Looking Up!

Had a much better week starting last Wednesday. I was asked to be on a panel of current students who received the Cultural Diversity Award, and answer questions from Juniors that attend EPIC Academy in Chicago. They had some great questions, and I am looking forward to doing it again next year. 

Saturday: 2nd outdoor Track meet of the Season. The vikings had a great two days of competition. (The meet started on Friday and was finished Saturday) I threw on Saturday and had a throw of 42”3. Not my best throw to date, but had good signs of improvement with my technique to be excited for the end of the outdoor season when it really counts. GO VIKINGS!

Saturday Evening: Had dinner with mom and dad. Always fun hanging out with them and catching up on the little things that you don’t hear about when you are away at school. After dinner,

Not What I Expected

This past week has been a giant roller coaster downward. Not a positive week I am sad to report. While fulfilling my 1 post a week quota, and still not offending anyone, I will do my best.

Classes: The 2nd week of classes definitely started to get “real” as opposed to the 1st week fluff. The expectations and faces of my teachers have really come out. All great classes and very interesting professors. The classes will be challenging, but not impossible. GO EDUCATION..lol.

Pledging: I am no longer pledging.

Week 1 Spring Term

Very busy schedule. It is never ending craziness and excitement at the same time. My classes seem very interesting and with great professors. Track and Field is starting its outdoor season this weekend with the home opener. Hope everyone has a good week and make smart decisions with what cookies and milk you consume :)

Winter Break Part 2

Okay, so it is actually Spring break but I just thought I should say something witty about the fact that it is March and spring break with still a good foot of snow on the ground.

Spending my first week of break at school preparing for CCIW Indoor Championships. It was a great meet, and a lot of fun to see some amazing throwers.

The second week was spent at home. Working out at a small place called The Sweatshop. They are getting an upgrade this summer to a much bigger facility. Great people and an even better workout.

Coming back Sunday and looking foward to a great Spring term. Have a great day and be sure to tip your waiter.

The Final Countdown!!!!

Roar! Finals were a lot more stressful this term. But the term has been surrounded by a lot of great things as well! Shot-put is going real well! Looking forward to the meet this Friday that starts at 6pm! Meaning we will be back on campus around 4am Saturday. Much sarcasm intended. I have successfully applied to become a CA next year! Looking forward to leading my own floor and helping students. Then the always exciting Greek life! I have turned in my preference sheet and will now wait until we all get back to see if I get a call, from one of the Greek presidents saying they would like to have me! Woot! woot! Party in the CSL

Gotta go study now for my Psychology final at 3! Wish me luck! Hope all is well with you my fantastic readers.

Love always

Thrown For a Loop

WOW! I have not been this exhausted since the end of my time serving in N.A.M. But I got through that, so I believe I will make it out on the otherside in one piece.

Classes for next term:
MWF: 8:30-9:45-First Class
10:00-11:15-Second Class
11:30-12:45-Third Class

Tuesday/Thursday: No Classes

Ya, you read that correctly. I have all of my classes on Monday, Wensday, Friday….I have my first 8:30class of my college career. Not impressed.

Friday Night: Track meet that started at 5o’clock and I got back on campus at 4am. I have still not recovered from the lack of sleep. I will be going to bed early tonight…..well right after the Season Premiere of Walking Dead:D

Have a great week! And may the odds ever be in your favor.

Just a good weekend:)

Friday: Intersquad track meet that was fun and allowed for some great teaching moments.

Friday evening: Formal Rush with Gamma Alpha Beta (GABS). It was an amazing event, with great speakers and livley conversation the entire night at all of the tables. Seem like amazing guys that I want to get to know better.

Later that evening my gf came over and we watched Breakfast Club. Great movie and even better company!

Saturday: a very lazy day. Went over to a teammates house before the basketball game, and then went to the game and cheered on the Vikings as loud as we could. Unfortunately it was not enough to help them to victory. Still love the guys and wishing them the best of luck in the next game.

Saturday evening: a great night! Really enjoyed myself and had some much needed” stress-free-not-a-care-in-the-world” evening. Really made me happy for the week to come.

Sunday: well, it was another lazy day with a very small(but all) amount of hw completed. After working at the westerlin front desk I joined some guys in my hall for the slaughtering of the Broncos. Very disappointing game to say the least.

Looking foward to a great week w/ a new happy attitude:) Hope you all have a great week as well!


Looking foward to finding the fraternity that can help and support me when I am having a rough day. I love helping people get back on their feet and make them smile. I am really hoping to find my brotherhood, my new support in my life.
