Knock, guys. It’s the smart choice.

I don’t know about you guys, but with the temperature dropping and the sky oscillating between being a light, foggy grey and an extremely soul-killing grey, it seems the best choice is to stay indoors, cover every surface of your dorm room with plush blankets and order huge amounts of Nite Bites in order to avoid that wind-blown walk from your dorm to Peirce.
