Walking into the Center for Jewish Life, my stomach was doing somersaults. Although my dad is Jewish, he does not practice. This was my first time at a Jewish service. Raised as a Roman Catholic, I was nervous that my Catholic tendencies would make me a clear outsider.
It doesn’t take much to form a habit. Many people once believed that only 21 days of repeating a certain behavior will turn it into a habit, while according to researchers, every habit starts with a psychological pattern called the “habit loop,” a three-step process that first engages the decision-making part of your brain. Then, after some repetition, the behavior becomes second nature. Nevertheless, whether we like it or not — and whether they are bad or good — we are particularly talented at forming habits. In the long run, those habits are incredibly important for coping with changes, providing structure in a busy life, and motivating us simply to get out of bed every morning. However, habits can also be incredibly important in hurting us if we have the wrong ones.
Just over a month ago, then-Judge and now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh testified in front of a Senate committee. At one point in his testimony, the Supreme Court nominee was asked yet another question about his drinking habits that he yet again failed to clearly answer. However, although most of his defenses were problematic, including his “choir boy” image and virgin claim, his Yale argument holds major implications for us as students at Princeton, and other Ivy League students. Kavanaugh defended himself by saying the following:
Every time the Tigertones perform, our highest priority is to create a positive atmosphere through an engaging and energetic performance that is welcoming to every member of our audience. For years, our group has aimed to sing “Kiss the Girl” from the Little Mermaid in that same spirit, bringing a lighthearted, youthful energy to our performance of the song. As an opinion column in The Daily Princetonian on Monday pointed out, we have failed to achieve that end while keeping all members of our audience comfortable.
Norwegian player Magnus Carlsen convincingly defended his world chess champion title Wednesday by defeating U.S. challenger Fabiano Caruana 3–0 in their tiebreak match.
My former roommates refer to the December of my freshman year as the “Dark Ages of 2016.” My then-boyfriend and I had just broken up. I spent hours crying every day, and it was a struggle to leave my room. I didn’t eat much. I slept a lot. I listened to sad music on Spotify. The only time I left my room was to shower. It wasn’t a happy time.
Arthur C. Brooks, the 10-year president of the American Enterprise Institute, one of the world’s leading conservative think-tanks, is a frequent lecturer. On campus last spring, he talked about “The Art of Happiness.” Students, faculty, and members of the local community filled twice as many seats as expected. A recording can be found online, but sitting feet away from him was a truly empowering experience. Brooks exudes confidence in the state of America and is able to relate his personal stories to a vast population smoothly.

A couple weeks ago, on Nov. 11, point guard Kemba Walker of the Charlotte Hornets made headlines around the NBA by scoring 60 points against the Philadelphia 76ers in a three-point overtime loss. Two days later, he scored 43 points against the Boston Celtics, achieving the rare feat of scoring over 100 points in back-to-back games. After these performances, ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith looked into the camera and said emphatically “Kemba Walker has arrived.”
United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is pushing forward Title IX reform that would strip victims of sexual abuse of some of their current rights. The newly proposed reforms reduce the liability of colleges in reporting sexual abuse on campuses by removing their obligation to act on issues of sexual abuse when they occur off campus.
At this point, I feel as if the University has gone overboard with the amount of stress it puts on students. The question is no longer “Are you stressed?”; the question is now “How stressed are you?” It is no longer a matter of if you’re stressed, but to what extent you are and what the cause of your stress is. While life isn’t all candy and roses and some form of stress will always be present in our lives, I think we can have some sort of happy medium: appropriate stress, but not to the point of sacrificing mental health.
