    New York City is Too Fast For its Own Good

    For some people, nothing could be more exciting than roaming the streets of a big city-the flashing lights, the skyscrapers, the vendors, the hustle, the bustle, and everything else about it that knocks your senses for a loop. As for me, I hate it. It is so unnecessary.

    The Duck: A Metaphor

    My brain was feeling overcrowded and needed to be refreshed. As medicine, I took a stroll to the riverside near my house hoping to clear my cluttered cranium. I was not in search of any answers or revelations, just the peacefulness of the water and the cooling refreshment of the breeze.

    This week in PC Idol… Round 2 of PC Idol took place in ’64 Hall last Thursday night, the theme of this week’s competition being ’90s music.

    Internships: A Necessary Evil?

    It’s a typical school night and I’m nestled under the covers, retainer jammed in over my freshly-brushed pearly whites. I’m on the brink of slumber, in those hazy few moments before drifting into blissful unconsciousness. Most people at this pre-REM cycle point are likely to be thinking of their outfit for the next day, or pondering the inexplicable things in life (do people with mullets know they have mullets?).

    Distraction Fest ’09:

    Recently, a sophomore friend of mine told me something rather upsetting. She felt intimidated by the library. Granted, I’m an aging senior who has had more time to become familiar with and utilize most of the campus. But if I have one foot in my collegiate grave, the other foot is certainly in the P.

    Defending the Honor of Providence College

    On the Friday before spring break, I should have been eagerly anticipating a week of vacation. Instead, I had a sick feeling in my stomach, having just finished reading Dr. Andrew Peach’s now infamous guest commentary (“Suffer Not the Children…Or the Pets.
