We are so hardcore that we sleep on chairs in 19C in Brookdale.
I slept from 5:30 to 8:22 in the morning; it was amazing. But what was even more amazing was the conversation I had with the guard at 5:40 in the morning.
Guard: (concernedly) What's the matter?
Chana: (pretends to sleep)
Guard: (loudly) What's the matter?
Chana: (sleep mumble) Nothing's the matter.
Guard: Why are you here?
Chana: Okay. So I'm copyediting upstairs in room 20C, and we've been there till now, and I have to go to sleep but I need to be back upstairs in about three hours. So it makes a lot more sense for me to sleep here in the student lounge than return to my dorm at this hour.
Guard: But you need a visitor's pass to sleep here.
Chana: I am a student.
Guard: That doesn't matter. You still need a visitor's pass to sleep here when you belong in a different dorm.
Chana: I am a Stern student; this is the student lounge, therefore I should be able to sleep here.
Guard: (doubtfully) I guess it's okay for one night.
I then fall into an amazing sleep for less than three hours. It's good times.
Sara Lefkovitz, Nava Billet, Ariana Denenberg and Alisa Ungar all rock my world. You are all hardcore. Hardcore, I tell you! Dancing parties, intense discussions, unhappiness, differing tastes in music and other good times make my world.
And now I suggest that you read The Observer. Because it's good times. And its staff members are hardcore. And besides, this issue cost us sweat and blood and tears. I figure you'd want to see why.
We've got discussions about real freshmen (those of us who didn't go to Israel and who seem to have nevertheless survived), fashion shows, the fact that we are pining away for lack of intellectual discussion, we like our leaders and the fact that they can get along with one another, Israel's upcoming 60th birthday, the Mercaz HaRav tragedy, new interdisciplinary courses, a controversial documentary about circumcision, misleading "kosher" establishments, the MedEthics conjoined twins event and an attack upon Galinda's method of transport.
