Living, when surviving

“While the darkest times of this pandemic existence — the strictest isolation, the initial grave worry over getting sick or worse, and so on — have required existing in survival mode, I’ve also managed to find moments to be alive since then.”

The transformation of Adele: “30” Review

All in all, fans had sky-high expectations for “30,” and Adele delivered; she appeased listeners with more classic-sounding tracks while also successfully stepping out of the typical powerful ballad that characterized her past hits. However, because she refused to entirely keep within her original formula, I don’t expect “30” to be as much of a hit as “21” or “25.”

eXpressions Dance Company’s ‘Notorious’ showcases multiple dimensions of artistry

The modern and contemporary-focused company not only experimented with musical textures but also explored the poetic elements of dance, such as the intentional repetition of movement and the contrast of continuity with dynamism.

Lovejoy returns with EP “Pebble Brain”

“Lovejoy’s newest EP, ‘Pebble Brain,’ follows the same high-energy pop-punk-rock formula that carried ‘Are You Alright?’ to Spotify’s ‘Viral Hits’ playlist. Overall, I’m impressed with it, especially considering that Soot isn’t a professional vocalist. The lyrics might be confusing to many, but their vagueness is their strength: depending on the listener’s interpretation, they can have implications on the personal, political, or societal level.”

Working towards an inclusive ‘Prince’ and an accessible Princeton

On this International Day of People with Disabilities, I want to commend both the ‘Prince’ and Princeton for becoming better places for disabled students throughout my four years here. I look forward to seeing Princeton continue to improve access and inclusion, and I know the ‘Prince’ will be waiting to document these changes.

We tried hot cocoa from 6 places in Princeton, so you don't have to

I sampled hot cocoa from six establishments in town: Small World Coffee, Halo Pub, The Bent Spoon, Starbucks, PJ’s Pancake House, and Milk & Cookies. I was shocked to find so many places serving this chocolaty treat. Every time I thought I had tried it all, I found more shops to explore! Now that winter is right around the corner, I recommend you all go out and get a steamy cup of cocoa to warm up.

“Optimist” by FINNEAS: Album in Review and Analysis

FINNEAS is back, to the joy of millions of fans (including me) with his debut album “Optimist.”  For many, expectations for the album were high: FINNEAS has had a hand in making one of the most iconic voices of our generation, Billie Eilish, and his solo songwriting is clearly superb. He’s clearly delivered on those expectations.
