Happy Monday, Harvard! Welcome to the last week of classes (read: three days)! There are only three days of classes left this semester (we obviously have not been counting down for the past few weeks). That is a scary short amount of time before we really need to get down to business for finals, but if you start now, you just might be able to convince your TFs that you need extensions on all of your final projects. That will leave plenty of time to start and finish some new show on Netflix during reading period.

IN THE D-HALLS

Lunch:

Chicken Basil Pesto Panini

Green Garbanzo Falafel Sandwich

Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

Dinner:

IN THE ATMOSPHERE

It’s going to be in the mid-50s today, but bring a jacket because it’s supposed to be cloudy with a chance of rain later in the afternoon.
