democratic Party’s slim majorities in both the House and Senate are in a precarious position with the 2022 midterm elections on the horizon. Coupled with the historical trend of the president’s party virtually always losing ground in midterm elections, the situation is made even more grim for the Democrats by…
