I’m in college. A conversation with two or more people can’t last too long without it eventually turning towards Jimmy Stewart or Harry Potter.
I read the series. I’m familiar with all the Potter lore. I hated the movies. People (girls) rag on me all the time about this. I hate them. But the great thing about talking about these teenage wizards is that it’s easy to draw a lot of lines between the fantasy of Hogwarts and our campus.
I AM A PROCRASTINATOR! There I said it! Happy!? No need to keep it bottled up inside anymore. I have been a procrastinator since I was in elementary school. The thing is though, I thought I learned my lesson since then. I told myself not to be involved in too many things this year and that way there would be no way I could get behind! WRONG! It sucks that I cannot join a sorority, or choir, or martial arts, or Model UN, or any other really epic thing that campus offers but I simply do not have time.
So many letters, so many colors, so many girls! That’s right, rush week is here, meaning formal recruitment for the sororities on (and off) campus is in full bloom…
This is my first formal recruitment within Kappa Alpha Theta, and I cannot help but absolutely love it. It gives me a great opportunity to spend time with all of my ‘sisters’, as well as meet a big pack of freshmen, plus a sprinkle of sophomores and juniors.
Hayman is the ultimate stomping ground, and all of us here at the C of I are willing to admit it. We all had “the best floor,” “the best class,” “the best fishbowl” … yes, yes it’s true. However, there is something I must bring to your attention, and the sooner, the better.
This last weekend was the ten year anniversary of 9/11, one of the most tragic events in our history. I remember I was in the 3rd grade when this happened, and I had no idea what was going on. I felt so lost and confused that day, until my parents sat me down and explained what had really happened. I remember wondering who would be evil enough to do something like that to an entire country. That was the day America became united.
I’m writing this post on Tuesday, and I’m expecting it to be published maybe by Friday of this week. I know I said I’d talk about my classes in my next post, but I have more interesting things that happened.
I had an interesting weekend; a lot of strange, scary, and cool experiences not directly related to C of I happened that fall generally under my winding yarn that makes up my tale in college.
Some of you might have been thinking where have I been. Admittedly, I’ve been around, but had a hard time writing. You see, writing isn’t something that you just do. I have a tendency of writing about some things I’m passionate about more frequently than others. As far as a passion goes, well, it comes and goes. Not to despair, as you continue reading, you not only will learn about something I am passionate about, but also about to how sustain your passions amidst a very busy college life here on our great campus.
Feeling down about your homework load? In need of a pick-me-up? Well before you head to McCain for a Redbull…plant something green in your room! There are plenty of benefits to adding a house plant in your living space. Here are the top five reasons to bring a plant into your room…
So it’s the second week of classes, and much like the rest of my fellow Yotes, I’m super busy with all of my classes. However, in a study of irony and spontaneity, I just got back from a game of Frisbee Golf around the campus, and now I’m settling into an evening of reading on the porch.
In my next post, I’ll talk a little bit about my classes, but today I’m going to take you inside the Delt Haus.
Today marks my first post with videos! My boss is cheering somewhere.
