Michael Craft, 27, is an independent game developer from Shawnee, Okla. He’s been reading “A Song of Ice and Fire” since 2002, when he was a sophomore in high school. “If the ending of a series I’ve been reading for over a decade gets spoiled before I crack that final page and read the words myself, that would be a really big bummer,” Craft says. “Honestly, if and when it happens, I will have to just go on a media blackout. I will have to remain vigilant against spoilers and soldier on waiting for those books. I just can’t learn the ending from a TV show. I just can’t.”.

Last year, Stroup’s goal was simply not to gain weight during the many hours he sat in front of a computer. He lost five pounds.

At Goucher College, a small liberal-arts school in Baltimore, it’s the Sondheim residence. There, 64 students, freshmen and upperclassmen, troop off to yoga classes together, take dance lessons, learn how to cook healthful meals and sign a contract that requires them to abstain from alcohol, drugs and tobacco, said Billy Daly, a 19-year-old sophomore who is starting his second year in the residence. There are occasional family-style dinners and a true interest in creating an environment where there’s no pressure to drink.
