Letters:
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.
