This type of behavior is just boggling my mind. Why do people come to the library to SLEEP?...And don’t even get me started on the gossip social hour that goes on here, starring the “I Love Everything Apple/MAC Sorority Club”. Not to mention, those girlfriends who bring splendidly smelling food to their significant other. EAT, something I’ve wanted to do since like 5pm. Can’t wait until Christmas…clogged arteries here I come!
Getting back to the point. People falling asleep in the library...Seriously!! Not only do they fall asleep but it’s the way in which they choose to do it. It’s as if they planned it all along. They pick the most relaxing, comfortable chair positioned in the quietest area of the entire building. Then what do they do? First, they take out all of their books, computer, snacks, cell phone, I-pods, I-phones, keys, drinks, etc. etc. Second, they place all of this stuff on the side table beside their chair. Third, they usually put on a hoody to cover their heads, take their shoes off and put their feet up on the ottoman. Which I may add is pretty gross. I don’t want to sit on a chair that had some unknown persons nasty feet junk on it.
Finally, they proceed to cuddle themselves in the nice, comfy leather chair, close their eyes and BAM they’re asleep. The before falling asleep part usually varies depending on a person, some might text, others might set an alarm, others might pretend they are readying. WTF? Why are you here? Don’t come here to take up some much needed comfortable library space during midterms. Go home, take a nap then come back and be productive. For the record, I tried to take a picture of this scene but someone just sat right in front of me and blocked my vision. Arrggg. Speaking of being productive, someoneee should get to that. I did waste quite some time observing human beings and their behavioral patterns at the Student Learning Center.
Three down, one more question to go in my sport history midterm>>“It cannot be denied that the integration of baseball was the right thing and far too long in coming. Nonetheless social change of this magnitude does not come without costs. Evaluate these costs and perhaps consider integration in a broader context than sports.” Once again, I’m challenged to write about my race and how we were looked upon as being “unworthy” of competing at the highest level of sport. If the so called “worthy” of the early 20th century could see me know. Female, brown, a golfer, in college and living in the South. Someone must be rolling over in his grave.
Any thoughts that could enlighten me?? If not, its oka I think “I GOT IT !!”
With that said, I’m out like a fat kid in dodge ball.
