kind of like a modern day william wallace, right?

November 17, 2010

monday marked the beginning of exams for students at UB. michael, one of our student leaders, felt compelled to really start it off right. really get people excited, you know? so sunday night he walks outside of his room and sets off a flare. yes, a FLARE. then he starts waving it around and screaming to encourage the enthusiasm of others in the face of exams. haha!

security, OF COURSE, starts running towards michael to stop him from throwing a flare around in the middle of campus. but because it’s dark and he’s holding a FLARE, michael doesn’t even see them. he’s thinking “man, i gotta get higher ground so more people can see this flare!” so he immediately starts running towards the stairs, which to security looks like he’s trying to escape. so they TACKLE michael, who is still holding a flare, and wrestle him to the ground.

after they put out the flare and he explains that he was only doing it because it was the official start of exams and he wanted everyone to be as exhilarated as he was, security just laughs and walks away. michael, if i was a student at UB that would have really meant a lot to me.
