4E Rumors

4erumors

The 4E staff is probably the most eclectic group of individuals on the Georgetown campus. To be honest, I doubt I would be friends with the other bloggers without our common interest of sharing pointless news. Thankfully we are all friends, and we all work so well together, #blessed.

As we are all slightly insane and incredibly amusing, there are naturally a ton of rumors going around about us. Which are kinda true and which are completely true? You be the judge.

That can’t be true… or can it?

4E 4Ever

Meet the New Bloggers!

New BloggiesThis week, 4E added eight talented bloggers to our staff. We had a blast meeting and interviewing our newest writers, and now it’s time for you to meet them, too:

AlexisAlexis Oni-Eseleh (COL ’16)

Top Five Sassiest Ways to End an Argument:

1. “GURRRL BYE.” Commit to the “URRRL” in “GURRRL” or it’s pointless.

2. “OVER IT.” Subsequently strut out of the room to “Diva” by Beyoncé.

3. “UNSUBSCRIBE.” Must be used on someone who is social media savvy.

4. Invest in a magic smoke clouds for swift, unexpected exits.

5. Play Miley Cyrus’s 2013 VMA Performance. That will shut anyone up.

If you could invent anything for only Georgetown students, what would it be and why?

If I could invent one thing for Georgetown students to use, it would most likely be some kind of contraption to make the numerous amounts of stairs and hills on our campus less daunting to climb. Don’t get me wrong, I love our position on top of the hill, but when my backpack is heavier than I am and I have to walk up the hill from Leo’s to Lau, I would probably do anything for some king of ski-lift-like device to make the hike less painful. It could work just like any other ski-lift, and it would provide an awesome view of the river and surrounding areas on the way. Not to mention that it would also make our campus much more handicap-friendly!

CharlieCharlie Wathieu (COL ’17)

If you could invent anything for only Georgetown students, what would it be and why?

1. I would invent a zip-line from the top of Village A across the Potomac to Virginia. Awesome (but useless).

 2. I’d also invent a zip-line from the top of the clock tower of Healy to Five Guys on Wisconsin (for the nights you can’t quite make it).

–––

DJD.J. Angelini (MSB ’17)

The Top Five Ways to Procrastinate on That Essay for One More Hour:

1. Learn how to wall twerk from YouTube tutorials that look like they were filmed using a Nokia phone from the early ’90s.

2. Peruse the Internet for in-depth cinematic reviews of the Beyoncé visual album (and possibly write your own?).

3. Walk to Five Guys at 3 a.m. (or take Charlie’s zip-line) to reward yourself for opening up a Word document, writing your name and saving the progress.

4. Live tweet a dramatic episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

5. Go to Yates with the intent to work out but really sit and stare in envy at the people who were bold enough to play ping-pong instead.

(All have been personally tested and have been deemed completely effective.)

Top Five Reasons Everyone Should Drink Juice

1. The variety is insane. Yeah, you can have five or six kinds of Coke but there are at least eight different flavors of Juicy Juice alone! And they don’t even have cran-raspberry!

2. You can drink it and feel like you’re being healthy … just don’t read the nutrition facts.

3. It’s a great chaser/mixer/hangover-helper/cure to everyone’s problems.

4. Buster Bluth loves it. #offthehook

5. Chance The Rapper devoted a whole song to it! Wait … that’s not what “Juice” is about? Never mind.

KyleKyle Murphy (COL ’17)

What’s an adventure that you’ve been on recently?

This one time, at band camp, we weren’t supposed to have pillow fights, but we had a pillow fight, and it was so much fun. And this one time, we all lost our music, and we were supposed to play this song, but we didn’t know it, so we just made it up and we kept playing and playing, and the conductor didn’t know what we were doing, and it was so funny.

–––

LupitaLupita Humbert (COL ’17)

If you could invent anything for only Georgetown students, what would it be and why?

I would invent an invisibility cloak. In Harry Potter language, “an invisibility cloak is a magical garment which renders whatever it covers unseeable. They may be made from hair of Demiguise, a magical creature that possesses the power to become invisible. This property is used to make the wearer of the cloak invisible.”

And why an invisibility cloak? Well, for five main reasons:

1. To enter Gaston Hall undetected when Warren Buffet, Hilary Clinton or Laura Bush are going to give a speech, without having to get in line before 5 a.m.

