At MIT, one inevitably collects a lot of shirts. Like…a lot. There are shirts from random events, from REX/Rush, athletics, internships, and of course, Career Fair. These shirts pile up in your wardrobe slowly over the course of 3 years, and you pretty much have no other wardrobe. But then,… Read More
A Comprehensive Guide to My Favorite Places on Campus can't leave without making one more post of this formatSome people may remember the sporadic posts that I made in this format. Some of these went viral09 if you know..you know and some remained fairly unread, but… Read More
Some of you may recall Shuli’s whiteboard post, and upon this whiteboard were a number of (SFW) out of context quotes. Well, as it happens, most living communities have some version of this exact whiteboard, whether physical or virtual. Capturing the absolute batshit random stuff that people say on… Read More
Like most bloggers, as a starry-eyed freshman, I wrote a bio that has not stood up terribly well against the test of time. This isn’t a criticism on how cringy freshman year Nisha was;11… Read More
I mentioned this in my last post, but I’m graduating soon! At the end of this week, to be precise. Once January 29th comes and goes, I will no longer be a student blogger, and will have graduated to the nebulous realm of cruftiness. So, in the name of going… Read More
Back in November, after our adventure visiting every stop on the MBTA, CJ and I promised that we would write a post full of wonderful facts and obscure lore about the history of the T. This is not that post. However, in the process of doing research for it,… Read More

I was at the park near my grandparents’ place today, picking up graphic novels from a squat library. I gave a wide berth to a mom with her kids at the playground, and a trio of middle school boys in neon orange masks. I hadn’t been to that… Read More
This blog post is an ode to whiteboards, which I love very, very dearly. My own history with whiteboards, how I use them in my life, and perhaps most importantly, how to fix old and dirty whiteboards. You know… Read More
MIT’s history is a topic that’s become increasingly interesting to me over the past few months. I used to think history was pretty dry, but I think this is mostly because the history people study just… doesn’t interest me. Like, consider this admissions page, or this… Read More
Hello! I’m writing this very, very smol post to tell you that the MIT Mystery Hunt is starting, today, January 15th, at 12 PM EDT. MIT Mystery Hunt is a time-honored tradition, which you can learn more about in CJ’s enormous… Read More
Today, I have a great idea. Recently I had a conversation with a friend where she admitted to me that she really screwed up academically this semester, and she seemed to be pretty embarrassed about this. BUT luckily I’d had my own disaster-semester in the… Read More
In cross country, you hear a lot about running through the pain, but at the same time, avoiding injury. I have deep scars on both knees, from times I’d scrape my knee and then keep running, tearing the wound open day after day. Thick calluses over my right Achilles tendon,… Read More
