IMSA is full of ups and downs, but sometimes it feels like a succession of downs. Eventually, you have to let out all of your pent-up frustration and sadness. Although it’s completely natural to cry, it’s also natural to feel ashamed of the unstoppable, emotional torrents. On the bright side, wherever you are on IMSA campus, there are excellent places to unleash your anguish and lighten your heavy heart. Whether you just slept through your first mod Dr. Kind reading quiz, or you discovered that you’re out of K-cups after your third all-nighter in the same week, we have you covered. We’ve compiled a list of our most beloved sobbing spots. Feel free to comment your go-to, favorite areas wherein you feel all of your feelings; we could always use more.
1. On top of Yare
The world deserves to know!
2. In 1508’s massage chair
If you have to cry, you might as well do it in comfort.
3. On a dinner date
It’ll really break down some barriers and form a deep, emotional connection.
4. In Dr. Dong and Dr. Hawker’s office
You were only one ModPhys quiz away from snapping anyway.
5. At your SIR
No amount of Spotify can get you through eight monotonous hours every I-day.
6. On the Sodexo stage
Dinner and a… tragedy.
7. During a club meeting
Because, where is the time otherwise?
8. In the pool
If you’re underwater, is your face even wet?
9. In the middle of the Old Cafe
At this point, why hide it?
I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Heena Srivastava (‘17) and Eshan Mehrotra (‘17) for providing the inspiration for this article, and a thank you to Alex Zhong (‘19) for helping compile this list and for “crying” in each spot.
