Cornerstone’s Guide to Awesome Fun-Ness: The I-really-need-to-get-out-of-my-dorm edition

You may not feel stir crazy yet, but I promise you, it’s coming. Oh, it’s coming. Many a tear was shed during last year’s prolonged winter. My roommate bought mega boxes of fruit loops, and together we gorged on episodes of Pretty Little Liars, but even ABC Family couldn’t cure our winter woes. So get out while you can. Run around and be wild and happy and free before the snow traps you and forces you to engage in a very intense relationship with Netflix.
