Vending Distractions

Hi folks!

It's a lovely time of year--the rush to the end of the semester! Keep in mind, though, that there are bits of enjoyment and encouragement all around you to help you combat the stress that accompanies finals week. Two things in particular might be of interest to you:

First, a series of "poetry puzzles"--decoratively written classics of modern poetry, chopped into individual word fragments. Can you piece the poem back together without "cheating" (aka looking the poem up on the internet)? Or can you make your own poem out of the pieces? Try it and find out!!

Next, and perhaps more exciting: the first set of offerings from XU's own In the Loop crochet club! Check out these adorable amigurumi figurines for sale in the machine now. But hurry--they're bound to sell out quickly!

Hang in there--and keep making!
