15 Ways You Know You Go to OES

1. You have the lunch menu bookmarked. And you check it about as much as you check Facebook.

2. You’ve given up on the concept of Dead Week (the week before finals), because you know it will be just as stressful and project/test filled as Finals Week.

3.You’re caught completely off-guard when your out of school friends refer to their teachers as Mr. and Mrs. Something.

4. When you’re not in school, you still expect someone to serve you cheese, fruit, and some sort of cracker at 10am.

5. Double Sleep-in days become as exciting as your birthday. And you brag about it to your friends when it’s your Double Sleep-in week.

6. Losing that 30 minutes of worktime for Office Hours on Monday is a freaking crisis. And you just know your week is going to suck when that happens.

7. The bathrooms double as a space to cry when you get a bad test/essay grade. Especially around finals week, it’s hard to walk in and not see someone crying.

8. You probably are at a higher risk for ulcers and other stress-related ailments when a Humanities test or essay looms in the near future.

9. And if you get a good grade on this test/essay, it’s practically a reason to throw yourself a freaking party because it’s such a triumph.

10. You spend most of your money on New Seasons or Starbucks. Admit it, OES is probably single-handedly responsible for funding their franchises.

11. You can’t go to Stumptown tutoring without seeing EVERYONE in your grade there. We hold up their business too. (Side note: don’t “scrub” when headed to Stumptown. People WILL see you.)

12. You know all the nutrition facts of all the Crush flavors, including the fact that one bottle has over 100% of the recommended daily sugar intake.

13. You’re okay with leaving your laptop on the floor of the Great Hall, but you know to keep food tightly secured in your locker.

14. You’re well-informed about the “‘Lost’ Email Spell” — once you send the email, you find whatever you’ve lost. And then you get to send ANOTHER all-school email about how you found it.

15. The majority of your phone contacts are OES faculty/teachers that you’ve accumulated over the years.
