Field Notes: Love Is For The Weak Edition

Written by

Let’s talk about love!

I don’t know why, but this weekend was a love-filled drama for Bwog Staffers. Maybe it stemmed from the post-Valentine’s Day hype/blues, but nonetheless, Bwog Staffers experienced love, along with other things, in its totality. Anyways, here is a collection of this weekend’s stories, which you can be apart of as well! Send your own stories and weekend adventures to and we will add it to this list or put it on next week’s post!

Bwog in the City:

  • Went to Brooklyn to play Catan and eat vegetarian tacos.
  • Went upstate to hang out with my best friends. Played hide and go seek for an hour in her dorm.
  • Had enjoyable and childish fun that made this weekend feel like a dream! Was snapped back into reality when a random guy with a long red beard got a little too close to me on the bus.
  • Interpreted a stranger’s dream at Hungarian.
  • Met up with a friend from high school in Chicago, smoked in Grant Park, and laughed at the bean statue thing for forty minutes.
  • Went to Boston to visit my best friend!!!!
  • Ate two whole edibles at a concert. Felt like the entire world was inside out.
  • Went to three different graveyards.
  • Went to Chinatown to celebrate Lunar New Year with friends over Chinese food and bubble tea.
  • Ubered from 113th to 116th to avoid walking in the snow.
  • Saw Rico Nasty perform.
  • Went to a gay bar for the first time!
  • Went to Lush <3

Bwog on Campus:

  • Wrote a 10 page paper in a weekend.
  • Did homework over Skype with a boy for over 5 hours and was actually productive.
  • Studied hours upon end for a map quiz only to find out that none of the questions were actually based on locating things.
  • Paid off my work study balance!
  • Was accepted to the LLC so I pretty much have a guaranteed single next year!
  • Slept through a class where I was one of twenty students…yikes.
  • Watched an Amazon prime movie about a Columbia grad “adrift in New York” who fucks his dad’s mistress. It’s called “The Only Living Boy in New York” and I don’t recommend unless you have 90 minutes to waste gagging/laughing.
  • Wore heels for over 12 hours.
  • Walked back to my dorm barefoot but insisted on putting on my heels so the security guards wouldn’t know I was drunk.
  • Went to 4 basketball games in two days and then played in the 24 Hour Musical.
  • Nearly lost my wallet (with the last Bwog amex inside!!) on Friday night – luckily found it a few minutes later, by the Hamilton statue. (The treasury secretary watching over my/Bwog’s money seems kinda poetic.)
  • Was pelted by snow on the walk from my dorm room to a pregame. Showed up to said pregame with makeup running down my face.
  • Was 2 seconds away from taking some rich international student’s Canada Goose after a party, when I couldn’t find my own jacket and refused to walk home in the cold.
  • Wore light up sneakers to my first sorority semi formal.
  • Stayed in bed all Saturday watching Friends and baking.
  • Went to 3 parties in 1 night, including one Carman party to which we arrived after it was over.

Bwog and Love:

  • Realized this Ph.D. candidate I hooked up with last year didn’t get his Ph.D. yet, and hooked up with him.
  • Got dumped, but also got out of a toxic relationship.
  • Woke up to a text from a guy telling me I’d left my underwear in his room.
  • Ditched a guy mid hookup to go hang out with his RA instead.
  • Tried to repress my romantic feelings for my best friend (who is dating someone). Failed to keep my distance and get over him.
  • Went on a date with an insanely smart and attractive first year at Columbia law, he made us boozy Oreo milkshakes – I spent the night and scored a date for next weekend.
  • Fell in love on a boat.
  • Discovered my crush is 100% unrequited.
  • Texted a 24 year old lawyer I ghosted in November and he was actually really happy to hear from me and I’m seeing him either Tuesday or Saturday depending on how his work is this week.
  • Left my date to watch Black Panther with a friend.
  • This person i’ve been into for a minute told me to hit them up.
  • Went on two dates with two different girls in the space of 24 hours! And I think I’m going out with both of them again?  Help?
  • Got serenaded by my friends with the sweet sweet sound of anime theme music.
  • Failed to recognize a guy I had stopped texting at a party. When he hugged me I asked him tipsily, “Wait, do I know you?”
  • Made my date wait about 3 hrs bc my nanny mom was getting her hair dyed. But he paid for my boozy ice cream so all good.
  • Netflix and chilled to Gossip Girl; he quoted along.

Bwog and Drinks:

  • Got very, very wine drunk on Thursday night and got caught by the RA for drinking in my room.
  • Went to the Rare Candy show, was very drunk while collecting donations at the door, and fell on the ground in the mosh pit.
  • Got kicked out of my first gay bar.
  • Drunk texted basically everyone I know.
  • Stayed sober the entire weekend.
  • Between the dates and a friend’s open bar, didn’t pay for any drinks the whole weekend.

Bwog and Food:

  • Tried deep-dish pizza for the first time; cried.
  • Threw up candy hearts (I could see the distinct different colors in my vomit).
  • Had Famiglia for the first time after sleeping for 16 hours and it was the highlight of my weekend.
  • Had a hot pot date in Chinatown & had the cars to and from paid for.
