Bikini Season Preparation Guide

February 20, 2017 by

In just under a month, the students of SMU will skip town for blue oceans and warm weather. Whether you’re destination is the BVIs, St. Barts, or Cabo, one thing holds true: Bikini season is upon us. If you’re like me–and not to be dramatic–you’d rather get punched in the face than put on a swimsuit right now. However, with a month to spare, there might be hope for us yet. I’ve compiled five tips and tricks guaranteed to make you do that Kiini justice. It’s crunch time, everyone. (Pun intended. I am so sorry.) Continue Reading

I’ve compiled a 5-point synopsis of VMA need-to-knows: Continue Reading

A Night with Lorne Michaels is a Night Well Spent

March 1, 2016 by

Live from Dallas…. it’s Saturday Night! 

Not only did I wake up at 8 a.m. to buy tickets, create a member login on the Bush Center website, and refresh my computer 43 times to try to attend this event– but also was later denied a spot on the wait list. I was crushed. I did not know what to do. Lorne Michaels was coming to SMU and if I had any chance to get near the same vicinity, I was going to do whatever it takes. I contacted the editor of the Daily Campus, reached out to the executive producers of the Daily Update, and said 400 prayers in hopes of any break.

About Nati Bru

Pint-sized Cuban, born and raised in the 305. If you don't know the area code, look it up. I spend my free time arguing over which Kanye album is his greatest work and which character from Game of Thrones should be brought back from the dead. I would rather stay in from a night out on the town if there's a promising SNL host. I am most likely seen with my hair up; if it's down, I'm having a rare, good hair day. Hoping to be on a TV screen near you. Stay tuned.

My New Spirit Show

November 20, 2015 by

They’re like Friends without Chandler, Ross, and Joey, Gossip Girl minus the opulence, and The Hills with no LA skyline and beach. The Bedford Stop is on my favorites list, and sooner or later it will be on yours too.
