Nothing ever lives up to the hype.
The "Blizzard of '01" is another example, at least for everyone in Central Jersey. The whole thing is so typical - the university cancels classes on the day I have work and remains open the day I have four classes.
A lot of students were banking on a day off. Everything can be summed up by a line from an email I received this morning from Candice: "It's kind of funny how emad, rube and nancy were watching movies all carefree n' shit and now they have to go take their exams today."
