As someone whose commute regu-
larly takes her across the Diag from
Chem to Angell, I sympathize with all
cellphone-using pedestrians. Sure, I
don't flip open my phone every time I
leave a class. But I, too, know the lone-
liness of a 40-second walk in the bitter
cold.
So I wasn't surprised when I was
walking past the Natural Science
Building, trailing behind a girl whose
ear was pressed firmly to her cell-
phone, chatting away in a voice obnox-
iously echoing with exclamations of
"He didn't!" "No way!" "Um, yeah!"
I was surprised, though, when
halfway through her righteous Val-
ley Girl tirade, her phone rang. She
stopped. Looked around. Pressed a
button. "Hello?"

at Starbucks on State Street. As I was
about to cross the Diag, I noticed a
group of girls sitting under a tree, all
clad in black, with several piercings
each. I was about to pass them when
one girl yelled: "Hey, bitch."
Seeing as there was no one else
around, I casually asked why she had
said that.
The only response I got was:
"Because I hate you. Fuck you."
Unfortunately, I took the same
route home a few nights later, only
to see the same girl walking toward
me, this time with her boyfriend. I
quickened my pace and kept my eyes
straight ahead, hoping she wouldn't
notice me,
No such luck.
As we were about to pass each
other, she whispered somethingto her
boyfriend, who proceeded to let out

a malicious laugh and then spit at my
feet.
I paused, contemplating the dis-
tance between my shoe and the ooz-
ing saliva. It was just long enough for
the rest of the gang to launch a series
of catcalls in my direction. I wish I
could say I took them down, one by
one-.
Let's be honest: At 57" and 125 lbs.,
I didn't stand a chance.
Needless to say, during finals week
I will be studying on South University
Avenue.

Just taking a break
I was in my dorm room studying
when a friend came to visit me. She
wanted to see how my research paper
was going.
"How's the studying going?" she
asked.
"Oh, great," I told her.
Then she looked at my laptop's
screen and said: "Are you watching
YouTube videos?"
