You know that weird transition between AC and heat on campus? Everyone’s angry because you just want the heat switched on—and it just isn’t happening. Well, this can help quell your anger. Here are 8 ways to fight the cold!
I know you’ve seen these fluffy little creatures around. Well, next time you see one, snatch it! Skunks have been proven to give off great heat. They will help keep your feet warm– that is, if you don’t mind the smell.
2. Overheating Laptops
May not be good for the computer, but it’s good for you. Throw that lap desk across the room: you don’t need that anymore. The lovely heat coming from the bottom of your laptop can keep you toasty warm: that is, until it cools off.
3. Holding hands with strangers
Here at PC, we’re a community. The next person who smiles at you, grab their hand. Body heat is everything. Explain the situation and I’m sure they’d be more than happy to help. Dum Vivimus Servimus.
4. Creating a cuddle puddle
Remember all those blankets Grandma sent you? You never knew what to do with them. Fret no more. Layers are everything. Lay still somewhere and ask your roommate to pile them on. By the 12th layer, you should be feeling the heat.
5. Candles (We know they’re illegal)
Shh! This one’s on the hush hush. Go to Walmart and head to the clearance section. You can find them for a few bucks. Set them on a table and BOOM! You’ve got your own personal fireplace.
Goodbye Springs, we all know where the heat is. Why is GDH so warm? It doesn’t make any sense, and it doesn’t really matter. You’ll be eating here more often than not. Become best buds with Ms. Yolanda, and she may even let you stay after closing.
7. Textbook bonfire
You could use leaves, but burning textbooks is more rewarding. We’re in the homestretch of the semester, so who needs textbooks? Textbooks + Matches = Heat. There are only two downsides. One, you have to go outside. Two, bonfires have to be approved on campus.
8. Hot showers
Last but not least, hot showers. Wake up, shower, class, shower, eat, shower, bed, shower. You get the idea. Use that hot water to your advantage. Yeah, it’s temporary, but that’s better than nothing.
Brace the cold, PC, the heat will be on soon. I’m going to go take a hot shower.
