A Columbia man congratulating himself for doing nothing
Inspired by Margaret Wise Brown’s best-selling children’s book Goodnight Moon, Friday Daily Editor and former associate of men Idris O’Neill has a message for all those Columbia boys in language they’ll understand.
In the great Ivy school
There were some frats
And male feminists
And a guy overheard
With proud sexist prejudice
And there were three sports teams sitting in Hewitt
And two ex-hookups
Who’d both sadly blew it
And that guy in your WGST seminar
And that tenured rumored predator
And a guy who cut me in line at Diana
And his other friends with no manners
Start sleeping on men after the jump

A common subject of complaint among Columbia students is the Advising Center (along with CPS, housing, dining, and everything else at this school, apparently). I personally cannot relate, because my advisor is great, but for those of you who are not as fortunate, we found out how you can switch advisors.
There is no big, complicated process. All you have to do is make an appointment to speak with Andrew Plaa, Dean of Advising, and either ask for a certain advisor if you have one in mind, or tell him about your concerns with your current advisor and he’ll find you a new one. You can make the appointment via the advising portal as you would when you’re scheduling any other advising appointment. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. You’re welcome!

Bwog was in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library (it was a group field trip) when we discovered a heretofore un-analyzed collection of early English haikus. We’ve done our best to render them in modern English, and boy, was their subject matter surprising.
It’s that time again
Sunday means a Bwog meeting
So here are the deets:
Anyone can come
Just bring your pitches with you
Bwog wants your content
By “content” we mean
Anything about CU
That belongs on Bwog
So, Lerner 510
Is where you will find our staff
At 9 pm sharp
We provide the snacks
(Have you heard of our green grapes?
The stuff of legend)
If these haikus don’t
Convince you to come rush Bwog
You might lack a soul ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Picture this, but filled with bees.
Happening in the world: In case you missed it, the US, the UK, and France coordinated air strikes in Syria on Friday night, bombing three government sites in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack last week. (BBC)
Happening in the US: Kentucky lawmakers overrode the governor’s veto on a state budget that increased public education spending, in a win for teachers whose protests had forced over 30 school districts to close. It’s another in a wave of recent teacher protests, but unlike those in Oklahoma, Arizona, and West Virginia, Kentucky educators are focusing on spending and pension reform. (Washington Post)
Happening in NYC: Today in “heartwarming but also terrifying,” read about a group of people gathering in Bryant Park to buy their share of 3 million bees delivered by truck. A haunting image: taking bees home by subway. Beekeeping was only made legal in NYC in 2010. (NY Times)
Happening on campus: Join Columbia Q&A (Queer & Asian) tonight at 6:30 pm in the Stephen Donaldson Lounge (first floor of Schapiro) for dinner and a short film screening! More info can be found on the Facebook event page.

What are you dreading existentially right now?
