I think we can all agree that, in terms of the most stress and illnesses, the winter quarter sucks.
Davis has so much rain from January through February. So much that this year, they sent out flood warning emails a few days before classes started for the quarter.
Thousands of us struggling to bike all the way to class in the rain. Or walk to class. Even with an umbrella, it's awful. Taking the bus helps, but there's always that one person who will blindly fall into some mud...that person this time was me at 9:30 pm, walking off the bus.
And with the terrible weather, sicknesses somehow spread...fast. Sometimes, we think it's OK to go outside without a jacket...yeah, if you haven't figured this out already - it's bad. Don't do that.
And lastly, for some reason, everyone has more work to do during the winter quarter...or at least it feels like we have more work.
Most students choose to take a lot of units, maybe just to get them out of the way so that their spring quarter can be sunny and easy. But of course, in the time of this precious quarter, we highly regret this decision.
