Let’s face it- it’s Saturday. This is the day where you pull out your books and laptop, look angrily at them for a few minutes, and then put them away before turning on Netflix for 5 hours and then frantically scrambling to catch up on our beloved Sunday/Panic Day.
And I am here, and ready to help you procrastinate, because let’s face it- who doesn’t love to procrastinate?
Catching Up at RIT
The Avett Brothers!
And for those of you who sadly missed the concert like me, go here.
Alright, discussion time! RIT has just announced that we will soon be getting a new college of Health and Nutrition. Who’s excited about that?
Some Fun Things Going on In the World
Oscar Meyer is creating an App that will wake you up with the sound and smell of bacon… I feel like almost every college student in America probably wants this right now…
And if you haven’t had enough of “Let it Go” yet, here is another version for you!
Catching Up in the Real World Because it’s Never Bad to know what is Going on Off-Campus…
This video went viral and broke hearts…
John Green does his best to try to explain the very serious (and rather confusing) problems occurring in the Ukraine here.
And if you don’t know what is going on in Venezuela, this site gives a fairly good rundown of what is occurring.
Some Apps to Distract You
For you art majors there is Fontli, which is pretty much a Instagram for typography, and it is a great way to show off your work and see other people’s cool fonts.
Disney has recently released an app where you can watch Disney movies anywhere, which is pretty cool (plus you get The Incredibles for free with this app- who doesn’t want to watch The Incredibles for free?)
What is Going On at RIT this Weekend
If you decide to toss Netflix aside and leave your dorm this weekend, here are a few things that you can do:
- ToraCon 2014 at the SAU
- Art House Hot Cocoa Sale at the Tiger Statue (7 am-12 pm)
- Soleo Hackathon at CIMS 2240 (5-11:45 pm)
- NTID’s Got Talent at the SDC 1300/1310 (6-9 pm)
- Shades of Africa II at the Vignelli Gallery (6-9 pm)
- ToraCon 2014 at the SAU
- eXpresso at NRH 1250 (11 am-1 pm)
And finally… don’t forget that it’s Daylight Savings so you will be losing an hour of sleep (I know- the treachery of it all!) And if you still haven’t had enough distractions (Homework… Who needs that nonsense?) Here are some links to more articles written by my fellow awesome Behind the Bricks analysts:
