Princeton has a way of warping — maybe even morphing — my perspective of the world around me.
The ever-elusive “space” is a word spoken into a great expanse of hopes and fears and delusions: “safe spaces,” “inclusive spaces,” “open spaces,” “green spaces,” “learning spaces.” In this space, words float around abstractly, almost effortlessly, seemingly without the weight of any gravity; appearing to be a distant glimmer of an idea, a once bright and assuring light, which — without much definition — easily fades into obscurity.Coming to Princeton, it’s tempting to feel as though the rhetoric surrounding the term “space” stretches the word out, magnifies it, and tacks it onto well-designed brochures and anonymous invitations.

“System resetting, if there is an unauthorized entry, contact PSafe.”Once again, the ever-ecstatic voice of Why Are You Still Here?echoes over the speakers, congratulating me on having made it tomidnight at the J Street Library for the fourth time this week.Having been a proud resident of Wilson College for over a month now, there are a few facts about J Street Library of which I am certain: 1) it has extremely comfortable chairs 2) it is scarily quiet 3) someone is always asleep on the blue velvet couches, and 4) the entryway to J Street is where homework goes to die (this last observation being most evident on the daymy roommate told me, “I’m going to J Street,” only to return 4.7 hours later after having accomplished absolutely nothing- for more information contact Janette Lu '20)Let it be clear, when I say J Street, I'm either referring to the library, where homework has a potential to thrive, or the entryway, where most unassuming frosh congregate.Take Michele Montas '20, for example, who describes her experiences studying by J Street entryway, saying, “Literally, I can’t shut my mouth, because as I walk up that ramp to the door I always see somebody, and spend the next three hours telling them every detail of my life.”In contrast, whenVanessa Moore '20, who tends to study inside of the library, was asked why J Street was such an unproductive space, she exclaimed, “What?! I get so much done in J Street!” (To any of those who question her statement, let it be known that she is, in fact, a dedicated member of BSE program).It should also be noted that outside of J Street is the area known as Wilcox Commons.
