    The leisure hive: rethinking the weekend

    The cliché is that Carleton students “work hard and play hard,” that we spend all our time during the week on our workload and so we need to move just as far in the other direction during the weekend – we need to play beer pong or go to a Sayles Dance after a week of reading Adorno and pipetting lizard blood, as if that will reset us.

Abductive reasoning is making something and seeing what happens.

At Volleyball practice on Monday, Julia’s coach had asked her to remove the ring that she never removed. It was the ring that Julia’s grandparents had given it to her on her sixteenth birthday.
