Dartmouth + MIT =

I had a revelation last night. All these years, I was always bothered by the expression "Going to sleep." I always figured that sleep wasn't a place, and so the "going" word really bothered me.

Well, last night I finally figured out that it could also be like, "What are you going to do?" "Well, I'm going to sleep." So, instead of being a noun (people, thing, in this case, place), it's a verb! (something you do)

I feel so much better now. Man, I really need the upcoming spring break.

Going to run (along the Charles),
Going to swim (in the pool),
Going to eat (a burrito),
Going to drink (Gatorade),
etc etc.

In other words, duh.
