  Ugly polos, fanny packs, bucket hats. The fashions of 2019 saw the rise of VSCO girls and e-boys, balanced popularity between cheap thrifting and designer sneakers and waves of retro nostalgia brought on in part by TV in the veins of "Stranger Things" or "Friends" — all for the better or wo...

Bildungsroman: The Trauma of Happy Endings

  Once — and I say "once" in the liberalist, most distancing, self-deceptive sense, like we don’t still live "once" and that "once" won’t come to bite us in the ass — there was an idealist. A baby faced, bright-eyed, daydreaming — though she would have called it philosophizing — idealist...

Palak Jayswal While summer is my seasonal time to read without the nagging feeling that I could be doing 30 other important tasks, fall and winter are my binge-watching seasons. It's far too easy to climb into bed and binge a couple of episodes instead of doing, well, anything else. "Law and Order:...

In the darkness of the morning, I roll over and begin scrolling through my phone. As I get ready, the latest Billie Eilish album runs on repeat.

November 7, 2019

Unless you have removed yourself from the social internet or exist only in a secluded corner of the digital world, you’ve probably seen some version of the viral video where Kylie Jenner wakes up her daughter Stormi by singing the phrase “rise and shine.” If you haven’t seen the original clip, it starts with Jenner talking to the camera before entering her daughter’s room. It then cuts to the next clip where Jenner flips on the lights, stands over her daughter’s crib and soulfully croons the harmonic lullaby. The nine-second clip was taken from a vlog uploaded to Youtube on Oct. 10 and explod...

  Palak Jayswal September quickly turned into a month of nostalgia for me. It’s always interesting to be able to turn back to old art — whether it’s music, tv or a good book — and relive the feelings you experienced when you first consumed it. For me, September consisted of reminis...
