We all love our parents, but after a full weekend with them, who doesn’t want a little bit time alone? Luckily, we have a handy list of ways to ditch your parents and get some time to yourself. Fake having a midterm: Say it’s a Saturday afternoon and you just want to take a quick nap or play a quick game of pong. Tell your parents that you have an “astro midterm” on Monday that you really need to study for. If your parents are anything like mine, they will insist that you go study, just as long as you meet them at the preapproved dinner time. Swing by the library for some KAF or to say hi to your friends who actually are doing work and then go do whatever you wanted to do. Suggest that your parents go on a hike: Thanks to all the rain, the weather is going to be pretty nice this weekend. Mention all the trails around campus and the great family photo opportunities. Then, “forget” your tennis shoes or “twist” your ankle. If your parents insist on staying behind with you, tell them it’s fine, and you’ve gone to the fire tower plenty… Read more »
I’ve been hearing a ton of rave reviews recently about the renowned Worthy Burger, so this week I decided I had to try it out for myself. Located about a half hour’s drive from campus in South Royalton, Vermont, the restaurant has a slightly rustic vibe that is thankfully accompanied by three ceiling fans and an air conditioner inside. The Worthy Burger atmosphere is a friendly hum of activity: the bar scene was hopping as ragey 30-somethings turned down for draft beers on this Tuesday night, the air had the slight tinge of wood smoke and the sound of chattering customers filled the seating area. After ordering at the counter and receiving my buzzer to alert me when my food would be ready, I sat down to wait for the results. My friend and I chose a quiet corner that boasted both a darts board and a framed picture of a woman holding a poodle with, inexplicably, the words “It Puts The Buzzer In The Basket” in red letters. Other pictures and paintings of various levels of normalcy took up the rest of the wall space. But enough about the décor — my food buzzer went off, and I wasn’t… Read more »
The Burlington Coats, otherwise known as Barbary Coast Lite, performed some smooth jazz outside Collis yesterday evening.
Dartmouth is an extremely fit place as far as college campuses go. Nearly a quarter of undergraduate students are varsity athletes and three-quarters of undergrads participate in a form of athletics, including club and intramural sports. There is also, however, an extremely large NARP (non-athletic regular person) contingency on this campus, although you may not have guessed it. If you’re a member of this exclusive grouping, chances are you already have some tactics for hiding it or you’ve fully embraced your NARP status. But if you’ve found yourself lost, searching for answers in a sea of rowers and football players, we would like to help. 1. Always go to the gym at the most popular times of the day. Honestly, I don’t know what these times are, but find out and be there! It really doesn’t matter much what you do at the gym, but soon people will start coming up to you and saying things like, “Do you spend all your time here?” The facetime is crucial. Maximize it by taking one of the first machines on the main floor. 2. Regardless of your activity level for the day, wear athletic clothes. Sure, you may just be lying in… Read more »
It’s sophomore summer, a time of tanning by the river and reading on the Green. Of course, each beautiful Hanover day we get comes at a price: the ever-looming threat of a sporadic downpour. There’s no rhyme or reason to this crazy New England weather, and even the forecasts can’t seem to get it down. Ever since I had to dump my bag on two of my roommates I saw walking so I could finish biking home through a sudden downpour a few weeks ago, I’ve been extra paranoid about making sure I’m prepared for the all-too-common swings in New Hampshire weather. Here are some tips I’ve accumulated through my own rainy experiences to avoid getting caught unprepared in the rain. 1. Move your bike under cover or indoors when you’re not riding it, or it will start to look like this. 2. Always check the forecast before setting out for the day… not that it will be of much use. Don’t be fooled by the sunshine—those storms roll in fast. If there’s the slightest chance of rain, bring a rain jacket. 3. On that note, bring an umbrella too, just in case. In fact, bring two, so you can… Read more »
No, that wasn’t a typo. It really is week six of 14X already, and for 16s that means you’re more than halfway through with the famed sophomore summer. At this time of the term, midterms have started up (14Xtremelybehind) and you may find yourself staring at a behemoth of a bucket list with no check marks or slashes through marking completion. Don’t worry, we know how you feel.
1. You’ve hardly done any of your readings/problem sets/any kind of work whatsoever for your classes.
2. That bucket list we mentioned? Yeah, better get started on that one too.
3. Wait, you have how many exams/papers/projects due this week?!
4. And your family arrives on Friday?!
5. Brain is in overload and can’t function.
6. Decide that it’s all a lost cause and retire to your bed to watch Netflix and nap, simply pretending that all the work and stress don’t exist.
