Nothing like a Snow Day

There is nothing quite like the unequivocal joy that is the snow day. We all remember the feeling from the days of our childhood. Waking up to the realization that you have slept much longer then what is to be expected for a school day. Jumping to your window to see a white field blanketing as far as the eye can see, reflecting the sun’s rays to give an almost revered glow to the outside world. It’s magical… just the idea of such an occurrence makes me nostalgic for the “simpler times”
Yet until a few weeks ago, the college incantation of the snow day had thus far eluded me. The year before my arrival at CUA, the campus experienced what is infamously known as “Snowpocalypse” in which an entire week of classes was lost to mother nature’s flurry fury. From what I heard it was something that those students had extremely fond memories of, an extra break that allowed students to unwind and just have fun. Thus I was excited to say the least at the thought of my own college snow day experience. Yet, I was to learn the meaning of patience. In 7 semesters at CUA I did not see a single snow day. In fact in that time I had more “Hurricane Days” off from school then we even had dustings of the powdery stuff. I really thought my chance for a College Snow day was at an end, until a few weeks ago.
If finally happened, and it was so worth the wait. The movies, the sledding, the hanging with friends it was a memorable snow day because not only did you have a reprieve from academic responsibilities but your surrounded by good friends with nothing to do but have fun. Sledding, snowball fights, everyone seemed to be in the mood to have a good time which made it and extremely memorable day. My advice to all of you, if you indeed ever get the opportunity to experience a snow day in college, please take advantage of it. It is important to keep up with school work but make sure you get out and take in the atmosphere a little too.
