Letter from the EICs
BY JASMINE WU '22 & REBECCA ZHANG '22
After the chaos of the past two years, we leaped into summer, hoping that our senior year would bring more certainty. But then Delta variant memes infected social media.
Like the melodramatic teenagers we are, we slumped through four stages of grief—denial (COVID is gone! Everything is fine!), anger (The wall will never recover from the hand sanitizer chucked at it), bargaining (If everyone wears five masks, can we be free?), and depression (The pandemic will never end…)—before reaching the fifth: acceptance.
This year remains uncertain—but that’s okay. Here at The Spectrum, we will try to make the best of whatever comes our way. Rest assured that The Spectrum, epic icebreakers and all, will continue on, beginning with this Back-to-School (BTS) issue—our first printed issue in a year! So even if this year isn’t what we expected, we’re excited to continue giving you riveting advice in the form of BTS articles, and we look forward to working with y’all this year.
To be or not be; to school or not to school; to join us or… just kidding, you don’t have a choice. :)
