I wanted someone to talk to me. I wanted someone to tell me why they swiped right; I wanted to be seen so, so badly.

Some of us swipe right to cope

I wanted someone to talk to me. I wanted someone to tell me why they swiped right; I wanted to be seen so, so badly.

It’s never fun to feel like a stranger in your own body, but it’s also completely unfair to be angry at yourself for feeling new things—being new things. That’s an overdramatic way of saying that after years of being pro-meet-cute and anti-dating app, I am now on Bumble.

White people, stop telling POC to vote for Biden

I felt so hopeful. I thought that this election cycle would be different. I was sure Bernie Sanders would clinch the Democratic nomination for president. My state, Virginia, was one of many up for grabs on Super Tuesday, and even though Sanders lost here along with the majority of other states that....

Collage kit: things I miss

Collage kit: things I miss

When making this collage kit, I thought about the things I miss, like the summer that I associate with the movie Call Me By Your Name, the feeling of being in love, being with my friends, and skateboarding in the city.

Alex Garland only has three directing credits to his name, but he’s quickly become the go-to name for existential sci-fi. (The objectively perfect movie Ex Machina is his directorial debut, although he wrote for 28 Days Later and Never Let Me Go, among others.) Devs, the first FX show to stream on...

“Portrait of a Lady on Fire” brings equality to the artist-muse relationship

As I watched Céline Sciamma’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019), I felt I had done it a disservice solely by putting off seeing it for so long. The film did laps around the festival circuit, gathering every accolade imaginable before its wide release was cut short by COVID-19. Still, while its i...

Love in times of corona: breakups

It’s amazing to see how being alienated can help a person heal from a broken heart.

In this time of constant uncertainty, relationships are hard. While gathering these breakup stories, I encountered way more positivity than I’d expected. The girls who spoke to me had benefited from being alone.

When Mindy Kaling posted an open call for South Asian-American teenagers for her then-unnamed Netflix show, half my Twitter timeline wanted to audition. Roles for Desi actresses are already so elusive, even more so if you’re a newcomer. Not even a year later the show arrived on Netflix homepages ...

The importance of protecting incarcerated people during COVID-19

In the eight years since that episode aired, unfortunately, nothing has changed in America’s title as having the most incarcerated citizens per capita.

On day 13 of quarantine, I siphoned my friend’s HBO login, which temporarily fueled my academic procrastination even more. Finally, I had access to watching The Newsroom, the Aaron Sorkin-created political drama series about a fictional cable news network in New York City.

On hooking up when you’ve never hooked up

I made out with a boy at a club during the first week of school, and it was...so bad.

I did not get laid in high school. I shared a chaste kiss with a guy at summer camp when I was fourteen, and then spent four years living a life of celibacy. In all honesty, this was pretty voluntary. At the time, I longed to receive male attention, but only from a safe distance; the thought of actu...

There is no shortage of suffering right now.

I want to preface this by saying I know the issues that I’m about to talk about aren’t as serious as what doctors, nurses, vulnerable populations, and ill people are facing. There is no shortage of suffering right now. I just want to talk about the struggles I and other seniors are facing as our...

Why do we love when guys sext with sound?

if you’re stuck alone inside because you don’t have a quarantine boyfriend—then I’m still strongly advocating for your horny self to try sound-sexting.

On April 11th, TikTok user @nayeleeeee posted a video featuring the intro of a Lizzo song and a simple message in tandem. “I’ve been waiting for this one. Turn it up!” She mouths, gesturing to a text box with the words “when he finally sends you a video of him nutting with sound.”

My habit of constantly bringing up the critically-acclaimed, sharply-written TV series Fleabag in conversations that don’t concern it is a testament to just how unmissable it is. It’s so good that after I watched its two short but sickeningly sweet seasons, I decided I could do without my person...

Without further ado, here’s my favorite makeup routine for staying home.

It’s a weird time to love beauty. We’re all at home, all of the time—so applying a full face of makeup seems like a terrible waste of time. But there’s something to be said for sprucing yourself up just for you, and not for the general public. By spending some time on grooming, you’ll feel...

Why it’s time to rethink Instagram during the COVID-19 lockdown

In the midst of this quiet chaos, it’s mental health I’m thinking about.

The spread of coronavirus has called time on life as we know it, leaving thousands dead and thousands more infected. But it’s also affected the healthy, whose lives have changed too.

One thing the entire world has in common is that we’re all thinking really deeply right now.

A year ago, I was studying in Germany when I had to return to the United States only a month into my spring semester for medical reasons. Last week, in upstate New York, I stuffed the contents of my dorm room into trash bags and packed my things into the trunk of my mom’s car. The feeling wasn’t...
