“If there was no virus going around, me and the girls would be having the craziest weekend of all time." Freshman Blissfully Unaware Her Weekends Probably Would Have Looked Like This Anyway

FITZPATRICK HALL — Sadie Anderson (CSOM ’24) reportedly spent Friday afternoon alone in her quad, preparing for another weekend of sitting around with her three roommates drinking Truly™ Seltzer and a handle of raspberry Rubinoff leftover from the previous weekend. The foursome is also alleged to have considered watching a movie on Netflix or maybe starting the second season of You, blissfully unaware that regardless of the coronavirus pandemic, her weekends as a freshman at Boston College probably would have looked like this anyway.

“It’s a real bummer that COVID has had such a devastating effect on our social lives so far this year,” Anderson told the Classic. “If there was no virus going around, me and the girls would be having the craziest weekend of all time. My roommate Tasha’s cousin’s TA probably would have gotten us into some wild mod parties. And we were all super ready to use our fakes at the bars in Cleveland Circle, but it’s just really not worth it nowadays since they’re all just basically restaurants.”

Anderson’s sweet innocence in believing her weekends as a freshman would look any different than they currently do in the COVID era elicited several “Awws” from upperclassmen when her comments were made public. 

“It’s genuinely so adorable that she thinks the year would have been any more fun,” said Lauren Thompson (CSOM ’21). “I mean, this kid’s a classic fence-hopper, a dec-reader, a sliding-door-sneak. She’s lucky to have the privilege now of drinking too much, throwing up in a shared shower, and passing out on a vomit-soaked carpet before 11:30.”

At press time, Anderson was seen attempting to return a pack of condoms to CVS, telling the cashier she “totally would have needed them already if things this year were like, you know, normal.”
