This past weekend was planned to be an awesome filled weekend!…But due to weather, intramural softball was rained out on Saturday. MudSlam was canceled due to bad weather–but it was actually sunny so some people still played! Allen Wedel was pumped that he still got to play MudSlam. He had been looking forward to MudSlam for a looong time! Send off for Summer was the only thing not canceled!
Students stood in line for free t-shirts (the first 75 students) and the Student Life staff grilled the hot-dogs and hamburgers. There were inflatables, pie was thrown into faculty faces, and students played catch with a football. This was very fun for everyone and it was a great time to spend with friends before heading into finals and then moving home for the summer. Even though softball and MudSlam was canceled, the weekend still ended up pretty good. Send off for Summer is always an event students look forward to.
…Now the weekend is over, it is on to studying for finals!
Uh oh for fun, get ready for the best weekend of your college careers. This weekend is going to be filled with so much fun and excitement.
Starting on Friday, after classes end there will be a game of capture the flag in the dark!!! Yay! Then on Saturday it is the annual intramural softball games where there is a lot of fun and excitement. Even if you’re not a participant, many go to lay out in the sun and cheer on their peers and of course barbecue. You can’t have a softball game without a barbecue. Last but not least, there is Sunday. Who can forget mud-slam, that icky sticky rolling around in the mud all day volleyball game which implies win or go home!!! After you’re all washed up from the mud, you should go to send off for summer.
Yay my favorite part of the year because it is the last time to spend time with your buddies before everyone leaves for the summer. Remember the first 75 people at send off for summer get free t-shirts.
I just finished up my last class of the semester! Once May hit, everything began to get crazy and hectic! My classes are done now–but onto finals next week! I am fortunate enough to only have one final test left and a final paper next week.
I cannot believe that the school year is coming to a close, seniors are about to move on, and summer jobs are about to start up! Time has flown by since spring break. This is both a good and bad thing. I have had so many projects and papers to get done in a short amount of time, so I have been stressed to the max. Now that most of my whirlwind is done, I am able to de-stress just a bit before my last push to the end. I can see the end in sight and I am soo excited!
Until this weekend I didn’t know it was possible to get sick from stress. I suppose it has happened to others though. Dizzy after not taking care of my body or personal health, chronically tired, apathetic, lack of appetite, I just stayed in bed…. what a fun way to enter in to the last three weeks of school.
On the bright side, these next few weeks are PACKED with activity.
Well friends, it seems that the year is quickly drawing to a close, which means that you probably think I’m going to talk about how busy the end of the year is, what all I have to accomplish yet, and how much I’m looking forward to summer. Well, you’re right, kind of.
There is a lot to do, but so far I don’t feel overwhelmed. I need to write two or three more papers and memorize a monologue for my Living in Performance class. I don’t think that school will be too terribly hectic, but having lots and lots of Masterworks rehearsals towards the end of this week will probably stress me out. There’s one thing about having choir every day for an hour, and then there’s another thing about having it for four days straight for at least three hours at a time. As much as I love Poulenc’s Gloria and Stravinsky’s Requiem I feel like it’s going to be a struggle for me to stay attentive and optimistic facing such a grueling schedule. I’m not saying that so much practice is unwarranted either, we are not to the performance level with these pieces yet and could honestly use all of this practice time. It’s just…well…inconvenient for getting homework done and having a life. Oh well, it’s only 4 days.