2. To explore the sinister underground tunnels where secret societies are said to gather, without being caught by anyone who could get you into trouble.

3. To have a free-from-ID pass to enter Tombs on any given Tuesday for Trivia Night if you are not yet 21.

4. To be able to take 20 or more cookies from Leo’s without being yelled at by the lady in the dining hall entrance.

5. To enter any building, especially our beautiful Lau, without having to swipe the GoCard that I probably left in my dorm that day or lost the previous night.

Top Five Ways to Stick to Your Workout Plan

1. Get the Netflix app on your phone. Go on the elliptical or walk on the treadmill while watching your favorite shows. You might still be watching TV, but at least you’re moving around. Self conscious about watching Netflix at Yates? Go to the back by the mats for some privacy, and watch those cute boys lift weights while you’re at it.

2. Buy yourself some new workout paraphernalia; you’ll need to use it in order to justify your purchase.

3. Find your most athletic friend and tell them you want to go on a run together. They’ll bug you about it until you cave. Bonus points: Hit up Sweetgreen on the way back for a post-workout meal.

4. Get a Yates class pass. There are some awesome classes out there for every fitness level. Relax with some yoga or go hard in spinning – it’ll be worth it in the end.

5. Go on Pintrest and find a motivational quote. Put it on your door and eventually you’ll guilt yourself into putting on those sneakers.

ONLY 1 DAY LEFT TO APPLY FOR 4E!

One day more 2Hold the phone, it is Monday? Gasp! That means you only have ONE more day to apply to 4E.

tumblr_lblsalFFyU1qbb7dio1_500Do not fear: There is still time!

Since we know that every Georgetown student dreams of being part of our team, we are providing you with just another friendly reminder.

dwp

(You’re so right, Meryl.)

So… Do it.

Now.

Please.

WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS POST AND NOT APPLYING?

This is not a drill; you literally only have one more day. And how sad would it be if you missed that deadline?

Love-and-Other-Drugs
Answer: This sad.

Still not convinced? Here are some things that you wouldn’t be able to do if you did not join 4E:

1. You would not be able to hang out, brainstorm and write with the most amazing people on the planet.

2. You would not be able to use gifs uncontrollably (actually you probably could but it is not the same).

3. You would not get to be Internet famous … because essentially, that’s what we are: FAMOUS.

4. You would not get to talk about Miley, 24/7. (Again, you probably could, but you secretly want to be doing it with us.)

5. You would not get to post about 4E crazily on social media. (Once again, you still can, and we actually encourage it, but it might be a little weird to other people.)

You still haven’t applied to the 4E?

You Seek, We Write: The Hilarious Search Terms That Lead to 4E

Search TermsWell, hello there 4E readers. We here at the blog would like to think that our incredibly informative and entertaining pieces fill the voids of readers desperately searching for a way to brighten their day. Believe it or not, there are many ways Fourth Edition readers come across the quirky abode that is our website. Some viewers come from The Hoya website. Others arrive through our Facebook promotions, and quite a lot arrive from search engines.

Now, you might be wondering, what do you have to type into a search engine to end up on 4E? Well, thanks to our site statistics, we’ve tracked it and figured it out. And for your reading pleasure, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite searches that landed Google users on the pages of our blog. So next time you are soul searching on the World Wide Web, try typing in one of these stellar search phrases so you can see the best of what we have to offer. (Or just bookmark our site and go there.)

Georgetown-Burnetts-1“How to drink hot cinnamon flavored vodka”

As with many things life, questions cannot be simply boiled down to the why. They must also include the how, and we at 4E are here to guide you through those difficult decisions by providing a vast array of choices and advice that will hopefully lead you to answer to that question. Our variety of articles including how-tos, different drinking games (many of which are themed) and recipes will help every Hoya spice up a social gathering.

Wait a second, did someone say spice up? That’s right, this search phrase featured none other than then the highly contested, frequently talked about, hot cinnamon flavored vodka! Never forget that Hoyas help Hoyas when venturing into new territory, so we are always here to help.

“Surprised Patrick”

Some things are better seen than heard. Surprised Patrick’s face expresses feelings a Hoya can experience several times throughout the day. Like when there are no treadmills free at Yates, the pasta line is non-existent or the Internet is working in a dorm room.

