Here we are: the final stop, the end of the line. That is to say, welcome to our final issue of the semester! Spring 2022 has been a doozy, at least for me, but a lovely one. Well. Epic highs and lows, you know the vibe. But post- is always a highlight. The pieces all falling into place as edits coalesce and illustrations fit in between them and layout ties it all together with a little bow. Prod night, with our conversations like a runaway train.
Our last issue contains multitudes, as I’m sure you’ve come to expect from us. In A&C, one writer critiques the culture of beauty at Brown, while the other discusses her attempt to be alone without feeling lonely. Our Feature writer learns about the cult her father grew up in and reflects on her relationship with him. One of our Narrative writers considers the lifespan of an idea while the other thinks about endings, regrets, and love. Lastly, our Lifestyle writer provides a spring starter pack!
So welcome to our final issue of the semester! I’ll be missing prod nights for the long months standing between now and the fall. And most of all, I’ll be missing our senior post-its who will be graduating! The life of the party, the backbone of this magazine… Whatever will we do without them? Perhaps they’ll return as post- ghosts in the future, as our former Editor in Chief did just today. One can only hope.
