Perfect places to study... or not.

As finals week begins I have been on the lookout for places to sit and read through countless powerpoint slides and pages of notes. While the list may not be the most exciting places to camp out during finals I hope that you, reader, find it helpful or at least amusing while I try to deal with my stress with humor. So here it goes.

Admissions Building

Early Decision I came out today and high school students are deep into all of their college decisions, making the final edits to their applications, trying to figure out their futures. But this far into December, no one is really taking college tours. No college tours equal no potential students in the admissions building. They have comfy couches and a nice fireplace. Pulling out all the stops for future students, trying to distract everyone from our beautiful blue construction fences that we have everywhere.

Laundry Room

Apparently, everyone is too busy to wash their clothes? I guess that sweatshirt will probably last until finals are over... maybe.

Any of the grad school libraries

My favorite thing about grad students is that they keep to themselves and don't talk much. No club libs for me, I need that peace and quiet.

The DUC during the afternoon

Everyone is again, distracted. Running around. Taking exams. Ordering Uber Eats. Making unhealthy diet choices, the usual.

Gym

Again, unhealthy decisions. What else can I say. Every time I passed the gym this week it was pretty quiet.

Next to the trashcan at your favorite coffeeshop

Have you seen how much coffee just gets tossed into the trashcans? Do I need to say anything more? We get it, you blew your budget and now you need the caffeine. No judgement here.

In your car

So you can drive home immediately after of course. If you find yourself with some spare time, I highly suggest going ahead and packing up and living out of your car for the last week of the semester. Everything you need is all right there.

Bed

There's nothing more comfortable than your own bed. Just bundle up and hunker down. Of course, you'll probably fall asleep within 10 minutes of "studying" but oh well.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

327

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
