First Snow Day of the Semester

First Snow Day of the Semester

This Wednesday, we all got emails saying that campus was open until noon, making all afternoon and night classes cancelled. This was joyous news to the majority of the student body. However, those of us with morning classes had to brave the snow. It started snowing early, and was really coming down by 11:00. A handful of PSU students have Wednesday classes starting well before noon, or even some from 11:15 to 12:05. Even though campus o cially closed at noon, classes like these still weren’t cancelled.

Once these students got out of class, they had to prepare to walk through campus, knowing that all of their peers were still warm and asleep in their beds. These few students looked like ies in the milk during the snowstorm. They were out there with the 10mph winds, heavy snow and freezing conditions.

From the outside looking in, the snow, along with the light re ecting o of it, made everything look pure white. For a part of the day, nothing was really visible except for the quickly-passing snowflakes. Many students refrained from leaving their dorms, for fear of the cold, or the possibility of falling into the banks, never to be heard from again. Popular and wholesome snow day activities included homework and keeping up with emails. People drank tea, and ate Hot Cheetos to stay warm. For those of us who did not use the snow day productively, it was also a great day for Net ix binging and catching up on some much needed sleep.

Snow days, even if they do not give us full days off, always offer some whimsical excitement. Everyone loves waking up to read that their classes are cancelled.

The downside to snow days is the make-up work. We all have a big week ahead of us, since chances are that we’ll be asked to complete a lot of work to make up for Wednesday, especially with Winter Carnival happening next week as well. Hopefully everyone takes a moment to mentally prepare themselves for the workload that is sure to come. Handling loads of homework is a college student’s bread and butter. We just need some co ee and some snacks, and with just a little procrastination, we always get our work done.

All we need is a little positivity to keep ourselves motivated, even in the days to come, where we will be awkwardly trudging through the snow. Those of us who made New Year's Resolutions to stay positive better remain true to their word! Positive vibes all 2018. Ending with positive vibes, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone, and stay warm!
