It would be a crime to shove all Indian cuisines into the category of “Indian food.” There are at least 10 main categories of Indian food with many other subcategories — butter chicken with naan is barely representative of the diversity of Indian food. Though, butter chicken with naan is amazing.
Hopefully, it is not boring to see my name on yet another piece about a running event because, this time, there is a celebratory twist!
Congratulations, Blue Jays — you made it to spring break! For those of you leaving Baltimore, safe travels! If you’re sticking around, however, check out these events happening in the area.
Mist rolled over the marshy east bank of the Potomac River into the low-lying swampland that would become the neighborhood of Foggy Bottom. As an intern in Foggy Bottom this spring, I have the privilege of exploring one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington D.C.
Sundays are for three things: homework, laundry and the weekend debrief. The first two lack the importance of the third, but we have to be somewhat productive. I was craving my weekend debrief with friends, but the dining hall atmosphere wasn’t exactly appealing. I needed to leave campus to cure my Sunday scaries. So I called my friend, freshman Kamila Wong, and we went to the one place I knew would do the job: Kong Pocha.
Last weekend, craving some brunch, a group of News-Letter editors traveled down to Spoons in Federal Hill. Only a 20-minute drive or 30-minute bus ride from the Homewood Campus, the spot presents a convenient opportunity to get off campus and have brunch with friends to start off the weekend.

Running can be intimidating, especially when you’re in a new place, but it doesn’t have to be! If you want to explore Charm City to its fullest, you have to escape the “Hopkins bubble.” To us, there is no better way to do that than in a pair of running shoes with a few good friends. Here are some of our favorite running trails around Baltimore, ranging from easy runs with little hills to long runs that will take you all around the city, with a detailed run-down of each route!
After a minor Blue Jay Shuttle confusion, my friend and I arrived at Mona’s Super Noodle just in time for our 7:30 p.m. reservation. It was a Thursday night and every table was taken, save for ours — a good sign. The hostess graciously welcomed us, sat us at the open high-top table and left us to ponder over the menu.
Picture the AMR II communal kitchen: there’s three-day old leftovers in the fridge (not ours), a dirty pot in the sink (also not ours), freshmen flitting in and out to warm up ramen (couldn’t be us) and, finally, seven girls sitting at the table. We all just wanted to try Shirlene’s pasta.

It can only mean one thing when CVS reveals its overwhelming stock of heart-shaped chocolate boxes and multicolored rose bouquets: Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Though we tend to associate Feb. 14 with romantic love, the holiday actually encourages the celebration of love in all of its forms: platonic love, familial love and self-love, to name a few.
Whether you are planning on celebrating Valentine’s Day with a significant other or with friends, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that Feb. 14 is rapidly approaching! If you’re still in need of Valentine’s Day plans, you’re in the right place.

It’s February, and, as always, some of us are feeling behind on last month’s New Year’s resolutions. Change is hard to make, and it’s an accomplishment to even want to make a change in the first place. Going on social media and seeing everyone else’s goals adds pressure to making the “right” goals or wanting change fast.
This weekend, take some time to explore Baltimore’s arts scene without breaking the bank!
It goes without saying that Hopkins students are busy — and I don’t mean nine-to-five busy but rather a breed of busy that translates into an overcrowded, color-coded Google calendar with few breaks penciled in. So as dreamy as an afternoon curled up with a book may sound, finding those spare moments of leisure is hard, and picking out a good book only eats into that already-scarce time. Recognizing that, I’ve done the hard part for you: I read 142 books last year and highlighted five worth your precious free time.
