A “thanks-so-much” dart to the birds outside my window that wake me up at 5 a.m.

From someone who loves nature until she can’t sleep.

A “this-is-an-animal-house” dart to all the people filling every seat in Carrier for midterms.

From a Carrier groupie who doesn’t want to study for exams on the library floor. 

A “you-go-mom-and-dad” pat to my parents for booking a trip to Barcelona for spring break.

From someone who needs a little Spain in her life.
