#OccupyLibraries: The Art of People-Watching

Alas, the finals countdown has reached zero and finals are officially here. This past week, we’ve had fun keeping you busy with plenty of time-wasters and study breaks. But the fun doesn’t stop there— the idiosyncrasies of your fellow AQR- and FriSC-dwellers can be just as noteworthy and entertaining as the study breaks we provide. Yes, my friends, I’m talking about the art of people-watching. 

You won’t need to divert much time away from your studies to engage in this activity. To show you just how efficient this study-break is, examples are given in the most concise form known to any person living in the 21st century: tweet form (hashtags included). You don’t think we can do it in 140 characters or less? It’s on

  • And another one bites the dust. #casualties (see right)
  • To person reading, writing up notes on the LiveStrong case for ENGN9: It’s Lance Armstrong, not Louis Armstrong. #NOTawonderfulworld #jazzymistake
  • You wore those leggings yesterday. And the day before that. And the day before that. #doyourlaundry #takeashower
  • I see you, Ratty take-out #pointless #seewhatididthere
  • Where da NDR at? #finalsrunondunkin
Now it’s your turn—look around and observe your fellow students at work. For all you know, your best material may be right in front of you. Or sitting to your left. Regardless, keep living libbin’ it up, and keep coming back to BlogDH for more study breaks!
