Mitski’s “My Love Mine All Mine”

“My Love Mine All Mine” was a single released by American Songwriter Mitsuki Laycock. Mitsuki was born on Sept. 27,1990 in Mie Prefecture, Japan. She moved a lot growing up due to her father switching between jobs in several countries including Turkey, China, Malaysia, the Czech Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. She sang in choir at her high school and first started writing songs on the piano when she was living in Ankara, Turkey. The lyrics of the song seem to convey a deep and personal connection to the moon and a desire for love to endure beyond the writer’s lifetime. Mitski reflects on the moon as a source of light and wonders if they could somehow send their heart to it. The moon is portrayed as a celestial entity that has witnessed events “here before and after me.”

Constantino also actively works towards sharpening his intellectual prowess, co-running the Chess Club, taking his love of the clever game a step further. Constantino is already strategizing on how to better the state of journalism during his first year on The Tower Newspaper. “In the (past few) years, I’ve noticed that journalism is really poor,” said Constantino. “There’s a lot of ways you can interpret something in a specific way to alter the story without directly misleading people.”
