It's 2:00 in the morning on Sunday (I guess now Monday) March 17th. Today a lot of us will start finals week. This is my 8th finals week at DePaul and every one of them gets a little more intense. Before now I've always tried to avoid the library during finals week because it has seemed so stressful in there, but it's been pretty nice to spend most of the day here. I can take a break from studying and walk around to chat with friends and other people that I don't see very often. It's great. The first floor of the library was renovated this past year and it's a whole new world. It's perfect because if you need a really quite place to study then that is available upstairs, but there's also space to chat with friend or group members and not feel bad about disturbing the people around you.
The pictures below are just the first floor, but it's this busy on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors. I creeped so hard so that you could all see the real life of the library. I'm no photographer so I apologize for the horrible lighting. You should know that there's some real nice space in the JTR (the John T. Richardson library) that doesn't have fluorescent lighting.
