Circle of Death
Since coming back to campus, adjusting to the Stanford lifestyle hasn’t been always been easy. I thought it would like learning how to ride a bike again, you know, it comes right back to you just like that. However, what I failed to remember is how difficult it is — me especially — to ride a bike, and that it takes a little trial and error before you get going again. And of course, looking around at everyone whizzing past me and doing loops around the Circle of Death, I had to believe it was just me who was struggling to just stay on a bike.
Students gathered in the center of the “Circle of Death” in yoga attire to practice the classic tree pose, while their fellow classmates biked to class. Their peaceful state of mind contrasted with their location, as the “Circle of Death” is notorious for the many bike accidents that take place there each year.
