Aside from all the stress of homework, midterms and other worries students have at Hanover College, I still like to make the short trip to the movie theater once in a while.

And exhale, for about a second

It’s Tuesday night of the English department’s comps week ,and I can think about nothing other than, “I’m done! I’m done! Yayyyyy!” Unfortunately, this is a double-edged sword.
