Where in the world is Carmen Senior-diego?


As a senior, I am worried that once I leave Brown I won’t have any college grads to mingle with. I mean, who knows if anyone really lives in this town called New York City?

Middle School Pop Punk Banger – Bowling for Soup – “Girl All The Bad Guys Want” 
So much angst I straight up didn’t understand as a 13 year old, but I totally empathized with the nerdy dude who only “got’s a moped … moped… moped.”  I think that I learned what a moped was in 2007.

Hip-Hop – Kendrick Lamar – “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”
It took me such a long time to figure out he was saying “vibe.” Bitch don’t kill my fight? Bitch don’t kill my vit(amin)? Continue Reading
