“Is it winter or is it spring?” It’s the question March brings with it each year. As nice as an answer might be, we think there’s something special about being in-between. Look at yourself! You’re in between childhood and adulthood, and you’re pretty great. This transitional magic is what makes the Michigan League so special: it’s your in-between place! Walking through campus? Grab an iced coffee from Beanster’s and a banana from U-Go’s and enjoy that March sun. Coming from North? Pick up a burger from Wendy’s to energize you as you trek through the lingering snow.

You’ve got to finish this practice exam but your stomach is growling so loud you can’t hear yourself think. The worst part is that eating a meal now will inevitably lead to an unplanned nap at your booth, but snacks are doing nothing for you. Wendy’s has a third option: the Right Price Right Size menu. They’ve got options that are just big enough to fill you up and cheap enough to keep your wallet full. So finish that practice exam and grab a grilled chicken wrap to celebrate that someone’s looking out for you.
Maybe you’ve started packing; maybe you’re waiting until the day you leave campus. If anything, you’re likely mentally checking out for Winter Break. You can only imagine how great it’s going to be to lounge around for two weeks and (hopefully) forget about all of your responsibilities. The last thing you want to interrupt this is suddenly remembering you didn’t return your rental textbook or that you’ve left your lucky underwear back at school, so here’s a short to-do list for your last day or two on campus:
Student organizations can now apply for office space in the Michigan Union, Michigan League, Pierpont Commons, and Trotter Multicultural Center to have space from fall 2015 through winter 2017. Space applications are reviewed by the student-led Office Space Allocation Committee (OSAC).

Why do you think Twitter limits you to 140 characters? Because after writing 140 characters worth of your essay, your brain is going to want to check Facebook or Yik Yak again. Don’t fight it, embrace it by stopping every 140 characters to give in to your impulses. Soon checking Twitter will feel less like an impulse and more like a check on your to-do list!

The weather is getting colder as Michigan prepares for hibernation season, meaning that going somewhere to study may soon be the only time you’ll spend outdoors. Therefore, finding the right study spot is critical for the sake of your fingers, toes, and nose.

So kick back, grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and let the inspiration find you.
