I can't wait for this quarter to be over. I only have three weeks left now, which is so close, and yet so far. This upcoming weekend should be a nice break, I'll just have to get through the week first. I'm working every single night until Friday, and on Tuesday there are going to be about 500 crazy drunks in my building who I will be charged with making sure don't die of hypothermia or alcohol poisoning AKA Mirror Lake Night.
For anyone who doesn't know about Mirror Lake Night, it is this awesome night of the year for everyone in the world who isn't a Resident Advisor on Ohio State's Campus, where students jump in to Mirror Lake during Beat M!ch!g@n Week to awaken the spirit of Woody Hayes so that we will be victorious over M!ch!g@n in the Saturday football game. I jumped as a freshman and it was one of the most awesome and memorable experiences of that whole year, and will probably be in my top 5 college experiences total. Just to put things in perspective, last year, approximately 12,000 people went to the Mirror Lake Jump between the hours of 8 pm and 1 am, either as jumpers or spectators. It is unreal.
Except that when you are the RA, you are the person actually in charge of making sure hundreds of freshman who don't know any better don't drink themselves into a blacked out stupor and then try to swim in the lake because they will catch hypothermia and die, and it is never fun to have to call an ambulance for freshman, because it is usually for stupid reasons.
But as a bonus, I won't have any classes the following Wednesday, so even though I'll be stressed out all day/night/until 4 am when I'm allowed to sleep on Tuesday, I can spend all of Wednesday at the mall, drinking coffee and shopping so that my sanity returns to me.
I hope the government never bans caffeine.
