Every morning, right around 7 a.m., the sunlight hits The Ridges just right. Its dark red bricks look a bit brighter, and I can see the light gleaming off its black metal gilding. From my ninth story view, it is my favorite thing to wake up to, save for the sunrise. Its architectural design is beautiful, but – because of my love of history – I like it mainly for its gothic features.
Jacinda Ardern’s last day of office was Jan. 24th. Ardern was well known amongst the public for her empathetic and compassionate leadership style and for successfully navigating New Zealand through the tricky COVID-19 pandemic. Many around the world were shocked and saddened to see her leave office this week. I, however, celebrate her decision as the mark of a great leader.
After the last two and a half years of a pandemic, some of us have struggled to keep busy. Some people took on a new hobby or pastime during the beginning of quarantine to stave away boredom. Some people binged new shows and read books they’d been waiting ages to get time to read. Some completed new household projects, or took the time to purchase pets.
We all know the same sad story: a streaming site has an amazingly written, produced and acted show. Despite how good the show is, and even if it has a cult following, the streaming site sends out a tweet abruptly announcing that show’s cancellation. Fans are rightfully horrified. Was the viewership not high enough? Were there behind-the-scenes disputes between producers? Or, did the fans simply not buy enough merchandise or generate enough profit?
This past Sunday, the annual Involvement Fair was hosted on College Green. Hundreds of student organizations pitched themselves to potential new members, showcasing what they had to offer to anyone who stopped by. The Involvement Fair is an iconic part of starting off the school year for many, including me. While observing the fair, there’s a sense of unity and wonder as our historic green is flooded with eager students, socializing and connecting with their peers.
Ohio University’s administrators must be kicking themselves right now.
Ever since I hit my teens, I’ve made it my personal mission to reject the blatant materialism that pervades our society. Don’t get me wrong, I love going shopping as much as the next person – except, that usually only occurs once a year. I understand the joy in buying or receiving new things; it’s serotonin inducing, on some level, and it can be fun to show off the latest fad or trend to our friends.
Late last semester, Gillian Ice, special assistant to the president for public health operations, and other Ohio University administrators set about the task of preparing for this semester. At that time, COVID cases had been steadily increasing due to the already hardy Delta variant, then they exploded due to Omicron’s arrival. President Hugh Sherman already established that the mask requirement would still be in effect for Spring 2022. Gillian Ice stated in an email on Nov. 16 that OU would require on-campus students to take an at-home COVID-19 test before moving in.
“Friday nights are for The Union” has become my unofficial slogan this semester. More often than not, I find myself making the short walk in shoes made for jumping and dancing, dressed for a usually unplanned night at my favorite music joint.
It’s not uncommon for public figures to have their private life scrutinized; intimate relationships, family life and medical conditions have all been examined under figurative microscopes by the press and the internet alike. Many more public figures have had scandals scrutinized, though. We all remember the infamous Ariana Grande donut-licking incident, Lil Nas X’s Satan shoes situation and when the internet unearthed Chrissy Teigen’s vitriolic tweets.
At some point, we’ve all done the math — the pandemic started March 2020 and, somehow, has continued now into October 2021. It hasn’t been slowly tapering off, either. Just a month ago, Athens was in the throes of a violent surge of the Delta variant. That’s over 18 months of death, economic instability, anxiety and isolation, along with a cluster of generally awful consequences of quarantine.
