It’s a Friday night- what are you up to?  Watching Netflix and eating Nutella with a spoon in bed?  Or is that just me…

I didn’t think so!

 

This Friday, FAB is sponsoring an event- Hunger Over Nutella Games II- and you should all be there.  Let’s be real- we all do this in the privacy of our dorm rooms, so we might as well be a bit more social and do it with our friends.  It will be hosted at 7:30pm on HCA green this Friday, 4/25.  There will be a full Nutella bar with fresh fruit, crackers, and breads to wipe our fave condiment on, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be shown.

 

Be there, or have an empty stomach and not learn how to survive the impending apocalypse and/or dramatic political crisis that results in reverting back to ancient Grecian times and cheering while humans fight to the death in an arena.  Woo!!!

 

This Friday, 4/25. 7:30pm.  HCA green.  Nutella.  The Hunger Games.  JLaw.  JHutch.  Miley Cyrus’ Ex-Fiance.  Be there.

So, it’s not your first year here, or maybe it is, and you know everything there is to know about applying for a Customs position, right? Wrong.  The Customs Info Session is a great resource for new and past applicants!  Here is a list of the top 5 reasons you should most definitely go to the Customs Info Session (7pm-9pm, 12/8, Stokes Auditorium)!

whyH_customs_small

1. You love Customs.  And honestly, who doesn’t have at least one fond memory of their Customs experience?  Whether or not you went in the Duck Pond, were in your underwear when people barged into your room with pots, or you lost Dorm Olympics, Customs Week was a good time.

2. You don’t have a partner.  Thinking about going at it alone?  Wondering if its okay to apply alone, or still looking for the perfect partner?  Go to the info session!  Tons of people just like you may be going stag, and are still in search of the peanut butter that will complement their jelly.  Maybe you will run into friends you didn’t even know were interested!  Maybe you will meet a new friend!

3. You have never applied before.  If you have never applied before, you should go to the info session- 100%.  It will give you a really good idea of what to expect.  You can see what the application looks like, what the committees are like, and what each position entails.  Good, basic information!

4. You don’t know who the Co-Heads and committee members are.  This is a good time to meet all the committees, get a feel for what they are looking for- their vibe.  You may go into the session thinking you want to apply to be an HCO, and come out thinking CP is perfect for you.  A lot of it depends on who you are, what the committee is looking for, and what position you would excel at.  These things can all be unveiled at the info session!

5. You want to be selected. Though I can’t say attending the info session is a make or break situation, I can definitely say that it will help your chances of getting selected.  The info session allows you to see who is on the committees and what they are expecting, what position you are best suited for, what the application looks like, and just get more face time with the people who will actually be selecting you.  Showing interest is always a good thing (a tip I am constantly told, as a near graduate in search of a job!), and this definitely applies here.  At the session, you can express your interest, ask questions, and get to know the people who will be evaluating your application.  The more they know about you and who you are (and why you would be good at whatever positions you choose), the better chance you will have at being selected.

So, there you go.  Listed are some, in my humble opinion, rock-solid reasons why you should attend the Customs Info Session.

BUT WAIT, THERE IS MORE.  This year, there will be a mixer after the info session- the perfect opportunity for you to get to the committees, other applicants, etc.  Even better!!!

GO!  7Pm-9PM, Stokes Auditorium, this Sunday- Dec. 8th!

Love the stir-fry station?  I know, who doesn’t.  Here is a way to make stir-fry-equivalent goodness without the wait, and at any meal you want (minus breakfast, but let’s not be weird)!

Screen shot 2013-10-07 at 1.22.47 PM

Step 1: Get a bowl.  This the most difficult step, but I believe in you.

Step 2: Grab your ingredients from the salad bar, and put that goodness into the bowl you worked so hard to get.  This is the really fun part- you can choose whatever ingredients you want. Chicken, veggies, whatever!  I usually do a combo of chicken, broccoli, onions, edamame, and mushrooms, but you do you.  Vegetarian?  Works great with tofu too!

Step 3: Get another bowl. You can do it.

Step 4: Get a plate.  This might seems a little dish-crazy, but trust me.

Step 5: Put some sauces and spices on your assortment of ingredients.  I usually use a combo of soy sauce/lemon and pepper/garlic/whatever suits my mood, but again, you do you.  Get some hot sauce in there if you can handle the heat (I can’t).

Step 6: Now this step takes some skill.  You have to mix the ingredients and sauces together.  This takes a set of skilled hands, so don’t worry if you make a mistake.  Maybe put on an apron if you are nervous.  Ok, so you need to put the second bowl on top of the first bowl, and shake.  Just shake it up and down.  Do it over the plate in case sauce spills out.  If you are feeling risky, flip it upside down and shake it more.  I would recommend this for getting your sauces/spices evenly distributed.

Step 7: Put this pre-masterpiece into the massive panini-style grill.  Leave it in there for 3-5 minutes depending on how crispy you want it to be.

Step 8: Enjoy! You are a DC chef!

Welcome back to the 2nd edition of really awesome things to do in Philly!

This time, I will be discussing my personal favorite meal: brunch.

cafe-dalsace-brunch-nyc

Everyone loves brunch.  There is so much to do: eat, drink, be merry, and gossip with your friends. We at Haverford are lucky enough to get brunch on Sundays at the DC, but what about that insatiable Saturday midday hunger that can be only be stifled with fluffy pancakes, unlimited OJ, and fresh berries?  We have the wide, wonderful world of Philly to feed us.

And dudes out there- you may think brunch is a ladies thing, but don’t be fooled.  I went to brunch on Saturday, and there was a group of the bro-iest looking bros dining on some bacon and eggs.  Brunch is a genderless meal for us all to enjoy.

So, without further ad0, here is a quick guide to your go-to brunch spots in Philly:
