A Note to Prospees

April 17, 2014 | As Cal Day came to a close last weekend, thousands of high school seniors faced one question: how about Cal? And if your sibling, friend, neighbor, schoolmate, or aunt’s coworker’s hairdresser’s kid was one of them, odds are someone asked you that question as well. For me, this is a hard question Read More

An Ode to Cal

April 16, 2014 | There is something very strange about how time works in college. I simultaneously feel as if I have been in Berkeley for just two short minutes and as if I have been here for my entire life. I can’t imagine a life without Berkeley, and yet with Cal Day now behind us, I can truly reflect on the experiences Read More

Janelle Monae is Q.U.E.E.N.

April 16, 2014 | In recent weeks, Janelle Monae’s cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes” for Pepsi’s Futbol Campaign has been a hot topic across most popular social media platforms. Her voice is clear and powerful, and the old-school retro vibe was maintained beautifully in her rendition. Listen to it here. I’ve Read More

All Hail Kale (And Other Trending Foods)

April 14, 2014 | Until my roommate began filling our fridge with bags of kale, I was under the impression that the leafy greens were only weeds mistakenly thought to be lettuce. But it turns out they're part of a larger movement, the mainstreaming of the health foods initiative that has food aficionados predicting that Read More

Hot Sex on a Hot Day

April 13, 2014 | By now you've probably noticed that the weather in Berkeley has taken a turn for the beautiful. The sun is shining, scandy summer clothes are surfacing, and somewhere, Beyonce is filling up her tub halfway and riding with her surfboard. This hot weather is pretty damn sexy, but many of us would like Read More

A Throwback to Freshman Year

April 12, 2014 | With only about a month of school left in the year, many of my senior friends have been expressing their mixed feelings about graduating. The shared sentiment is an eagerness to graduate and move onto the next stage of their lives, mixed with panic at the thought of leaving Cal. As a sophomore, I cannot Read More

If You’re Hopeless, Down, and Out… Go See Urinetown: The Musical

April 11, 2014 | The second installment of BareStage's Spring 2014 semester, Urinetown, won't necessarily cheer you up, but it'll certainly make you laugh. Set in a dystopian, possibly-South American region, the Off-Broadway musical traverses modern themes of capitalism, freedom, and sustainability. It dabbles in love Read More

Delta Rae in San Francisco: A Breathtaking Experience

April 10, 2014 | The week back from break is always the hardest to get through. That is, having to snap back into reality can be a rather undesirable task. I, for one, always go through this process, and I never seem to get better at it. However, last week, I decided to make the adjustment a bit more tolerable by taking Read More

Chem 1A: A Love Story

April 10, 2014 | I’m a romantic. I can’t help it - I fall in love quickly and frequently. It only took me about 20 pages to fall head over heels for Cedric Diggory, and that was when I was eight - before Hollywood had manifested him in the form of Robert Pattinson. It’s not just with boys, either. Since coming Read More

The Nice Guy: Where We All Go Wrong

April 9, 2014 | “I don’t believe this! Now we’re dumping guys for being too available!” Charlotte York proclaimed during the third season of Sex and the City. Carrie does not end up dumping the guy in question, but Charlotte’s exasperated sentiment is one that I can certainly identify with. The “nice guy” Read More