“Calories in Thomas Sweet ice cream”

At 4E, we like ice cream, too! But to be honest, we don’t know the answer to this one and we actually don’t want to. Here’s a link to the Thomas Sweet website, though, just in case you dare to find out.

tumblr_mt60vbyJfw1s8shk6o1_400“Honey Boo Boo”

Perhaps the greatest thing about Honey Boo Boo (and clan), is that she is never too shy to say what she is really thinking and never too humble to declare her accomplishments loud and proud. Whenever you are having a bad day, turn to Honey Boo Boo and 4E and remember that if we both exist and everyone is still smiling, you can make it through, too.

“Are you supposed to say your name in a card for your Secret Santa”

With any holiday season comes gifts, often in the form of fun games involving secrecy. Hoyas have asked us for sage advice to the question, “Are you supposed to say our name in a card for Secret Santa?” Well, we have consulted significantly on this issue and ruled that secret is secret only if it is secret. Therefore, a resounding yes. But keep it a secret.

“Georgetown rat problem”

Yes, there is a bit of a rat problem here at Georgetown. We know. But really, the infestation is all just a matter of outlook. On one hand, you can think of our rats as disgusting, foul, disease-infested vermin. Or, on the other hand, you can think of them as just another friendly, diverse addition to the Hilltop community who happen to appear at night. Like armadillos. And who doesn’t love armadillos?

As you can see, those who stumble upon the Fourth Edition have quite the array of Internet searches. Some are looking for answers to practical questions. Some need a sympathetic story or a light-hearted laugh. Whatever the reason, 4E is always here for you in your time of need. Keep reading and keep asking the most of us, Hoyas!

The 5 People You Met at the Student Activities Fair

SAC FairEarlier today, Leo’s was bombarded by overeager Hoyas and thousands of quarter-sized flyers. You guessed it, it was our favorite event of the year: the Student Activities Fair. We here at 4E made sure to keep our eyes open and make a list of those Student Activities Fair stereotypes that we all know and maybe love. Here are are the 5 people you met at the Student Activities Fair today:

1. The Overachiever Beaver We all know this person, the one who went to every table and signed up for every club. While we applaud you for trying, there is a point where that got a little out of hand. At least you will always have enough random cups to satisfy all your needs.

tumblr_inline_mlfsg1JFAI1r79k322. The Not-So-Coherent Participants Waking up and attending the Student Activities Fair was not their cup of tea this morning. Despite the obstacles, these people did get themselves there … in whatever shape they may have been in. While they might have been dying on the inside, they were still forcing you to sign up for their shockingly specific club.

3. The Student Activities Fair Cheaters These are the people that drive me up the wall. They come to the Student Activities Fair every year, walk around and steal all the free stuff. These people do not even try to pretend to be interested in what you are saying. Who do they think they are? ‘Cause we all know that the best part about Student Activities Fair is being able to keep all the leftover goodies (aka the candy). But no. The Cheaters ate it all.

4. The Relentless Flier-ers. No matter your reason for going to the Student Activities Fair, it is literally impossible to get out of Leo’s without at least one flier. The flier-ers attacked you and didn’t let you leave. (Full disclosure: One of those flier-ers was probably someone on The Hoya. Sorry not sorry.) 

Pitch Perfect 75. You! Whether you were there to find a new hobby (cough, cough, remember to apply to the blog by January 17th) or just for the free stuff, the Student Activities Fair is a great time to realize all the ways you can get involved on the Hilltop! I hope you all had fun and took advantage of the people watching. It’s always the best part.

Happy Birthday to Us!!

Screen Shot 2013-01-19 at 4.31.38 PMOn this day, exactly one year ago, The Fourth Edition launched its very first post. Since then, we have posted over 300 articles and gathered just short of 100,000 views. We have covered material from the missing clock hands to the various waysto enjoy Nutella. This blog is the only one of its kind to have survived this long in The Hoya, and we would just like to take the time to thank you, our readers, for your loyalty. You are the ones who got us to this monumental day! We’d also like to thank the mama of this baby blog, Michelle Cassidy. She has been the beautiful guiding light for this blog as it took its first steps and the monumental stages of its development. We here at The Fourth Edition praise Mama Cassidy for all of her hard work and wish the blog another year of fun!
