“Rabbit’s clever,” said Pooh thoughtfully.
“Yes,” said Piglet, “Rabbit’s clever.”
“And he has Brain.”
“Yes,” said Piglet, “Rabbit has Brain.”
There was a long silence.
“I suppose,” said Pooh, “that’s why he never understands anything.”
—A A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
Oh, bother. It’s happening again.
We’ve blinked our eyes momentarily and the semester has already transitioned into full swing. Assignments due, proposals thought out, and hopefully, not for many of us (queue in theme from Psycho) group projects have gotten together! OK, maybe I was a little too dramatic there. Group work in college isn’t that bad *nose grows. *
Let me officially greet you, fellow Brooklyn College student/ staff/ alumni/ late night web surfer. Bundle up, literally and figuratively; it’s snowing and cold, and the turbulence of pre mid semester jitters might knock you out of your seat.
Here are some important dates and events to keep in mind:
-March 6th, 2014 is the English Majors’ Counseling Office Open Mic. Whether you wish to share or not, join us for hours of fun. Sign up sheet will be posted soon at 3416 Boylan.
-Submissions to the annual literary magazine, “The Junction” are being accepted. Don’t delay, submit today!
-The last day to drop classes is February 18th!
-Graduating? Don’t forget to file for graduation! The last day is March 14th. There will also be a special “Salute to the seniors” basketball game against St. John’s on Tuesday February 18th—check it out!
And so, there it is. Before you know it, we’ll be dragging the remnants of our bodies into morning classes and keeping our eyelids open with the over roasted grinds of coffee at night. Is it all worth it? —Most definitely. Don’t think too much; understand things.
