After spending this past weekend at his grandparents’ house with no connection to the real world, Clay Cosimano (’14) faced extreme embarrassment on Monday. For not knowing all the weekend’s most important events, Cosimano’s friends would make fun of him. There was only one option remaining he knew could save him from this trauma.
When he arrived at the library Monday, Cosimano had done all the necessary preparations. He had with him his phone, his computer and his headphones. In case of an emergency, Cosimano equipped himself with a computer and phone charger.
“You have to be ready for anything,” Cosimano stated. “Something as simple as forgetting a computer charger can be detrimental to a student’s success in study hall.”
After thirty minutes of scrolling furiously through his newsfeed, Cosimano felt ready to walk the halls with confidence. This, he felt, had to be the most productive study hall in his three years at Bullis.
Others have noticed Cosimano’s recent success. A teacher who asked to remain nameless saw Cosimano working diligently as they walked past his room and said, “His constant focus on his computer screen as he writes his essay for another class is a model for other students.”
Moving on towards the rest of the year, Cosimano hopes he should never have to scramble at the last moment the way he did earlier this week. For now though, he is proud of the way he recently pulled through.
