Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend! I know I did: this weekend I was in DC to watch the Presidential Inauguration. It was exhausting, but an incredible chance to witness one of the most sacred parts of our democracy with 600,000 similarly excited (and freezing cold) Americans. I would describe the experience as the perfect funky blend of pomp, circumstance, and Beyonce - exactly what makes America great in the first place.

There's enough of a campus bubble that Yalies often find all they need to keep their schedules bustling and exciting without setting foot off campus, but for those willing to explore, there's a wealth of opportunities to explore all around in New Haven.

When people ask me, “What are some of your best moments at Yale?,” I usually do a double take. After blurting out “Bulldog Days!” (that too from my pre-frosh years!), I quickly realize why that was my first instinct. My best moments at Yale have undoubtedly been with Yalies. But usually not while we’re all pigeonholed as presidents, majors, and types in New Haven.

I don't watch much TV in general, but LOST was one of the few shows I got really into while it was running. But because I had a sweet seminar on Postwar Japanese Culture that met every Tuesday night the same time as the show aired before it wrapped up last spring, I watch it online later (thank goodness for Hulu.com, the best friend of college students everywhere). So when chillin' in my common room with a couple of buddies gathered round the laptop, I was surprised to see in the final season's episode "Dr. Linus", Yale pops up in in an alternate reality flashforward.
Disclaimer: I'm going to talk about LOST, but I swear, this is spoiler free and doesn't require any familiarity with LOST. I'm gonna run on a bit of a tangent, though, so read it through all the way before you draw any conclusions.
