Rebecca Wolff

Rebecca Wolff (Bex for short) is a junior journalism and creative writing student. She is the opinion editor for the Student and has been writing for the paper since her first month of freshman year at Miami. She’s very opinionated, which makes her a perfect fit for that section, but she has also written pieces for culture, style and entertainment. She is from the Bay Area of San Francisco and brings that California attitude with her everywhere she goes, and she has two pet llamas in her backyard which used to be a Christmas tree farm. When she’s not ranting away on her keyboard for a column, you might find her taking long walks though Oxford while listening to old music or books on tape.

Look fly while you fly

I put time and effort into my airport outfits. I always have. The night before my flight, I lay it out down to the socks and underwear at the foot of my bed like I did on nights before field trips in elementary school. 

Mulan, Mushu, and the Movie Theater

I miss sitting next to total strangers, a pal or even a hot date, and watching scenes unfold on the big screen as I slurp down a large Diet Coke and, on special occasions, a pack of Red Vines.

Bex with a Hex

Yes, my name is Rebecca, but friends call me Bex, and I’m pretty sure I’ve got a hex, but I’m also not alone.

Miami at home: Puzzled in Petaluma

  Are 20-year-olds allowed to call people old friends yet? If so, Tommy is an old friend.  It was 2014, my freshman year of high school. Pink braces, plaid flats, side bangs and an unreasonable amount of confidence were the most notable things about me during this time. Skinny jeans, too much cologne, black vans and weed were the things most notable about Tommy during the same time. 

Treating Every Dinner like a Themed Party for a Week

Don’t let all of your beautiful going out clothes waste away in your closet. Quarantine sucks, but eating chicken with your family is way less annoying when you look fly. Give yourself any excuse to look dope during this time, because it made me feel a whole lot better than I did when I was chilling in my sweatpants all day.
