Summer in Pittsburgh


At last, the brilliant sunshine and warm weather of summer has landed in the ‘Burgh, bringing us amazing weather over the past week. Obviously, the 75 degrees and clear blue skies send us running towards Schenley Park instead of Hillman Library, making it even harder to flip the switch from ‘worry-free relaxation’ mode to ‘study-everything information overload’. This past Monday was the hardest as most described it appropriately as the ‘Break Hangover’. After class from 8 – 3pm, we all had the intention of studying and preparing, but the majority of us went home exhausted, napped and felt insanely guilty about it! Hopefully, with that flushed from our systems, we’re ready to buckle down once again and be totally absorbed in our studies!
