    Today I used my reusable mug at the campus coffee shop and the barista looked at me shocked and said "people actually use those?" Hopefully, more and more people start to use them around campus so it doesn't seem like such a rarity anymore

    Today I was thinking about the weather. I like hot weather, but I don't like hot weather when it's supposed to be cold. I have always lived in Texas, so I know the weather is hotter here, but I feel like towards the end of October it's usually colder (mid to low 70s). The past 2 years have seemed to be hotter than usual, but why?
