BOSTON, MA — According to reports, Boston University senior Emily Goldin (CAS ’13) will be having a healthy, safe, and pleasant Wednesday, and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop her.
    Sources close to Goldin have confirmed that despite the recent tragedies that have befallen her community, the Anthropology major will be attending her classes, dressing in a new spring outfit, and visiting whatever friends she damn well pleases. 
   
“I am shocked, saddened, and at a loss for words regarding the events that transpired on Monday,” Goldin told the Bunion. “The grief that I feel for those affected, mixed with the relief that those closest to me are ok is a very confusing set of emotions. I’m also a little embarrassed to admit that I am still quite scared.” As a result of these feelings, Goldin has announced that she will be living today to the absolute fullest.
    “Whoever did this wanted us to be scared, wanted to create some poisonous feelings within our community. But like, fuck that” Goldin said as she waited in line at her favorite coffee shop despite being five minutes late to class. “Instead, I’m going to have fun and tell the people around me I love them — oh and can I also get a chocolate chip muffin?”
    Before class, Goldin had already donated blood, called her mother to talk about the fun they had when they came to watch the Boston Marathon together in 1997, and stopped by her best friend’s room just to hang out for a little while.
   
“My friend Dave was in Copley on Monday and he is still a little shaken up, so I think we are going to go out for ice cream this afternoon,” Goldin said before embracing a classmate on the sidewalk and asking about her day.  “I’m not even a big sports fan, but a bunch of us are going to get together to watch the Red Sox later.”
   
At press time, Goldin was enjoying being alive in a world where compassion and unity prevail, thank you very much.

The Geek’s Guide to Dating by Eric Smith

This looks super cute! You can preview the first couple of chapters on Amazon to see more but it’s got quirky geek humour, fun illustrations, and addresses some interesting topics like girls not actually being princesses that need saving.

Odin and Loki on Jane.

Isn’t it interesting that Odin says, in effect, “don’t attach yourself to humans because their mortality makes them unworthy” while Loki says “don’t attach yourself to humans because their mortality will cause you pain”.

YES
