What I’ve Learned in College, Snow Days Edition
Snow days have quite possibly been some of the highlights of my college career, starting with Ice Storm ’09 which was the week of my birthday and resulted in about 10 people staying in our 2 bedroom apartment for 5 days. Best. Week. Ever.
Then there was Snow Storm ’10 which was, again, the week of my birthday, and this time there were again about 10 people under one roof, though we had upgraded to a 5 person house.
And now, #nwasnow11 with me tucked away inside a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 guys for 3 days. (That could very well be a blog post all on its own)
So here’s what I’ve learned in my three years of college snow days…
1. Whatever the situation, and whoever you are with, make the most of it.
2. Snow days can turn a person inside out- crazy, if you will.
3. Though the Internet is infinite, there is not enough there to sustain you for days when you’re trapped inside a house.
4. Board games are one of the best inventions.
5. So is sleeping.
6. You cannot, I repeat, cannot eat healthy on snow days, no matter how hard you try.
7. I could never live with a household of guys.
8. As much as I want to go outside and play in the snow, I will always complain that I’m cold.
9. Alone time is underrated.
10. Prepare for the worst, expect for the best.
11. You can do whatever you set your mind to. (Such as walking 2.2 miles in the snow just for pizza)
12. Don’t eat yellow snow.
13. Pack some snow in a bucket, put it in your freezer and save it for July. You will wish it was winter again.
14. I am not, and never will be, a video gamer.
15. A pot of pasta can go a long way.
16. Snow day/week inside jokes are the best.
17. Spend a snow day however you want to.
