Love was in the air the week of Valentine’s Day. We started this week by comparing the works of Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson, tuned into Sweet Moon by Sundarta on Tuesday, ideas, took a look at what in the world was going on this Wednesday, recounted the night I met my partner, and wrapped things up with an analysis of love from a neurological perspective.

Weekly Recap

On Monday, we compared the poets Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath to gain perspective on the double-edged sword that is mental illness. We also celebrated the release of Hook Stu by XtaSeay on Beat Stars.

On Tuesday, we took a look at highlights from WCU’s Open Mic Night and tuned into Sweet Moon by Sundarta.

On Wednesday, we yet again attempted to make sense of what the hell is going on with the United States government, the controversy surrounding the 61st annual Grammy Awards, and mourned the cows lost to major flooding in Queensland, Australia.

On Thursday, we recounted the night I met my partner, XtaSeay, at our college orientation a year and a half ago.

On Saturday, we took a look at love from a neurological perspective. Thanks to the work of dopamine, oxytocin, and vasopressin, love makes you feel excited, connected, and obsessed.

Going Forward

Valentine’s Day may have passed, but it certainly isn’t over yet. Going forward, you can expect more content revolving around love, passion, and creativity. Keep an eye out for three upcoming interviews, an HTML tutorial, and the next issue of The Burgundy Zine!
