Uphill/Downhill: Quiet Time and Crunch Time

Well, you all survived the weekend, congrats.

Uphill: Peace and Quiet — After a long month of October it is finally November and time to relax a little more on the weekends. Consider for a moment the fact that we have had Halloweekend, the Inauguration, Parents Weekend and Reading Daze all in a row. Finally, we have a weekend to just relax and spend time with those closest to us instead of hanging out with all 1,600-some students on campus.

Downhill: Crunch Time — With the promise of Thanksgiving Break on the horizon, it’s easy to forget that you are in the thick of the semester. This is a time when you aren’t sure whether you want to be on break or to live in this pre-break no-paper lull forever. Yeah, break will come, but then again, so will the deadlines.

  1. Spencer,

    Recently my pet parakeet woke me up in the middle of the night with its whistles. This isn’t a typical occurrence as I dutifully cover his cage with an old pillow case when I go to bed. His squawking did not sound like it usually does like when he gets excited when I come home from work or when new friends come over to my house and make a big deal about him. His shrieks were even worse when I grabbed him by the head and broke his neck through the bars of the cage to get him to shut up. My question is, how do I get over the guilt?
