Unexpected winter wonderland

Somehow it surprises me every year, but the cold this year seems to have just hit a lot quicker and a lot harder than it usually does. Just last week we had highs in the sixties. That is the perfect temperature for me and it could have stayed like that for … well … the…

Dead Week approaches

The name “Dead Week” is nowhere as innocent as it may sound. Dead Week is supposed to be a time where professors begin to wind down on their curriculum and begin preparations for the given classes’ final exam. Well, this may be true to an extent; the term “Dead Week” can spell utter hell for…

The evolution of senioritis

This is for the high school seniors or the ones who want to reminisce about the infamous senioritis. No matter who you are or where you went to school it happens to you. For some of us, it crept up at the end of our junior year, for others, it held off until senior year…

Poetic Stress

It’s once again that time of year: midterms. Where there are papers due, books to read, textbooks to study and tests to take. This midterm is easily the most stressful by far for me. I have a paper due Monday, a paper due Tuesday, a paper due Thursday, an oral exam for Spanish due Friday…

Zombie Week

My friends/readers, I am sorry, but this is not going to be a very long rant about my life today. Actually, this post will consist of a lot of complaining, and just know that while I was writing this I was most likely crying. It is that time of the year: finals. I don’t really…

What is the “everything-today-day?” Well, for starters, it’s a term I just made up about 15 seconds ago. And for not starters (seconds?) it’s that very special and unique day…

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Imagine this. Average college student walking to class singing under his breath, “Sunny days. Chasin’ the clouds away.” Oh dear Sesame Street, I wish you were here. That’s right, rain has hit the campus and what’s more? It’s homecoming weekend! Walking into class with soaking wet shoes and uncomfortably moist pants and having to maneuver your jacket so it…

Sans Finals

This semester I managed to luck out to the extreme in terms of final exams. I don’t have any! Well, I don’t have any of the standard types of finals. At Hanover, some professors don’t give any finals at all. This usually is the case in an English seminar class where instead of an test,…
