The S**t We Had To Deal With At McKeldin Library At 3 A.M.

McKeldin Library, contrary to popular belief, is not just a place to hit on the cute librarian; it’s a Terps safe haven of quietness and overpriced printing. But what happens when you enter McKeldin Library at 3 a.m. to do a paper you forgot about? The Black Sheep went to find out and logged our best moments.

3:30 a.m.:
We approach the library; an ominous presence is felt as we enter, almost as if to harken a moment of dread. We slowly realize, everything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

3:33 a.m.:
We pass Footnotes and spot several poor souls sleeping their night away in peace when they should be cramming for the exam they definitely didn’t prepare for. We walk up the stairs to get to the second floor.

3:40 a.m.:
We try logging into an available computer.

3:44 a.m.:

The computer is preparing windows.

3:57 a.m.:

The computer is still preparing windows.

4 a.m.:

Spotted: White board with what we can only assume is the secret to the elixir of life… or calc. Either or.

4:05 a.m.:

Holy shit, I hate this computer.

4:10 a.m.:
Opened Microsoft word to begin the project due in 5 hours.

4:56 a.m.:

Update: Found a font I like.

6:00 a.m.:

OMG, I’m done!

6:04 a.m.:
Alright, time to print this bad boy.

6:06 a.m.:

Fuck, I don’t have enough money.

6:08 a.m.:

Adding money to my account.

6:09 a.m: 

Wait. Shitttttttttttttttttttttt. 

6:17 a.m.: 

Found these in the bathroom. Don’t know if it’ll be enough to print, but by God we’re trying this. 

7:15 a.m.:

We leave McKeldin and think to ourselves, ‘Let’s not do this again,’ despite knowing fully well this will happen again.
