  • Bought a bunch of nice groceries to cook for dinner. Went to Mel’s instead.
  • Was cut off by my aunt at a family dinner after 3 glasses of wine.
  • Stayed at 1020 until closing time for the first time. Pounded back seven drinks and only paid for three.

  • Got drunk and sobered up on Saturday morning, got drunk and sobered up again on Saturday evening, and went to bed before midnight.
  • Drank more Pabst Blue Ribbon than one person should in a weekend.
  • Realized I’m neck-deep in unrequited love.

  • Crashed a Model UN party and funneled their full vodka/chaser supply into red solo cups for betchy solo use.
  • Went to Jungsik for dinner and drinks. Created an elaborate fake backstory about us being grad students who are researching “the sociology of food and drink” when my friend accidentally let something slip to the bartender about us being students at Columbia.
  • Went to my first ever frat party and realized it was not the hype I was expecting.
  • Went to my first Carman “party” with a group of fellow WOC and the people at the party were SHOOK as if they hadn’t seen WOC before.
  • Hung out at 1020 and went to Mel’s after and there was a grand total of 3 people there.

  • Took care of a drunk friend on a bus coming back from Philadelphia full with fellow drunk bandies.

Editor’s note: This post has been updated to more accurately reflect the cause of the Palestinian protests.

Happening in the World: Israeli troops killed seven Palestinians, two of them children, at protests along the border fence. The protests were in response to calls by Hamas, the group that has controlled Gaza for the last 11 years, and have grown worse in recent weeks because of an increasing demand to end the Israeli-Egyptian blockade. More than 500 protestors were injured, including 35 children, four medics, and two journalists.

Happening in the US: Kellyanne Conway revealed to Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of The Union this morning that she is a survivor of sexual assault. She continued to explain why she believes that Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings should not become a part of the #MeToo movement but that women confront their perpetrators and hold them directly accountable.

Happening in NYC: At yesterday’s Global Citizen’s Festival, a bottle that was stepped on made a large popping noise, causing great panic among the crowd that believed it could have been an active shooter. A great rush towards the exit ensued until Coldplay’s Chris Martin came on the stage to calm the crowd. “Nobody is trying to hurt anybody,” Martin said. “You’re all safe, OK?”

Happening on Campus: Dr. Urvashi Sahni, Founder, and CEO of Study Hall Educational Foundation will be having a talk called “Engaging Boys for Gender Justice” on campus from 1 to 2 PM today at the International Affairs Building Room 801.

Happening in the World: A flight in Melbourne, Australia hit a shopping center soon after take-off from Essendon Airport, killing the pilot and four passengers. Authorities found out that the plane’s rudder had been in the wrong position, a simple error that could have been fixed by the pilot before takeoff.

The MitraClip being used to repair heart valves

Happening in the US: In a large clinical trial, doctors have been using a tiny clip in order to repair damaged heart valves among those with heart disease. This device, called the MitraClip, repairs the mitral valve by clipping its two flaps together in the middle. Previously, it was believed that this would have no effect on treating heart disease but in a study conducted across the US and Canada with 614 patients, 92 who got the device were hospitalized for heart failure during the period, and 28 died as opposed to the 151 untreated who were hospitalized for heart failure in the ensuing two years and sixty-one who died.

Happening in NYC: A 52-year old woman stabbed five people, including 3 infants, at an unlicensed maternity center in Queens last Friday. The infants remain in critical condition, while the two adults were stabbed over eight times. The horrific murder has the suspect arrested on five counts for murder and undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

Happening on Campus: The Ukrainian Film Club of Columbia will be hosting a film screening and discussion of “Vulcano,” an irreverent commentary on the Southern Ukrainian steppe, where the Russian Spring came to an end in 2014. It will be held at Deutsches Haus from 7 to 8 PM.

Overseen/Overheard: Football player to another football player in Carman (paraphrased)– Man, I lifted so much last night, I’m still sore… It’s kinda like nutting all over your chest.
