Flyby gave to me a (very real) reading period itinerary.
You may have hopes of studying efficiently, eating well, exercising frequently and not going insane, but we all know that as soon as you click on that first Buzzfeed list, things go downhill and before you know it four hours and all hopes of a productive day fall to the wayside (don't worry, you're probably going to get an A anyway). Flyby has come up with two reading period pie charts detailing the expectations vs. realities of reading period.
Reading period is almost here, and students’ sleep schedules are sure to take a brutal hit. Mugs full of Lipton black tea and nondescript coffee will inevitably dot library tables, but why settle for the usual dining hall drinks to get your energy fix?

It's a classic dilemma: You've finally turned in that take-home exam and you sense that the occasion calls for a celebration, but all your blockmates are busy and the trek to Berryline seems daunting.

Students and faculty enjoy the sunshine in the Yard on Sunday during reading week before finals begin this Thursday.
They say that a parent's love is unconditional, but if you want to keep receiving care packages from Mom, it can't hurt to show her some love on Mother's Day. Even though the holiday isn't until next Sunday, it's probably not a good idea to treat your gift like a response paper—in this case, every word counts and your Mom, unlike your TF, can see right through your sloppy submission. To help you get started on your gift—before reading period and exams drain your life source quicker than a Dementor—Flyby has some suggestions:
Though discussion of a proposal to alter reading period was eclipsed by revelations about the extent of faculty email searches at Tuesday’s faculty meeting, the Committee on Undergraduate Education continued to debate the possibly of banning due dates for assignments during reading period at their meeting Wednesday afternoon.
