Larry David is a national treasure and I will fight you on that.  Everything he says is genius and should be written down into a tome to be treated as a biblical text.  This is why I have compiled a list of his quotes to get you through the rest of the year.

  1. “Let’s go upstairs and all get under the covers and cry.” – We survived the winter, but that doesn’t mean it’s over.  Soon it’ll be finals and we’ll all being miserable again.  Enjoy happiness while it lasts!

Everybody Hurts, Everybody Cries (at Kenyon)

One of the best things about college is that crying in public is no longer taboo. People cry at parties, when they’re stressed and just for fun. So we thought it would be a fun experiment to see the breakdown of where a select group of people — okay, we used the staff of this very blog — have cried on campus, since our vomit results were so interesting. The results were geographically diverse. Check out the breakdown (color-coded by person) after the break!

Stress Eating: The Curse of Finals Week

“Oh God, they’re here.  They’re finally here.  After all this time to prepare, and I’ve done nothing.  I’m about as prepared for finals as I was for Beyonce’s album.  There’s only one thing that’s going to solve this.  Hard work, studious dedication, or pizza.  I think pizza. Definitely pizza, that sounds easier anyway.”

That’s usually my thought process around this time of year.  I tend to stress eat my way through finals, and if you’re panic stricken and desperate like me, you probably do somewhat too.  Here’s how I managed my stress eating last night preparing for my final today.

This about sums things up my reaction to this week…except I've known about that boot coming down for about four months.  Same reaction though.

Welcome to a foray into the spring housing lottery as told by two successful yet vaguely traumatized housing proxies. The spring housing lottery is the dreaded event where students who are currently at Kenyon attempt to get good housing (some kind of apartment) for their friends and/or enemies that are currently abroad. The lottery took place in the Gund Game Room, a sick and twisted location mainly because it was NOT a game. All of the abroad broads and gents were given a time slot when their proxies had to rush in and fight (in an orderly fashion) for their desired housing. Kaitlyn Burd ‘15 (non-Thrill writer) and Izzy Sanderson ‘15, Thrill editor, were a daring pair of housing proxies. Read on for their evaluations of the day where the odds were in nobody’s favor.

10 o’clock list: Five Ways to De-Stress

Stress? What stress?

Stress? What stress?

Take a moment and imagine yourself in a happy place. Surround yourself with people you love, your favorite kind of  music, and lots of delicious food. Feel yourself  slowly sinking into euphoria when suddenly A BEAR ATTACKS! You try to run, but you can’t move. And you’re covered in honey. You’re also back in middle school and have just missed a test that you didn’t know you had. Are you stressed? Because that’s kind of what the last couple weeks of the semester feel like. Thankfully, the whole bear attack thing was probably just a stress dream. Sometimes you may feel too comfortable at Kenyon. However, at this time of year, you mostly feel uncomfortable at Kenyon (those  impending deadlines tend to be disgruntling). But never fear! This list is here to offer some quick ways to relieve some of your pre-finals tension.
