Are you looking for new and exciting ways to actively not do schoolwork on the weekends? Of course you are. Lately, Hannah and I have taken to a new form of procrastination that comes in handy especially on Sundays when you have nowhere to be except the library. So if you’re ever bored and kind of hungry, try our latest tip:
Sitting in the dining hall for hours on end.
You know the drill. You go there for breakfast and take your time. You wait those extra ten minutes for a fancy omelet (entirely worth it), and you settle in. There’s something about the dining hall on a Sunday that just feels homey. Maybe it’s the seemingly-endless supply of muffins. Maybe it’s the whimsical combination of Michelle Branch and the Backstreet Boys that plays on a loop. Maybe it’s the fact that walking out the door means you have to acknowledge the mountains of work that you’ve been ignoring all week. You’ve got no classes or meetings to attend, and this booth is just so comfy. And you’ll never get bored when armed with this list of fun suggestions to keep you busy while you loaf for hours in your dining hall of choice.
- Experiment with different hair styles. (This is me considering a perm).
2. Find new ways to accessorize with scarves. (Andie’s specialty).
3. And, if you’re feeling really adventurous, you can go for the full teletubby transformation. (For advice, see Hannah).
Then, there’s always the art of leaving. You stand up and survey the cluttered mess of dished you’ve managed to accumulate over the hours and wonder how you’re going to carry it all out in one trip. The game of dish-Jenga begins. Cup fits inside the mug, fork and knife on top of the napkin so it doesn’t flutter away while you hopelessly swat for it with your hands full. Then, as you walk down the stairs with the careful deliberation of a pageant queen, something goes clattering to the floor. It was probably the knife. Goddammit.
