Ok. So I didn't do my whole once a week update to start out. Don't panic, I was just waiting to have enough things happen to keep you all enthrawled for days after you read this. So after that buildup, I would suggest not looking for anything to back it up. Sorry, that's the way it goes sometimes.
Homework really wasn't that bad until lthis past week (oh, yeah, that's the reason why I didn't update last week; I remember now), but this past week was crazy with two midterms, a speech, and a paper due all within four days (if you thought I was going to say one or two days, remember, I'm in college). That always seemed to happen in high school, too, with everything happening within a couple of days and then everything dying down. Two weeks ago I had a couple of readings to do and one short paper, and this coming week I have a couple of readings to do and one paper, but you already heard about the past week. I guess that's life, right? (Cue the lecture and ten mile walks in a blizzard with six foot high snow, in bare feet, with only one glove, when you were two years old).
The sports scene here has been, well, was better than the best word for 'best' you can think of about two weeks ago, and is now worse than the worst word for 'bad' that you can think of. If there was a Minneosta bowling leauge, two weeks ago we would've bowled a 400 (yes, it's impossible, but that's how good it was), with the Wild having made a bunch of good off-season moves, the Gopher hockey near the top of the rankings, and, most importantly, the Twins making their run to win the Central Division on the last day of the regular season, coming from a place more remote than Pluto (that, on a further note, sadly wasn't even good enough to stay a planet and apparently shrunk to become a "dwarf planet"). Now, we would not only scored a zero, but our bowling balls would bounced over to our opponet's lane and given them the chance to bowl a 600. The Twins got swept by Oakland, the Gopher's football team lost to Michigan last week and lost 28-27 to Penn State in overtime (we got the ball first and got a touchdown, but missed the extra point, and then Penn State went and got a touchdown and converted the extra point), and the Gopher hockey team lost their opener, after losing their starting goalie for three games for breaking team rules. Oh, and the Vikings lost last week too. Yes, the Wild did win their opener (in overtime), but they scored too soon, because everyone there wanted to see it go to a shootout (which happens now in the new NHL if the score is tied after overtime). I'm not that affected by it, I can live on, but a fair amount of these 'kids', specifically my roomate, are taking it pretty hard. If you know about Facebook, there are now a handful of groups with college kids saying the Gopher coach should be fired and stuff of the like (if you don't know about Facebook, disregard my last sentence and anything else about current technology I might write).
Moving on from that rant...
Two weeks ago we had Community Council elections and I got voted in as the Food/Facilities Chair. We had our first meeting, and, to my surprise, we did not talk about homecoming (one month away) for an agoning ten minutes. I'm not sure where to go after that, so I'll just write this sentence and see what happens. I still don't really know what I'm going to do with my position, but it does have something to do with food, I'm told. I'm not sure yet.
For the most part college has been...(it's not possible to capture the college experience in one word, so I'm not even going to try). It's cool being able to meet so many new people. There is literally always someone wanting to go do something, which is good and bad (good that you can go do something when you have free time with someone, bad that if someone is looking for something to do at 3 AM, they might let most everyone on your floor let you know about it). But, yeah, it's definately interesting (no, this is not that one word that describes college life; sorry to get your hopes up).
Anyway, I really should go and visit the top of my bed for a while, so I'll talk to you all relatively soon, I think.
