It's chilly and it's exam week--also known as staying in, wrapped in a blanket, and "burning my eyebrows" over PowerPoint slides. With the sudden change in season, I hope you all had the chance to get your boots and sweaters for the upcoming fall. Remember to stock up on tea, cocoa, and soup for when you'll need your dose of daily warmth!
