Harvard Today: March 4, 2014

Happy Tuesday, Harvard! Today is March 4th, which means that we can officially start the ten day countdown until the last day of classes before spring break.

Start a countdown on your phone, and take a look at it every time you start to feel miserable in lecture. Or in section too, if you’re sneaky. 864,000 seconds will go by like that. 864,000, 864,599, 864,598...or at least we can pretend it will.

IN THE ATMOSPHERE

Today’s low temperature of 19 degrees is only three degrees less than yesterday’s high of 21. That’s progress right? Enjoy the partially sunny skies while they last, it’s the last day of the week with a 0 percent chance of precipitation.

IN THE D-HALLS

Lunch:
Grilled Citrus Chicken
Pork Spetsofai
Falafel Sandwhich

Dinner:
Lemon Pepper Tilapia
Pumpkin Gnocchi with Sage
