Off the cuff — Quick takes on life from our editors


Rules, bleh

I think if professors don’t want to make their students suffer through a final during finals week, they shouldn’t have to. Especially if it means that final is scheduled for 7:30 a.m.


Mr. Staben

Perhaps someone should send him a box of the discontinued “flagship” shirts that are sitting in a UI warehouse somewhere. The SBOE would probably intercept the shipment.


Kanye West

“College Dropout,” “Late Registration” and “Graduation” are some of the best albums I’ve heard, no joke. I listened straight through each one this break. Ye’s music hasn’t been the same since his mom died.


A slippery slope

Today, for the first time ever, I willingly ordered coffee and drank the whole thing. Cheers to the next two weeks.


Homework over break

Isn’t as bad when you don’t have class on Monday.



Had an amazing week back home with people I care a lot about.


What the rain

Southeast Alaska, a temperate rainforest, is my second home but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen more rain than I did driving from Boise to Moscow on Sunday. It rained practically the whole way.


Fleet Foxes

If you have never listened to this band, you probably should. They get better every time I start listening to them again.


South Bend or North Pole?

The ND game I attended was the coldest in more than 20 years. Swirling snowstorms and intense winds in 20-degree weather (wind chill made it feel like sub-10) made me grateful for the enclosed, warm, cozy Kibbie Dome.


False Flattery

I am always excited to receive emails from someone saying they are thankful for talented student journalists like me — until I notice that it is addressed to Sydney. Sydney, wherever you are, someone who writes spam emails thinks you are fantastic.


Three more weeks

Then the real fun starts.


Productivity to the max

After only one day back from break I’m feeling more productive than I have in a while — partly due to necessity from procrastination over break. Let’s hope I can ride out this productivity surge for the next three weeks.
