To the guy in the Union dressed exactly like Waldo: I found you.

Dear out-of-state students: It’s not spring until I say so. Love, North Carolina.

Dear guy trying to pick me up in the library: It probably doesn’t help that you just Googled “How to make a girl fall in love in 30 days.”

Why do anarchists spend so much time in men’s public bathroom stalls?

To the two guys watching “Twilight” together on Saturday night: I saw you.

Dear physics TA: Was it worth the extra five minutes to write your entire announcement on the board in bubble letters?

To my suitemates: If you want to go balls to the wall, fine. Just make sure it’s not my wall. I have class in the morning.
