As hard as it is to believe, spring has
supposedly finally begun, and it’s time for our favorite Blog series: our 12 day countdown to Spring Weekend. For the next 12 days, we’ll be dishing out all our best Spring Week advice. We’ll post anything you need to know in preparation for SW15 — artist profiles, ticketing information, weather forecasts, life advice; all the relevant knowledge to make Spring Weekend the best three days of your school year. (Oh, and Furby might make an appearance).
It’s time to start getting ahead on your on your reading, stocking up on sleep, and listening to our Spring Weekend Blogify playlist on repeat. Get excited, Brown. The wait is almost over.
You know what makes the spring semester so superior to the fall semester? The week-long break after a hectic midterms week. (Spring Weekend and the–hopefully–approaching warm weather also don’t hurt.) BlogDH is about to peace out for the week, but before we go, we want to know what you guys are going to be up to this week.
In case you have been living under a rock or winter in south Florida, Providence has become a bit of a winter
hellscape wonderland in the past couple of weeks. Though the cold really is a pain, the extraordinary amount of snow has given us some opportunities for fun. Russell Carey ’91 MA’06 wrote the best email ever. The Pyramids of Giza showed up on the Main Green. Every bottle of peppermint schnapps on the East Side was purchased and consumed in the span of 24 hours last week (probably).
You see? There are plenty of fun ways to beat the cold. Now we want to know how you brave the New England winters.
It’s back! Just like last year, BlogDailyHerald is proud to be collaborating with the Senior Class Board to bring you this year’s Senior Superlatives poll. We want to celebrate the members of the Brown Class of 2015 by acknowledging their smarts, quirks, or potential to become the world’s next viral reality star. Here’s how it works:
Anyone with a Brown email address can vote, which means that all students and faculty members are eligible to nominate members of the senior class.
1) Nominate seniors in 30 different categories. Nominations will close on Monday, January 26 at 11:59 p.m.
Then, you can:
2) Vote for one of the top five nominees in each category. Voting will close Sunday, February 1 at 11:59p.m.
The results will then be posted in the following week here on BlogDailyHerald. So what now? Nominate seniors across 30 categories in a Google Form after the jump!
Life sucks right now. We all have to write eleventy million pages by the end of next week and/or memorize everything our professors ever said. Plus, winter finally started, so we’re also all freezing. We could talk about everything we have to do in these next two weeks forever (and in fact, this is what I spend my days doing: running around listing everything I have to do to my friends, on scraps of paper, in my mind, etc). But instead, let’s try and think of something to be positive about. BlogDH wants to know: what’s good/okay/not totally awful in your life right now?
It’s November, which means a seemingly endless onslaught of heavy precipitation at temperatures just above freezing has begun. In the past few days, I’ve heard a myriad of terms used for the absolutely awful weather that most recently visited us on Monday.
So what is it? A wintry mix? Sleet? The Worst Thing? Let us know. In the meantime, we at BlogDH just wish it would snow already. Time to move to Buffalo.
