CULTURALLY SHOOK | On graduating and confronting a future

Writing about endings tends towards the cliché. I want to preface this by saying that it’s impossible for me to write about graduation without feeling uncomfortably self-aware of the redundancy of my feelings. Of course I’m sad that a “chapter” of my life is over. Of course I’m “excited” about “what the future holds” for me. But all that has been said before and felt before, by almost 4,000 of my fellow classmates and hundreds of thousands more across the United States and the world over.


Meet us halfway and submit a caption for this week’s cartoon! The Sun staff will vote and the winning caption — along with the winner’s name — will appear in the Monday, April 16 edition of the paper. The deadline for submission is 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 13. Drawn by Alicia Wang ’21

Congratulations to the winner of Cartoon Caption Contest #6! “Now my hand doesn’t cramp up when I’m doing problem sets,
but my tears usually make it short-circuit.”

STUDY BREAK | The Big Picture

I’m all about appreciating the small things in life. The conversations. The mental pictures. The seemingly insignificant experiences that we’ll remember forever (Can you tell I’m sentimental?). But there are other “small” things in life that I must admit get more attention than they probably should.
