Bright Street Lights

Fiction by Daniel James ’11Street lights. That’s the first thing I remember seeing in the darkness. There’s no sound outside of those damn humming noises from the dull bulbs that create little craters on the pavement. I assume that there are houses next to me, surrounding me, even.

Painted Flowers

Fiction by Dara Plath ’13The boy walked next to the sidewalk. He dragged his feet against the sun-cooked road, creating a scraping sound with each step.

Senior Says PC Going in Wrong Direction

I saw a lot of tours this past week, especially last weekend. It was a long weekend and there were accepted student days or something like that.

Tangents & Tirades

Finish Your Vegetables! In a country where almost 49 million lack consistent access to adequate food, it is inexcusable that 40 percent of all food produced is thrown out. To wash this down, one-quarter of all freshwater consumption is associated with food waste. Friends, feel very free to ignore my militant vegetarianism, my illogical tears when you hold a plastic water bottle in your hand, or my not stepping on the same ground your leather shoes have just stepped on. I beg you, however, do not ignore my glaring, with the intensity of a thousand solar-powered flashlights, when you wastefully throw out Ray Dining Hall products. I do not care how bad it tastes, I do not care that you were mistaken in picking it. No, I will not ship it to the hungry myself. No, you may not watch television until you finish it.
