Somerville with Townie Tim: Apartment Hunting

It’s that time of the year again to look around your living room and decide if you want to give it another year with these clowns. I know the schedule for hunting for apartments can undulate depending on where you live, and I have heard of students searching as much as a year in advance. […]

Making my (Den)mark: April Break

I just spent the past several days exploring Greece, both Athens and Santorini.

And like Tufts’ spring […]

Lisztomania: Globalization

As an aggressively Eurocentric American, I am aware that I have neglected a great part of the world in my musical analyses over these past several weeks.

Making my (Den)mark: The final month

Overall, this past week has been high quality: I went to my visiting host mom’s school with her (she’s a fifth-grade teacher), and I went with my cousin and her parents to the Danish Royal Ballet.
