If I had it my way, the Christmas season would never overlap with final exams, but there is one advantage to having the busiest time of the year with the most wonderful time of the year: stress-baking. Whether as a study break or a post-exam celebration, the sound of my hand mixer beating butter into creamy peaks is always a cathartic experience. In addition, having too many cookies for one person to eat is the perfect excuse to drop off some snacks for friends who might be in study mode.
As I get older, I find myself searching for more productive and wholesome yet educational activities to do with friends to pass the time. While going off campus and visiting new sites is also a fun and new experience, it can really eat up a lot of time and money that many college students can’t afford to sacrifice. So, what’s there to do on a Friday night that’s economical, fun, low effort and easily accessible for everybody?

We’ve made it to the final stretch before break! While next week might be spent in Brody getting ahead on assignments before Thanksgiving, take some time this weekend to explore Baltimore and enjoy the beautiful fall weather with friends.
The weather is getting colder, and the semester is getting harder. It’s time to take care of your mental health and step out of the Hopkins bubble this weekend, even if just briefly. Take advantage of this weekend’s events before it gets too cold outside!
Fall is finally here.
Every October, I commit myself to watching as many horror movies as I can. I check out suspicious DVDs from the library and scour streaming platforms for hidden gems. I’ve even bought a VHS tape off of eBay to secure a particularly tricky find — anything to get into the Halloween spirit.
Congratulations on completing the first midterm season of the fall semester! Now that Halloween is around the corner, it’s time to embrace this Halloweekend. Get out there and enjoy the spooky fall vibes with your (vaccinated) friends — and, of course, be safe.
There’s nothing wrong with having a sweet tooth... at least, that’s what I like to say.
To celebrate this year’s Halloween season, I attended the “Buried Alive: Haunted Walk-Through Attraction” as part of the Hoptoberfest festivities.
A lot of people have gardens back home, whether it be an elaborate collection of herbs in your backyard or a single, impossible-to-kill cactus sitting on a windowsill. For me, I had to leave a full balcony of succulents behind when I came to Hopkins. Sure, they were slightly overgrown, a little bit unruly and full of spiders, but they were mine, and I had watched all of them grow from seedlings.
After eating the same grilled chicken and rice for over a week, I knew it was time for a change of pace. So, in spite of two impending midterms, I dragged my roommate and a couple of friends into the AMR III Building B basement to make Gigi Hadid’s famous spicy penne alla vodka recipe (minus the vodka).
Last Sunday, I rounded up my brother and my boyfriend to check out the Abell Street Fair. The annual event took place just a short walk from my apartment on Guilford Avenue and within a couple blocks of Peabody Heights Brewery and The Book Thing of Baltimore. I was particularly excited for this year’s festivities, as the last time I attended the fair was back in 2019.
Take the weekend before exam season rolls around to get off campus and enjoy various music and food events with your friends! You won’t regret a fun and warm weekend spent out and about.
I’m a self-proclaimed coffee addict as well as a coffee connoisseur. At this point in my life, only the finest and most refined of coffee beans can achieve the Eunice Park stamp of approval. But that’s not all I look for; in addition to the precious, handsome, delicious, energizing (the list goes on, but I feel I should end this here so as not to come off as too weird) cup of joe, the café itself is just as important to me.
It’s the second week of in-person classes, and I’m sure at least some of you are looking to finally have a love life that doesn’t consist solely of movie nights on Zoom and swiping right. Whether you’re meeting someone for the first time or in a long-term relationship, spending quality time together is a pillar of a healthy relationship. This is where we come in...
Don’t procrastinate this week; get your final essays and projects out of the way early for once. This weekend is packed with some pretty lit events for you and your friends to enjoy before exams roll around.
I’m a total fan of Italian. If there’s fresh, oven-baked pizza, authentic pasta and an enticing drink menu of quality reds, I’m all yours. I was lucky to check out Sammy’s Trattoria with a friend this past weekend, and I’ll tell you right now that, for two girls treating themselves to some dinner, we had an absolute blast.
At the beginning of this semester, I purchased a bike off of Craigslist for $150.
Walk to Hampden to buy some crafts at “Baltimore’s Best Yarn Shop” or head all the way downtown to play some retro video games at MAP Technologies. You won’t regret a Saturday spent out and about.
