“What do you identify yourself as?”
“Just a cool place to come in, have some great food, look around and see some cool stuff.”
Writing about mental health is a touchy subject for me.
Baltimore certainly recognizes the holiday season. Buses say “Happy Holidays,” the Inner Harbor has set up the Christmas Village and Homewood Campus is preparing for the Lighting of the Quads, which will take place on Dec. 10.
Thanksgiving Break was a much-needed time to avoid thinking about school. And yet, just a few days into it, alum Michael Bloomberg made an announcement that immediately drew my attention back to Hopkins. Bloomberg explained in a Nov. 18 New York Times op-ed that he was giving $1.8 billion to Hopkins to be used for financial aid.
It was a Tuesday, and I was hungry.
I hate that these words need to be said.
It’s spooky season, and no, I’m not referring to midterms that are just around the corner.
October began last week, and spooky season is here. Along with the usual pre-Halloween traditions — haunted houses, scary movies, pumpkin spice (that’s all I want from fall, really) — a new event arrived to the city this year.

Baltimore is no longer officially known as “The City That Reads,” but this weekend, it may as well revert to its old slogan.

Would any of us particularly care about Baltimore were we not Hopkins students? Despite recent promotion as a fun, exciting destination, our city has yet to appeal to the masses like Los Angeles or New York. And if you had previously visited Baltimore, it probably wasn’t to our neighborhood. For those who are tourists, the main draw of Baltimore is the Inner Harbor.
You’ve no doubt noticed the interconnected buildings behind the Beach, one older and shorter, the other newer and sleek. They’re empty now but they won’t be for long. These are MSE and Brody. If you’re a typical Hopkins student, they’ll become your second home.
Baltimore has nothing to offer me.
For the majority of those of you who are reading this, the upcoming weekend doesn’t stand out in any particular way beyond being the precursor to the last week of classes.
According to all usual conventions, it’s spring now.

On Tuesday, April 2 “An Evening of Yiddish Shorts” was held at the Smokler Center for Jewish Studies, also known as Hillel. The evening was hosted by Beatrice Lang, lecturer of Yiddish Language through the Department of German and Romance Languages and Literatures and the Jewish Studies Program.
