Field Notes: Homecoming Edition

Written by

Roar, Lion, Roar!

This past weekend was unreal. Columbia won the big game, parents and students alike were in good spirits, and the celebration served as a well-needed distraction from impending midterms. Check out what Bwog was up to! 

Bwog has school spirit:

  • Went to Homecoming and got annoyed at all the drunk obnoxious people, because normally I’m the drunk obnoxious person and they were stealing my thunder.
  • Got dinner with my parents after Homecoming and almost fell asleep at the restaurant.
  • Got drunk really early into Homecoming, ended up falling asleep to Hercules in my bed at 1:30 in the afternoon.
  • Had a lovely boozy brunch in my suite the morning of Homecoming feat. frosé and pumpkin spice pancakes.
  • Lost my voice at the game.
  • Got blackout drunk on Friday because a boy flaked on me. Was subsequently too hungover on Saturday to enjoy Homecoming.
  • Was asked to go clubbing downtown by 45 year old men, back to reminisce for Homecoming.
  • Missed the last 15 minutes of the Homecoming game because I was being a responsible travel manager.

The trials and tribulations of Columbia students:

  • Wrote a 5 page take-home midterm in an hour! It’s due in a week but I just felt inspired.
  • Fell over unto my desk, with my feet hitting the wall, knocking three books off my neighbor’s shelf and giving myself a black eye.
  • Spilled water on my MacBook, just in time for midterms this week.
  • Got very inspired (possibly too inspired) by the Jhumpa Lahiri event, and wrote a short story in Russian.
  • Had fun at dwb but then subsequently spent 2 hours in Butler’s Ref room wasted, trying to study.
  • Wrote 2600 words in 3 hours and haven’t stopped bragging about it.
  • Skipped all of my responsibilities on Sunday to work on other responsibilities.
  • Got 10 hours of sleep on Saturday night instead of doing literally any studying for my midterm on Monday morning.
  • Cried for 20 mins while drunk after someone took away a Krispy Kreme donut.
  • Waited for hours to get an X-ray of my face that they ended up fucking up. Got fired from my babysitting job because the ex-ray place made me a couple minutes late even though I showed up despite having a concussion.
  • Listened to new music until my list of unheard podcasts gave me too much anxiety.
  • Saw my male floormate in the literal nude as I passed by because his door was open.

Bwog in the city: 

  • Walked the Brooklyn Bridge during sunset with my best friend from home who is visiting.
  • Spent way too much money on Uber/Lyft.
  • Had my genitals grabbed by a drag queen in broad daylight on W14th.
  • Almost got into a fight with some rude man at Mel’s but I was with an entire fraternity so he backed off.
  • Went to a jazz club with my friend and had to fight to stay awake since last week was so draining.
  • Got stopped on the street in front of the Flatiron Building to take photos for someone’s online column on Cosmo Japan.
  • Partied with artsy NYU kids, dressed as weird as possible to fit in.
  • Went to my first concert with a boy! Not my first concert ever, just my first time going with a boy.
  • Slept on the street in the rain to get SNL tickets.
  • Gave a blowjob in the shower of a dorm at a university I don’t even go to.
