As a prospective lawyer, I have an embarrassing confession to make: I finally saw Legally Blonde for the first time this week. Whenever the movie would come up in conversation, I would always nod, smile and chuckle, hoping no one could tell I was bluffing my way through.

Instead, the film sparked an epiphany for me, leading me to set new principles for myself.

NBA fans love to rank players and debate who is better than who, and this list provided new fuel for those fires. But frankly, the NBA fumbled this one in multiple ways.

The University announced on Oct. 26 that food and drink will be permitted at outdoor events.

“When I was in ninth grade, I started this little group called Myanmar Children Health Project (MCHP). Our goal was something to do about healthcare in Myanmar for underserved people, people who lived in rural areas, et cetera. But we didn’t really know what we were doing, and we were just like, ‘Okay, let’s vaccinate people.’ So we organized a fund for Hepatitis B vaccinations. I remember the first event I went to was, I guess, one of the most eye-opening events that I had.”
