Where to hook-up… again


Finals period has reared its ugly head, and once again, all we can think about here at BlogDH is sex. With everyone thinking about sex, what do you do when you come back to your room with your hook-up, only to find that your roommate beat you to it? Don’t despair, because as you’ve read in some of our previous posts, there are so many other places you can go to have a good time. There are those places we walk by on campus and say “damn, I would so get it on here,” and then there are the less glorious places that have a more utilitarian appeal. Here are some of our dreams and some of our realities when it comes to fun outside of your dorm:

Bamboo Garden – Sort of the inevitable outdoors hook up at Brown. You were probably just at Jo’s after some serious rounds of beer pong, and you think bamboo sticks are pretty and Zen.  Next thing you know, your feng shui is all up in a sexy somebody and the clothes are coming off.  If you don’t mind the cold, this is a very achievable option for a fun hook up.  However, beware, people have been known to piss in the stalks.

Secret Study Space: Vol VII.


It is that dreaded time of the year again. No, I’m not talking about the winter, though that’s pretty awful too. I meant it’s finals period. The time of exams, papers and projects worth a gargantuan portion of your grade. While you might be sleep deprived or stressed (or most probably both), I have some good news for you — a new secret study space. This study space might at first look like a futuristic hermit cell. “That seems extremely uncomfortable,” you might think. You’re right, it is a bit cramped in there. However, the distinct advantage of this austere design is that you will never fall asleep while studying. Further, a small personal lamp has been provided to ensure that there’s enough light. There are also several power outlets, something which can’t be said of other spots on campus. Finally this study spot is a bit far from campus, though still within walking distance, an optimum combination that ensures you can get there, but the crowds probably won’t.

As for this academic nook’s location, let me give you a hint: the (ahem) design is rather radical isn’t it?

BlogDailyHaikus, Vol. 1: Finals period begins

Because nothing screams “relaxation” like cherry blossoms and Helvetica, we’ve decided to share our finals period catharsis with you in Haiku form.

Must wake up early
Concrete jungle, stacks on stacks
We rinse and repeat

The creatures emerge
Converse with librarians
It is Pizza Nite

Starbucks or Blue State?
Or 7 a.m. Ratty?
There’s no way, Jose


Happy first day of finals period!

Woohoo, we can’t believe it’s finals period already — this year really went by at (Semi)sonic speed… But don’t worry. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.
