    Whalebones and Silk Gloves

    Both staircases led to one place. Lady Morgan was tardy. Her mind was preoccupied with the many factors of her appearance and in reacting to the seemingly impossible notion that she could have ever decorated herself to absolute perfection, let panic set in about which of the staircases she would take.

    Not the type you would imagine a young team experiencing as they play at Villanova’s Pavilion where they have not won in 14 years.

    Friars Take UNH to OT, but Fall after Thompson’s Goal

    Work Experience, Skills, Wall Posts

    Some people put more thought into their Facebook statuses than others. We are all friends with at least a few people who post spontaneous updates every 20 minutes, whether they be a colloquial “about to shower hmu” or an insightful “THE JETS SUCK.” These are the types of statuses that some people choose to flood our newsfeeds with (especially immediately following big football games), but my question is why? First of all, someone who posts hourly on Facebook can only hope to win a maximum of three “likes” per status, especially with thoughtless contributions like “mad tired” and “I hate reading.” But the more important reason as to why unintelligent, frequent Facebook posts are a bad idea is connected to something most of us here at PC have already realized: Facebook has ceased to be simply a Web site used to communicate with friends — it has become a r

    Keeping The Politics Out of Tucson: Part 1

    The nation was rightfully shocked to learn of the recent shooting spree in Tucson, Arizona. A congresswoman, a judge, and a child were among the innocent victims of a senseless crime. The blood had barely been cleaned from the streets of Tucson when the political pundits began to opine about the real culprit to blame. In his typical, left wing, bombastic fashion, Keith Olbermann appeared eager to point his finger squarely in the direction of Tea Party anger, and he was joined by a chorus of eager accusers.

    Friends Versus Acquaintances:Too “Friendly” At PC

    Americans generally tend to compartmentalize their friendships, having their “friends from class,” “friends from home,” “gym friends,” “friends with benefits,” and so on. I definitely realized this over winter break, after nearly half-a-dozen students from PC who spent the majority of their spare time with me over the course of the semester barely managed to text me. Interestingly enough, after talking with quite a few people, I was not the only one who experienced this.

    Beyond The Byline: Too Quick To Judge Cowl Writers

    We all know how reading the newspaper works. You usually take a glance at the front page, read the articles that interest you (if any), and then flip to your favorite section. You take a glance at the headlines and photographs, skimming the articles until they disinterest you, and then search for that writer that everyone’s been talking about, positively or negatively, so you can draw your own conclusions about their writing.

    This Week: Awkward Housing

    Dear Tiffany and Earl,

    I just came back from studying abroad last semester, and have found myself in an awful situation. All of my friends have gone abroad, and I was placed in random housing by Res Life. They threw me in a room with someone I got into a fight with freshman year outside of Louie’s. Not only am I now stuck with no friends this semester, but I have to deal with the awkwardness of being immediate roommates with someone I just don’t like. What should I do?

    Let’s Rant

    In an effort to be more positive in a public forum: I’ve revamped. It’s important to note that in the midst of all of the appalling cinematography and “musical prodigies” littering the Arts and Entertainment sphere, there are shining beams of hope whose talents serve to forage through the devolution of pop culture that the aforementioned individuals have inflicted on innocent civilians, and shed light on what true innovation is. In my most humble opinion, Nicki Minaj is one of those beams.
