One of the best feelings in the world is waking up on a beautiful seventy-degree morning in the middle of February after a snow storm two days prior. People hanging out of their balconies with their friends, laying on the quad doing homework while playing the newest country hits, playing catch along the streets and soaking in the much-needed vitamin D.
Although you may have class, you spend every minute you can outside. You see people that you normally don't hang out with and wind up doing work with them at a picnic table and meet new people that you have never seen before walking around campus. It is a day of friends, homework and the needed sunshine that you haven't seen all winter.
It is a tease for the upcoming days in the spring semester that we have yet to encounter. You face the temptation of not going to class and soaking up every minute this day has to offer. Peoples attitudes change. You see the people that are normally cooped up in their 4 by 4 dorm room playing fortnite with eight of their closest friends playing catch with a football outside their dorm. You see the gym rats outside running around campus instead of inside the weight room. You even see the teachers holding class outside because we all know living in New England is unpredictable and the forecast for tomorrow is probably cloudy and 41 degrees. Although we may not have many of these days in the winter, they bring classmates and friends closer together and give us a glimpse of what is yet to come.
