Camus was definitely talking about your social life.
“In the midst of winter midterms, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer freshman.” – Albert Camus, The Stranger
October is here. You’re butt hurt and overwhelmed by your twenty papers, five exams, and two inexplicable “projects,” and the only way to really deal is to get sloppier than your NSOP self. Hey, we don’t judge—school is hard and you have to let off steam somehow. Keep it up, kids, and send along your latest misadventures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Literal souvenirs of weekend endeavors:
“Things I went home with: Public Safety after being CAVA’d Saturday night outside of 1020. Oh how I wish I were joking.”
“I walked past possibilities@columbia being torn down at like 1 a.m. on Wednesday, and thought it was a good idea to join the crowd of drunk people picking through the trash and got this mini foosball game which I will probably never use. “
“The traffic cone that made its way home with me Saturday night. It’s bigger/heavier than it looks.”
Your valiant hero carried this for a full three blocks.
Miscellaneous encounters within the Columbia bubble:
“I spent a lot of my weekend watching Gilmore Girls and trying to study (but mostly watching Gilmore Girls).”
“Left my Barnard ID at a Columbia dorm and was denied re-entry at the dark hour of 3:30 AM. How I was able to walk back to Watt, get my ID, and go back to Barnard is beyond me. Currently in a love-hate relationship with Public Safety.”
