Reasons Why Special Collections is the Best Place to Study

1) The chairs around the tables have arm rests.
2) There are cool looking old books all over the place.
3) There are cool looking old people all over the place.
4) There are sculptures and other cool art works all over the place.
5) I'm studying next to a griffin.
6) There's a grandfather clock in the corner that chimes ever 15 minutes.
7) This quote is sitting on the table, "Reading makes immigrants of us all -- it takes us away from home, but more important, if finds homes for us everywhere." - Hazel Rochman.
8) The kid sitting at the table next door has a cell phone that keeps making noises that make me feel like I'm in an early 90s video game.
9) Airplane mode for the cell phone. Which of course means airplane mode for Sam. Airplane mode for Sam means I pretend I'm a little boy laying on my stomach on the swings who is pretending to fly an airplane. Airplane mode makes life more exciting. Especially when Maggie shakes the table to simulate turbulence.


  1. Gotta love that Cyrus Dallin and Maynard Dixon stuff. Oh, and #9 doesn't make sense. Perhaps you've officially pulled one too many all-nighters.

  2. Arm rests are a definite must. Also I have to agree with Mauri about number 9. Perhaps you are just flying a little too far over our heads for it to make sense.
