DELANEY: A New Home for the Holidays

This time in the semester is always a delicate balance for me. First of all, Thanksgiving break is such a tease. You’re home just long enough to get reacquainted with your couch, TV channels and home cooking, and to begin to ask yourself things like, “Why did I ever leave[Read More…]

DELANEY: Recognizing Our Humanity

Over the course of my time at Georgetown, I’ve found that I have a difficult time sticking to certain personal goals that I set for myself. These are usually small things — new semester resolutions, so to speak — and I consistently break them. It’s like a cruel joke that[Read More…]

DELANEY: Halloween Season Unmasks Our Own Unique Traditions

It is October. Fall has arrived in earnest. The telltale signs are everywhere: the collective female population of Georgetown received the usual autumn memo that it is once again boots-and-sweater season, my coffee is now spiked with pumpkin (as is my Blue Moon) and I am tempted to send bouquets[Read More…]

DELANEY: Where Everyone Knows Your Name

My friend recently likened life on a college campus to living inside the computer game “The Sims.”Obviously, this comparison is not perfect because of minor details like our human freedom, or, more heartbreakingly, the fact that typing “rosebud” onto my bank statement will not make more money magically appear in my[Read More…]

Delaney: A Welcome Rulebook for Life

I am fairly certain that there has been discussion about the deterioration of society for as long as mankind has been able to sit around a fire and communicate. The next generation has been the older generation’s scapegoat for thousands of years: The young and rebellious are the ones to[Read More…]

Delaney: Wins and Losses in a Life With Facebook

I think I take for granted how much technology defines my college experience. The most glaring example of this is Facebook. Honestly, how did anything get done before Facebook? Broadcasting events, garnering support, marketing initiatives, party planning — it all takes place on Facebook. When my friends and I are[Read More…]

Delaney: When Portable Music Meant Something More

I am compact disc kid. I’ve long heard my parents’ generation regale us children about the music they grew up with. My baby-boomer parents navigated their way through vinyl, LPs, 8-track  tapes and mixtapes. “Here Comes the Sun” was released on “Abbey Road” while my dad was stationed at the[Read More…]

This Thanksgiving, Everything’s Gravy

When it comes to Thanksgiving break I suffer from delusions of grandeur. I am now a junior here at Georgetown. And as cringe-worthy as that statement is for me (i.e., I am old, the real world is impending and other similar existential dilemmas), it does carry with it an innate[Read More…]

Seeking a Standard of Success

Effective methods of measuring success are elusive. How does one seek to define something so impervious to quantification? The lines between Success and Happiness blur easily – susceptible to prejudices, personal experiences and presumptions. Success boasts varying degrees and extents – it’s like a vast litmus paper for the human[Read More…]

Training to Be a Team Player

I know this much is true: I belong on the sidelines. Most of my childhood (read: life) has been marked by failed forays into the world of athletics. In gymnastics class, at age four, my instructor was so frustrated by my inability to execute a cartwheel that she invented a[Read More…]
