For me, the first semester of the school year has never gone by very quickly. However, this year seems to be an anomaly. It has gone by SO fast, and I can't believe that we only have 30 days until Thanksgiving break! I am so excited to go home to see my family, but there are a LOT of things I have to get done before then! First of all, we just got paired with our Homecoming partners, the wonderful gentlemen of Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Chi Psi. The overall theme is Olympics, and our specific theme is Equestrian, which is going to be so much fun. We have some girls on the CU Equestrian Team, so we might even have a horse in our part of the parade! That would be really cool, although I hope the horse doesn't get too spooked!
Tomorrow night, our sorority has our Date Dash to the Grizzly Rose down in Denver. Unfortunately I will not be attending, but I'm sure it's going to be so much fun, and I really wish I could go! Next week we also have a Halloween themed mixer with the gentlement of Chi Psi, which is going to be awesome because we're dressing up in fun costumes and getting fortune tellers and watching scary movies and everything! Plus there's going to be pumpkin carving, which is my favorite part of Halloween in general!
Aside from all of this fun sorority stuff, there is some pretty serious school stuff to do as well. Including...drum roll please...registering for my last semester of college! It's really bittersweet, but I have already chosen my classes that I want to take, and I am so excited. I'm taking four classes: The Holocaust: An Anthropological Perspective, Catalan for Spanish Speakers, The Roman Empire, and Survey of Western Political Thought. I am really looking forward to my Roman Empire class, because my sophomore year I took part one, The Roman Republic, with the same professor, Tyler Lansford, and it was really one of my favorite classes and professors of all time. Professor Lansford knows so much about Rome and the Classics in general, and it amazes me how he can just ramble things off in Latin. Definitely one of the most knowledgeable people I've ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Well, that's it for now! I hope everyone is enjoying the fall and getting ready for Halloween!
