Time for ... Swinter?

Posted on 3/21/2018 4:06:31 PM by Julia Cattani

Well yesterday was the first day of Spring, but the weather outside doesn’t necessarily reflect that.  Last night we were hit with, what was it … the fourth Nor’easter of March!? And minute by minute the snow falls heavily, making even the biggest homebodies sick of being at home.

As a commuter, I don’t get to experience snow days on campus, however, I do get to see how beautiful the campus is through snowy snapchats and winter Instagram posts. I miss the excitement that snow days bring students, but as a near-graduate, I’m understanding that just because the schedule of the day has been canceled, there are still things that need to get done.

By using this time to write papers that are accumulating by the minute, I am able to lighten the work load that’s due before May, and feel as if staying in today has been worth it. Don’t get me wrong: every single day I pray for something on my schedule to get canceled so that I can stay in my warm bed, but every day I’m dismayed. A snow day is exactly what I needed at this point of the semester, though I’m sure that the Professors are getting quite annoyed with the bipolar weather.

With snow days come snow day assignments, so don’t think you’re getting off too easy. It would surprise me if the professors didn’t assign work, given that this is not the first time class has been canceled this semester. On the bright side, I love being able to complete these assignments in the comfort of my own home, cranking out one after another in record time.

Anyways, as I snuggle in bed with a warm cup of hot chocolate, I’m the most productive I’ve been in a long time. Completing current assignments, future assignments, and clearing my schedule is refreshing for me. To be honest, I wish we had a snow day once a week so that I could be this prepared for class.
