‘Anthem:’ A bioware tragedy

A lot of negative things have been said about the game “Anthem” and its developer Bioware already, and people who know about the game are wise to stay away from it. I was originally going to report on the happenings surrounding the game. But after some encouragement from Jonah, our beloved editor of the Arts […]

‘Dr. Sleep’ is a worthy follow-up to two classics

“Doctor Sleep” is a sequel to the classic Stanley Kubrick horror film “The Shining,” both of which are based on bestselling Stephen King novels. This movie follows an older Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor), who is trying to move on from the events of “The Shining.” Dan must face his past when the True Knot—a dangerous […]

Fall Flex 2019: A first timer’s take

“Sold out” are the words that first caught my eye by the ticket booth in the Shapiro Campus Center (SCC). Fall Flex, sold out? Our expensive tuition gets us free concerts? It must be a really big deal here. It must be a really good time! Wow, Brandeis is so cool.  For those that don’t […]

I love cucumber fruit water!

I must admit that guzzling water is one of my favorite things to do. I stop at every water fountain I pass, and I do not take tentative sips. When I was a kid, I would heft my undeveloped body onto countertops and dip my head under faucets. I drain water bottles. I wish I […]

Getting your just desserts: the incontrovertible truth, part II

Sksksksk, fellow VSCO girls! I have just “ooped” into another rant (if I used that incorrectly, blame my mother for birthing me). Get ready to fill your Hydro Flasks with sugar and your tummies with joy as we continue this caloric cavalcade.  You know the deal: I’ve got opinions, and you’ve got eyes. Let’s do […]

You don’t have to eat it for one day

The biggest question I always get from people when I tell them I have stopped eating meat is: Why? Their question is often followed by a long lecture about all the great benefits that come with eating meat, all the nutrients that I’m missing out on, all the great food groups I’m missing, etc. My […]

A call for manners: please pick up

I would like to whole-heartedly thank Brandeis Confessions for being a wonderful source of inspiration and reminding us all about everything that is wrong with Brandeis.  The dining hall is a particular place in desperate need of more consideration of others. I am not even talking about people who push each other during lunch and […]

Why am I here?: A Catholic at ‘Jewish Harvard’

If your eyes are immediately wondering what this article is because of the title, then I have old-timey click-baited you into reading this. Let’s face it: You’re this far into the article, which is literally two sentences, but it’s too deep to give up. So, let me explain the title by telling you all a […]
