Strike a Pose

Happy Friday! You’ve made it to the weekend! As you look back at everything that’s happened this week, try taking a tally of how many times the embarrassing things listed below have happened to you:

Harvard Today
1) Snow falling from a roof on to your head and your head only as you walk to class
2) Your phone auto-correcting a really funny joke you made in a group chat
3) Slipping on unseen ice on the sidewalk and having to pretend you’re not hurt so you don’t call attention to yourself
4) Falling asleep with your mouth wide open in a large lecture class
5) Your really embarrassing ringtone going off at Lamont
6) The cute kid from section watching you fill up an entire plate with curly fries and curly fries alone

Total Tally:
0-2: You’re basically the social king/ queen this week! We’re amazed that you’ve managed to walk around campus this gracefully all week. Congrats!
3-4: You’ve been in a healthy amount of socially awkward situations this week, but honestly, what else is new?
5-6: We’re really sorry for you. There's always next week...

IN THE ATMOSPHERE
Rejoice in the fact that we’ll have a high of 49 degrees tomorrow! Unfortunately it's not all good news as there’s also a 100% chance of rain. Does anyone even remember what sunshine feels like?!
