This holiday, yet to be recognized by the federal government, always takes place on the ninth day of November. As the holiday season ramps up stress levels rise (Halloween is just a warm up for the culinary challenges and onslaught of relatives that is Thanksgiving). The second quarter brings an increasing workload and the arduous ascent to midterms. Although you may feel particularly burdened with this unpredictable state, take solace in the fact that chaos has been bugging people for thousands of years. The ancient Greek poet Ovid referred to chaos as a “rude and undeveloped mass… all discordant elements confused.” So take this day to commemorate the randomness in your life, because without it the universe would not exist.
