C of I is known far and wide for having intelligent and multi-talented students, but did you know that Yotes are extrordinarily good-looking as well?
Mr. CASAnova is a man-pageant, which showcases the dashing good looks you see around campus. Ten extremely talented men shed their inhibitions (and the occassional shirt) to raise money for a great and very worthy cause, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). They dressed as sea creatures, they danced, they rapped, they played guitar, piano, and slammed some poetry. They really put themselves on display.
I don't remember if this happened near the end of fall term or at some time during winter term, but I remember loitering on the first floor of Anderson Hall one night, a few feet away from its lobby, sitting on the cold tile floor.. I was sitting across from a few friends of mine and directly next to someone I had just met that evening, a girl whose name I can't remember and who I haven't spoken with since. The conversation, which had previously revolved around tabletop gaming and the future of animation, eventually turned into a discussion of homework.
Earlier this year, I posted about what emails are currently populating my inbox. It’s always a pretty solid indicator of what’s happening in my life, so I thought I’d reprise the post today.
*Payroll Deadlines*: If I had a work-study job, I’d be paying close attention to this one to make sure my hours were turned in on time. As it is, I only get paid from my freelance Coyote work, and Jason Hunt handles all the payroll stuff for the writers. So all I have to pay attention to is the fact that payday is April 30th.
There are more events on campus than I can keep up with, but tonight I went to one that was particularly good: a presentation done by two women who like being called Lipsynching Oprah (Kristin) and her sidekick, Ellen (Gabrielle).
Their organization, Everyone is Gay, is an advice and resources website for members of the LGBQT community. Kristin and Gabrielle delivered a very funny, accessible, and relevant presentation about issues facing all people, including LBGQT rights, women's rights, and human rights.
Elections for student body offices were held last Friday, but late last night there were still campaigners knocking on my door. That’s because today is the run-off for two offices: Treasurer and Secretary.
Easter may have been last Sunday, but that didn’t stop SUB (Student Union Building) Committee from hiding 480 eggs around campus. And the eggs really were all over campus. I found mine by the shrubs around Sterry, nestled behind KAIC, and in the dirt by Covell. That last egg had a few ants in it. All my other eggs had candy too, except for one that had a slip saying I’d won No Country For Old Men. Other prizes were a $50 gift certificate, headphones, other movies, a hammock and an inflatable chair. My RA Hillary won the inflatable chair and Pride and Prejudice.
For my final spring break of my undergraduate career, I was fortunate enough to be able to go to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park with The College of Idaho Outdoor Program.
I love spending time in the outdoors and being able to get away from college and the constant stress of senior year. Zion was a great escape to say the least. It was amazingly beautiful, with all kinds of rock formations, arches and testing hikes.
After a week of slogging through midterms, it’s spring break and I’m back at home in Boise to spend the week with my furry friends. The crazy thing about spring break is that it means six weeks have already gone by, and there’s only six left before the summer. That’s a little too fast for my taste.
You are exactly the person I hoped would read this, because I know that you have a fantastic repertoire of dance moves. And are a great listener with an even better sense of humor. Plus your hair looks fantastic today.
Even if those compliments seem generic, they are true, and hopefully they reminded you that you love compliments. Everyone does.
