The drab, gray winter sky has a way of making life
seem like a monotonous hamster-wheel of class, as
you walk around shivering and trying to stay awake
while studying. There's no reason to feel like a depressed,
heavily padded rodent. All you have to do is mix it up a lit-
tle. Here are some things to do in our sweet little town of
Ann Arbor:
You know that funny friend of yours who can cheer you
up? Well, there are people paid to be way funnier than that
friend. Otherwise known as stand-up comics, some of the
best performers are found here. Ann Arbor Comedy
Showcase (314 E. Liberty St., 996-9080
www.aacomedy.com) has amazing comics perform

ticket with your student ID. You can go to the Heidelberg

One of the coolest lesser known things about the University
is how some of the biggest names in comedy perform for
free in various dorms every other Friday night, thanks to
Big Ticket Production's Underground Comedy Live
Doing something nice for somebody else gives you a
major mood boost. Luckily for you, the University is a
hotspot for organizations that just want to spread the love.

(www.umich.edu/-dorak), is a great way to anonymously be
nice, and the website lists random acts of kindness you can
do on your own. Service organizations, such as Circle K
(www.umcirclek.org), The Detroit Project (www.thedp.org)
or Habitat for Humanity (www.umhabitat.org), provide
great ways to volunteer. For more service organizations,
check out wwwumich.edu/clubs.html.
Babies like to wiggle a lot, and unlike their fondness
for soiling their underwear, I think this is one tendency
where we should follow their lead. In other words, dance!
