Finals week is without fail one of the most stressful weeks during the year so why not take an hour out of your day to come to The Relaxation Station to release some of that stress and anxiety! On Friday, December 9th from 8:00-12:00 p.m. in Transitions, UPB is putting on a FREE event which includes aqua massage beds, a meditation station, food, coffee and other relaxing activities. I know that when I’m stressed I always try to find ways to calm myself down so why not take advantage of and event that does just that! Instead of emptying your wallet by paying for a massage and countless cups of coffee at Starbucks, come enjoy all these things for free right on campus. I hope to see you there, THIS Friday at 8pm in Transitions!

Buckle down, fellow students. We’re in the home stretch.
And stretching, we are.
I must say that I have seen the number of circles under eyes increasing recently. Carrier is slowly but surely becoming more crowded (I know because I was there till past midnight last night, and it was still hopping and popping). People are having increasingly tense conversations on the phone (although not all of them about academics).
It is here where I would like to make a short, but I feel, important, public service announcement about the conversations we wish to have in libraries.
I propose that we all collectively agree to stop having intensely personal conversations on the first floor of the library.
I know that for one, I cannot concentrate when people are talking about the newest birth in their family, or their relationship crisis (usually at an obnoxious volume), especially when I am wading through an especially dry piece of literature, such as Dryden (no, I didn’t make that name up- he’s a real 18th century English poet. And yes, I love being an English major).
So I plead and beg of you. For all of our sakes, for all of our sanity, for all of our GPAS (okay, maybe I’m being a little melodramatic), don’t have life-altering conversations on your phone in the library.
