Or, we all can just feel really inspired by the timely finding of an interestingly marketed lip balm product. Pucker up, cause Bacchanal is on the (rainy and cold) horizon, and everyone’s gonna be looking for warmth.

Meet me 80-20

  • “Watched a belligerent man throw up on the subway in the seat directly across from me @ 4:30 am Saturday night while his drunk significant other laughed at him.”
  • “Met my big <3”
  • “Got a fish for my friends’ room. Went to the Frick Museum hungover AF with my Lit Hum class.”
  • “Saw a traditional Japanese ensemble play; it was pretty rad. Got distracted by a cat at a party and spent most of my time apologizing to it for the drunken manhandling of the other guests.”
  • “Was invited over to someone’s apartment to play board games, which I respectfully declined. Fell asleep in the Hartley sky lounge while reading a copy of Augustine’s confessions I found there. It had a romantic dedication written inside the front cover.”
  • “Visited a pal at Yale for her birthday. Finished a pitcher of sangria in five minutes with my pal’s roommate. Watched my roommate throw up via facetime.”
  • “Went on a weird tinder date // p sure he was drunk at 4 in the afternoon.”
  • “Crashed a Mt. Holyoke trip to NYC. No one suspected that I didn’t belong. Got a free ticket to the Heidi Chronicles out of it.”
  • “Hosted friends from California, who proceeded to flirt the shit out of my friends here.”
  • “​Got pelted in the face by snow in Boston while walking down Commonwealth Ave. Saw my sister for last time before her undergrad commencement in May. Got confused for a Colombian when asked where I was from and I answered Columbia, figuring that the people meant “what school are you from?” so a guy tried to talk to me in Spanish, and I didn’t understand a single word he said.”
