Yea to lounging.
Nay to the cold. And all this flu nonsense going about. One of you is going to make us sick, and we are going to become consumptive wrecks unable to do our jobs.
Yea to hosting political demonstrations at your house. Who knew you could fit that many people down with the struggle in one place?
Nay to clickers. Seriously teacher, if your mass lecture class was worth attending or paying attention to, we’d show up.
Yea to Chip puns being almost as awesome as Vaz puns.
Nay to not having any more reason to talk about Chip or his silly visor.
Yea to that kid who vomited all over himself at his fraternity’s initiation. You provided us with a week’s worth of up-chuck related chuckles.
Nay to budgets. Our vision now has Excel spreadsheet lines going across it.
Yea to austerity.
Nay to “membership only” house parties. You’re not that cool anyway.
Yea to creating new interpretive dances to 1970’s Nigerian music.
Nay to spilling red wine on your khaki pants while dancing.
Yea to reading only 80 pages of the assigned reading for class and being able to bluff your way through the class discussion.
Nay to increasing tuition. Stop shoving the cost on us.
Yea to the new ASOSU “Wear the Square” campaign. We are sick of paying more and more in tuition every year. We encourage you to get involved and to start agitating. We are down with the revolution. We have nothing to lose but our obscenely large amounts of debt. Students of OSU unite!
Nay to Marxism. Man was he off.
Yea to that drunk couple talking too loud, carrying on and making out at the bar at McMenamins on Friday night. Way to class up a family establishment.
Nay to never being able to do that because you are always trapped at work conjuring up the news and becoming a bitter old person.
Yea to traveling with friends across campus late at night. Stick to places you know and maintain situational awareness. Tell people where you are going and when you’ll get there. At minimum, stay on the phone with a friend if you are walking late at night. Steer clear of suspicious people and call the police immediately if something happens to you. Stay safe, we don’t like writing about bad things happening in our community.
Nay to creepers and criminals.
Yea to catching a quick snooze during class.
Nay to waking up to discover you drooled on yourself during your nap.
Yea to it being Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. Catch up on some sleep, study and do some community service in honor of the memory of a great American hero.
Nay to the kids who are just going to use this weekend to go on a three-day bender. Stay frosty children.
