Let’s not dwell too much on the obvious: Spring Break is over and classes are back in swing. Both of those do suck, don’t they? But you’ll tough it out, chap! Think about all the fun you’ll have going through the new Facebook albums of that kid whose notes you borrowed in intro psych who went to Puerto san Playa Rico! And 32 days until Fling? Not too bad. Anyway, let’s talk about what’s happening:
