Dear Fellow Graduate Student…

Did you just have planned a weekend that was full and enriching, with just the right balance between work and play, so you could start the week with an empty to-do list and plenty of spirit in the tank? Good for you!

Oh no, did you oversleep by 3 hours, and have now had to cancel "fun reading" time? And you now have to do laundry during Peak Laundry Hour? Yes, it's okay to pretend that the suspicious washer which doesn't seem to do much actually gets your clothes clean. Also okay to take a chance on the rotten dryer that's the only one not in use, let it swallow your coins, and then kick it a couple of times when it fails to start. If you do try tipping it forward to make it regurgitate your quarters, I'd recommend having a keen sense of balance.
