We do a lot of work here at Princeton. Probably didn’t have to remind you.
And yes, folks, Monday is the beginning of midterms, that most bitter of weeks when we hunker down and churn out page after page, pull all-nighters and give ourselves caffeine-induced heart arrhythmia, and have those long awkward silences in precept because, seriously, who would do the reading.

That’s why we here at The Ink want to help you out. We know what you’re going through, and we want to make you feel better, or at least less insane.
So we’re hosting a contest! You tell us how much work you have this upcoming week (in terms of numbers of pages, problem sets, and midterm exams), and the person with the crappiest week gets a shiny prize.
Oh, and you get massive bragging rights, of course. Because what do Princetonians love more than saying they have more work than one another?
The rules: Post everything you’ve got to do for midterm week in the comments below, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Be sure to detail how many pages you have to write, problem sets to solve, and midterms to take! And if you win, you have to prove it to us, so no funny business.) We’ll post the winners at the end of midterm week.
(Also, don’t have a mental breakdown before it’s over.)
