Admit it. You set the alarm early, planning to knock everything off your perpetual checklist. Read chapter 12, which happens to be 80 pages? Grocery shop, because your avocados went bad a week ago and you're living off take out.

Start your essay, even though you know it will not even have a title till 12 hours before it is due.
One skim over the list and you're uninterested. So what do you do instead? Treat your three hour lecture as if it is the Met Gala, and get severely overdressed. But do not fear. We are all guilty.

RADmag was thrilled to host our second annual clothing swap back in February. The event took place at eative filmcafe, a cozy cafe in the heart of Kensington Market. A success to say the least, the swap was filled with mingling bodies, great finds, and hot drinks to help keep out the cold air.
