What a week! The Gators swept the NCAA softball championship, a first for UF. Congratulations to the kick-ass ladies of Gator softball: We’re incredibly proud.

Summer A is upon us once again, and it’s a welcome relief. Campus is quiet — at least, until hordes of freshly minted UF first-years arrive for Preview — and we’re free to enjoy the last weeks of less-hellish weather before the brutal north Florida summer humidity sets in.

Another productive week has gone by, filled with reasonable bedtimes, completed homework assignments and lots of salad. Just kidding! Everyone’s too busy having a panic attack over the fact that Monday marks the last full week of classes to be responsible. This weekend, shirk your responsibilities and do fun things. Anything’s better than studying, and that’s what reading days are for.

Is it just us, or was this week not totally hellish? Most of us are in that comfortable lull between midterms and finals, the weather is gorgeous, and McDonald's will be giving away coffee for the next two weeks.

Spring has sprung, the birds are singing, the sun is shining and everyone is getting busy tanning their winter-white bodies on the Plaza of the Americas and the North Lawn. Just kidding, it’s gray and depressing once again.

Is it just us, or is the thought of sitting in a windowless classroom or cramped lecture hall unbearable lately? Now that we’re in that fleeting time of year when the weather is perfectly sunny during the day and deliciously crisp at night, it’s especially hard to sit through classes when we’d much rather be lounging poolside or relaxing on the North Lawn.

Despite a freak cold snap last night, this weekend is shaping up to look like Spring Break: Part Deux — or at least, that’s what we’re telling ourselves.

Now that election fervor has died down, we can all go back to walking through campus without fear of harassment — er, political canvassing. Though elections are over, it’s important now more than ever to stay informed about SG goings-on in order to hold senators and executive officers accountable for the promises they’ve made.

Gainesville, we can’t live like this much longer: Are you participating in this polar vortex or not? Why do you think it’s acceptable to be 80 degrees and muggy one day and 49 degrees and windy the next? At this rate, we’re going to have to start investing in those ‘90s-throwback cargo pants with legs that unzip into shorts.

This week, our thoughts and best wishes are with the members of the Roswell, N.M., and Tampa communities after two tragic shootings that resulted in deaths and injuries. Remember the golden rule of defending public safety as a citizen: If you see something, say something.

The last full week of the semester is coming to a close, and you should pat yourself on the back: You made it! Without further ado, here it is, folks: Your last-one-of-the-semester edition of Darts & Laurels.

The last wave of midterms has finally rolled on, so now it’s time to focus on the important stuff: Halloween costumes and tomorrow’s game against Missouri. But first, a PSA: To all you overzealous autumn-lovers wearing sweaters and scarves, cease and desist. If you keep wearing sweaters during 89-degree weather like today, you WILL get heat stroke. And die.

Readers, this is not a drill: Fall is finally upon us in Gainesville. The mornings are crisper, the nights are pleasantly cool, and we’re finally switching from iced coffee to hot pumpkin lattes. Everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.

Gainesville appears to be hosting some kind of lovebug Coachella at the moment. Luckily, you’re holding a pile of papers that function as both an informative news medium and an oversized lovebug swatter!
