I have an unnervingly easy week of homework, which makes me wonder what's coming up next, but which I take advantage of.

Recently I have been to two visually awesome events. One was the Rokia Traore concert (I don't know how to put the accent over the e in this program, but it should be there), and one was my friend Brianne's comps talk. Why would a comps talk be visually awesome? Well, mainly it was about the physics of whales - how they use echolocation, how they dive as deep as they do and conserve their energy, how they stay warm, how they communicate, etc., etc., etc. Many of her friends felt compelled to dress up as sea creatures - there was a narwhal, crab, jellyfish, etc.

Sorry this is so late - things have been a bit hectic around here lately. I am working on a lot of things (I almost listed them all, but then I remembered that my blog is supposed to ENCOURAGE people to come here - at least a little). Here are some interesting things that have happened in the past couple weeks:

Everyone has particular places they feel more productive. I personally do almost all of my work in the Library. And I really love the libe. It has so many different work environments. If you want to work with lots of background noise/people to distract you, you can work in the main room on the fourth floor (remember, the libe is built into the hill so you enter on the fourth floor). If you'd rather have a small classroom for you and your friends, you can find a study room on third. Or maybe you just want complete silence while you read, in which case you can find a nice comfy couch on first. Or maybe you...MORE

We get a day off! This happens once a trimester, so it's kind of a big deal.

Whenever I give tours, there are a couple questions that always seem to come up. One of them is, "How often do you go up to the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul)?" I think it might surprise a lot of people that I rarely go up to the cities (and I feel like that's a pretty common sentiment among most students). I've left a few times to go up to the Guthrie or the the Walker Art Museum, but in general I only leave Northfield to go to the airport or Chipotle (or the outlet mall). Granted, I am from a small town, so to me...MORE

A few days ago, we had a prospie on our floor who, I think, got the quintessential Carleton experience all in one night. Here is how his night went:

I am working on two papers right now, so stay tuned for posting later this week.

On Thursday, at precisely six o'clock, in the Language and Dining Center, a large but strategically hidden pair of speakers suddenly began playing waltz music loudly. Dozens of students arose simultaneously and without warning from their tables, paired up and began to waltz across the dining hall. When the music ended, they returned nonchalantly to their meals and acted as if nothing happened.
My take on the event, inside.
