What does your dorm room say about you?


BlogDH’s S/NC checklist


Today is the deadline to change the grading methods for your classes. (Get on Banner right now if you’ve been meaning to change but haven’t yet! You have until 5 p.m.) Since it’s the one thing about Brown academics that is apparently written in stone, you should probably carefully consider how intense you want this semester to be when deciding whether or not to take that class S/NC.

Check everything below that applies to you, and our generator will let you know whether taking that fourth class for a grade really is a good idea.

Should you take that fourth class S/NC?

I’m taking two (or more!) classes for my concentration.
I’m taking on leadership positions like it’s junior year of high school.
I just started Gilmore Girls on Netflix.
I spend more time in the SciLi/Rock/BarHo/CIT than not.
I’m off meal-plan …
… and I have no idea what to do with the kholrabi from my Market Share.
I’m also working a job.
I’m starting to realize that I really won’t care enough at the end of the semester to write that final essay about a geobiochemical-linguistic analysis of late-post-structuralist agrarian economies and what Foucault had to say about them.
Sometimes I, you know, like to have fun.
Like … really have fun.
Like the GCB is my idea of a night off.
I’m living off campus.
Living off campus is not as glamorous as people made it out to be.
I’m doing a thesis.
I’ve already had to choose between the schoolwork-friends-health triangle.
I’m taking five classes.
I’m a science concentrator taking that senior seminar in the humanities and oh dear god the reading doesn’t end.
I’m a humanities concentrator taking that one I-shoud-probably-take-a-science-class-’cause-it’s-good-for-me class.
“Do I have mono?” is something you’ve wondered multiple times.
I’ve already pulled an all-nighter.
I’ve already pulled multiple all-nighters.
I’ve napped in a school building that wasn’t a dorm.
I’m currently using this quiz to procrastinate an assignment

How Spring Weekend are you?

Everyone is finally coming down from that Spring Weekend high (literally or not), and in the words of Green Day Binder, I hope you had the time of your life. Looking back on the whirlwind of last weekend, everyone seems to think that their high was the highest and their ratchet was the ratchet-ist. But how Spring Weekend are you really? Click all of the questions that you can answer “yes” to in order to find out:

BlogDH presents: The Concentration Sorting Hat

Are you sophomore slumping and still haven’t decided which concentration to declare, with the deadline tomorrow at 5 p.m.? Or are you senior springing and wondering if you should have studied something completely different? Let the Concentration Sorting Hat tell you! There are over 75 possible concentrations at Brown, so we couldn’t include of all of them. We’ve selected five from different corners of the academic globe to give you a sense of direction during these tumultuous times. Answer the sorting hat’s questions to find out what you should really be studying. Don’t let the sword of Gryffindor poke you on the way out.

An internal monologue while taking the “Girls” BuzzFeed quiz

Oh em effing gee. Finally, a quiz that will tell me which Girls character I am. I’m so tired of having this fight with my friends because I’m so obviously Hannah because I want “to feel it all” but of course, everyone wants to be Hannah. They’re like, shut up, you’re totally Shosh. And no one is ever Jessa. Just because you went abroad last semester doesn’t automatically make you any more of a Jessa.

So, let’s see… starting by choosing a frozen snack. That’s clever. Even though it seems totally arbitrary, they’re obviously channeling people who aren’t on meal plan and have to cook frozen food. I’ll take the potato skins. Hannah would totally eat them while trying to write. The sugar free popsicles are totally Marnie.

Which dog would I pet? So, do I choose the cutest? Because I hate petting random strangers’ dogs on the street. I don’t go up to and pet people’s children even though I think babies are much cuter than dogs. Oh, this may be like what dog would each character be. I’ll choose the Toy Spaniel, even though that seems like a Shosh dog. Oh well. I’ll make up for it later.

What do I do if I have a crush on someone…well I can actually base this on personal experience. “Freak out.” That was easy.
