    Angry To the kid sitting across from me in the library..

    Alright guy. I know you are having trouble with your homework. I hear your frustration (literally). Shaking your hands in the air and quietly cursing the world isn't going to help. You're stoked up on your Mocha Latte and you can't sit still. You're so nervous that you won't be able to get the assignment done by noon that you're legs are jittering uncontrollably, shaking the table that you chose to share with me. Oh no. Something went wrong with your work on your laptop.



    I hope your computer is OK.

    Your sighs of frustration are constantly disruptive. Good, stand up, stretch and take a moment to collect yourself while you take a short break.

    Well, that was a very short break. You're back already and the frustration ensues. Is it too obvious for me to move to another table? I may have to soon, for my own sanity's sake. But don't worry about me. I've got nothing important to do on my list today.

    Now, the only question that remains is... is this person... YOU?

    Well if you're sitting in the library typing this, you don't really have anything important to do, do you? Or if you do, start doing it!

    I've got enough of my own problems (procrastination, motivation, etc.). Sitting on Cyclone Fanatic certainly isn't helping. I know that.

    I don't need anyone else's problems construed unto (onto?) me.

    Time for a lunch break. CHEAP FOOD ON CENTRAL CAMPUS! Woot!

    *Note to self: Find a more remote setting to perform my Cyclone Fanatic dissection when I return.

    I just recently found out that this "library" that everyone speaks of is in fact the rest area where I took more than my fair share of naps.

    Re: To the kid sitting across from me in the library..

    The best place to study is the upstairs of the Presbyterian Church right behind the Design building. Internet, soda machine, it's empty and extremely close to campus.
    Now that I'm out of school i feel I should share this place with others...
