PARTING SHOT: Have FOMO over the right things

(05/15/19 2:59pm)

Over my four years at the University, it has become a running joke between my friends and me that I most definitely do not have “FOMO” or “fear of missing out.” On the contrary, I have the unique ability to miss home football games, big parties, catered tailgates, concerts, fall break trips, and — dare I say it? — even basketball games without batting an eyelash. to offer bus rides from Charlottesville to Dulles Airport

Repairing damaged tissue is a process the body automatically undergoes as needed.

Cinematic universes and long, serialized epics are the norm in modern pop culture. In the past month, the blockbuster Marvel Cinematic Universe reached a milestone of 22 serially plotted movies with “Avengers: Endgame” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is currently airing its final season after an eight year run. The big screen and small screen alike seem to require more viewer investment and passion than ever before, banking on mega franchises that have become iconic in fandom and even the mainstream.

Whether you’ve just packed up your first-year dorm or you’re about to wear the honor of honors and toss your graduation cap into the air, saying goodbye is never easy. It’s even harder when you’ve just finished a soul-crushing final exam period and are sitting in your parents’ car on the drive home, emotionally drained and exhausted with no capacity to feel anything except relief that you’re finally done. How could you possibly summon the strength to say goodbye? It’s simple — listen to these songs that will make you regret all those times you wished the school year was over.

PARTING SHOT: A cycle of mentorship

(05/10/19 7:30pm)

Roughly two weeks into my first year at the University, I failed to quit my journalism addiction and applied to work as a writer for The Cavalier Daily’s sports section. The application consisted of writing two stories: 1) A preview of Virginia football’s 2012 matchup against Georgia Tech, a game that followed-up the Cavaliers’ victorious effort over Penn State due to a game-winning catch by Jake McGee; and 2) a feature on any aspect of the Virginia football team. For the latter, I wrote about — you guessed it — McGee.

PARTING SHOT: The indispensable nature of student journalism

(05/16/19 8:19pm)

Two summers ago, I found myself choking on chemical irritants and struggled to breathe. I took in the scenes around me: heavily-armed militias patrolling the streets, newspaper boxes tipped over, a man who looked like he had been pepper-sprayed, helicopters buzzing overhead, people fighting in the streets and police standing by, declining to intervene. White supremacist groups had invaded Charlottesville and provoked violence and counter-protests, and our city soon became a hashtag. Alongside a team of Alexis Gravely, Anna Higgins and Daniel Hoerauf, I was reporting from the middle of the chaos for The Cavalier Daily. 

HESS: Elizabeth Warren is the progressive the nation needs

(05/21/19 1:50pm)

Biden, Bernie, Beto, Buttigieg — the four names that are constantly being thrown around the news channels. The current news cycle would lead one to believe that these are the only four viable candidates, but they are failing to give enough attention to the only candidate who is actually presenting a future for all Americans through specific policy proposals — Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) . Warren is one of the most progressive candidates in the field, with a long history to support her claims. Even with such critical and negative press, she is still making her case for why she should receive the nomination — and we should believe in her.
