    PICKS OF THE WEEK

      Book: Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling   Sure, you have tons of textbooks you should be diving into on your week off, but if you are going to read during spring break it better be from something a little more lighthearted than Contemporary Business Ethics or The Odyssey. Kaling achieved fame by playing a spacy and vain clinger on The Office and has recently starred in her own show on Fox, aptly named The Mindy Project. Her autobiography focuses on the many roles she has played, both on camera and off, and how she is the classic “awkward girl next door.” With chapter titles like “Don’t Peak in High School” and “Chubby for Life” you can see how this book will not be quite as content heavy as your academic readings. If you liked Tina Fey’s Bossypants or Chelsea Handler’s books then you will surely find Kaling to be the perfect spring break read.

    Putting the ‘rad’ in Post-grad: Last One Out Makes it Big

    You know them. You love them. One of their songs is stuck in your head right now. They are Last One Out, the pop/rock band from Providence, and they are no longer playing around-they are playing serious music. Last time I hung out with Last One Out, the band was in the midst of the Hard Rock Rising Contest, making it into the final round of this international competition. Now, a year later, the Providence College ’11 alums are establishing a name in the world of alternative rock.

    Wrapping Up the Oscars

    This year, the Academy Awards celebrated their 85th anniversary. It was certainly a milestone year for the awards ceremony. For example, two of the nominees for Best Actress-Quvenzhané Wallis (9) and Emmanuelle Riva (86)-were the youngest and oldest actresses to ever be nominated for the award. Also, to the surprise of absolutely no one, Daniel Day-Lewis won his third award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role in Lincoln, making him the first man to have ever done so. Many of the other winners followed the predictions of most filmgoers and movie critics. Anne Hathaway won the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her fifteen minutes of screentime in Les Miserables-fifteen minutes that arguably left most audiences in tears. Argo snatched up Best Picture, despite Ben Affleck’s snub for even being nominated for the Best Director Category.

    Long Road to Paradise

      I want to dive headfirst into the ocean, Swim free with the fish of the sea, And ride the current with devotion. I’ll swim down through the caverns Towards the light of the ancient lantern Hidden, hanging in the abyss on the coral tree.

    These Idle Hands

      Gale had been sitting for three weeks now. No wonder he’d become so twitchy. He knew he shouldn’t complain. He was lucky to be alive. That car crash could have killed him. But most days, the loss of his leg felt like only a step down from death. The fact that his injury had been so stubborn didn’t help matters any. He couldn’t start the fitting for a prosthetic until the doctors were sure the injury had fully healed. Almost there, they said. You’ll be back on your feet in no time, they said. Gale wasn’t sure he believed them anymore.
