Twas four weeks till the break, when all through the college, some small things were stirring, seeking new knowledge
Don’t know them from last year? Here’s what’s in store… Our elves, Paige and Read are back at it once more!
With last year’s IDs they knew what to do! To the Library the skipped to get them renewed!
And at the Library desk, oh, something new and inviting! Canned foods for overdue fines… How thrilling! How exciting!
Looking to learn, they planned sneaking to classes, with gift bags in tow, working hard for some passes!
With so much to do, Paige made a decision. “I’ll use tomorrow’s extended hours in the Library for revision!”
Now the elves had arrived, what should they study? “Let’s try education and reading to a buddy!”
On the way from the Library the elves dropped by the centre for student success, with writing tips and coaching mentor!
The Library kiosk was the next stop to be had, where they booked study rooms and searched for books that were rad!
With finals approaching, a relaxing PAWS is sound! Paige and Read heard about one… Louie the therapy dog is coming to town!! (and by town, we mean the Front Lounge of the Vera Bracken Library on Dec 6 from 12-1PM)
Hearing students talk of the databases’ might They researched the Jewish Festival of Lights. Celebrating one day of oil that lasted for eight, the elves wish Happy Hanukkah to all on this date!
With assignments due shortly, Read loaded up money. “The campus self-serve printing option is so simple it’s funny!”
With their printing credits ready they felt quite at ease, so they spent some time sitting in the front lounge at peace. While enlightenment takes longer than the time they had free, our elves call out happily “Blessed Bodhi Day to thee!”
The extra hour last week helped Paige out a lot! This week Read will join her, 4-5 in the Library, for a thought!
This International Human Rights Day the elves are proud to join in, Declaring “Elves are for Human Rights!” But do you know where yours begin? Check out the Human Rights Support at the College: https://buff.ly/3HTNQTy
The elves were quite pleased with their health book collection… though Read still ate too much that he gave himself indigestion!
With a tummy-ache extreme from reading/eating experimentation, Paige sought out some help for Read’s health tribulations. Besides, they knew that in nursing their was talent to unleash… though the equipment they needed always seemed just out of reach.
In VisCom they painted well into the night, with even their still-life’s strung with bright lights! Learning theories of color, design, and composition, they thought some new paint worth a sleigh branding transition!
To the Library they raced with their designs freshly sketched, making vision into 3D reality, hands and minds both outstretched.
With a few finals left, the break fast approaches… there is one extended hour in the Library left before its passed. Join the elves this Friday, till five, for studying time. It will be merry and bright, holly jolly, and fine!
The elves rubbed their chins as they took a step back, diagrams filling up whiteboards with awesome reindeer jet packs!
The elves entered the gym, and man, were they psyched! Before their eyes: the perfect space for an epic snowball fight!!
As they finished their work they realized their blunder… “We haven’t checked in with Santa! Surely he’s beginning to wonder!” So they borrowed an OWL for a virtual meeting, And seeing familiar faces they ushered a greeting!
Paige and Read let Santa know about all the learning they had faced. And, thanks to their business classes, pitched that Santa’s workshop be made remote-based!
The elves learned today what Pancha Ganapati observes; a celebration with focus on five realms to preserve! This day is only the first, four more will follow in tow… love of family, friends, associates, culture, and religion… all grow!!
At the end of the month, their heads filled to bursting, they headed to the Library to do some soul searching.
With the campus soon closing for the holiday rest they relaxed in the Library, restored and refreshed.
With all the fun that was had they just knew they’d be back, for these elves have a passion for learning new facts!
Tune in all through December as more of Paige and Read’s Grand Adventure is told…
