release valve for the overworked student

As you might have guessed from my last post, I've been feeling a little stressed. A million decisions to make, papers to hand in, future planning to consider and the unrelenting speed at which the days pass by: all of these factors have left me feeling frustrated and/or exhausted. It was time to remember that I am still a university student, and that I go to Western...

The answer should have come to me earlier, but I was so uncharacteristically caught up in stress that I overlooked one of the most wonderful, tested-and-true de-stress methods known to humankind:

Grab your friends and have a good, old-fashioned weekend of full out partying!
This week, I present to you:

Springasaurus Break -A hybrid theme created by Brian and Adam who had each chosen different themes when inviting friends (namely "dinosaurs" and "spring break!").

This party put any other party to shame. In a quiet, residential neighbourhood far outside the student ghetto, the epic festivities began. We all love eachother and decided last night was the perfect night to express our affection. Here's what happened...

Now we will all be wearing turtlenecks to class. The forecast says it should be a crisp, autumn week so that shouldn't be a problem. Does anyone even have turtlenecks anymore?

And this was, literally, just a taste. If any wants more of the photos from last night, just ask. I've caught you all on film.

It is easy to get caught up in the rush and the pressure in the higher-learning environment. I am so grateful to my friends for helping me remember how to have a great, great time.

Now, back to work...

my neck hurts. i tried makeup-ing it, but i think that it now just looks like a bunch of hickeys covered in makeup.

dallas said...

that one just shows the extent of the night: you in Alex's shirt (your 4th outfit), clutching a sword taht you ripped off a stolen knight, hugging your housemate in pure, childlike joy.

And don't worry Syl, more to come, more to come.
