Let Comic Sans into your life!
Bwogline: On Monday, December 21, Jupiter and Saturn will be within 0.1 degrees (6 arcminutes) of each other in the sky! This conjunction is 400 years in the making, as the last one occurred in July 1623. Before that, the sight was documented in March 1226. The reason this is such a rare event is that the two planets have such long orbital periods: Jupiter takes 11.9 years to orbit the Sun and Saturn’s orbit is 29.5 years. Make sure to be scanning the sky after the Sun goes down for a once-in-a-lifetime event! (Astronomy Now)
Study Tip: Write your essays in Comic Sans, 11 point font, single-spaced. It’s a fun font and it has helped me write faster, but that also might be my mind playing tricks on me. Also, when I’m feeling down about how short it looks I just switch to Times New Roman, 12 point font, double-spaced, and immediately get a confidence boost, it’s great.

Procrastination Tip: Stretch! My back is quite literally terrible because of my horrible posture, and it really gets to me during finals. I like @dr.remix on TikTok for back stretches!
