Ahh, the joys of a couple days off. Kind of. With classes ending yesterday (Wednesday, Dec. 3), everybody has Dec. 4-7 off from school, but with the slight exception that the days are meant to study for finals.
Of course, most don’t keep sight of that. Wednesday night saw an increase in perfume and cologne use, as students rolled out of their residence halls dressed as they would on a Saturday night. Our prayers also go out to the gallons of gel that more than likely lost their life last night, and to the few collars that got popped. Last night’s fireworks and Christmas tree lighting seemed to go over pretty well, but I couldn’t tell you how Montgoris’ desert party went over. They refused to serve any desert when it started, so my friends and I split.
Now, some of us may be studying this Thursday afternoon. Myself? I’m flipping through the pages of Sports Illustrated and Entertainment Weekly to the sounds of 311 before heading out to a press screening of The Wrestler. We should all be studying so we don’t screw ourselves, but we’ve all (well maybe just most of us) have worked hard this semester, so enjoy your few days off.
But remember: lay out those books before you pawn them for cash and get to studying. Good luck on your finals everyone. Here’s a little Christmas cheer to put a smile on that face:
