Harvard Today: March 5, 2014
Happy Wednesday! Congratulate your sleep-deprived self for continuing to chug through a long week of studying, midterms, and paper-writing because the end is almost here! And if you still have a ton of work to do, here’s a guide to help you determine where you should study tonight:
Your dining hall: You know that there’s no better way to offset the misery of catching up on all of your readings than eating inordinate amounts of Cinnamon Toasters as you do it.
Lamont: You’re preemptively calling an all-nighter (or something close to it), and you need other sleep-deprived people around you to hold you accountable as you work (a.k.a. people to judge you for logging onto Facebook every 2 minutes) into the late hours of the night.
Cabot: You for some reason want to partake in all of the pre-med students’ collective sorrows.
Widener: You’re either in the mood to hide away from all your friends by working in the stacks or to ignore the fact that your paper is due in less than 12 hours by admiring the beauty of the Phillips Reading Room.
Your room: You’re telling all your roommates that you’re going to do work, but it’s secretly a cover-up for binging on Netflix and then going to bed.
IN THE ATMOSPHERE
The high today is only 28 degrees and it’ll be a chilly 10 degrees at night, so bundle up accordingly! There’s also a 30 percent chance of snow later today, so you’re probably wondering how many days in a row you can wear your snow boots without it being a faux pas.
