WESTWOOD—Freshman James Beckstead noted he saw a figure approaching that very closely resembled his CHEM 14A study partner from the fall quarter, but as their paths crossed, no interaction was recorded. “Earlier today on Bruinwalk, I wasn’t sure if it was him or not, so I kept pretending I was looking at my phone until I got close enough to confirm it was actually him, then I attempted to greet him,” said Beckstead, while demonstrating the pathetic and limp wave he gave. “I thought we were at least on a head nod basis, but he kept his eyes straightforward and brushed by me as if I was just one of the 29,661 other unmemorable undergraduates. I guess our late nights in Powell and BCafé coffee runs meant nothing. So much for seeing if he wanted to catch up and grab a meal at BPlate.” Beckstead was last seen bitterly deleting contacts from his iPhone.
