I’ve spent the past week or so running about in flip-flops, taking advantage of the sunny, 55 degree weather to catch up on all the vitamin D I failed to absorb in wintry days past. In celebration of this meteorological grace, my writing professor agreed to move the location of today’s class from the obscure whereabouts of Building 1 to the calm expanse of Killian Court. It was due to this decision that I spent an hour and a half of this afternoon utterly distracted. As my classmates read their stories out loud, I found my attention drifting away from their words and towards the glinting of the Charles to my left, the elegant pillars supporting MIT’s dome to my right, and the pleasant breeze that blew all around me, harassing my already chaotic collection of curls.
I figure that with decisions coming your way in four days and an orgo test coming my way in a week, it’d be better if you guys were distracted in my stead. It is with this notion in mind that I present you with the following means to prevent the insanity inherent in counting down the hours, minutes, and seconds to 3/14 at 1:59 pm:
3) ImprovEverywhere’s many accomplishments
5) Potter Puppet Pals! (Yes, I realize this is old, but it’s funny anyway :D)
8) The Onion :)
10) And my most favorite lecture in the world:
Just four days of waiting left! ‚ô•
(P.S. Thank you, Kuljot ’13, for helping me come up with this distracting list ^_^)
