Displaying who are you.gif

1. Who are all these people?! Where did they come from?!

2. And why are there lines everywhere? I didn’t have to wait for even my KAF iced teas all summer.

3. On the other hand, non-summer KAF hours are a beautiful thing. On an unrelated note, I may never sleep again due to being over-caffeinated.


4. But I can’t get nachos at late night FoCo anymore…which is a problem for me.

5. Speaking of FoCo, I need to make a note to myself to avoid that place until the end of the term.

6. Why is it so colddd? It’s like the weather knows that 14X is over, so now it might as well be rainy and cloudy every day. At least it reflects my feelings about the summer being gone.


7. And on that note, thanks for the mere two weeks of an actual summer break, Dartmouth.

8. OH! Wait! It’s you!! I forgot about you but I like you! I guess it’s kind of nice to have other people back on campus too.
