COFFEE OR TEA
A TALK SERIES OR AN INTERVIEW SESSION
We are officially back with a vengeance, ladies and gentlemen! We’ve had our fair share of vacations and trips during our semester break (some of us *cough*the lucky goons*cough* even went abroad!) and we feel like it’s a good time as any to finally be back before we begin to lose all interest and passion in pursuing our diplomas and degrees.
I mean, our results almost did kill all our hopes and dreams of living out our lives as fancy schmancy Ir.s with our five-digit salaries and our smoking hot partners and the self-esteem that abandoned us throughout our high school years, but nah. You win some, you lose some.
(wow. that got real.)

Midterm season is here and you might be in a panic, so in conjunction with the hectic season I thought it would be nice to share some tips on last minute studying. Keep in mind that these tips may not be applicable to everyone as people have their differences but generally, these are the most popular tips.
Dear sixty year old me,
Are we still a
Tangled mess of emotions?
Did we learn to
Fight against commotions?
The spider sings as she spins her web,
Her eyes ever mindful of the things around her.
They fly in circles, almost in mockery
Of the open skies she could not conquer.
But she works in silence, those eight eyes glued
She merely spins her silk with no contempt
As they brave themselves ever closer, ever near
Trying to see who’d best the last attempt
She’d pay no heed to the buzz of vulgarity
All those sickening words they spurted out
Because she knew that when the time came soon
She’d put an end to the ceaseless flout
Because wings, as magical as they may be
Were a curse hidden well beneath a blessing
Unlimited your horizons may be: so free?
But lack of walls can also be quite pressing
An overflow of data can rightfully bring down
Even the smartest human being without a doubt
And wings, whose access travels so far
Can surely bring forth a merciless drought
Intelligence is dried, overpowered by sloth
And brains are replaced with a sense of arrogance
“Come forth,” one may say, trying to be “clever”
Only to realize how their efforts may have been perilous
These wings that have taken them far finally break
As they spiral down, too late to have ever realized
The hungrier you are, the more lustful you get
And Icarus fell to his demise: surprised.
And the spider eyes the winged dreamers that day
Struggling for escape, begging to be free
But abuse of liberty comes with a cost
And in this case, their lives became the fee.
