Spoiler alert: the best year of your life is almost over and it’s all downhill from here. Literally: your flat will probably be down in the inner sanctum of Aro Valley. So while you’re busy being robbed every other Tuesday, here are some words of advice for you, as we reflect on our second year […]

This week it’s just Luke at the keys. So to those of you who wait outside Vic House with fiery torches and sharp pointy things, just waiting for us to pass by, we can leave Tom out of it. For a young English boy moving halfway across the world to a foreign country, the New […]

This week is the opinion issue. But for us at the Moan Zone, every week is the opinion issue. Our flat is indisputably the closest thing to a frat house in Wellington and its inhabitants could easily be close relatives of the Stifflers. This has resulted in a slightly two-dimensional literary contribution this past year […]

It’s time to take a break from the hilarious new Snapchat update to help a brother in need, because let’s face it—girls actually think about other stuff besides whether or not that one person likes them.

If there’s one thing I like better than receiving a grade for my work, it’s working twice as hard and having that grade diluted by three parts. Welcome to group assignments; buddy up and let’s begin. We’ve learnt a lot from completing group assignments at uni. 5% the material, 5% how to work productively in […]

Dear friend, Firstly we would like to thank you for taking the plunge into the world of literary excellence by contributing to the magnificent Salient. After all, the Letters section is the only thing after the Moan Zone that people enjoy reading. As second-year students—and thus vastly more experienced, cultured and attractive than you—we thought […]

We’re all back in the capital, although I don’t know if you can call those ten days off a “break”. We were eager to get home and have a well-deserved hiatus after all the work that uni threw at us for the past couple of months. However, ten days off was barely enough time to […]
