    Good evening. This is the 6th time I have written to you in a Weekly Update, where so many decisions have been announced that shaped the history of this JCR. Each time I have done so to discuss with you some matter that I believe affected the JCR's interest.

    In all the decisions I have made in my public life, I have always tried to do what was best for the JCR. Throughout the long and difficult last three days, I have felt it was my duty to persevere, to make every possible effort to ensure the continuation of tonight's GM.

Looking for a hot new valentine’s watch? Well, I predict this rec will be your OTP…

‘The Barbie Diaries’ (2006) may seem like an obscure blast from the past, but as an aficionado of the BCU , and a venerated person of taste, I argue that this dark horse should be bumped to the top of anyone’s ‘Netflix and Chill’ watch list this valentines. With a crisp average rating of 3.2/5 stars on Letterboxd, the public clearly agrees.

Dear friends and family of Laurie,

We gather here today to pay our respects to a man who lived a life filled with joy, passion, and love. Laurie was a beloved figure in our community, known for his unwavering spirit and his love for running the Lindsay Bar.

Attention Patrons of the Lindsay Bar:

In order to maintain a safe and secure environment for our patrons, it is of utmost importance to address the issue of appropriate footwear. It has been observed that the usage of inappropriate footwear, particularly those with low coefficient of friction, can result in slip and fall incidents.

1. Nobody comes across anything interesting worth sharing.

2. Wise men should speak when they have something to say; not for the sake of saying something.

7. Low literacy (and numeracy :)) rates in college probably hinder the reach of them.

10. People could just be drugging their brain by scrolling through Instagram.

13. Every email sent to the JCR has a carbon footprint approximately equal to a 2hr car journey.

19. No one cares about silly lists of random numbers.

23. Serious contributions are seriously lacking.
