I want my goddamn library back

I hate this time of year. Final Exams.

You would think Final Exams wouldn't matter to me, since I don't have any. You would think that, but you'd be wrong.

I don't have Final Exams, but I still have an ass-load of work and research to do. Research which involves using the library - which is now cluttered wall to wall and floor to ceiling with gibbering, snoring, shuffling and vibrating undergraduates. They're everywhere! They're like a fucking swarm of locusts, devouring journals and filling the air with their incessant din. I want them to GO AWAY.

I had to get to the library at 9 am yesterday just to get a table at which to work. If you don't go in until 10 they're all taken. All of them. And there is nowhere left to work. So I have to go in first thing in the a.m. and stake a claim, then leave some stuff there marking my turf whenever I need to use the loo or, god forbid, step outside for a lungful of non-flourescent air and a gob of nutrient.

In a couple of weeks it will be over, though, and then i can have my goddamn library back. I mean, what do they think they are, students or something? Bah.

oh yes, i understand you, i really do. the library (any given library) is MINE. teachers and students, winos and vagrants are NOT ALLOWED. only the most bookish of the book nerds. and only SOME attendants. the helpful, non-chatty types. libraries are for serious booknerd business, not dicking about!
woo, thats better.
