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.
Winter break ended this past weekend, forcing us to say goodbye to our families and hometowns. It was time to go back to school. Yet for me, I found myself saying to my parents that I’m excited to go home.
Welcome back, Blue Jays! Congratulations on finishing your first week of classes! It’s been a while since we were all together in Baltimore — take this weekend to reconnect with the city at these great events.
Happy finals season! If you’re like me, you’ve probably been spending most of your day studying or working on papers. For me, where I work really matters. I try to work in my room as little as possible, simply because I get tired and distracted. As a senior, I think I know all the best study spots by now.
It’s my first holiday season away from home, and I had been feeling homesick for the Christmas Village. Back in Philadelphia, my family and I would sleigh off to Love Park in Center City every year to explore the shops, food and activities of the German-inspired Christmas Village. Despite the finals, papers and long car rides impeding my way before break, the Baltimore Christmas Village at the Inner Harbor gave me the taste of home that I was missing.
You’ve finally made it to the end, Blue Jays! Congratulations on another semester well done. Before you hunker down for finals, check out some of these exciting holiday events. Whether you need to do some gift shopping or bar crawling, there’s plenty to explore.
When my friends and I were surveying the Mount Vernon area for potential brunch spots, we happened upon Café Filí. Just a quick JHMI ride to Mount Vernon and a brisk five-minute walk to the restaurant, Café Filí is a convenient and valuable location that will satisfy your cravings for Mediterranean food.
When it comes to coffee, I will take any opportunity to try new flavors. It’s not even the caffeine I care about, I just love the taste. Usually, my go-to order will be an iced coffee with oat milk and some brown sugar from Brody cafe (only $1.75 if you bring your own mug!). I promised myself that I would make more coffee at home, but during finals season I have been struggling to find the time. In addition, the act of getting coffee just brings a bit of joy into my day.
I hope you had a restful and relaxing Thanksgiving break, Blue Jays! While we might be in the home stretch of the semester, we’re also luckily in the holiday season. Check out one of the many delightful holiday events happening as we ring in December.
Read any major listicle about the top “food cities” in the U.S. and you will seldom find Baltimore in the conversation, let alone even in the top 25. As a somewhat biased party who has tried, loved and written about a whole bunch of restaurants in Baltimore, I’m frustrated by this exclusion.
We’ve all seen photos on Pinterest and Instagram and are probably guilty of the trend ourselves. Houseplants, both living and faux, have taken over our window sills and social media feeds — and for good reason. Studies suggest indoor plants can have positive effects on mental health and productivity. Plus the vibes are undeniably good. Who wouldn’t want to live in a jungle or at least bring a little life to a dark, generic dorm room?
Happy Thanksgiving break, Blue Jays! You’re so close to finishing your semester! I hope you have some exciting plans for the break, but if you’re sticking around for this weekend, I’ve got some great events for you.
Growing up, I was spoiled by my grandma’s homemade Chinese cuisine, a concoction of traditional Chinese ingredients and her own ingenious tweaks. I am convinced that her magic cuisines have satiated the microbiome of my stomach so much that I will forever crave for and associate that savory with family and happiness.
Korean Barbecue (KBBQ) emerged as a popular dining option in the past decade, especially in cities with high concentrations of Korean Americans and Korean immigrants. Restaurants provide raw meat — typically sliced thin — for you to cook yourself on a grill inserted in the table.
While it certainly hasn’t felt like it lately, fall in Baltimore is ramping up as we quickly approach the holiday season! Check out these exciting events before you leave for Thanksgiving break.
If you haven’t been living in a labyrinth, you probably know that Taylor Swift recently announced her Eras Tour, with fans eagerly anticipating her return to the stage after four new albums and two re-recorded studio albums. Our love of Swift is nothing new, as both of us are longtime fans. While we, along with every other fan, are vying for the chance to live out our wildest dreams, we know that tour tickets will likely be untouchable.
In my time as the Leisure Editor, I have had so much fun continuously discovering Baltimore through the eyes of my writers and my own new experiences. I relish the opportunity to celebrate Baltimore in any way that I can because it is such a wonderful city.
Can you believe it’s November already, Blue Jays? Congrats on getting over halfway through the semester! I hope you had an excellent Halloween, and I hope you’re ready to spend these last few weeks of fall having lots of fun at these events!
