Around the world in one week: exploring D.C.ís restaurant scene

Every year, summer break provides the perfect opportunity to travel and explore, whether it be a one day road trip to a nearby beach, or an adventurous month spent hiking in the mountains.

It takes a village

Some Blair students have parents who check Edline religiously, help with homework and donít let their children leave the house unmonitored. Others opt for complete freedom, letting their children party and take care of their own business without oversight.

Loud rap music blasts throughout the house, the floor vibrating on account of the bass. A soft haze has settled around packed rooms that were nearly vacant only an hour ago. Bottles of alcohol adorn the messy counters and tables around which laughing teenagers converse.

Cheap Eats in Silver Spring

You're walking down the street as the pangs of hunger begin to settle in, but there are only a few meager bills in your pocket. Everyone's been there. Sometimes hunger strikes at the most inopportune time.

Jelly-icious

Doughnuts can be too sweet, too messy, and too oily. But, I've decided to be gracious and give doughnuts a chance.

Volunteer to beat the cold

Even though the holidays are over, itís important to carry on with those feelings of family, of love and of giving back. It's time to help someone else, whether it be through monetary donations or hard work, by planting a new tree or handing someone a bowl of hot food.

Living in the liberal bubble

Welcome to the bubble; where Donald Trump can't touch us. This is a safe space, a place where open-mindedness and inclusivity comes at the cost of ignorance towards any and all alternative world views. Not even the electoral college is allowed inside.

Merry Krishnamas?

Iím a Hindu who also celebrates Christmas. Itís not as weird as it sounds. Everyone has their own Christmas traditions, just like my family.
