After 7 weeks of school, fall break couldn’t come at a better time. Last week was probably the most stressful because I had a paper due on Monday and a math test on Tuesday. Granted, I probably procrastinated a lot. But it was also homecoming week, which came with activities that conveniently happened during the time I usually do homework.
Homecoming week activities included The Mabee Games (kind of like Olympics, but with tug-of-war, human pyramid, and a HUGE SLIP AND SLIDE ON THE GYM FLOOR!), Casino Night (it was a black tie affair and there was poker tables and dancing and getting dressed up), and Campus Sing (basically Glee but a Capella) and every event was pretty much a pep-rally as well with a lot of screaming for the spirit stick, which the first years never won. Saturday’s football game was bad. Me, Kendyl and LeiLei left after halftime and we ended up losing to SBU, 0-35.
Monday this week was one of those weird days where you could tell everyone on campus was just having “one of those days” plus it was cloudy and rainy. Everyone was just exhausted from homecoming week and fall break was looming and everyone was just ready for break… that was me anyway.
So as many of you know, I’m currently taking violin lessons here. And they’ve been going really really well actually. My goal coming to Jewell and doing music was to eventually get into the symphony. And my professor told me at the beginning of the semester that I could potentially be ready for the symphony by my sophomore year or possibly my 2nd semester of my first year. He told me a couple weeks ago that I should start thinking about whether or not I want to do symphony because he says I’m on that level!! I didn’t think it would happen so quickly though. And ever since that week, he’s been pushing it and it’s so hard to resist…. So hopefully my schedule for next semester will include symphony! I’m so excited!!! And also today (well yesterday if you want to get techincal) I got new music (a big deal from a musician)!!! Salut d’Amour by Elgar. It’s really pretty if you want to youtube it. But don’t expect me to be that good if you ever hear me play it!
Tonight we went out to the Cheesecake Factory for Lei’s birthday. It was quite fun and I got really full on the Factory Burger and Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake. The people sang to Lei when they brought out her cheesecake… but she got really embarrassed. Haha! She also left her glasses in my car and couldn’t read the menu. Then she asked if anyone would walk back to the car (parked over by Barnes and Noble) with her to get them, and after nose-goes-ing, I was chosen, unfortunately. Lame-o.
Currently I’m at my dad’s house. I’ll be leaving Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania tomorrow morning to visit my cousin and her new baby daughter (She doesn’t have Eye Flaps)! I’m so excited. She’s sent me a few pictures and she’s supers cute! 🙂
That’s all for now from Indepimpdence! Hope all is well with you all where ever you are! Miss you lots!
P.S. I had to take Zac and Dasha home today…. I’ll update later with that inside info.
