Harvard Today: March 6, 2014

It’s Thursday, which means only one more day until Friday! Pass some time today by answering the questions below:

Over the course of this week, how many times have you….
a) Taken a BuzzFeed quiz instead of studying for your midterm and been sorely disappointed that you are not actually your favorite character on your most-watched TV show

b) Answered at an alarmingly quick speed when someone asked in conversation how many days there were until Spring Break

c) Reached out to your parents to tell them exactly what you want for your first meal back home

d) Decided to take a “nap” as a break from all your work, only to have it become a (glorious) night of over 8 hours of sleep

e) Told yourself that you will be a better student after Spring Break and not do any of the readings until 2 days before a test
