A quick note that if you grow up in the north country it is called a snow day no matter what the event that causes school to suddenly and unexpectedly be cancelled is. Maybe some people would call today a Hurricane Day or a Disaster Day, but they are wrong. If it is a weekday and you sleep late, eat pancakes/waffles, and do nothing except watch TV and play video games all day than that is a snow day whether the cause for it is a blizzard, ducks raining from the sky, or bears attacking.
I come from Queensbury School District which notoriously is the last to close. Glens Falls is always closed before Queensbury is so I am used to waiting until the morning of a storm to find out if I can wear my pajamas all day. Simmons also has high standards for closure. It's typically the last of the Colleges of the Fenway schools to close because most of the students are on or near campus. So when Simmons closed last night I was overjoyed. The feeling of winning when you get a snow day apparently does not go away when you grow up.
I felt a little like I was cheating or skipping today, but it has made utterly wasting my time no less enjoyable. The view outside my window this morning wasn't that bad.
It was a little windy and rainy, but the weather won't be scary until later, if at all. Honestly, I could have walked to class, but I thank the powers that be that I could sit in my room today and do violent things to pixalated baddies. Everyone be safe in the storm and have a nice snow day.
If you need something to do, make me a list of things that do and do not go away when you grow up.
- Desire to eat grass
- Ability to do splits/cartwheels
- Licking yourself in the mirror
- Running away from your friends and laughing at them
- Ability to say the alphabet backwards as well as forwards
- Unashamedly showing people your belly button
- Will to eat bugs
- Touching other people's earlobes
Doesn't Go Away-
- Joy over snow days
- Randomly dancing
- Attachment to good stuffed animals/books
- Yelling “I didn’t touch it. It just broke!” after breaking something
- Tripping and pretending it never happened
- Occasionally crying piteously
- Need to play video games
- Competing needlessly with others whether they know it or not
