Although some poor souls still have midterms during the next two weeks, most of us are about to plunge headlong into the madness that is finals. Whether you’ve already sunk neck-deep into the sludge of final projects or are simply pondering the terrifying fall mid-air, the Internet always comes to the rescue. Never doubt its power, especially when this power comes in the form of a quick-and-dirty essay writer. Essaytyper.com makes it that much easier to compose that nasty treatise on “The Socioeconomic Deviations of Post-Racial Bolivia.” Go on, type it in…might be easier than you thought…
We’ve been saving this one.
Just when you thought that finals period had completely sucked away your will to live, the Intergalactic Community of A Capella came to the rescue with a glass-shattering rendition of “All Rise.” The usual rules apply: bring blankets, food and, if you’re feeling especially daring, a bottle of Strongbow. The Facebook event also promises that the portraits in Sayles will come alive and join in the festivities, so, yeah, there’s always that if you’re not into the whole music thing. We know that you have a shit ton of work, but so does everyone else.
The concert, taking place in Sayles, starts at midnight (but get there earlier if you want good seats!) and goes until 2 am.
Gets the job done.
Is that polka hair metal? No words.

Granted, this rare chance to wear sweatpants in public is not to be exploited too much, as your peers certainly probably may continue to judge you. You don’t want to show up at a party the night before your flight home all dolled up, only to be asked by some hot stranger if you’re the one that licked ketchup off of your shirt in the library – not that anyone does that. Cough. Moreover, you don’t want to risk becoming known as that horrible person who slept for three hours at a desktop computer in the SciLi basement. People will hate you forever. Please abide by the following rules of etiquette in pursuit of a more perfect
union library experience.
1. If your laptop battery has more than half of its life left to live, be kind and don’tyoudarepluginyourlaptop, especially in a coveted outlet.
2. If you must nap (and believe me, sometimes it cannot be helped), keep those inter-chapter snoozes to 30 minutes or less. Learn the art of power napping, and don’t forget to set an alarm so you don’t end up sleeping for hours on end. Of course, I always advocate closing the books and actually going to sleep, but keep that in the bedroom, please. Can’t you see that I’m waiting to print my paper??
3. Speaking of bedrooms, keep that in the bedroom. I have walked past far more moments of self-love in the stacks than I’m willing to admit, and I may have to suffer through years of psychotherapy for it. [Read more →]
