Ah yes, fall break. Halloween is officially over, Thanksgiving is done before it even begins, and the holiday season is upon us! We hope you caught up on sleep, got ahead in your classes, and enjoyed wholesome family dinners. Bwog, on the other hand, is here to share stories from their eventful weekend.
Bwog Gets Political
Knocked on hundreds of doors, many in the rain, to encourage people to vote
Got told I looked “WAY too young to vote” by a poll worker…at least the bartenders here disagree
Watched the midterms while drinking svedka straight
Texted hundreds of Georgia voters on behalf of Stacey Abrams and only got called the c-word a couple times
Watched Doctor Who instead of election coverage
Got my vote suppressed (fuck you, Brian Kemp)
Voted for the first time!
Found out that the place I’m from is filled with old republicans. I’m talking so old, they all had walkers and were so slow
Got sad and ate my feelings because I am not allowed to vote in this country. I wish I could help change it for the better
Watched my polisci major roommate almost give herself an ulcer over midterm elections
Bwog being Bwog
Got drunk in the student center at Smith
Played a lot of drunk Clue :)
Quit drinking. For real this time. Let’s see how it goes.
Destroyed my bank account at a Brooks Brothers in Florida. Woke up the next morning and found out that my bank malfunctioned and put about just as much as I spent into my account for no reason.
Met my last hookup’s wife (context: they were not engaged or married when we did anything)
Tried weed for the first time and proceeded to throw up
Ran into another one of my tinder matches at the law school
Won a round of Cards Against Humanity at e’s despite being (probably) the drunkest person there

Got high while overlooking the Cambridge skyline across the Charles River at night
Hooked up with someone else for the first time since breaking up with my ex
Two friends (who are ex’s) got into drama because one hooked up with the other’s best friend at a party we went to
Tried to diffuse drama
Took a break from diffusing drama to meet sister’s friends
Ran into a girl from my high school at an MIT frat party. Also ran into a guy wearing a Columbia 2021 shirt at a different MIT frat party.

Realized I should’ve considered going to school on the west coast
Went to Boston to visit my sister and two friends
Missed my megabus
Drove for the first time since August, in a rental car, from NYC to a forest 40 miles upstate. Am honestly really proud of myself for how well it went.
Invited my friend to come on an ecology field trip with me over fall break, only to nearly get us both lost in the woods
Took my younger sister to a concert in which I was almost crushed by a white guy with a feather earring and his manic fans
Drove a car for the first time in two months and almost hit a tree
Got asked if Florida is in a different time zone than New York
Was told by my parents that we are moving, so I spent most of fall break cleaning out closets and shelves so that only the essentials and the important things will be packed in boxes
Gained a new appreciation for suburbia
Witnessed the absolute ghost town that is Barnard campus during fall break
Went to the so-called armpit state of America aka New Jersey
Went to Philly and saw UPenn’s campus! They have insane mansions as frat houses
Used my dad’s bookshelf for research instead of Butler
Walked around the Philly rain for 5 and a half hours

Slept for nine hours, three nights in a row
Cried while hugging my dog
Cried eating a home-cooked meal
