After nearly 84 consecutive hours spent within the walls of his apartment, student John Patterson will be venturing outside tomorrow, probably. Speaking from his living room couch, behind a haphazard pile of empty soda cans, pizza boxes, and half-eaten packages of uncooked Ramen noodles, Patterson revealed he had “pretty much decided” to attend the next day’s Psychology 130 discussion.
“I know I’ve been in kind of a slump,” said Patterson, stroking the four day’s worth of stubble on his chin. “But I’m mostly caught up with the reading now, and I bet I can get the notes when I run into Steve, as long as I manage to wake up before noon. And find some clean clothes, too,” he continued, glancing down at his sweatpants and dingy T-shirt.
“Even if I don’t make it to section, I’m definitely going to shower tomorrow,” Patterson concluded. “At least, I’m fairly sure I will.”
