“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.

Not so fast: Surace runs onto the field in protest, having tried to call a timeout before the snap, as Harvard players celebrate around him. After review, Surace's argument was upheld — Harvard would need to take another shot at the end zone to actually get the win.

There is no asterisk, Tigers

“I’m here to tell you that Princeton’s 18–16 win over Harvard was completely legit, that the officials’ call was correct and appropriate under the NCAA’s rules, and that the bonfire on Cannon Green — and Princeton’s Ivy League Championship — was totally deserved.”

Princeton needs more flexible enrollment for writing seminars

“All in all, the prominent negativity surrounding Writing Seminars is a dire issue — one that considerably impacts first-year students and a student’s relationship with writing. While there are many things to consider, creating an add/drop policy or making writing seminars more flexible should not be impossible.”

Princeton needs to rethink its ban on social gatherings

We shouldn't let an uptick in cases distract us from the fact that we are well-protected, and we should not restrict students' activities in ways that would make, at most, a marginal impact on student health but a significant impact on their well-being.

I have COVID-19. To keep cases down, Princeton needs to mandate boosters.

As case counts rise, the University should move quickly in requiring booster vaccinations and hosting a series of more accessible clinics before winter break.
