At 12:22am on the Wednesday of finals week, as I sit in one of the cubbies at the top of the jungle gym study space at the back of Burling with six other random grinnellians, we are greeted by three other grinnellians who are done with finals and want to support those of us who aren’t.
How do they show support? By handing us all candy and shots of rum with chasers. And so, those of us at the top of the jungle gym take a post-midnight shot together and resume paper writing.
(My apologies for the sudden infusion of Burling-related reasons! It’s finals week. :P I’ll diversify soon, I promise.)
