Frances Sutton ’13 is abroad right now, and keeps sending us these cute videos she’s making in Copenhagen. We missed her Valentine’s Day message, but she’s now decided to issue a challenge to all of us to do exciting things with our Leap Day tomorrow. While we can’t say for sure we’ll have time for the whole thing, I would like to say this to you, dear reader: take half an hour tomorrow to stop and breathe.
Seriously though. Whatever it is that will help you find a little bit of calm amidst a stormy sea of exams, do it. If that means going to the KAC and getting your fitness on for a little bit, that’s great. Or maybe you’d rather go to Sunset Point and read something that wasn’t assigned by someone with a Ph.D. Or perhaps it just means grabbing a booth at MiddleGround with your three closest friends and pretending that it isn’t the week from Hell. Just don’t think too much about it, lest the decision alone become a stressful experience.
Our advice might not be helpful to everyone, but it’s important to remember that if you’d like support of a different, more private sort, there are people here at Kenyon who can provide that. Our counseling center can be reached at 740-427-5643. A huge number of Kenyon students use their services, and everything is confidential.
So good luck on your exams — we’re rooting for you!
