Time flies…

…when you’re having fun! This weekend was one of the busiest ones of the semester so far. SAAC hosted two events: powderpuff football and the fall carnival. Also, my best friend and her sister came to visit me for the weekend! On Saturday we went downtown and watched my friend’s boyfriend in the UNC football game versus PSU. It was quite an exciting game, and cheering for the visiting team was an experience. I love football games, but man oh man was it cold!! On Sunday was the much anticipated FALL CARNIVAL! The student-athletes totally rocked this event. We had almost every team represented, and the booths were super creative! Unfortunately someone (not us) dropped the ball on the publicity end and we did not get the participation that we were hoping for. Those 7 kids had a great time though, and the athletes just ended up playing at each others’ booths. Being that it was our first year, I think it was a success because everyone came through enthusiastically on our end. It is going to be an annual event, so I am positive that it will continue to grow. All that time and effort that I put into it seemed at first to just be all for nothing, but then I saw the athletes mingling and playing with the little kids and I knew we had accomplished our goal of bridging some gaps. All in all I had fun putting it all together, and I know that it’s just going to get better as the years go on.

Things on the homework end have been a bit quiet, still. It’s like the calm before the storm. I’ve been assigned two longish term philosophy papers, so I’m going to spend some of my break wrestling with Epicurus, Aristotle and Nozick. On that same note…it’s almost Thanksgiving!! I leave tonight to drive with my roommate and some friends up to Seattle. We’re adopting one of my good friends for the weekend and I’m excited for her to see my life away from L&C. I’m sure I’ll have some interesting stories from the weekend to share. Now I’m off to eat some lunch and pack up all my laundry (I never pass up an opportunity to do free laundry) before I head off to my last class. What am I thankful for? Well, right now I’d have to say my fleece blanket because it’s freezing in my room!

Until later,
Jess
