Fly safe, sweet angel

Quick story about Skip Bayless: I was watching his old segment, “1st & Ten,” when they hosted All-NBA center Dwight Howard. Dwight looked ripped, as usual (and was just coming off a disappointing season, as usual). They shot the you-know-what for a bit, until the gigantic man finally declared: “I

Reading, rekindled

As a child, my nose was always in a book. My passion for reading was unparalleled. It allowed me to escape into another realm, where I could indulge in a world so alien from mine that I felt adrenalized just turning the crisp pages of a new book. It sparked

Was It Yellow Fever?

Asian chicks. They got the brains, the looks, and the bod. Or so they say. “I can’t explain it—it’s just an attraction.” We had been dating for a few weeks and, until then, everything had felt like a dream. He was the fourth white man who had directly confessed his

Choosing myself over white people

On the night of the summer solstice, I sat on my co-op’s lower roof with my new housemate Emily as we stared off into the fading sunset, admiring the rainbow haze that lingered after a long, overwhelming day of sun. Although Emily and I had only interacted a few times

Travel

More than just potato farms

In the beginning of this summer I got the chance to visit Idaho with my family. I had never visited and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. I seriously didn’t even know where it was located on a map, and I found myself quickly getting it confused with Iowa or any other “irrelevant” state. Everyone is constantly filled with thoughts of Idaho growing potatoes, and frankly that’s the only thing I had known about it prior to my visit.

SF day trip: a little taste of Italy

By now, you’ve probably roamed through the streets of Chinatown and sat by the water at Fisherman’s Wharf. But perhaps you have yet to wander into the adjacent North Beach. North Beach is San Francisco’s Little Italy. It has historically been home to many Italian-Americans and used to be an actual beach before the city’s borders were extended.

Locals only

We’ve all done it before — scoffed at the tourists gaping in the hometowns we’ve come to take for granted. Coming home from college definitely comes with a newfound appreciation for being a local and, with that, an entitled sense of all-knowingness. So here’s to all of those Internet dweebs out there who come to our sacred places of living and have absolutely no idea what they’re doing.

Mushroom and goat cheese farfalle

Pasta is one of the easiest and cheapest meals you can cook for yourself, so why not do it right? Be sure to choose a fun pasta such as farfalle, or bow tie, pasta, which needn’t just be saved for black tie events. And remember the key to a great pasta dish is minimalism — two or three key ingredients so one doesn’t overpower the others. So throw in your favorite veggies and cheese, in good balance, and chances are you’re going to have an amazing meal.
