Knightly News fanatics, you may remember last year’s segment of “What Grinds My Gears (WGMG)” by former Managing Editor Jonathan Rushton. WGMG is back, focusing on the frustrations that come with the Fall and Winter seasons. Here is what grinds my gears (and maybe grinds yours as well).

  1. Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving
  2. Daylight savings time ending so that the sun sets at 5 p.m.
  3. Cold in the morning, but hot in the afternoon
  4. Learning new material all the way up until exam week
  5. Pumpkin Spice lattes
  6. “Friendsgiving” Instagram posts
  7. Tests on the half-day before Thanksgiving
  8. People eating cough drops as if they were candy
  9. Sports practices over Winter Break
  10. UGA football choking
  11. Not actually snowing when it’s predicted to
  12. Intercom announcements about Budapest
  13. “Wet Boiz” trash talk 
  14. Only three days for Spirit Week
  15. Calling hot chocolate “hot cocoa”
