The Perfect Georgetown Snow Day

snow dayIt began almost 24 hours ago: The rumors started circling about gigantic snowstorm that was supposedly headed in the direction of our humble Hilltop abode.

However, the glimmer of hope for a snow day seemed not to be, as students received the terrible news last night that the university would stay open. Everyone felt like this:

Thankfully, luck seemed to shine down on the Hoyas today, and as of 5:35 a.m. the university officially closed!

tumblr_mgzprdh87Z1rjrmzvo1_500 I mean, come on, snow days are the best days! Here’s why:

You get to sleep in, all day if you want.

You can have breakfast for dinner or any combination of meals!

You are not required to change out of your comfy clothes, ever.

You can go play in the snow and relive your childhood glory days …

… or you can have a dance party with your roommates.

You can watch/catch up on your favorite shows without the pressure of classes.

You can read 4E all day long.

And most importantly, you can avoid Lau …

… because you probably already spent too much time there this weekend.

Enjoy the snow day, Hoyas! You never know when another one will come along!

Well, it kind of is. Just remember that this weekend is longer then our school week will be! And then we’ll have another weekend! It’s amazing how time works (especially when snow is involved).

Things You Can Only Get Away With During Summer

Happy (almost technically) summer, Hoyas!

Bring on the warm weather, sandy beaches, service trips across the globe and internships, internships, internships! As you know, each season brings a special etiquette – i.e., “Don’t wear white after Labor Day” and “You can only start listening to Christmas music after Thanksgiving” – and summer is no different. The sunny skies and lazy days of the season bring about a special rule book that is all their own. So let’s take a gander at it, shall we? Here are “The Things You Can Only Get Away With During Summer”:

Summer is the only time when you can sleep in all day.

So in the morning, you can be like this:

And then in the afternoon, you’re a little like this:

tumblr_mf7wisoZqC1qeh76mo1_500

But then at night, you look like this…

tumblr_m6nijlsGKK1rwpa5ho1_500

…because you’re going out! Duh.

tumblr_miod1fnakJ1qe9rxvo1_400

Maybe you’re even going to a bonfire!

Okay, maybe more like this:

Only during the summer can you chill by the pool…

… and do really cool tricks off the diving board.

And afterwards, you can eat ridiculous amounts of these Freeze Pops:

And then eat obscene amounts of ice cream:

Followed by daiquiris.

And then you’ll go to a music festival.

Cause it’s summer. And you can do/watch/eat whatever you want.tumblr_mlzgscIULn1qhmnito1_500

For example, you can wear a whole bunch of pastels. BECAUSE IT’S SUMMER.

Or you can wear this bathing suit. BECAUSE IT’S SUMMER.article-1031081-058986F00000044D-341_468x395

Just kidding. You should NEVER wear that bathing suit because it is morally and visually WRONG.

But you can go to the beach! (Because it’s summer.)

And you’ll look like the cast of Baywatch!

Only because it’s summer. And you’re awesome.
