    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

Kerst in the Winter

I live in the Kerst apartment building on campus. It’s the farthest building from Tower, and it usually takes me a rough 8 minutes to walk from Kerst to get to class in Tower. It takes 10 minutes if I’m going to the science building from Kerst. I love this apartment building. There are spacious kitchens, large vanities with double sinks, big showers, and a nice living room. It really is one of the best college campus housing I’ve ever seen.

But it’s started to snow these past few weeks. Snow means cold. Snow means ice on sidewalks. Snow means 8 minutes of wind and snow blowing in my face as I shiver beneath my coat and cling tightly to my gloves inside of my pockets.

It makes me miss the days when I was living in Somers Hall and I could ditch my coat and scarf and gloves and take the tunnels to class and go back to my dorm room without a single snowflake having touched me. But going outside is inevitable living in Kerst, just like if I were living anywhere else other than Somers Hall.

I don’t mind the snow. I just don’t like being in it. Or touching it. Or slipping on it. Or getting my shoes wet.

Enjoy the tunnels while you can, Freshmen.
