The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

So, as my post title says, it is everyone's favorite time of the school year: finals! I've been in the library for the past 24 hours or so; I've spent probably a total of three days (as in 72 hours) here in the last week. It's uber fun.

Now, I am a big fan of the all-nighter. Who needs busy work during the semester when you can save it all for the last second and burn a few brain cells staying up for a several straight days to get it done?

Of course, things don't always work out perfectly. One key ingredient for such fun times in the reading room is coffee.

The same kind of coffee that I just spilled all over my laptop. In a moment of blazing glory. It puddled in the keyboard, pooled around the battery, and proceeded to slide all the way across the table over the other side where my friend neatly caught it in the cup it had just escaped. It was a beautiful dance of creamy French Vanilla.

What does one do in this situation? When one's grip is sliding off the last bit of twine attached to sanity?

Why, sit outside the professor's office door of course, hoping she will show up and bring absolution from the horror of deadlines.

"I really did spill coffee on it! See! Smell it! Sniff it! Sniff!"


On living, loving, learning, and fucking with the materials I've got at hand.
