Right now, I’m listening to a friend’s playlist on Spotify, deciding I won’t finish my reading for class, and am daydreaming about my study abroad plans for my junior year. My boyfriend is sitting on the couch beside me playing Stellaris, my friends are here too, mostly chilling, working on their own things.
Many Sunday nights have been like this recently. The windows of Jewett or open so we can hear chatter coming up from the Quad. Usually, we would be playing Dungeons and Dragons or Only War, but we haven’t been playing as much lately. We all know why, but no one is talking about it.
Limbo has settled over us, and it’s looking more and more like we won’t be playing Only War tonight, like we’d planned. But other than that, the mood is pretty light. We have Halloween candy, a fruit bowl (finally), and a new game to play.
I’ll write more about the situation once it’s out in the air. Right now, it’s sitting between everyone, so the mood is poisoned just a little bit. We’ll see how it goes.
