Easter Break – It does feel strange to have another break so soon, but we’re glad that we have it. Sure, second semester always feels a little more disjointed because of all the stopping and starting, but another break means that we have time to travel, hang out with friends and family, or just go home and sleep it all away. After it’s over, we still have so much to look forward to: warmer weather, Marathon Monday, and the last couple weekends of fun before finals season hits and we all ship off for the summer. Enjoy this break, y’all. Bring a copy of The Heights with you and try to convince anyone you talk to that The Depths is a real thing.
Originality – I ran into someone I hadn’t seen for a while the other day in the middle of campus. When I asked her what she was up to, her response was, “Just walking around.”
New Rackets – After having equipment with broken strings, curved heads, no grip, and staples coming out of the handle, the Plex has finally picked up new squash, racquetball, and tennis racquets that all actually serve their purpose. There is no direct correlation, but we pay a lot of money for this school, so next time these things are bent at a 90-degree angle, let’s just throw them away and buy a new one, huh? Regardless, we’re happy we’re not worried about lacerating our hands open the next time we make a dive for a ball. Thanks, Boston College.
Shake Shack – It technically is a fast food restaurant, but Shake Shack reminds us more of Five Guys than it does of McDonalds. And that’s a good thing. The closest one is a 15-minute walk away, but if we happen to be starving and walk by one in the city, there’s no better place to grab a thick burger, fries, and a milkshake. Our pleadingly hungry stomachs go out to you, Shake Shack.
Shake Shack Prices – We never thought a slab of meat and some potatoes could cost so much money.
Procrastination – It’s getting to the point in the semester where if you fall behind, there’s really no time to catch up. We’re trying our best to keep up with everything, but when everything is assigned in the same two-week window, we realize that everything is not going to get done as perfectly as we want it to. When it’s 4:30 a.m., and that all-nighter becomes a stark reality because we killed too much precious time on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, all we can do is sigh and ask why we did this to ourselves when we were fully aware of our situation.
