PRIMAL SCREAM – TONIGHT @ MIDNIGHT OUTSIDE OLIN

screaming-person

Well, somebody fucked up.

Yesterday was the last (full) day of reading period since the first final is today (Tuesday) at 7:00 PM. There was supposed to be a Primal Scream at midnight. It ended up being sqwermy, me, and three other people chilling outside Olin screaming for ten seconds.

So we’re doing it again. Tonight. That means “when Tuesday turns to Wednesday, be outside Olin and scream.” Exactly at midnight. There will be a countdown.

Date: Tuesday, December 10
Time: 11:59 PM, passing into midnight and Wednesday, December 11
Place: Steps in front of Olin

Laughter Yoga Playshop

A message from Jon Lubeck ’14:

Come to a laughter yoga “playshop” on Monday the 9th at 6PM in the Buddhist House Meditation room. The “playshop” will be led by local laughter yoga teacher Mylene Poitras. It should last only about an hour.

Laughter yoga is a practice that combines laughter exercises with controlled breathing and calming movements. It produces endorphins that counter-stress and help bring about relaxation. It’s fun and should be a great way to help us forget about final stress.

Date: Today, December 9, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Place: Buddhist House Meditation room
Cost: FREEZ
