"Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must." -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Life happens. The good and the bad, the ups and the downs, the awesome and the not-as-awesome.

Awesome: Duke losing. To anyone. Ever.
Not-as-awesome: UNC potentially getting spanked by Kentucky.

Awesome: Someone pulling up to your doorstep at 11 PM blasting Christmas music and grabbing you for a holiday dance to kick off the season.
Not-as-awesome: Dorm violation meetings (what ever happened to innocent until proven guilty?!)

Awesome: Cats.
Not-as-awesome: 10-page public policy papers.

Awesome: Breakfast in bed.
Not-as-awesome: Having to eat the homemade soup in your fridge your mom gave you a week ago, that has probably gone bad, but you have nowhere to dispose of it because the sink will clog, the toilet already doesn't flush, and you can't take the trash out til next week (hashtag dorm life?)

Awesome: The VS Fashion Show (for obvious reasons)
Not-as-awesome: The VS Fashion Show (for more obvious reasons)

Awesome: Christmas is coming!
Not-as-awesome: I have no money!

Awesome: Having a namesake.
Not-as-awesome: Having a name no one can pronounce.

Awesome: Fraternity Christmas decorations
Not-as-awesome: Sorority Christmas decorations

Awesome: When dad wants to get lunch with me...
Not-as-awesome: the cafeteria

The awesome, however, is always worth the not-as-awesome.
