How To Deal With The Snow

We should’ve known we’d be in it for the long haul after that gosh danged polar vortex swept through. I’m going to drop some honesty here – I hate snow to begin with. That being said, I’ve had to get creative to keep myself busy this winter. I’m going to share this valuable info with you today free of charge.


There’s nothing better than books. Settling in for a good novel and some hot chocolate is probably the only thing that could potentially rival pizza as the best thing ever. I prefer novels because they’re easier to sink into, which in turn helps you ignore that white junk outside!

2. Go on a run!

This one’s weird, but hear me out. Ice level permitting, a nice jog could possibly be considered a vital part of your life when trying to survive the winter. The air might feel a bit crisp at first, but you’ll warm up in no time. If you have an iOS or Android device, check out the cool meta-game Zombies, RUN!. It gives you a fun and exciting story to listen to as you escape the walking dead.

3. Tackle that video game backlog!

Alright, I know this one’s not for everyone, but this is MY LIST! I recently went back to finish Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and I ended up buying a sweet title called the Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection for PS3. It packs in Metal Gear Solid 1,2,3,4 and Peace Walker. It only cost me $30! If that doesn’t get you through the winter, you probably need to start going to class or something.

Well, there you have it. Three tips on surviving the tundra that Hope College has become. If you have any of your own tips to share, feel free to leave them in the comments!
