Where to Cry at Brown, Pt II

crying

Two years ago, we gave you a comprehensive list of places you could cry at Brown. They were the classics and while the compilation seemed timeless, times have changed and so has our campus. After recently coming across another school’s article on places to cry, we realized that it has been too long. Despite us not having any trademarks on tears, and considering the original post in question is apparently hardly original, we still felt jealous. In fact, we felt like we wanted to cry.

It is time to end the drought in your eyes, so here it is: more places where you can cry at Brown.

Because buildings used to be there… and now it’s a pile of rubble that won’t be finished until after you graduate… and life is just changing so fast! Also, if you were an Urban Studies Major, feel free to cry because they legitimately knocked down your house.

Confused by why masses of students were acting like new mothers and fathers on Wriston Quad yesterday? No, it wasn’t the morning after SPG: it was Super Heavy Petting. If you missed out on the petting zoo, BlogDH is here to give you a recap of what went down, complete with pictures so you can do some virtual “heavy petting” at home.

Observing Super Heavy Petting was like watching an episode of Toddlers & Tiaras… except the toddlers were baby animals, the tiaras were their diapers, and the overbearing parents were overworked college students. It was just as dramatic, and we heard just as many quotable lines. Following is a play-by-play of the event, with some of the best “Overheard at Brown” quotes ever:

12:22 – First signs of activity on Wriston. Three people carrying cages emerge.

12:25 – Students passing by begin to notice. Many mosey on over.

12:26 – Behold the chicken that lives amongst the bunnies. Does the chicken think he’s a bunny or do the bunnies think they’re chickens? Continue Reading
