From #mancrushmonday to #tbt, there is no social media craze that the 4E staff haven’t tackled.

Today’s topic? Transformation Tuesday.

As the holiday season nears, people tend to pull out those adorable December pictures from years past. From what I have been seeing, the people of Instagram have changed a ton since day 1.

Well, what about our own bloggers? I went hard-core stalker mode to dig up the 411 on all your favorite writers.

First up is the one and only DJ Angelini. Look at those faces… Can you see the resemblance?

Next is former Blog Editor and Online Editor, Lindsay Lee. She has the most amazing clothes, don’t you agree?

No one does Transformation Tuesday as well as the flawlessly fabulous Alexis Oni-Eseleh.

The next transformation is former 4E Editor Emma Holland. Still the most hardworking blogger, as you can see.

Three Ways to Beat Today’s Tuesday Blues

TUesday BluesIt’s the first full week of second semester and the daunting list of readings so carefully detailed in those syllabi is already casting a gloomy shadow over your spring. We understand. With syllabus week behind us and summer oh-so-far in the distance, the beginning of the semester can feel like one long case of the Mondays. Except, worst of all, it’s really actually a rainy Tuesday. Yes, it’s January, and yes, you’re still in Add/Drop purgatory, but we can at least find some solace. Here are three reasons this semester has no where to go but up:

1. You are getting older We all just got one semester closer to seniority in preregistration, that sweet, sweet, day of validation that is the 21st birthday and for the freshmen among us, the arrival of a new class of people who are more lost and confused than you.

2. The weather is on the up & up (and so is the probability of pastels) One sunny day we will all wake up and what to our wondering eyes shall appear but a campus of colorful pants and well-structured sundresses. Better than Christmas!

3. Love (and pollen) are in the air this spring With your New Year’s resolution to hit Yates more than once a semester still in play, the spring hope springs eternal. All new classes means a fresh opportunity to turn that lab partnership extracurricular (or into the possibility of having no friends in any class and spending the semester completely alone). But let’s focus on the positives.

Chins up Hoyas, and, in the words of a great athlete/singer/musical star, “We’re all in this together.”
