The To Do List Just Keep on Growing...

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Even though I have been in school for the past 16 years of my life (if that doesn't make me feel old, I don't know what will,) I have still yet to understand why teachers think that the last two weeks of the semester is the PERFECT time to give all of the projects, presentations, and papers possible. This past week was filled with 3 presentations and an exam, while the week that is coming up has 2 presentations, a final project, an essay and a debate. Then comes finals week! Ugh.

Graduation Paperwork

Can it be? Is it really so? You want my permanent address so you can... gasp... send me my diploma?

Cast off-- Celebrate good health!

Friday, April 27, 2012

 

WHOO!!! The day has come! After five weeks of being confined to a cast around my wrist, the doctors finally sawed that baby off. It was the most liberating feeling, even though my ligaments and muscles are still pretty tight. Now I can ride my bike again, I can open doors again, I can put on socks again, and I can use a can opener! It’s really amazing to realize the simple tasks that are actually quite difficult to do when you don’t have access to both of your hands.

Costa Rica!

Friday, April 27, 2012

 

Spring break is the perfect respite between the semester—it falls right after mid terms are over and reenergizes you for the last push of the semester. This year, I went to Costa Rica with my family for one last family trip. Though I had broken my wrist a few weeks before, I came equipped with a water proof cast, plenty of sun screen, and a thirst for some adventure!

Spring Break Build Up... To travel or not to travel?

Friday, April 27, 2012

 

A few days before Spring Break, the anticipation regarding my plans was getting unbearable. Either I was going to be taking a trip to Costa Rica with my family—enjoying the sun, checking out the rain forest, seeing wildlife and learning to surf—or getting surgery on my fractured wrist. I was definitely hoping for the first option since, as my last spring break ever, I really wanted to spend some quality time with my mom and my sister.

Greek Week

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

This past week was Greek Week for sororities and fraternities. Each sorority is paired up with one or two fraternities and compete in different competitions throughout the week. This years theme, decided by the panhellenic board, was tv channels. The different themes were themes such as entertainment television, tv land classics, and nickoledon tv shows. My team's theme was animal planet so we had our competitions revolving around things to do with animals.

Words With Friends and Myself.

Monday, April 23, 2012

Random  issues that have come up with friends and acquantances (and my own self) over the past few months:

1. 'O' is a letter and '0' is a number. It is ridiculous that we put 'O' in place of zero. How does F-U-N-M-I-L-A-Y-Zero sound?

2. Song of the year: Gift of Acceptance by Idan Raichel and India Arie.

"We can debate till the end of time who's wrong and who si right

Or I can honor your choices and you can honor mine..."
