…And we thought there was nothing cuter than our new pet Kacheek! This video is 2 minutes and 15 seconds long, but we recommend blocking out a good 20 minutes to enjoy this gem. The slow-mo could not be any more precious. Warning: this may make you cry out of sheer happiness, so if you are in a public place studying, take the necessary precautions. We’re not quite sure who Mark is, but we were ready to call him until we saw that all nine puppies have already been sold. (We might just have to call him anyway.)
If you’re feeling adventurous like these little pups, check out these six-week-old puppies (what’s up with the fish-eye in the first five seconds?) or the litter’s FIRST TIME OUTSIDE! It just gets better and better. If you have time (we know you do), this is also a keeper. And this. Also this.
Everyone knows college students, and Brown students in particular, love contradictory lifestyle choices. That’s why we gather wasteful amounts of food when we’re at the Ratty but the to-go section is “eco-to-go,” and why it’s not weird to hate on capitalism in your political science class and then take Principles of Economics to be “practical.”
So why not do yoga in the Rock during finals period? It may seem weird to stress detox in such a studious environment, but it’s also kind of awesome. Go study, then realize you didn’t do most readings, then worry about failing the class and potentially failing at life… and then go do some some yoga and tell yourself you don’t care about classes or grades anyway! The classes only last for 30 minutes and are taking place at the Rock every night this week at 9 p.m. Then, because you’ve been healthy and exercised, maybe you should go get some pizza. It makes sense…
Know how excited you get when you leave class in Wilson or lunch in the Blue Room and find hoards of tail-wagging dogs waiting to cuddle up to you on the Main Green? With weather like we’ve had recently, Heavy Petting isn’t likely to pop up and brighten our day—but that doesn’t mean we can’t take relief from furry creatures as we
troll the Internet study diligently this finals period. With that in mind, we present DogDailyHerald, a compilation of dogs who are known and loved by members of the Brown community. It’s said that dogs and their owners come to resemble each other, so we’ve noted what we feel we share with our canine companions. The need for dogs will continue through finals, so if you’re not pictured here, send us your picture and resemblance and we’ll feature you in the next installment.
Ana Colón ’14: “[Didi] is much more graceful than me, and has much better hair. But we’re both very cuddly and are huge daddy’s girls. Also, this dog is clever as f*ck. She can open f*cking doors and let herself into the house because she is the queen.” [Read more →]
It’s that time of year again. The impending doom of finals also means that Pizza Nite is upon us once more. In this semesterly tradition, the library staff brings out boxes and boxes and boxes of pizza… and did I mention more boxes? (And cookies and brownies — and some apples to be healthy.)
Let them eat pizza. Rock tonight (Tuesday), SciLi tomorrow (Wednesday), both at 9 p.m.

Today a monkey wearing a fur coat wandered around a Toronto Ikea and the Internet rejoiced. FUCKING CANADA, AMIRITE???
As we head into reading period, we’re making the transition from time-wasters to study breaks. Same objective (now more than ever, obviously), but more in quantity. Happy studying (and breaking)!
Have days of reading, writing, and studying completely worn you out? Have you fallen victim to the reading period blues? Have you been anxiously waiting at the edge of your seat for a friend/anonymous person to drop some lines about you on Brown University Compliments to help lift your spirits, but haven’t yet found your name of the page (keep checking, we promise it will be up soon!)? In the meantime, the compliments doctor is in—straight from the instant gratification department, here are some emergency compliments to reinvigorate and inspire you as you chip away at everything on your to-do list. As long as you keep telling the site that you “still feel crappy,” the compliments will keep rolling in; otherwise, the site will ask you if you want to buy a print of the compliment that made you feel better (…which also may not be the worst thing). Quick! Check it out now! It’s an emergency!
Reading period has officially started, so naturally students are avoiding studying at all costs. Take a break from SciLi living and check out these cool events going on this weekend:
Tonight, the Bear Necessities and Higher Keys will join together for the A Beary Keys Holiday Concert. The concert is at 8 p.m. in Salomon. The combination of a capella and holiday music is priceless. But actually, admission is free.
If you can’t make it tonight, or don’t get your fix of music, tomorrow night there’ll be a midnight organ concert in Sayles featuring 14 a capella groups. The concert begins at midnight, but make sure to get there early so you don’t have to fight the person in a Snuggie for a spot.
The Blue Room — home to no shortage of desert specials — will feature cookie sandwiches today starting at 4 p.m. What exactly is a cookie sandwich, you ask? Aaron Fitzsenry, culinary manager for retail dining, explained in an email to us:
— You pick a couple fresh cookies, like choc chip, oatmeal, cranberry and white choc, or double choc mint. This is chocolate heavy.
— You pick either Espresso Fudge Ripple or Caramel Caribou (with choc cups) ice cream and we make an ice cream cookie sandwich. Really chocolate heavy.
— You get to enjoy this monster with a cup of Mocho, my cappuccino/cocoa mix. And marshmallows. Lots of mini marshmallows.
