Studying at the Libery

School’s back in session. And what a wonderful time of the year it is! The mall is teeming with students either mid-study break or mid-study avoidance. Professors are in their rooms at 8 AM trying to wake up the groggy, unmotivated few who still feel cheated by the time of the class. And of course the library is overrun with those students who are already realizing how far behind they are.

If only there weren’t the fountain running, I wouldn’t have to take so many bathroom breaks…

Bring a blanket and pillow to the couches on the second floor, and ask people studying nearby if they could turn off the lights. Finally, find someone tucked away in a corner studying alone, scream out “FOUND YOU!” and then tell them it’s your turn to hide and run away.
