Here at Gavel Media, we are big fans of Twitter. Since the advent of this new form of social media, various Twitter accounts related to all things Boston College have popped up on the web---some funny, some not. We are here to help you navigate the plethora of BC accounts so that you can get some good laughs without clogging up your Twitter feed.
The pick for this week is the parody account for O’Neill Library, @OneillProblems. O’Neill Library looks and sometimes feels like a prison, and almost everyone on campus has had their fair share of frustrations while doing their time inside (and if you’re a freshman, you will soon—trust us). Whether it is setting off the alarm on the first floor if you leave late, the picked-over vending machines, the complete inability to find a good seat—let alone one by an outlet—or simply the difficulty of the assignment you’re working on, all students have probably tried to pull their hair out or throw something at least once. During finals week this frustration only rises exponentially, and we at Gavel Media advise all students to wear helmets to avoid head injuries from coffee cup or textbook projectiles from the O’Neill inmates.
@OneillProblems sympathizes with our O’Neill woes and tries to lighten the mood by reminding us that we are not alone. Examples of tweets include: "I just learned more reading Lil Wayne's Wikipedia than I learned reading anything for this paper
#ONeillProblems;" “Who needs Adderall when you have Call Me Maybe? #ONeillProblems #ONeillSolutions;” and “There's a special place in Hell reserved for professors who make papers due the day after Marathon Monday #ONeillProblems."
Whether you are pulling an all-nighter for a chemistry test or just stopping by to print, @OneillProblems will make your nights of studying and paper-writing a little more entertaining. Don’t laugh too loud though—it’s a library.
