This year was my first time attending MassJCL’s semiformal dance. As someone who doesn’t go to dances very often, I was at first unsure of what to expect. But amidst the excitement and fervor of all the JCLers there, my anxiety soon disappeared; this year’s Et Tu, DJ was an extremely fun and sastifying event.

Et Tu, BLSJCL?

As soon as I entered the Boston Common Hotel, I was greeted at registration by several MassJCL officers. Then as I walked up the spiral stairs, I met many JCLers from BLS and from across the state. A few minutes after I arrived, the talent show began. There were all sorts of performances, from B-Boy to fiddle playing to singing. All of the performers were extremely talented, but in the end, third place went Lily Yang, second to Andrew Xiao and Eddie Wang, and first to Tori Wu and Anna Li, all from BLS! After the talent show, the dancing began. Throughout the night, I talked to many friends across the state, took a lot of “selfies,” and even took the dance stage a few times. Et Tu, DJ was very well coordinated. The talent show was really interesting, and the food was good too! It is certainly something I will go to next year. I would also like to encourage people, who, like I was, are unsure about going, to try it out. Considering that in addition to what there was this year, there will also be a game room next year, that adds even more excitement and fun to the event!

EDITOR’S NOTE

With all the hot weather, bugs, and cramming for final tests, the school year is coming to a end. Before you head off to Florida or to a summer job (or to Nationals at the end of July!), though, here’s an issue of the Paws Romana (yes, it’s a pun off of the Pax Romana) to keep you updated on the things BLSJCL has done recently. In this issue, we have a lot to share with you, from the MassJCl Et Tu, DJ dance on March 15 to the biggest MassJCL event of the year: State Convention. We want you to make the publication your own: tell us which emperor you think is worse, try your hand at the puzzles and Certamen Corner, or send us your own Latin fun facts or jokes. Also, be sure to check out the Certamen articles (page 4) and the photo collage (page 6)! Have a great summer and stay tuned to BLSJCL news on social media! Michael Gao
