    New Year's Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.

    Anyways, you want a good New Year's cocktail?:
    1.5 oz Scotch Whiskey
    .75 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
    1 oz Simple Syrup
    2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
    Lemon Twist for Garnish
    Shake it up and serve strained with ice. You'll thank me.

    get my grades. WHERE ARE THEY?!

      probably until SWP does more than a little discussion about the feedback on their progress.

      I'm still waiting on them to do a campus wide survey of student health/happiness.
