    Les Petites Rues en France

    Weaving through the masses, I expertly dodge a man with a foo-foo dog and narrowly escape the grasps of two very in-love lovers. I do what I can to navigate the small streets of Paris, even if it means taking down a few small children along the way. Having spent nearly a month here, I still can’t help but pause at least seven times throughout each day and ask myself “Where the hell am I?” Everyday, like a small hairless cat (which is super aerodynamic), I dart across town, j-walking like it’s the new black and pretending I know where I’m going.

    In the Darkness

    It was 2:00 a.m. and they were all getting into bed, falling asleep, or already sleeping. I was exhausted too, but my mind was awake; rebelling. I slipped on my flip-flops and eased open the back door, holding my breath. I didn’t want to wake anyone or even let them know I was going.

    Learning the Meaning of “Advocate”

    They said that I returned from my first year of college as an activist. Some said it with pride, some said it with disdain, but most were just mildly bewildered. By the end of the summer I had grown extremely weary of hearing it, and even wearier of trying to convince them otherwise.

    PC Field Hockey Hits Bump in Road

    If “defense wins championships,” as the cliché saying implies, then the Providence College Field Hockey Team is well on its way to capturing a Big East title. This past week, the Friars took on fellow Big East member George-town and non-conference foe, North-eastern, and in both cases, the PC defense again proved to be extremely tough.

    Fan Anger Management: Tough Call

    The night is dark and quiet, cool unlike that pillowcase your cheek is resting upon. A street lamp flickers outside your window in a tangerine-tinted wink, then-mercifully, shuts off. The wind blows through the open screen, rustling against the curtains-if you even have any in your dorm room-and sends the innards of your latest Civ paper scattering to the corners of your room with a soft whisper.

    Ode to Coffee

    It is the anti-morning person’s elixir of life; It is there for you when you have 8:30 a.m. classes. It’s the procrastinator’s late night fuel; It is there for you when it’s 4:00 a.m. and you have yet to finish your paper. It is the perfect companion for discussing scintillating gossip with your best friend, it’s there for you when you find out what your roommate was really doing that night.
