Sins of the Signs
Dear teachers, please stop assigning
things at the same time. I’d really like to
keep my sanity in tack. Thanks.
Learning Center, if I only get a 30 minute
appointment, then at least do me the
common courtesy of showing up on time!
Okay Mother Nature, we get it. ENOUGH
with the pollen.
Dear Roommate: When I’m sick with the
tlu and trying to sleep, please talk to your
Mom about your toenail problems out
side in the parlor. I’d really appreciate it.
BDH: do you realize that students still
cat on the weekends? We’d really like it if
you were open on tiiiie and had more of
a selection than overcooked fried chicken
Does no one care about the fate of pub
lications and clubs at Mei’edith? They’re
highly under-staffed. What ar e people
doing with their lives?
Tiffany Roche, Contributing Writer
As cliche as it sounds, college is
a time of personal evolution and
self-discovery, including an honest
assessment of our flaws. Some astro
logical signs are more predisposed to
certain personality flaws than others.'
Read on to discover (cue dramatic
music!) the SINS of the SIGNS!
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Domi
neering and self-righteous. Don’t
allow “natural leader” to become a
euphemism for “bossy and overbear
ing”. They’ll let you lead if you at
least pretend their opinions matter as
much as yours.
■ Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Jeal
ous and headstrong. It’s understand
able you resent those who seem to
not work as hard as you, but receive
the same rewards. But don’t hate
the player, hate the game. In other
words, work smarter, not harder.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Inde
cisive and superficial. You’re almost
too open to change, too open to new
experiences, and almost too willing
to hear every new idea. You have no
incentive to become more reliable
because you’re often veiy attractive
and easily let of the hook.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Moody
and possessive. Loyalty is lovely, but
others need room to breathe. A smile
every once in a while won’t kill you.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Vain and
self-satisfied. Larger-than-life Leos
are known for being very generous
because they can afford to be kind
to the little people. Use your charms
for good and not to feed a sense of
Virgo (August 23 - September 22):
Nit-picking snob. Use your innate
good taste to guide rather than to
judge. Hint: The white-gloved home
inspections might be the reason
you’re the last to hear about the great
Libra (September 23 - October
22): Self-indulgent motor mouth.
You talk too much, you eat too much,
and you probably spend too much.
But you’re really fun to be around so
everyone forgives you.
Scorpio (October 23 - November
21): Obsessive and ruthless. You’re
the Tony Soprg|io of the
zodiac and nobody wants
to get on your bad side. The
problem is that some might
not want to be on your good
side either if they sense your
compulsive need for control
and unwillingness to forgive
22 - December 21): Reckless
and tactless. When it comes
to conversation, you’re the
proverbial bull in a china
shop. Is there anyone you
haven’t offended? You’re not
mean, but you can be a little
Capricorn (December^2 -
January 19): Pessimistic pen-
ny-pincher. In these tough
economic times, frugality is
a virtue. Being cheap is not.

Letters From Sansepolcro
Excerpt from Hilary Towle’s
Despite all of the fun we’ve been
having right here in Sansepolcro,
we’re still taking group excursions
and having fun on those as well.
Last Saturday we headed to Assisi,
most well known for St. Francis of
Assisi—the patron saint of animals.
I’m not sure if it was because of the
warm weather and sun shining, or
because of its location on the side
of a mountain providing it with a
gorgeous view of a valley below,
but Assisi is lovely and definitely
one of my favorite places visited to
date. The narrow, winding roads
that either took you up or down a
hill depending on the direction you
were walking made for a quaint
feel to the town, and the palm trees
(not native to the area, but Italians
are big fans) and potted flowers
in almost every window made it

feel homey. Our first stop was the
Cathedral; this dual-level church is
home to some of the most, spec
tacular frescoes depicting both the
old and new testament on every
inch of wall space available. St.
Francis is buried in the bottom of
the church, and his tomb is open
to visitors in a small chapel where
you can sit and reflect, or pray to
him. We broke apart for lunch
after our Cathedral visit, and most
of us enjoyed a typical Italian meal
in a trattoria before reconvening to
head into the Carceri forest where
St. Francis spent a lot of his time
with the animals. However, some
thunderstorms that were popping
up in the area prevented us from
taking our hike through the forest
in order to observe various plants
and natural life for science class;
instead we adjusted our plans and
headed to Monte Casale, another
location at which St. Francis spent
much of his time. The Monte
Casale monastery is still in practice
today, and the monks were very
generous for letting us take a look
around. We saw where St. Fran
cis slept on a slab of rock (part of
his renunciation of all things too
comfortable) when he visited, as
well as the chapel, some animals
kept there, and the incredible
view, as Monte Casale sits on the
side of a mountain. The visit to
Assisi refreshed our memories on
information we learned about the
Cathedral in art history class, and
we were still able to observe some
natural plant life at Monte Casale,
so all in all it was a successful day.
to borrow a quarter, try not to let your
hesitation be so obvious.
Aquarius (January 20 - February
18): Detached eccentric. You come
across very cool and above it all, but
that’s because you’re really a robot
with your human self locked away ,
Pisces (February 19 - March 20):
Overly sensitive and fearful. You’d
rather not deal with the harsh realities
of life and are more vulnerable than
most. You also have a harder time
separating fantasy from reality. Good
news; this means you have no need
for mind-altering substances.
