Reports from the Library Etiquette and Procrastination Police


See? I'm procrastinating. That's why the comptar must go bye-bye at the library ...

This was taken inconspicuously (I hope) using Photobooth xD

I've been locked up in the library this past week, studying hard for exams of course. Cultural Anthropology was much better than expected. For one, I am never reading an article to take in-depth notes on again! (There are 4 articles a day + textbook chapters T__T). Yay! :D

Physiology was erm ... a critical reading test. Multiple choice? Awesome, right? NO! Answers A - G, basically no curve, and if you can't differentiate between the letters A and G in ATP and GTP, you miss 4 points. D': *grumble* We'll see how that goes. But it was nice because this was the first science exam in college I took without having a heart attack. Sad, but true.

Okay. So this library business. I assume there are some nice rules of etiquette American society follows, and strange violations that occur:

1) (More) Talking in the Quiet Study (than anywhere else)
Okay, this one occurs all the time ... but seriously? Take the convo outside. There are crazed, caffeine addicts who are trying to squeeze words out of their papers and cram some last-minute juicy knowledge into their heads. Most often, the language in question isn't even English. Go be diverse somewhere else.

2) Laughing to yourself while studying
School and academics are not a laughing matter. If you're silently sobbing to yourself, I'll understand. But laughing? What could be so funny about your article that you're blinding yourself with tears of mirth? Really!? Yeah, you, guy with the purple metallic iPod and rainbow highlighters o_O

3) Girls who talk in the bathroom. For 10 minutes. While you have to pee really badly.
There were these two girls the other day who decided to talk about their Valentine's Day woes. In the bathroom stalls like girls often do. But when there are only 3 stalls and one of them is filled with le ickly, please don't. There was a line of 5 people waiting to relieve their anxiety. And yet you keep chattering. Nonstop. No wonder you had woe... what? *grumble*

4) Acrobatic nappers
There are people who manage to contort themselves into the strangest positions. No, not gymnasts, but nappers who overtake the olive green couches. They are SMALL couches. I have seen people half-falling off with their heads dangling off the sides, people who are near 6 feet squish into a 3 feet space, and those who manage to become like liquids - taking the shape of their containers. Yeah ...

More not-studying-at-the-library photos:
Continuing the topic of total randomness (also a way to sneak in some Photobooth pics I never remember to upload) ...

My boyfriend and I are silly : ) This is the wall of posters in my dorm room ^__^ I should show you guys sometime. This is a prime example of procrastination.
And now to write a 2-page paper on ... a topic I haven't even read about :D What's in your wallet procrastination list?

I don't go to the library anymore, outside of just napping. Too many violations for my tastes.
