Orange and black, ATTACK! ATTACK!

So tonight I am caught in my bed with a mild headache and am missing reverse-trick-or-treating!  Agape is going around giving candy to people tonight, in costume of course, and I am stuck in bed.  Not cool.  But a group did stop by my room twice!!  Carolyn made cupcakes (I have yet to eat it…) and Kelsey and Jen delivered one to me!  Later they made their official stop and handed out candy to my roommate, and came in and said hello again.  I think this headache will go away with sleep.  So I might actually be going to bed at 9:30.  Awesome!

That being said Halloween is definitely stirring – RAKE, Random Acts of Kindness, Ect. Decorated pumpkins and put them around campus.  They have self-affirming messages on them like “smile” and “breathe”.  Finding them around campus was my small adventure of the day.  There are some very talented artists and climbers in that group (how did that pumpkin get up there?).  I am going to be a shark for Halloween!  My friend Karen has this towel-thingy that has a hood on it with shark teeth, eyes and a fin.  I think they were made with the intention of making it easier to dry little kids with towels after a swim, but hey, I can enjoy it too!  There have definitely been some creative costumes.  Jessica and Rachael from Agape both dressed like doctors and together they made a “pair-of-docs”!  I needed about six clews to understand that one, but I love it.

With a bittersweet ending, Crew has come to a close, for now.  The fall season ended on Sunday with the Portland Classic Regatta.  I rowed in the Women’s Open Eight, and it was a fantastic row.  We were focused throughout the entire thing and as a team we had portland-fall-classic-2009.jpga great time.  On the way back we hooked up an iPod to the speaker system in the boat and got to listen to music on our row back!  It was great to end the fall season as a team.  Orange and Black, ATTACK! ATTACK! is our Crew cheer, and it is even fitting for the Halloween season.

Today my midterms are done!  I feel good about my E&D test, and I am just going to go with it.  No stress, it’s done.  I met with my advisor, Mary today about what classes I should take next semester.  There is a new class on the origins of the universe that is taught by four professors (from the physics, geology, biology and chemistry departments) which is catching my interest.  However it is at the same time as the New Testament class that I want to take.  Another idea is to take the Intro to Sociology class so that I get a taste of the two departments that I am thinking about majoring in.  This semester I am in two English classes, and if I take a Religious studies class and a SOAN class then I will have a good knowledge of what I want to do in the future.  It is a very good problem to have!  Also, I am not guaranteed to get into the classes that I want to, but either way I have a good game-plan.

I am going to go to bed!  Those words sound so wonderful right now!  In college, make sure to get enough sleep, especially if you are sick.  I am going to listen to my advice and peace out.  Questions about ghosts, lions, tigers or bears?  Send them my way!


‘Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
~William Shakespeare

p.s. For some reason my computer is not letting me upload some awesome pics to this blog, so I will get that sorted out and then let you see them!  Sorry!
