rain, rain, rain

This past weekend I went with my fellow Platt-Howard CLAs to a retreat in a cabin near Hood River.  We did a little bit of work, but we mostly spent the time eating, sleeping, and visiting by the fireplace.  It was a much-needed break from the hectic weeks I’ve been having in my classes.

Back at LC, Activities Congress is scrambling to get the Fall Ball dance to go smoothly.  Historically, we’ve had a Homecoming dance that coincided with Homecoming week.  This year, for a number of reasons (the most pertinent being that the venue we wanted–McMenamin’s Crystal Ballroom–wasn’t available until this late in the fall)   We’ve been selling tickets at lunch and dinner, and have been in frequent contact with the venue, the student volunteers, the staff volunteers, the security, the bus company, etc.  It’s going to be a huge logistical marvel if/when it all comes together smoothly.

Tomorrow is a student art contest in the Platteau art center in Platt West.  There’s gonna be live student music, student art, refreshments, and all sorts of good times.

Midterms are mostly done, so that’s a good thing.  It has begun to rain every day, though.  I actually really like it, but I think some people are getting a bit stir-crazy after about a week of pretty solid precipitation.
