Permanence is a funny thing, and something we have been increasingly thinking about recently. Though we have both made a few relatively permanent decisions, ranging from getting a tattoo to choosing where to get our degrees, our lives up until this point have remained pretty fluid.
We may or may not have been cyborgs in high school. We somehow managed to attend every meeting for each club even vaguely related to our interests, won awards for sports and woke up chipper at the ungodly hour of 6 a.m. We didn’t have to sacrifice anything, because for some reason, everything was possible. It all fit snugly into the 24-hour day, with time in between for snacks and naps.
POLAR VORTEX #2
As much as we might try to fight it, moving away from home changes things. Surrounding yourself with a community of people at Dartmouth, be they from your floor or your late nights in Robo, is an incredible opportunity to build relationships that blur the lines between friend and family. But what does this mean for the people back home?
For as long as we can remember, we’ve been surrounded by rankings. Our dads shouted at the TV when there was an upset (Erin’s about basketball, Marina’s about assorted Russian music awards). We were both bummed when that girl from PE class suddenly removed us from her Top Eight on MySpace. And don’t even get us started on the Neopets games room.
This week, we took a deeper look at social issues that Dartmouth has confronted (namely, Lohse-pocalypse) and how the College has handled and learned from them. As two juniors (?!) having lived through many less-than-flattering Dartmouth headlines, we have had a lot of time to reflect on our very own social problems and successes.
In light of yesterday’s Oscar nominations announcement, The Dartmouth’s resident awards experts, executive editor Michael Riordan ’15 and Mirror editor Erin Landau ’15, ruminated long and hard on who will win, who will be snubbed and who should claim a naked statuette on March 2. It’s been a pretty good year for movies, but as usual, all the great ones were released in the past three months. With instant classics such as “Diana,” “Machete Kills” and “A Madea Christmas,” we think it’s safe to say that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had no shortage of choices. In a stunning twist, “American Hustle,” “Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave” led the nominations, sweeping the major categories. In case you need helping winning your fraternity Oscar pool or decorating thematically for your awards party, here are our picks for the big show:
As we attempt to adjust to the frozen tundra that is 14W, we’ve noticed a lot of changes at the College on the Hill. Daylight hours have dwindled, King Arthur Flour has reintroduced the brie-and-apple staple to our daily diets and overeager ’18s are wandering their soon-to-be alma mater. And of course, there’s us — your new Mirror editors. We know we have big shoes to fill, especially when it comes to giving you your weekly dose of Overheards and double entendres. Before we dive into the lives of others, we wanted to take a minute to introduce ourselves. After extensive research on OkCupid (online dating is legit, we promise), we’ve come up with profiles to give you a little insight into our deeply private personal lives.
I am a college journalist, but I consider myself light-years away from being qualified to write professionally. My vocabulary isn't extensive enough, my knowledge of political and world issues isn't broad enough and I've yet to fully get over my fear of harsh criticism (read: rude online comments). So, in the Venn diagram of college and professional journalism, it's pretty easy for me to fill in the two opposing sides. The overlapping center, however, may have just as many bullet points. And, I would argue, more substantial ones.
For weeks Brown participated in what he called "guerilla camping," setting up his small one-person tent behind high schools and recreation centers, praying to avoid detection and sheltering himself from the infamous Canadian rain. Riding the lonely trail, Brown struggled to maintain his motivation, eventually experiencing a moment of epiphany during which he knew he had to keep pushing through to prove to himself he could finish. Describing this as one of the most profound moments of his life, Brown said his gap year experience helped him understand his capabilities and get to know himself on a deeper level.
The end of summer vacation has probably never looked so good. By now, you've spent hours perusing College Confidential forums, picking out the perfect, most indestructible shower caddy at Bed Bath and Beyond and poring over your "required" summer reading. We know all your friends have already left for school, but don't worry we're worth the wait.

The 13 speakers, which included television producers and Beilis' relatives, discussed the trial's contemporary politics and its relationship to the history of blood libel.
