editor's note [s24] [06]

Dear Readers,

Didn’t see you there. Probably because today I went to the optometrist and got my first prescription. My 20/20 long years of boasting perfect vision have finally come to a close. This afternoon, I got to live out my long-time dream of trying on every pair of glasses in Warby Parker. For every pair I donned, I could imagine the new person I would become. I can see myself in a pair of chunky square tortoiseshell glasses, studying late at night in the Rock. Or maybe with the clear wide-rimmed glasses in a coffee shop downtown, sipping an overpriced matcha. The metal wire-framed glasses would transform me into the mysterious girl walking down Thayer, big headphones drowning out the noise. In the face of this upheaval, I am reminded that each day brings a new opportunity to become the person I’ve always wanted to be. With or without new glasses. 

This week in post-, our writers, too, contemplate momentous life changes. In narrative, one writer muses on the triviality of life upon turning 20, while the other writes about crochet as a means of weaving together her past and present. Meanwhile in feature, our writer reflects on the growth and loss of her plants, a reflection of her transition to a summer move. In A&C this week, one writer contemplates the circular nature of life and grief, and the other speaks to building familiarity in her house, transforming it into a home. One lifestyle writer similarly muses on the meaning of home, struggling to define what it means amid new spaces. Another lifestyle writer this week reflects on taking number theory as a humanities major. Finally, our crossword will leave you feeling lucky for St. Patrick’s Day this weekend.

Next time you see me, I’ll be a new person. I’m not quite sure what new persona I will embody once I get my glasses; maybe the new frames will allow me to see the world in a new light, or allow me to focus on what’s really important (or maybe, just let me see the board during lecture). But one thing is certain: the first thing I’ll do once I get my glasses is pull out a copy of post-.


Lookin’ sharp,
