Even the clouds are sweaty.
Let me set the stage for you: I’m at a football game. It’s late October. Three days before Halloween, in fact. Around this time, I would normally expect to be bundled up in a coat and scarf, a knitted hat keeping my head cozy as I hold onto a warm cup of coffee for dear life.
But instead, I’m sitting here in direct sunlight and 70-degree temperatures, sweating my ass off.
What gives, Columbia? The past few weeks have been a dangerous game of temperature roulette, as we’ve switched between sweltering humidity and a state tantalizingly close to sweater weather without so much of a second thought. It’s as though this campus is an experimental bubble, and some awful deity is flipping a switch from hot to slightly less hot just to make it even harder for us to survive midterms season (after all, how are we supposed to be motivated to go inside and study when it feels like beach weather outside?). It was even hot when we went to Dartmouth last weekend. DARTMOUTH. That place is supposed to be a TUNDRA.
At this point, we’re prepared for no snow in December, and we’ve accepted heat waves in March. But this refusal to just properly let fall be fall is the last straw. For gods sake, weather, we have so many cute sweaters and scarves! Let us wear them!

Me thinking about all the cool arts events this week.
New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.

Purchase at your own risk…
So, you need a broom, or a new pair of headphones, or some other menial item that seemed inconsequential until you attempted to live life without it. To find it, it’s inevitable that you’ll turn to one place: Duane Reade. Those brightly lit aisles have every menial item you could possibly need, but they also have some of the most blatantly cheap pieces of manufacturing you will ever see. In order to help you figure out when you can shop at Duane Reade and when you should opt for a more expensive alternative, Bwog has compiled a helpful power ranking.
