The Dark Deantini Rises

We’re resurrecting the Night In The Life series, except this time we’re doing it with an administrative twist. Bwog correspondent Anna Hotter drew up a timeline for what she thinks Deantini is up to after hours… Read below to see Deantini’s own admiration for Columbia Admirers and to fully understand Deantini’s reaction re: Prezbo’s personal invitation to watch the Dark Knight together for (yet another) time.

The sun is setting on another beautiful day at Columbia University in the City of New York. Alma Mater is stretching her arms to beckon the darkness. Go Lions!

6:35 pm
Emailing Gareth Williams about the possibility of combining Literature Humanities and Frontiers of Science into one huge lecture-based class about Science-Fiction. Get it? ScienceFiction? I mean it’s genius! I know we’ve said this before, but it seems like it could really work out this time.

6:40 pm
Wasting some time on Columbia Admirers. I mean I know that I probably won’t get one but I just want to make sure, you know. Like I don’t wanna sound like a dick, but it’s kind of weird that I haven’t gotten one yet?! Whatever.

7:00 pm
Ugh, finally! Time to leave Hamilton. I walk out into the Van Am Quad and breathe in deeply. Can you smell that? That’s the smell of hundreds of brilliant young minds working! It’s moments like this that I almost wish I had gone to college. But no time for regrets, I have a school to run!

7:30 pm
Dinner with PrezBro. I’m keeping a tally of how often Lee says “global” in random conversation.

7:34 pm
Dear god we’re at 27already. Also he needs to stop talking about John Stuart Mill or whatever. It’s like we get it, you went to Law school!

8:15 pm
Just got a text from Gareth telling me to “come to the cult statue of our great goddess Athena.” Kind of curious what this is about. Lee is getting pretty drunk anyways and it’s only a matter of time before he’s gonna start making fun of my bald spot. Time to go.

8:23 pm
Ugh, ran into Dean Awn outside Kent but I didn’t know if I should say hi, so I did that thing where you pretend you’re on your phone. I think I pulled it off, but we made eye contact for like a second so I can’t be sure. If anything he should say hi to me, you know? I mean I’m not trying to rank schools here or anything, but if we were … anyways.

8:25  pm
Walking into Barnard. Weird, I can’t see Gareth anywhere?

8:26 pm
Found Gareth! He’s loitering by Athena. Oh god he looks pretty angry.

8:42 pm
Ok, so long story short, it seems like Frontiers of Science-Fiction Humanities is not going to happen after all. Gareth really wasn’t happy about it. I don’t want to get into too much detail about what he said because, well, to be honest, most of it was pretty hurtful, and a some of it in Latin.

9:03 pm
Got myself a bag of peanut butter cups at Morton Williams. I deserve it!

9:20 pm
Lee texts me to come back to his place and watch The Dark Knight for what has to be the 100th time. Seriously he’s obsessed with that movie it’s weird. I would go but he’ll probably just fall asleep within the first 30 minutes and I’m sick of having to tuck him in!

10:13 pm
Home at last! Gonna draw myself a bath and read a few chapters of Gone Girl. It’s honestly so good! I’m only about half way through, but I’m pretty sure the husband did it. Good night!
