Overheard in Wu:

Sophomore boy: My vomits were pretty clean last night.

Overheard in English class:

Professor to student: You have defeated Satan with logic.

Overheard in Frist:

Sorority biddy: Daddy it’s so hard to make connections here because 60% of people are on financial aid.

Overheard on Blackboard:

Freshman lass: I do not understand why Zola feels the need to make the misery of the Raquin’s into something negative. They are of lowly castes so if you deprive them of their misery, they have nothing. Having misery must be better than not having any, for god almighty endowed them with their misery.

Overheard on Princeton FML:

Princeton student: I’ve decided that it’s just not worth the pain. I’m throwing out my old, safe plan for life and trusting my future to the wind and my heart. MLWBDifficult, but MLWBMOwn.

Overheard in Los Angeles:

Kobe Bryant: When I’m out there being aggressive and doing my thing, [Pau Gasol] needs to follow suit and just be just as aggressive which is hard for him because it’s kind of against his nature. But I think tonight was a good step ... Even when he was in Memphis and he was the go-to guy, he was always very nice. Very white swan. I need him to be black swan.
