Thesis Shmesis

Wow, it’s been a while! It’s currently blizzarding a bit outside, and I’m not sure when it’s going to stop. I grew up on the border of New Hampshire, so I’ve been over the snow for years. It’s definitely not my favorite part about New England, but everyone else seems to love it. Check out Caroline’s post from earlier today for some pictures!

Last Sunday, Jeanie‘s sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, had an event at a local restaurant in Harvard Square. We danced the night away and were able to snap this fun “prom pose” picture! It’s always a good time spending time with other bloggers. The event was my fun for the weekend because I had a busy week coming up, both academically and extracurricularly. I would argue that this week was my worst week of the semester, with two midterms on Tuesday and Wednesday, along with meetings for student groups and lectures all in between. I think I slept a total of 6 hours during that two day window. Relatively, I have it pretty good since I’m not writing a senior thesis (hence the title of this post–Thesis Shmesis), which, depending on one’s concentration, have staggered due dates all this week, next week, and even post-spring break. After my exam on Wednesday, I was on an adrenaline kick and decided I would do something nice for my thesis-writing friends who live on my floor. I made a wall of encouraging memes, as well as printed out motivational posters and taped them to everyone’s door. It took me about an hour, which was a lot longer than I expected, but I think (well, at least I hope) that people were surprised. The decorations also added a lovely touch to our hallway.

A few hours after postering and finishing my project, I came home to a Facebook notification that had me tagged in a photo and read, “THANK YOU to whoever posted this sign, but James might be a bit confused why it’s on his door… :)” I realized I should be a bit more careful when running on such little sleep…check our the photo below.

Woops–wrong door!

I spent all morning yesterday filming a “Senior Spring Hype Video” as we are so unoriginally calling it for now. We had about 30 seniors show up to our film location in 10 minute intervals, and we asked them to dance, flip their hair, make faces, and act goofy in front of the camera. I’m in the process of editing all of the footage now into a 2 minute clip that we’re setting to fun music. We’re planning to release the video when we get back from spring break since most people will have much less work to do and can really bask in all the glory that is senior spring. We want people to really take advantage of our last few months here and this video will be an awesome way to welcome everyone back to campus. I’ll post the link when it’s up on YouTube!
