It’s (Almost!!) Time for Spring Crew!

February 13, 2017 6:47 pm

On Wednesday night, the Colby Crew team had its annual “It’s Almost Spring Season!!!” meeting. On Thursday, it snowed almost 8 inches. This weekend, we got a foot. Today, we are supposed to get two more feet. Clearly, “almost” is the crucial word when referring to spring season. The abundance of snow causes slight issues for…

“Nora”

February 1, 2017 4:12 pm

Hello, all! Second semester here at Colby College begins today. It definitely doesn’t seem like it should be called spring semester; it is currently snowing, and we are supposed to get a couple inches. Before we let go of JanPlan and jump into this next semester, however, I thought you might like to see what…

Watch something like Black Mirror instead (if you’re looking…

Friday is for Favorites: Sweater (And Finals) Weather

December 2, 2016 8:55 pm

December has arrived at Colby College. If this hadn’t been made evident by the drop in temperature, the frost on the hood of my car, or the sun going down at 4 p.m. (seriously, Maine?), then the invasion of Christmas sweaters and the dreaded scent of finals give it away. All my friends, be they…

Adventures with Stephen King

November 22, 2016 2:21 pm

Fun fact: I hate being scared. I hate horror movies, I hate scary books, I hate the idea of monsters—I used to sleep with a blanket wrapped over my head and my whole body buried under the covers so that if the Thing Outside the Window decides to come in, I will not be seen….
