There's only a few more days of winter break left before classes start, so enjoy some perfect movie and TV show recommendations for every (Harvard-related) mood. From Gilmore Girls to The Social Network, hear characters drop the H-bomb and see the fake campuses that producers came up with to make you feel a little closer to everyone's favorite small liberal arts school outside of Boston.
Jingle bells, I can’t smell, I have to wash my hands… Remember when we all thought life would be back to normal by now? What a time. But with the holidays creeping around the corner, it’s time to get into the festive mood and find some time to unwind. Although we may not be on Harvard’s campus together, there are still plenty of ways to stay connected (unless your Wi-Fi drops) during this jolly season!
It’s that time of the year again! We’re deep into the season treasured more than any other by the overachieving high schoolers eventually accepted to the hype Harvard institution. College admission season is upon us, and this year it’s going to be wilder than ever. But imagine, Harvard doesn’t exist, and it never has. All of us currently attending Forbes’s number one school in the world definitely would have ended up at some other Ivy League establishment.
The smell of gingerbread is in the air and Bublé is crooning in the distance. You’re not sure whether the joy you feel is from it being the most wonderful time of the year or because 2020 is finally coming to an end. There’s just one problem: how to find that perfect thoughtful gift for your loved ones. While Mariah is right, we figured your gift recipients might want just a little bit more than you. With an eye for creative and heartwarming treats, Flyby has compiled the ultimate 2020 Holiday Gift guide just for you!
‘Tis the season for... reading period! This year, reading period looks quite a bit different in more ways than one. I mean, who doesn't dream of studying for final exams in their childhood bedroom as they're being stared down by the five-foot horse poster that's been living on the wall ever since their horse girl phase in 2010? That's right, nobody. In any case, my motivation levels are all over the place, so hopefully you relate to this desperate cry into the void too.
This reading period, you may have fewer (as in, zero) formals and gatherings to attend, so what should you do with the extra few hours? Make your life a little sweeter by eating delicious goodies. Rather than simply scrolling through Pinterest and saving photos of aesthetic holiday desserts, go out and actually enjoy a few treats from this list. This semester may not have been a piece of cake, but you certainly deserve one for making it to the end.
Candles are pretty cool. They gift the ever-questionably smelling dorm room with immaculate fragrance, they create the perfect ambiance for college activities that demand suboptimal lighting (wink, wink), and they add another lovely level of pretentiousness to the already very pretentious Harvard institution. At least, that’s how we would think of them if they were allowed in our rooms. Imagine that you could keep a candle without fear of fire, and consider that it's nearly time for turkeys and Santa to start showing up. Keep reading to find out what winter-scented Yankee candle would really spice up your transformative Harvard experience this holiday season.
If you’re a freshman like me who came to campus for a few short weeks, you’re probably now at home, far away from the friends that you just made. With mingled anxiety and uncertainty about blocking groups and plans for next semester, you’re probably wondering how you can stay in touch with your now long-distance friends. I might not be able to tell you exactly how to do that, but I can definitely tell you one thing that you should absolutely not do. Whatever you do, do NOT download the Psych! app, schedule a time to Zoom or FaceTime with your friends, and play “The Truth Comes Out.” Please. If you want to keep your friends, just don’t do it.
It's reading period, otherwise known as the period of time you spend realizing that maybe, just maybe, you shouldn't have muted those Tuesday morning lectures. Before the semester slips through your fingers, see whether you can start reading period off with a Flyby-bingo-style win.
