It’s 7:50 am on a Thursday morning. You wake up in a frenzy thinking, “How could I be so stupid–sleeping through the bells and my alarm?” Forget eating, you’re going to be late, and you’re going to get demerits! But then you remember. It’s a snow day. No work today, just relaxation.

While students excitedly flocked home en masse Thursday night, there were some who stayed and spent their day with their classmates out at the Mount.

For Charlie Plozay ‘20, a student who stayed out at school for the night, the day was ”totally laid back.”

“You would think that it would be really crazy, having a bunch of guys around when there is no work to do, but we really just hung out all day, did some bro stuff together, and listened to some fresh tunes,” Plozay said

Plozay, Ben Goetz ‘20, Tony Traggiai ‘20, and Santiago Santamaria ‘20 stuck together throughout the day.  The group played various games throughout the day, including warball in the gym along with around 20 other students according to Plozay.

“It was awesome,” Addison Cousin-Hardrick ’20, another warball player, said. “We had enough people to play the games, but few enough where it wasn’t chaos. It was definitely the highlight of my day.”

After the warball session, some students moved over to the armory to played ultimate ping-pong, and then hung out in their rooms for the remainder of the day.

According to Cousin-Hardrick, the day felt more like Camp Mount Michael than a normal day. He explained that there were so many possible activities, along with minimal school-related stress, and nearly unlimited hangout time.

Perhaps the only regret of the day was that there really wasn’t any fresh snow.

“I was really hoping to go outside and goof off in some fresh whiteness with my boys,” Plozay said. “It all turned out alright though.”

While not much went down, Plozay, Traggiai, Santamaria, and Goetz wouldn’t have had it any other way.

“I wouldn’t have gone home even if I had the chance. I got to bond with people from other classes and hang out with my buds. It was way better than being at home because I’ve got a bunch of brothers here,” Goetz explained.
