The 15 Stages of Reading Week

If you are reading this post, congratulations, you have made it to the winter reading week 2014. At first you will feel like:

cookie-monster

You’ll do things like this:

rudd-friends1

and this:

dance

Until you get an email from your professor reminding you of that essay that is due after the break and you will cry.

Before you start that essay, you will take at least 20 naps:

tired

Once you actually start to do your work and you will ask yourself this:

community

Until you hit that point of utter boredom when you can’t take anymore work.

disgust

So you meet up with your friends from back home and revert back to childhood. This may include copious amounts of hot chocolate, shopping, slumber parties, snowball fights and catching up.

You’ll eventually run out of fun activities to do and you find yourself staring at that familiar site. (Netflix anyone?)

You’ll realize you’re halfway through reading week and you will be like this:

sad-baby

But then you will reconnect with your long lost love “bed” and everything will be ok.

You check the course outline one more time to make sure you didn’t forget anything (we all know you did, like that essay due on Monday)

But you will manage to squeeze in one more impromptu dance party on Sunday night (these are always necessary)

But before you know it, it’s 8am on Monday and you’re back to sitting in a lecture hall counting down the days until summer.
