Ok, it seems they're onto us, because it went from the high 60s ( Fahrenheit ) to what feels below freezing. I think the university is trying to freeze us out. Luckily I've adapted by making a nest inside on of their comfy couch-chairs.
I can't express in words how cold it is, but the Canadian guy ( i know he is Canadian because inexplicably is wearing shorts ) put on his hat. I hope that gives you an idea of the severity of our situation.
I've got a few hours of work to go, and the hunger and hypothermia is starting to set it. I've been eyeing the Canadian's domino's pizza box for some time now. I can't remember when he got it, or if there is pizza left inside, but it might be my key to survival.
no word from security yet. I can only assume they've succumbed to the cold.

So due to thanksgiving break my University closed all the buildings, including Engineering II.
"You don't close engineering." -One of the 30 or so students (including me) inside the building.
a security guard came in, kinda looked around helplessly, and then told us to please not to jam any more newspaper into the door's locking mechanism. Didn't do it.
