New year, new photo! “Cool for the Semester” definitely had to go now that the semester is over and it’s cold(ish) outside.
I am so psyched to be back. Break was long. If we are going to be honest, it got really boring. And what do people do when they’re bored and single and college-aged? Hit up their exes. These run-ins can be excruciatingly uncomfortable, super fun, or even just plain forgettable. Most ex stories I’ve heard from this break fall into the following categories that I’ve recorded for your procrastinating pleasure.
The Super Nostalgic One: Often found at those not-so-fun parties back home that you feel obligated to attend so as not to seem like a Netflix-hermit, the Super Nostalgic Ex just wants to reminisce. You two haven’t hooked up since the 10th grade and haven’t spoken since the 11th, but the Super Nostalgic (and Pretty Damn Drunk) Ex is determined to tell you that “you’re the one who got away.” They insist, in fact. It’s flattering, but you’re just sitting there trying to remember if you even really “dated” this like they say you did.
This is how the Super Nostalgic Ex feels the next day when they wake up, sober, and remembers what they said to you.
Let’s all face facts: Winter break is long. Ridiculously long. You’re going to find yourself getting very bored and probably even very horny. With all that free time, winter break is a great time to get down with that ex you still talk to, that one person in high school you always had a thing for, or someone you never noticed before but who really glo’d up since the last time you saw them.
But how likely are you to get with your back-home bae (whoever that may be) this break?
Note: One of the bloggers took this quiz, got a 100%, and has already hooked up with the guy she had in mind while taking it. Does that mean that this quiz is science? Yes.
What do your results mean?

While most of us are excited to get back to Brown, many of us are wary of getting back to “University.” Fear no more: this summer playlist will extend your vacation till the first leaf (or snowflake) falls. Whether you’re writing an essay, putting the finishing touches on your dorm decor, or dreading the first hint of cold weather, we’ve got you covered from Azealia to Zedd. Now put on some sunscreen and finish up that paper.
During the fifteen or so minutes before the curtains (yes, real curtains) opened Sunday night, swankily dressed student actors, directors, producers, and crew members chatted as the last remaining people trickled into the Avon, struggling to find an open seat. By the time the show was over, it was that clear Brown Motion Pictures had brought the house down, each film receiving thunderous applause.
If you were unlucky enough to miss the Spring Premiere, don’t fret. The films will be available online on the BMP website at some point, and when they are, you should see all of them.
On the Run – Directed by Bill Marcy ‘17 and written by Jordan Stein ‘16On the Run is a comedic lens into to the life of a workaholic clean-freak Max Greenwater (Brendan George ‘18), who commits a petty crime that he believes has got him in way over his head.
See it for: Despite the use of the timeworn germaphobe trope, this film is able to stand out via George’s hilariously frantic body language and outbursts, a series of hysterical three second cut scenes, and a fantastic jazzy soundtrack.
Happy Spring Break! Just like you, BlogDailyHerald is taking a week-long hiatus to shelve our stress, relax, and catch up on sleep (we need a break too!). We’ll be slowing down production, but be sure to check out our Facebook page for more frequent (read: miscellaneous) updates…and don’t forget to order your Bear Head spring tanks before March 31!
We’ll see you right back here next week. Warning: We’re probably going to be really jealous of your tan.
