Since most of my classes at are school aren’t meeting anymore, I spend a lot of the day in the library doing homework and projects. So whenever I get anxious, I take a five minute break to distract myself and to do some deep breathing. It’s a very effective method, but it has some drawbacks. You see, I have been systematically maxing out the number of free New York Times articles you read a month on the computers.
As of right now, you can’t access the paper on Computers One, Three, and Five*, and by the end of the week, Computer Two will be out of commission as well. Now, I know that this is the sort of thing that I should feel guilty about. I mean, anyone who gets on those computers and tries to do legitimate research for a class will be straight out of luck. But I kind of makes me proud. I always say that The New York Times is my favorite things ever, and now more than ever, I have quite a bit of proof.
On a completely unrelated note, I have been biting the heads off of gummy bears for the last ten minutes, so as to put them out of their misery before my molars crush them to bits. I like to think that this means that I am being humane, but it’s really just because it makes me a tiny bit powerful. A psychologist would have a field day with that tidbit of information.
*To be clear: I have not read 60 articles. Whenever anyone accesses the paper on that computer, the website counts it.
