  • Listening to music
  • Laying down
  • Textures are better

  • Certain housemates will steal your cups no matter what you do. Even if you put a bike lock on your cabinet in the kitchen. Somehow, your dishes will magically end up dirty in the sink even if you haven't used them in weeks.
  • Doing acid is like going to Disneyland. It's very colorful and you have to be with the right people or it's just going to be a bad trip.
  • Peace and Conflict studies is a really biased, ideological major.
  • Carmel likes dining hall food. That doesn't make her any less of a person...just different.
  • Chicken tikka masala from House of Curries MUST be ordered mild. They will tell you "It will be mild anyway" but you MUST insist. Otherwise, it will give off the worst case of bad spicy energy in the world.

  • People who listen to music so loud on their iPods that ten feet from them you can hear "Ay Bay Bay" by Hurricane Chris spilling out of their headphones.
  • People who think it is acceptable to bring a tuna sandwich to the library for a snack. These people must not have been socialized properly if they think that it is okay to flood their surrounding areas with the smell of canned fish.
  • People who bring their significant other to the library when that person is obviously not interested in studying. I am not cold hearted and I totally understand being in the throes of young love; however, when I'm trying to find a book or make a copy, I don't want to have to reach around two ugly people making out.
