Q:Wait, are you on ringcom?
nah, but I am trying to get a free rat through the tshirt design competition
can I just reiterate how awesome patagonia is
» 3 years ago I bought a hoodie from patagonia for $80, which is a lot of money but I really liked the hoodie.
» now the left sleeve of the hoodie is pretty shredded from years of camping/hiking/climbing/falling into thorny bushes. so today I brought it into the patagonia store hoping to send it in for repairs.
» the guy takes a look at the sad state of the sleeve and says, “bet you brought this hoodie everywhere, huh?”
» we trade stories about our favorite hiking spots in yosemite for a few minutes
» “why don’t you just pick out a new jacket from the rack over there?”
» I need a new baselayer anyways so I pick out a $140 merino 3 hoodie, intending to pay for the difference
» he waves away my debit card and says “just bring back more stories with your new hoodie”
» this is how you get loyal customers
throwing around tshirt ideas
why am I limited to two colours :(((((

Q:Is MIT super-hard? Do the dance classes melt your bones?
(2) I’m taking fencing right now, which does indeed melt my bones because THE SUITS ARE SO HOT AND THE ROOM’S AIR CONDITIONING SUCKS*
*it’s megafun though. 10/10 would recommend to a friend
ugh why is it so hard to maintain a calorie surplus
