So it begins. The bass drums through me as I move my body to the music, my eyes closed. Psi U is full of bodies, all moving in a haze. If I swing my hips too quickly to one side, I find myself grazing a hip, but if I miss the rhythm, a hand creeps along my side. The dance floor is a careful game, where if you are with the music, you are rewarded — by not getting body slammed. There are rules. Never open your eyes or look for too long either, but I forgot that momentarily. Beat. Eyes open. Beat. Eyes go to the front. Beat. I see you. How long has it been?

It’s been a great week to be a Michigan fan. On Sept. 14, Travis Scott posted an Instagram picture with bleached Michigan sweat shorts and Michigan Air Jordan 1s. In the following hours, every fraternity brother, international student and hype beast united in resharing this image. Almost every conversation I had in the following days referenced the image in some way. There was a palatable excitement in the air from the fact that one of the biggest stars in the world had referenced the University on his social media page.

Twitter has always been my social media drug of choice. My timeline — essentially Arab twitter, Muslim twitter and Leftist twitter, speaks to my personality and beliefs to a concerningly accurate degree. As my relationship with Twitter has adapted — what was once a 30 minute daily check-in has seamlessly transitioned into a pandemic ritual of daily two hour blocks —  I’ve come to the realization that Twitter, as well as other forms of social media, has had an engrossing, personal effect on my life, especially within the past six months.

As the summer comes to a close, and our time as Managing Editors is now complete, we would like to close off with a letter and a hope for MiC — an ode to a summer of revolution, if you will. Neither of us could have predicted what we signed up for, but we are more than proud of what we were able to accomplish.
