Things more likely than finding a courtyard during finals

Janey Woo, Print Presentation Director

Imagine this: It’s 11 a.m. and you’re walking into the Bertrand Library, coffee in hand, already thinking about the BSG Fast Food Frenzy. You woke up later than you originally planned to, but it’s okay because it’s Reading Day. Instinctively, you head towards your favorite seating area that offers literally the perfect balance between work and play, and all you can think about is how fire that outline for your paper is already looking. Passing the tech desk, you simply cannot believe how grand your luck is — an open courtyard. With even more pep in your step and a brighter light behind your eyes, you scurry over. But for what? To find a single backpack on the chair, mocking you. A classic courtyard prank.

So, the next time you find yourself hoping to get some studying done, just remind yourself of some of the things that are more likely to happen than finding an empty courtyard during finals season:

  1. Getting a chopped salad from the Commons at noon (and finishing it)
  2. Hitting 10,000 steps
  3. Finding a working printer
  4. Paddling down the Susquehanna River
  5. Taking a trip to Wegmans
  6. Climbing up and down the Gateway stairs
  7. Reading the Bucknell Message Center Digest 
  8. Doing laundry on a Sunday
  9. Finding a parking spot
  10. Graduating
