For you who suffer in the deep bowels of Butler, the nooks and the crannies on campus, slouching your back, straining your neck over your books or computer screen, you who epitomize the tragic hero… tonight is your opportunity to let out your stress, to sound out the banes of your existence, to regurgitate your agony and share it with your peers.
Today is the last Sunday of the fall semester–and tonight is the night of the Primal Scream. A long-established tradition, Primal Scream can be dated back to 1872, when nobody had to worry about their phones dying or not getting enough likes on social media. Yes, life has grown exponentially hard, so scream it like you’re living it.

We’re ready to drown in this melted snow
On Friday night, it snowed. We know it snowed – we nearly tripped and fell on our way home from EC. We’re pretty sure we didn’t imagine that, and we’re also pretty sure we didn’t imagine how little we wanted to get out of bed the next morning.
But despite the freezing temperatures of earlier this weekend, today, it’s a balmy fifty-five degrees. We saw guys jogging in shorts, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see Low Beach sunbathers, had it not been for the dreary precipitation. The snow is melting, just like our resolve to put any effort into our academic endeavors this semester.
Yeah, we know that the weather has been pretty unpredictable in recent semesters. Climate change is real, despite the arguments our relatives relish in staging over the holidays. But still – we rely on the end of fall semester to give us a reason to stay in Butler for forty-eight hours, and this mugginess, this melting of snow, this warmth … it’s unacceptable.
How the fuck are we supposed to concentrate on our final papers when the outside world can’t even decide which season it’s in?

Even the most lavish banquet has to come to an end. Today at 7 p.m. Lerner 505, we will be having our last Bwog meeting of the semester. If you feel like Bwog has made your semester better with other people’s juicy news or downright shittier with your juicy news, and that, after 12 hours of your derriere plastered on a chair in Butler, you are able to muster up a bit of energy, you should come to the meeting tonight, to get some juicy grapes, banana bread, and to spill some hot tea. Yet, if by any chance you don’t read Bwog, then remember this: Bwog reads you.

We’re back with another senior wisdom – this time, from everyone’s favorite Spec op-ed writer, Daniella Greenbaum. Find out where she’s been, where she’s going, and what advice she has.
Name, School, Major, Hometown: Daniella Greenbaum, AKA “DG”, Barnard, English Lit, hometown, if you can call it that, is Manhattan
Claim to fame: Former Aryeh President. Spec Columnist. Also, at midnight on my 21st birthday, I was in Butler with a smirnoff ice, a slice of cake, and a paper that badly needed to be written. I’m absolutely terrified of dogs.
Where are you going? I’m starting as Commentary Magazine’s assistant editor in February! Subscribe!
What are 3 things you learned at Columbia and would like to share with the Class of 2020?
1. There is a cafe in the Hillel building on 115th. They sell Paninis. These Paninis will change your life. Go there. Daily.
2. True friends will stick with you when campus hates on you because they find something you wrote offensive. Go out of your way to write something that might be perceived as offensive so you can see who your true pals are. I’m kidding. But in all seriousness, the friends you make in college will be with you for the rest of your life. Treasure them.
More about Daniella after the jump!

All you need is Vogue
Bwogline: What are you doing while reading Bwog? Researchers found out that multitasking “produces shallower thinking, reduces creativity, increases errors and lowers our ability to block irrelevant information.” (BBC)
Study Tip: Turn off your phone, leave the Columbia buy/sell memes Facebook group. You have just doubled your study time.
Music: There is nothing more exciting than quietly jamming out to music in the Stacks, pulling your head out of the books and seeing your fellow Columbian suffer. While reading week might be barren and dry, you can spice it up with FKA twigs’ ethereal, eargasmic voice. Or this amazing cover by #1 Dads with Tom Snowdon.
Procrastination: Take a luxurious shower. You know you haven’t for too long.
Overheard: “I am tired by choice.”
