Five Weird Facebook Events For a Harvard Student

In the past few weeks, Facebook users around the country have found themselves invited to dozens of weird events. Their popularity is clearly growing as approximately 4,000 people have already said they are going (not really of course) to “lying in bed and cryin to Adele and feeling bad 4 urself” on December 31st at the time of this post. I was already invited to “turn into the mitochondria and become the powerhouse of the cell” earlier this week. The trend has only gained strength as we head into reading period a nd finals. To aid in your procrastination efforts, here are some Harvard Facebook events that Harvard students could attend.

A Review of El Jefe's Taqueria

Pushed on by my need for vaguely Mexican-inspired food plus a habit of visiting Felipe’s too often, I decided to venture where few Harvard students had done so far… I went to El Jefe’s Taqueria.

Halloween at Harvard: Best Costumes on Campus

Harvard students are known for being creative. Sure, they can craft resumes that resemble works of art, write Pulitzer-worthy papers on books they've never read, and spin epic tales about their accomplishments during job interviews at McKinsey. But how creative are they on the one holiday where it really matters the most: Halloween? To solve this great mystery, on Friday Flyby scoped out the costume scene on campus to bring you some of the most creative, the most weird and the most Harvard relevant costumes of the crop.

What Should You Be Watching on TV This Fall?

All Harvard students need a TV show or two to binge watch. Remember -- it is sometimes important to avoid responsibilities and take a mental vacation. Here are 6 shows you should be watching:

Flyby Follow-up: [BLANK] Party

Last week, Flyby reported about the upcoming [BLANK] Party, an event hosted by a group of women on campus looking to encourage inclusivity in Harvard’s social scene. Flyby, being the intrepid reporters we are, trekked through the rain to the Science Center Plaza last night to check it out. In case you weren’t as down to brave the elements (read: drizzle) as we were, here’s a quick recap of what you missed.

A Letter to Harvard Compliments

In a world where the most beloved Clover is closing and there is a weird absence of swai, there is a facebook page that can bring back joy into a Harvard student’s life. Well at least a little. That hero is you, Harvard Compliments. So when I saw that you requested me out of the blue, I have to say I shocked and immediately pleased.

That Time HUDS Fed Me Lobster

​As I sit in the Adams dining hall, I weep uncontrollably. No, not because the bananas are greener than the grass in the Yard is, nor is it because the toasters don’t actually toast my bagels. No, all these things pale in comparison to my true, inner moral quandary.

Orange is the New...Bland?

Expectations for this summer were high, but a lackluster season with a hard-to-get-through first few episodes has been enough to send some Harvard fans back into the depths of their dismal Cambridge winter selves (read: us).

How to Waste Away Your Snow Day

After three snow days in less than three weeks, Harvard students are experts. And at this point, it seems like the university has given up on the “we’re exceptional enough to go hold class during a blizzard” attitude it had for most of its history, so who knows how many more snow days we’ll have this year? That being said, it’s still important to make the most of every precious day off. Here are some of our favorite ways:

New Year's Resolutions: Expectations vs. Reality

To avoid the crushing disappointment you’ll experience when you inevitably break those highly unrealistic goals two weeks into the semester, we’ve compiled a list of your resolutions, along with the ways that they’re doomed to play out.
