Snow Days! Who doesn’t love snow days? My personal routine on a snow day is to wake up around noon, make some Ramen Noodles, and then relax and watch Netflix, but I found that what the majority of the Sem community did was much more interesting.

Something that I couldn’t believe is that 44% of the Sem community woke up bright and early! The other 56% did a combination of sleeping all day, sleeping till noon, just waking up periodically for food, and then falling back asleep – this I can understand. For the people who actually woke up, the most popular activity was to watch Netflix, followed up by playing Fortnite, and finally more sleep.

As I said before, I like to eat Ramen Noodles, but what everyone else eats is quite different. The top foods and drinks that were eaten on the snow days were mac n’ cheese, hot chocolate, and pancakes.

The most popular shows being watched on Netflix by Sem students right now are The Office, Stranger Things, Jane the Virgin, and The Flash.

Lastly, I wanted to know everyone’s opinion on this winter. For me, I’m just done with winter; I’m tired of having a big snowfall, having it get warmer, getting my car washed, more snow, and repeat. Don’t get me wrong, I love snow days just as much as the next guy, and making bets on whether we will have school the next day. Anyways, it seems like half of all the students want winter to go and half want it to stay. I don’t know which one is better but as long as we keep getting snow days and 2-hour delays, I’m alright with anything.
