Personals: Fainan, Aria, and Laura

hopefully not literally

Fainan Lakha, ladykiller

Valentine’s Day approacheth! Today’s Columbians looking for love are Fainan Lakha, Aria Sharma, and Laura Fisher. Fun fact about Fainan: when he’s not working as a daily editor for Bwog, he’s moonlighting as a sweater vest model! If you want to take any one of these awesome humans on a date, email us and we’ll set it up (and give you ten whole dollars to take ‘em out). If you don’t, we still think you deserve a shot at love. Fill out our short questionnaire and send a picture to personals@bwog.com and the face to the right could be yours.

Name, Year, School, Major: Fainan Lakha, CC ’17, Philosophy or Middle East, South Asia, and Africana Studies…and yeah, I write for bwog.

Preference: Guy for girl

Hometown: Seattle, WA

Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: We meet. We talk. We stop talking.

What redeems you as a human being? I’m just really invested and enthusiastic about whatever’s in the moment… to a fault, perhaps.

Library room of choice: I love the Edward Said memorial library in Butler; it’s a cozy cove full of the best books and vibes and sometimes the annotations on those old tomes hold the lost wisdom of theorists of yore and sometimes they hold old newspaper clippings which is cool, too.

Beverage of choice: Wine (esp. spanish rioja) for the high times and scotch for  when I feel like donning a vest the quiet times.

Guilty Pleasure Song: Work Bitch. (my butler anthem)

Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? The part I always remember is drunkenly reflecting on the evening on my walk back from wherever the hell I was. Cool night air is cool, too.

Historical Hottie? Meera is who I’d say. She was a 16th Century Indian mystical poet who just basically wrote about how much she loved Krishna all the time. There’s something sexy about that much love for the feeling of… love.

Westside aisles are far to narrow for this frivolity

Aria Sharma

 

Name, Year, School, Major: Aria Sharma, BC ’15, Biology

Preference: Classy broad seeking eligible young gentleman

Hometown: I say DC, but I really mean McLean, VA

Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: I vomited; he still tried kissing me.

What redeems you as a human being? I cried after seeing The Lion King on Broadway. Evidence that I have a heart. And feels and emotions and things.

Library room of choice: Ah, studying. Is that why I’m here?

Beverage of choice: Gin. It’s a food group.

Guilty Pleasure Song: All of them. Key favorites include “IMDABES” and “Dancing On My Own.” Warning: Ke$hAria occasionally makes appearances.

Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? Every good night starts out sitting on the steps.

Historical Hottie: Atticus Finch…By which I mean Gregory Peck.

Laura Fisher

 

Name, Year, School, Major: Laura, 2014, CC, Political Science

Preference: Girl for guy

Hometown: I was born in Perth, Australia and then we moved around a lot. I went to high school in Chicago, so let’s go with that!

Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: This happened: “How would you feel about a boyfriend who’s your slave?”

What redeems you as a human being? I can tell a good story. And I can find Waldo in under 10 seconds.

Library room of choice: You can find me in the Ref Room. I have a knack for showing up right when a seat opens up.

Beverage of choice: Coffee. Red wine. Gin and tonic (extra lime). (Would those be good lyrics to a song?)

Guilty Pleasure Song: It’s got to be Lana Del Rey’s “Ride.”

Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? It’s senior year- 1020.

Historial Hottie: Not to be awkward, but young Stalin and Ayatollah Khomeini were real lookers. Also Brahms and Hemingway and just about every Civil War soldier.
