Go, Uh, Away?

Friday 2 March 2012

While the rest of the world embraces the Friday workday, I shall be at home. You see, at Western Michigan University, it's Spirit Day. Originally a day off for Homecoming, a few years ago Spirit Day was moved from Fall to Spring (i.e. Winter) Semester in order to load balance the holidays. And they tacked it on to the Friday before Spring Break.

So... Western's students get to celebrate their school spirit by, uh, leaving campus?

Still scratching my head over this one. But after I send Mrs. Dr. Phil off to work, I'll probably go back to bed and catch up on the sleep I've lost with exams this week.
