VUWSA

September 17, 2018

A battle has been raging in the VUWSA office all year. It’s lost me friends, matches on Tinder, and quite a bit of self-respect. But I drunkenly chose this position and now I must stick by my decision for the rest of my life. I’m putting it out there: Going straight to doggy style is […]

It’s been a busy, busy week in the VUWSA office as we prepare for the big rally on Wednesday! We want to foster a community where, when someone asks “chur bro, all good?”, you don’t have to lie. But it’s easier said than done, so I asked your friendly VUWSA exec how they’re feeling and […]

Last week Ella and I went to attend a talk by the Irish Honorary Consul-General, Niamh McMahon, about Ireland’s experience with abortion reform.

Disclaimer: This is the very first time I am discussing my sexuality in public so please bear with me. One of my brother’s favourite shows to watch on Netflix is Queer Eye. One night as I got home quite late, I caught him watching the Season 2 finale, the one where the Fab 5’s “client” […]

It’s finally women’s week — our designated time to acknowledge the value of women in our community. While we still have a way to go till we can walk home at night without keys jammed between our knuckles, it is important to celebrate how far we have come. We should celebrate the women that fought […]

Opinions are like regrets. Everyone has one, some are well founded, while others are kept hidden deep away. It’s super easy to be dismissive of other people’s opinions when you don’t agree, and with that said, here are some of my bullshit opinions. Rollercoasters are scary as fuck. I dislike bees but I appreciate the hustle. […]

Reduce, reuse, recycle! From primary school the 3Rs were drilled into our brains in an effort to make us more sustainable. But what if I told you there’s another R we can add to the list? That’s right — refuse. Refusing to consume unsustainable goods is a simple yet powerful tool towards an environmentally-friendly future. […]
