As the esteemed Board of Extra Muros, we find it essential to infuse a little humour and fun into our scholarly lives. Today, we want to share with you the often-underappreciated art of “falling” for our study association. No, we’re not referring to academic failures (though we’ve all been there); we’re talking about the comical misadventures we experience on our mostly beloved campus.
Let’s face it, life in our community is a series of hilarious and memorable stumbles, tumbles, and falls. No, we’re not talking about scandalous gossip or political drama. From stepping into a lecture hall only to realize it’s the wrong class to getting caught in a sudden downpour without an umbrella – these are the moments that make our journey through academia truly memorable.
The community of Extra Muros has truly mastered the art of falling, and it’s high time we give it the recognition it deserves. In fact, we would argue that our ability to navigate these treacherous terrains with style and grace rivals any Olympic sport. Imagine if we held an EM tripping competition – we might just discover a hidden talent for gymnastics! But let’s not stop at mere recognition; we should celebrate our resilience, agility, and the hilarious ways we bounce back from our frequent mishaps in our student life. We should all celebrate our lives no matter their form.
Furthermore, these mishaps often serve as a bonding experience that unites us all. Sharing an awkward elevator ride with a professor or accidentally attending the wrong department’s seminar can lead to enduring friendships and shared chuckles during coffee breaks.
In conclusion, let’s embrace the art of falling on campus with humour and a sense of camaraderie. Life is full of bumps in the road, and it’s our ability to rise with a smile that sets us apart as a vibrant and united academic community.
As the Board of Extra Muros, we invite you to share your funny campus mishaps with us for a chance to be featured in our next issue of the Common Room. After all, our academic journeys are made richer by the amusing anecdotes that add flavour to our educational endeavours.
With a wink, a smile, and a well-placed Extra Muros joke,
The Board of Extra Muros
