27 activities for 100 days

| Friday, February 7, 2020

At the exact moment this inside column is published online, the senior class at Notre Dame will officially have 100 days until graduation. This makes me feel a lot of things — sad is definitely at the top of the list — but that is not the point of this inside column. The point is someone needed to write an inside column, and tonight is the 100 Days Dance, so it’s on my mind. Sad is not the point!

I recognize that some of these activities are inevitable and some are silly, but it’s my column so please enjoy a list of 27 to-do’s I hope to check off before I graduate (in no particular order).  

  1. Go inside every building on campus
  2. Have an official Kraft mac and cheese postgame
  3. Figure out who the commencement speaker is 
  4. Find two long formal dresses (yeah that’s right, Dome Dance, baby!)
  5. Finish writing my thesis 
  6. Attend class at Saint Mary’s with Maria
  7. Minimize time doing homework while engaging thoroughly in my classes
  8. Maximize time watching “The Bachelor” with my roommates
  9. Purchase an amazing and humongous floppy hat for spring break
  10. Witness one small-scale-viral Observer TikTok
  11. Go climbing in Duncan
  12. Spend an evening at Four Winds Field
  13. Go to another basketball game
  14. Welcome the new Viewpoint Editor 🙂
  15. Convert aforementioned spring break floppy hat into an appropriately high-fashion hat for the Kentucky Derby 
  16. Walk the St. Joe River Lights
  17. Learn how to make buffalo chicken dip
  18. Attend a Friday noontime concert in LaBar
  19. Get asked to Observer Prom
  20. Line dance at Cowboy Up
  21. Host a craft night
  22. Complete our house mood board
  23. Hang out with my sister (and her friends) (shoutout to the quad!)
  24. Visit the Indiana Dunes
  25. Listen to my 5,000th hour of Philip Glass
  26. Play pick up basketball in Duncan 
  27. Eat more Southwest Salad

Please feel free to reach out at [email protected] if you would like to join me in crossing off anything on this list or if you have more suggestions! I will be printing this out and adding it to our house mood board to cross off item #22 immediately.
