Ignite! TEDxGeorgetown 2018

TEDxGeorgetown is this Saturday, Oct. 27, in Gaston Hall. The theme of this year’s conference is “Ignite.”

So, why is the theme “Ignite,” you may ask?

Is it because the great Katy Perry once said: “You just gotta ignite the light / And let it shine / Just own the night / Like the Fourth of July”?

Nope.

Is it because igniTED is a trusTED pun?

Absolutely not.

Well, if you guessed that it was because Saint Ignatius told the Jesuits “to go and set the world on fire,” and many incredible movements have been doing just that this past year, then you have just aced this impromptu midterm.

The conference this year will feature 10 students speakers, as well as one professor, Georgetown’s own Imam, an alum and a CEO. Each speaker will be sharing their story of how they are igniting change around them.

All you need to do to hear these wonderful stories and support your classmates is to fill out this form and come to Gaston Hall on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. with your GOCard. The event is free for Georgetown students.

I hope this post has igniTED your interest in TEDxGeorgetown.

Flawless? Your Saturday Morning Story

beyoncc3a9-flawless-2We’ve all been there. After an aggressively long week of midterms, papers and presentations we were just a little too jazzed about the weekend. In truth, we were very jazzed. So we indulged a little (a lot!) in whatever it is that we do to bring in the weekend. It’s not our fault. We’re only human.

Since Beyoncé’s new song “***Flawless” has brought the phrase “I woke up like this” into recent prominence, 4E decided to juxtapose our various Friday aftermath narratives and Saturday morning predicaments to the tune of “***Flawless.” Watch the video below so you’ll be able to put a beat to your Saturday morning Leo’s brunch shame. How did you wake up this Saturday?

Where am I?

I woke up like this.

Uh… Pants, where you at?

I woke up like this.

Attack of the Bedhead: The Sequel

I woke up like this.

When did I fall asleep? Oh, wait. I didn’t.

I woke up like this.

Yep, still drunk.

I woke up like this.

Netflixed so hard that you forgot how to blink.

I woke up like this.

After a full eight hours of sleep.

I woke up like this.

The never fun: I just got GERMSed.

I woke up like this.

***Flawless? I think not, Hoyas.
