Meet Hamilton (left) and Rufus (right)!!! They have over 90 thousand followers on Instagram.

This weekend was one for the books, friends. Whether you wound up covered in glitter, sweat your ass off at Sig Chi, or just stayed in to avoid the cold, it seems Bwog has covered all the bases. Check out this weekend’s field notes.

Beauty is pain:

  • Bruised the bottom of my feet from jumping down full flights of stairs in EC.
  • Bled for the Band.
  • Played black ops laser tag and killed more people than anyone else on my team. Lost my voice from screaming and haven’t gotten it back.
  • Was running late for my 8:40, accidentally ran into the doorframe in the bathroom, popped my nose out of joint and it started bleeding everywhere. Bathroom looks like a crime scene, but I was only five minutes late! (Read: how the fuck does one “pop” their nose out of its “joint”)
  • Woke up Saturday morning with blood all over my sheets. Looked in the mirror only to see the biggest, grossest, bloodiest, nastiest bruise/scrape/cut completely covering my left ass cheek. I blacked out and have NO idea what happened.
  • Almost puked in the street on the corner of 19th and Fifth Ave because I was so hungover.
  • Went to Times Square before noon. Twice.

Did anything not painful happen?

(Adorable) Bwogger Mia declared this spring!

For the past few weeks, you’ve probably seen lots of Facebook posts from your sophomore friends with their cute little “I declared!” pins. (If they’re Barnard, at least. CC/SEAS/GS kids don’t get pins. I know, I know, I’m sad too.) You’ve also probably felt lots of different feelings about these posts… anything from “that’s my major, dammit” or “stop pretending like you have your life together, bitch. I saw you crying in 209 last night.” Regardless, here’s a helpful little guide to getting your life together. At least when it comes to declaring a major. You’re on your own for the rest of it, pal. 

Here at Columbia, we love nothing more than to whine and moan about some of the most trivial things. Remember that time where there was an uproar about the placement of a statue on campus, complete with a petition, multiple discussions in the student councils, and even a survey over it? Damn, we just love complaining about some fairly irrelevant shit.

Keep reading for more titillating tips.

Same

According to the registrar’s office, today is Midterm Day, meaning we’ve officially made it halfway through our semester. This comes as surprising news for some, but it feels like about fucking time for others. The chandelier in Ref is definitely one of these others, as it, like the rest of us, appears to be quite burnt out. With only six shining bulbs left, it too seems like it needs a spring break. Hang in there babe; we hope to be swinging from one of you soon ♥.

We are so lucky to have a student council who works so hard.

CCSC still found ways to get riled up despite the prospect of a short meeting right before Spring Break. Nadra Rahman reports from the Satow Room, in admiration of their energy.

Though last night’s Columbia College Student Council (CCSC) meeting had only one major item—to approve candidates for the Columbia Elections Board (CEB)—it certainly was not short. Members grappled with the risk and consequences of bias in the four applicants.

Who’s Biased? Why Bias? The Election Board Debate
In a shift from previous years, the four CEB candidates were voted on by the different student councils, with each council receiving the anonymized interview responses of the applicants alongside the interview committee’s recommendation (or lack thereof). This time, one candidate was GS and three were CC; the interview committee ratings ranged from “strong recommendation” to “recommendation with reservations.” When asked how many candidates should be approved, President Nicole Allicock replied that CEB was so understaffed that appointments should be maximized, not minimized.

Where does the controversy begin though

Make Bwog Great Again. lmao jk we’ve always been great.

One! More! Week! One more week until you’re off to Cabo or Amsterdam or New Jersey. You can do it. Just a few more midterms to go. Godspeed, my friend.

Happening in the nation: President Trump is once again off his knocker. This weekend, he tweeted an unfounded accusation at President Obama—that he “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the 2016 election cycle.

Happening in NYC: Over the weekend, hundreds gathered outside Trump Tower for a “March 4 Trump” in support of the President. Wow, what a creative and nuanced pun.

Happening on campus: Tonight from 5 to 7 pm the Columbia Mental Health Task Force will be in the Jerome Green Annex (located adjacent to Wien) to talk about University policy changes regarding how Columbia deals with mental health. Any and all are welcome to come, and dinner will be served.

Overheard: “…I can’t tell if this is pizza sauce or blood.”

We are all Max.
