Midterms! Run away from that!
Well kids, it's that time again. It's time to buckle down and go crazy. It's time for the professors to start throwing homework assignments and papers at you right and left. It's time for those dreaded tests to come falling down on your head when you least expect it. Yes, it is midterms week. It's almost over for me. I only have one more test left. I should actually be studying for it, but I'm talking to you instead. It's so interesting around here when people get stressed. Actually, it hasn't been interesting at al this semester, people are mostly studying by themselves instead of in large rambunctious groups. Well, save the astronomy group. hehehe I must back up a bit.
The day is Thursday and I wake up to whiteness. Whiteness everywhere. Yes, it does snow here and it was snowing with a vengeance. Okay, maybe not. But it was the most snow I've seen since I've been here. For once, everything was completely white. So I decided to be red. I put on a bright red skirt and t-shirt, with a red sweater over it (must be dress code!) Then I borrowed Jen's red cape, muff, and shoes. The cape had a hood, so I was completely red from the tip of my head to the bottom of my feet. I enjoyed myself greatly walking around in the snow just being red. People told me I looked like Little Red Riding Hood, but I was actually going for the "Those which we do not speak of" look. That night (it was still snowing) the astronomy kids decided to study in the basement of the Commons. Now I being in physics & most of my friends being in astronomy, I thought I'd have a little fun. The basement is actually ground level in the back (it's built into a hill, like all the other buildings on this campus!) and has huge windows that we can & often do, climb through. So I waited until everyone was engrossed in the phases of the moon. I then put my hood up, so it covered my eyes. Then I stood as creapily as I could in front of one of those windows and stared at them. Sean looked up at me & then back at his books. I thought all was lost, when Claire looked up at me, screamed bloody murder & almost tipped over in her chair. Mission accomplished. I love midterms.
