Off the Cuff — Quick takes on life from our Editors

I don’t care what anyone says, you are still my favorite.
—KatyShakespeare, Hamlet, Act II Scene II
I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space.
Jens and Groff back in town, the Serpentine, bonfire, fireworks, Corner Club and even some Vandal football. Best time of the year.
If I walk past you with my headphones blaring Tupac, chances are I don’t want your complimentary New Testament. No disrespect, but I do it for a reason.
Rock the vote
Just decided that my presidential vote will be a write-in for Karl Benson. The future of the country will be so bright we’ll have to wear shades.
I had to make the decision to put my best friend Karma down this week. It was the hardest decision I’ve made yet. RIP Karma doodle.
With two servings inspiration a lá Gloria Steinem, equal parts roller derby in Walla Walla and birthday celebrations, and a dash of Vandal pride, this year’s Homecoming week couldn’t be better.
Recipe for disaster
Sleepy-time tea, NyQuil, fuzzy socks and an extensive to-do list.
It’s all about perspective
If you wake up telling yourself it’s going to be a good day, it will, in fact, be a good day. You control how good or bad your day is, so here’s to the rest of the year and months of fabulous days.
In the Dome
Listening to “Freeze Frame” instantly transports me to a crowded Kibbie Dome with the overwhelming smell of stadium popcorn filling my nostrils. Go Vandals.
Got the goods
Maybe I’m just materialistic, but getting new photography gear seems to brighten my day. My new stripbox covered in colored cellophane has already been used as a vital part in a shoot.
Gluttony is heaven
In less than a week, I ate a whole tin of my mom’s homemade pumpkin bars and a whole box of her cranberry oatmeal cookies.
I’m excited to be reunited with my alumni friends at Homecoming this weekend. Should you need to contact me, I’ll be in the Kibbie Dome parking lot.
