Frosh needs a rooster
To the Editor:
Considering this is my first one, I don't have an extensive
knowledge of what Frosh Week should be like. So far, I think
it's been really fun. I've met a lot of people, gone to a lot
of events and generally enjoyed my stay at Saugeen.
However, there's one thing about Frosh Week
I really can't stand: I am getting fed up with the insane wake-up
calls around here. I worked all summer and had to be awake at
6:30 a.m. and starting work at 8 a.m., so I consider waking
up at 8 a.m. sleeping in. Waking-up early is not a problem for
me, but there's a big difference between waking up on your own
or to your alarm clock and having a frickin' army walk through
your hall and bang on your door like they want to kick it in.
Take Shinerama Day [Saturday], for example.
It sounds like a lot of fun and it's a good cause. Maybe at
9 o'clock or so I'll get around to going, considering the buses
don't leave until 10, or so I've heard. Last night I was busy
trying to fit in around here, so I didn't get to bed until 4
a.m. I don't even DO breakfast and I don't care if it's free,
I can live off air as long as I get some sleep... which I didn't.
Although the sophs have been really great
this week, after getting a wake-up like that, I'm really tempted
to open my door and give them a mouthful of four letter words,
or go into a detailed story about how I have a rare disorder
known as lackofus dormitorius (the Latin word for sleep) and
if I get woken up like that I might die.
There really should be a better system for
waking people up. Play some music, do something fun, knock softly,
just please do something that doesn't involve so much adrenaline!
If I wanted to wake up, I'd set my alarm clock. Now excuse me
while I go back to sleep.
