'Twas the week of my finals...

17 Things that NDC Students Know To Be True (Finals Edition)
Ana Plumlee

I'm a list maker. I have a wall devoted to post-it notes that are all lists of things I'm thinking about or things I have to do. Finals week is not a time when I stop making lists, because list making is not a game. So, here's a list of things that I find that NDC students know to be true during finals week of fall semester.

  1. They take 24-hour quiet hours very seriously. Like conduct hearing and a fine if you violate them seriously.
  2. If you thought that 8:30 classes were early, just wait til your final starts at 8:15.
  3. Sweatpants and hoodies are your best friend.
  4. You will do a lot of crying.
  5. You will order a lot of pizza.
  6. You will do anything to get energy. Energy drinks are preferred.
  7. You will pull at least 3 all-nighters during finals week.
  8. Anger is the default emotion. And you will get irrationally angry at everyone at some point.
  9. Junk food is your best friend.
  10. You will have a mental breakdown at one point.
  11. You will fall asleep while studying.
  12. You will sing parodies of songs to describe finals week feels.
  13. Christmas is torture.
  14. You will sleep any chance you get.
  15. Everything will make you cry.
  16. Netflix, lots of Netflix.
  17. Everyone is religious and believes in God during finals...they want to pass!

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran.
