Speculation. A wave of excitement. Obsessive Twitter refreshing. Whether or not you’ve accepted your fate as a perpetual victim of the cold, you probably have your day-before-the-snow-day routine down. The real question remains to be answered: Do you know what you’re going to do with inches of cold white fluff on your snow day?
8:00 a.m.: Turn off your alarm. No class on a snow day!
8:07 a.m.: Rip your phone from the charger and throw it through the window onto Main Street because your alarm went off again.
9:00 a.m.: Finish listening to an RA lecture on defenestration after the flying phone incident.
9:44 a.m.: Make an appointment at the Christiana Apple Store to fix your cracked phone screen
10:20 a.m.: Abandon transportation efforts; retreat to Wawa to warm up.
10:55 a.m.: Successfully decide on an appropriate amount of food. Remember that they don’t accept dining points and frantically try to add funds to your debit card.
11:30 a.m.: Return to your dorm and play drinking games for no apparent reason.
12:00 p.m.: See a Facebook reminder for a snowball fight on The Green. Take a shot and run with reckless abandon through a blizzard.
12:04 p.m.: Your buzz freezes off. Excitement dwindles.
12:05 p.m.: SNOWBALL FIGHT!!!
1:30 p.m.: Forget why you came all the way across campus and join all of other freezing college students trying to find their way back to their dorms.
1:45 p.m.: Pause in the blizzard and assert your dominance with an iced coffee from Wawa.
2:30 p.m.: Finally make it back to campus. Frolic in the snowy mods.
2:32 p.m.: Attempt to re-enter your building. Realize that you lost your ID in the snow, never to be seen again.
2:45 p.m.: Post about your lost ID in all of the UD Facebook groups. Come to terms with the fact that all of the snow day posts will bury your call for help.
2:50 p.m.: Make the trek to the student services building. Realize it’s closed. Sit on the floor.
8:00 p.m.: Awaken from your five hour nap groggier than before. Find your BC ID in your other pocket. Salt the sidewalk with your tears of joy as you head back to your room.
8:05 p.m.: Share a photo on Instagram even though you’ve passed peak posting hours and try to pretend that the low quality is a filter and not because you threw your phone out the window. Watch an excessive amount of Netflix.
11:55 p.m.: Think about the fact that your snow day is almost over and there is school tomorrow. Chug water to try to reduce tomorrow’s hangover. Prepare to die.
