The Positives of Campus Construction

Positives of Construction

If you think the construction around campus is annoying now, just wait until the massive Northeast Triangle construction (eventually) starts. I use the Reiss walkway nearly every day, and its impending blockage is definitely going to mess with my flow. It’s a bummer to think that for the rest of my time at Georgetown, I won’t be able to use that shortcut. However, we’ll all get used to it soon enough, and these are some of the positives that will probably come of the change.

More exercise

You’ll never have to be worried about missing leg day again. Traveling between the north end of campus and places like Lau or even just the front gates will be a solid walk (as if you don’t walk enough by virtue of living here). So the way I see it, the construction’s just throwing you some added cardio.

Become the best planner ever

Because you’ll have to start building travel time into everything that you do, you’ll be sure that whenever you start your day, you know exactly where you’re going. If you live in Darnall or Henle, you’ll become especially adept at planning when you have to leave for events.

You now have a great excuse for not wanting to go somewhere

If there’s a party that you know will make you feel like the man in the gif, there’s a perfectly legitimate reason for turning your friends down. “Sorry guys, it’s definitely too much effort to walk through campus to meet you at that party.” Unless you really are that thirsty.

So even though you might not be the biggest fan of construction, there are plenty of benefits for all of us. Yay campus development!

Michelle Obama Birthday Preview

Tonight there will be a not-so-secret birthday dance party just a few miles from our very own Hilltop. Who exactly is the birthday girl, you might ask? None other than the first lady herself, Michelle Obama.

Nifty, nifty, look who’s fifty!

For her 50th birthday, which was actually on Friday, Michelle has invited her guests to enjoy “Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert” tonight and has asked them to wear comfy shoes and eat before they arrive.

While those of us at 4E would suggest adding some more food to this soiree – a Wisey’s sandwich, perhaps – we certainly love to bust a move, and we feel this party is certain to be a hit. Over the past year, rumors have circulated that singers like Adele and Beyonce have agreed to perform at the bash.

Beyonce side note: Queen Bey especially has a great relationship with the Obamas. She was with them at almost every momentous occasion during President Obama’s two terms, including President Obama’s swearing-in at the Inauguration.

Beyonce. White House. The Obamas breaking it down on the dance floor. Need I say more?

For a little preview of what this night has in store, take a look at the birthday girl here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hq-URl9F17Y
