Weekends, College Edition
Posted on Saturday, January 9th, 2016 by Ali Froslie
Weekends. Who doesn’t love ’em?
In college, weekends mean a much desired break from classes and the option of more hours in which to procrastinate homework. There’s usually not a shortage of things to do, should you desire to find something. The Campus Entertainment Commission usually puts on a few events (usually Thursday or Friday… sometimes Saturday). Clubs and committees meet. Friends make plans. Students procrastinate.
My weekends tend to vary week to week. This weekend has actually been fairly busy, but some weekends I find myself with nothing planned (which is totally fine too!). Those free weekends I usually spend doing homework, getting lost in the endless cycle of YouTube videos (you know what I mean… one Ellen video turns into ten), or doing something else that I enjoy (like knitting). This weekend I’ve done some of that too, despite having things planned. Friday night I attended a movie night that was held in the Maize… The Intern with Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway. I had seen the movie previously but liked it enough that I wanted to go back for a second viewing. Saturday morning I woke up early, braved the crazy cold temperatures, and drove to a local church where we had our winter choir retreat. We rehearsed, laughed a lot, and ate some really good pizza.
So, there is always something to keep busy with in college. But never fear, there’s also time for doing nothing as well. This evening I’m sitting on my couch with the luxury of knowing there’s nothing completely pressing that I have to do. My knitting bag is staring at me temptingly, and my American literature anthology is sitting by my side like a true companion. It’ll be a good night. 🙂
