It seems that as the weather gets colder, my workload gets heavier. This past week, I’ve had a Stats test (one of only four grades for the class) and have just gotten more and more reading. So it’s looking like it’s going to be fun weekend. However, my parents said they might come up and visit, which will brighten my day. (Especially if my mom does my laundry, like at home.)
It rained at the Open House and I had to stand outside greeting families as they came in to check-in. By then end of the day I couldn’t wait to go back to my room and just go to sleep. Hopefully the weather for the next one will be able to highlight how nice this campus truly is. It was nice seeing all the families and how excited they were to be there despite the inclement weather.
Next week, I’m going to see Shwayze in Providence at Lupo’s with a bunch of friends from back home, and it turns out that a lot of people from RWU are going, which is a nice surprise. Wednesday, Alan Weisman, the author of our common reading book, The World Without Us is coming to speak. I have to read two chapters and do a presentation on them for my First Year Experience class, but a bunch of my friends have to write papers on the book, so I guess I got pretty lucky.
The night before my American Government exam, I stayed up really late studying and then ended up waking up ten minutes before the class, still wearing the clothes I had on the day before. So, I ran to to class without showering or changing and managed to still do pretty well on it.
I’ve also joined the Campus Entertainment Network, which plans all of the awesome events on campus, like Spring Weekend (in the past, O.A.R., Ludacris, Dane Cook, and others have come and performed.) Right now, we are working on planning Wicked Weekend, which is the weekend of Halloween. I’ll be posting more details about that as they come about.
I’ll be posting pictures soon of stuff on campus and of the concert. But I’ve got to go and write a paper. College would be more fun if all that homework didn’t in the way. Until next time.
