Some minor notes about actual school, as opposed to the fluffy stuff below:
My email inbox has been absolutely crushed by the weight of students seeking to buy and sell books. Given that purchasing just the main required texts (not even the recommended supplements) for my 4 classes this semester will set me back $600 (new), I can see why.
Also, there’s a lot of people looking to sell UM football tickets for some outrageous prices ($300 for the game against Notre Dame!?). Is Michigan football big here, or something?
Finally, this guy is absolutely insane: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWfph3iNC-k&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
