“yaleuniversity” arrives on the Snapchat scene

In case you didn’t know, Snapchat is amazing. If you have Snapchat, you know this, and if you don’t have Snapchat you should probably stop reading right now and go download it just to improve your overall quality of life. But don’t take my word for it. Forbes magazine proclaimed that Snapchat has “taken over Yale” so if you consider yourself a part of the Yale community, you should probably acquiesce.

Today, my Snapchat life was forever changed. Math lecture was about to start. Cell service in that lecture hall is shit, but somehow I had enough 4LTE (4lyfe!) to connect to Snapchat. Boy, was I in for a surprise. “yaleuniversity” (no caps, dgaf) had added me as a friend.

I was shocked at my good fortune. It felt really nice to be appreciated for my true talent, especially since last night I was criticized for not sending “ugly” enough snap chats. I immediately snapped them a photo of me looking particularly studious (not ugly, never ugly), making sure to emphasize in my caption that lecture had not yet begun.

It wasn’t until I left lecture that a response finally arrived. Clearly “yaleuniversity” snapped be back immediately, but as I mentioned, the service in that lecture hall is shit.

I wish I could show you what they sent me. It was beautiful, exquisite, unique. I have never seen anything like it.
