10 More Wonderful Aspects About Wellesley

Happy April everyone! Today concludes Wellesley’s first week of online classes/remote learning. I’d say it was a success, and I’m slowly getting back into the swing of the semester. I can’t even begin to say how much I miss my friends, professors, and campus, but I’ll take Zoom classes over nothing any day.  Anyway, I’m back again this week, to…

work from home

I’m back after about three weeks. I have been spending the last few weeks moving out of Wellesley, moving back home and just settling myself in. All of this is still quite unbelievable, but I am making it day by day. I wanted to give you an update on what’s been going on with me. I’ve been home in New…

Podcasts & Pickleball

Long runs lend themselves to podcasts. With crew season suddenly over, my weekly running mileage has jumped from 0 to almost 30. Summer running, as I’ve come to think of my seasonal affair with the sport, has begun early, and I find myself actually looking forward to the next day’s run. It’s fun to be in a position physically where…

Welcome 2024!

Hello hello! I wanted to talk about one thing specifically for my post today: WELLESLEY CLASS OF 2024!!!! You look amazing from here, and we can’t wait to meet you. Although spring open campus is canceled this year, I wanted to share 20 wonderful things to get our prospies (aka you, admitted student, reading this!) excited for Wellesley. I’ll share…

Does It Spark Joy?

I have now been home (and inside!!) for over a week which means that I have begun procrastinating in new and exciting ways. I have rewatched episodes of The Office on Netflix, briefly took up cross stitching, and started reading Pride and Prejudice. Now I am Marie Kondoing (yes, I just made that a verb!). Perhaps you haven’t heard of…

A Quiet Week at Home

I came home on Monday afternoon. Given the situation, I’m about as lucky as I could get—since I live only 20 minutes from campus, I didn’t have to change flights or worry about overweight luggage. My mom and I piled everything into her car and we drove home. Over and done in an hour.  Time passes more slowly at home,…

Boxing It All Up

Last Wednesday, I sat in the quad playing a card game with my friend Anna. One week later, I write to you from my bed in California. What a week it has been. To be entirely honest, this week was the longest of my life. There were many tears and hard goodbyes, but I was also reminded over and over…

Over Too Soon

What a year this week has been. On Monday, the crew training trip to South Carolina was cancelled, and my teammates and I were hugely disappointed. We thought that was bad. Cancelling a bus trip felt a bit excessive, but we were nonetheless looking forward to a week of rowing on campus and on the Charles. The weather here has…

The One with First Year Formal

First Year formal is an annual event put on by the freshman class council as the first formal dance for first years to attend. There were several other events throughout the year, mainly a fun dance during Orientation, however First Year formal gives everyone a chance to dress up (if they want to), have a good time, and take some…

Chem Midterm and a Quick Jaunt to Vermont

It is officially midterms season folks. Like many of my peers, I had an incredibly busy week with assignments due in almost all of my classes. I’ve been practicing lots of self-care by enjoying the warm weather we’ve been having and reading outside. It has been exhausting at times but overall a great week. I had my first chem midterm…
