Only a few precious days remain before spring break. And usually, we write a post about how you should hide your alcohol from your CA. But this year, since this past month’s been so tough and you only have two midterms and an essay due this week, we thought you should treat yourself a little and drink all of the alcohol you have in your dorm. I know, this is a hard task, but we made up some rules to help you achieve your dreams!*

  • Grab a to-go cup from Peirce. Fill it half with coffee, half with that bottle of Bailey’s your mom got you for Christmas. Every time your 8:10 Econ Professor is overly enthused, take a sip. Continue reading

Sunday Feelings Check

Fun-day, not Sunday!

It’s Sunday. That means you have T-minus not-enough-hours until midterms–AND–tomorrow’s Monday. Oh foo-ey. The powers of the world are seeking my destruction. In an attempt to prolong our own procrastination, we decided to spot-check the emotional health of the rest of the campus–and by spot-check, we mean we accosted students at random in Olin. How are you feeling today? Be sure to tell us in the comments!

Alarmed desk attendant is feeling “alright.” We feel that.

Uphill/Downhill: Reading Daze and the Devil

It’s time for another Uphill/Downhill! Arguably though, this could have been done yesterday, halfway though our work week.

Uphill: Reading Days — That special time when we can let our hair down from the first few weeks of classes. Finally we have settled in and the real work is beginning, so I guess that makes it ok to take a little break. Not sure that they even call it “Reading Days” anymore. I think more people are just referring to it as October Break or Reading Daze.  I can’t wait to try a new beer from the market and maybe get a little pleasure reading done. I hope you will all follow my lead.

Uphill/Downhill: State of Nature and Midterms

Another week mostly gone, the frozen winter is drawing closer, but next week is Reading Days which is the best time of the year.

Uphill: Government Shutdown — Government Shutdown themed parties will be had this weekend. Now that the Government is done for a little while, it’s time to let our hair down and party like some kind of state of nature. So lock your doors, gather those closest to you, mix the soil with your labor and grab the closest 40oz, because it’s time for some fun.

Uphill/Downhill: Sweet Springtime and Sour Milk

Happy Leap Day, everyone!  You’ve made it to the middle of the last week before break, so here are a couple of things to keep in mind as you make that final midterms push.

Uphill: Spring Break — I know last week’s Uphill was also Spring Break, but this definitely warrants a second look. This is the last pit stop before we make that final push for the end of the year and get into the home stretch.  All I can say is, use these two weeks wisely and recharge.  This break is going to have to sustain you for about six weeks, so make it count.
