Spring quarter is generally accompanied by the doldrums of laziness and procrastination. These deterrents become magnified on weeks such as this—midterm week. The library is generally filled with students bunched close to the window with longing looks on their faces. However, I am fortunate to not be tantalized by beautiful spring weather, because I’m allergic to just about everything nature has to offer. So I spent my week buried in the depths of the library away from things like pollen and ragweed and more closely to textbooks.

Spring quarter is also accompanied by the resurgence of varsity sports activity. As a member of the soccer team, I attend 6 a.m. practices on Tuesdays. I know 6 a.m. sounds like an awful time in theory, but in reality, it’s actually a refreshing time of day. It also helps that I scheduled all of my classes to start no earlier than 1 p.m. I did this on purpose because springtime tends to make me more drowsy as the quarter draws on. However, I do have the NBA playoffs to keep me entertained and occupied until school lets out. The playoffs also give me a subject to write about for the Campus Chronicle as a contributing sports writer.

Spring quarter can be tough, but I can see summer waiting for me in the distance. See you in June.
