Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down: Week Of Feb. 15

Thumbs Up:  Heart-shaped everything One of the perks of having a love-themed holiday is the absolutely adorable decorations that come with it. Dorms are adorned with cut-out hearts and decorating valentines with heart stickers is undeniably cute (even if they’re for your friends). Even the conversation candies are shaped like little hearts!  More candy Speaking…

Thumbs Up Celebrating Thanksgiving safely Thanksgiving won’t look the same for anyone this year, but that doesn’t mean we have to lose the spirit of the holiday! Have dinner with your roommates if you’re staying on campus or have a family Zoom hangout. Your grandparents may struggle with technology, but it’s better than giving them…

Thumbs Up: Election Results:
Regardless of who you voted for, we can all agree that this five day election-marathon was emotionally exhausting. The back and forth between multiple news sources made for an extremely stressful election and constant tab-refreshing. Final election results mean we can officially say goodbye to this century-long week in which every email started with, “In these trying times.”

If you can vote, then it is your civic responsibility to do so. If you’re voting in-person on election day in Massachusetts, polls open anywhere from 5:45 am to 7 am and close at 8 pm.

Thumbs Down: People Who Don’t Like Candy Corn
This thumbs down is kind of a double negative—apologies to our copy team. That being said, candy corn is literally honey-flavored nostalgia.

You’re welcome.

Thumbs Up: Flies. Flies everywhere are really having a moment. From the national debate stage to…the national debate stage. Five years ago, could you ever have imagined that the one thing you would take away from a vice presidential debate would be that a fly landed on Mike Pence’s hair? #flygate

Thumbs Up Grass – The type on the ground. Shoutout to Leahy’s grass by Stokes for making such an incredible rebound. It looked like a battlefield after College Gameday, and our pre-Thanksgiving snow day didn’t especially help it recover from its hangover, no matter how much Gatorade we could conceivably pour on it. Just weeks later,…

Thumbs Up Self-Titled Albums – Oftentimes, it’s an artist’s first album. If it’s not, it probably marks some dramatic change in their sound. They’re the albums that you remember—people only ever remember other album titles if it’s a truly fantastic set of songs, and even then, it’s not a given. But self-titled albums are usually an…
