Peirce on the Weekend

Back when I was super fit (oh, that pre-college era), I’d plan out every one of my vegan meals and would even hit the gym/pilates/yoga classes twice a day. But here at Kenyon, with classes and homework and social events and music lessons and blogging and everything, I’ve rarely have time to grab a bite, let alone plan what I’m going to eat (just kidding. Food has always been the priority.)

Saturday and Sunday mornings at Peirce are especially rough. You wake up hungry, with mussed hair, in grimy clothes, in a ditch with maybe your cell phone if you’re lucky (Oh, just me?). But do not worry that little pretty head of yours, just rely on the flowchart below to navigate your way through a weekend morning in Peirce. And remember, you have to go as soon as you wake up. Otherwise it will close on you.

What Did You Do on Saturday?

This previous Saturday was quite the day.  It was 4/20, a day that allows you to and even celebrates when you completely confuse what is inside and what is outside. Shock Your Mom happened and the insanity that is expected to accompany it, did. So, to commemorate the joy that was this last Saturday, we decided to ask our rambunctious Thrill staff for their weekend anecdotes and emotions so that we could share them with all of you. Try and guess who said what.

I never left the dorm; not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Continue reading
