Stop, breathe, read. Here’s how
Quick and Dirty is an occasional series in which we ask our regular Opinion contributors their thoughts on a particular topic. This week, we asked them to share their thoughts on reading week – that twilight period between the end of classes and the beginning of finals where most Columbians are overworked, overcaffeinated and under-rested.
Ben Rashkovich, Canon contributor: I’ve had a tradition, once I’m done or nearly done but with lots of free time, of going into Butler with a friend and watching Netflix or just eating while everyone else studies. Last semester I brought an entire homemade cherry pie and a quart of milk and watched Breaking Bad until like 6 a.m. with my roommate.

To the tune of 12 Days of Christmas:
Daniel Garisto, Opinion editor:
Daniela Quintanilla, Blogger: Best part of reading week: The best part of reading week is always Orgo Night. My advice to the overworked, over-caffeinated Columbian: Take deep breaths. Buy yourself a treat. And get off of Facebook!
Emma Finder, Opinion editor: This is actually one of the best times of year to bond. Go on library (friend) dates, make the most of this time with friends before break, commiserate over coffee or soup.
