This weekend has been so full of ups and downs: it’s like a sine curve (okay, I know that was really lame, but I had to at least try, right? :) )!
Thursday started out absolutely atrocious, especially since the CoC servers were down: I couldn’t even run the autograder, which takes less than 5 minutes to run. It was very frustrating. Friday was amazing, thanks to SAB’s Mafia Night. I told the SAB Chair (who is a friend of mine and also a really awesome guy to get to know because he’s a ton of fun) that they need to do this at least once a year, if not more often, and he seemed to agree.
Yesterday was also a good day: we had a 4-hour meeting, but it was pretty productive. After that, I went to Wal-Mart. You know, the one thing I miss about NH is the fact that there is SALES TAX on everything here! Up in NH, $3.99 means $3.99, not $4.31 (if you are buying a personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut in the Student Center). I guess that just goes to show how much I have stopped by there in the past 3 years or so. Anyway, afterwards, we spontaneously decided to eat at La Parrilla, where one of my really good friends used to work. They have really good food, and if you like Mexican, I totally recommend it: there are really hearty portions there, as well. After that, I have just been reading, reading, reading, since last night, for an exam on Thursday.
Don’t forget to turn your clocks forward: it’s now 1:44, not 12:44. I think we shouldn’t turn our clocks forward: us GT students do not get enough sleep as it is anyway, with the amount of things there are to do. Then again, that’s what makes college college, so it’s completely worth sacrificing a few hours of sleep here and there.
So I wake up today, and it turns out that people are actually reading this blog, and it shows up on Google Alerts! How exciting is that! :) And now, it will be featured on the CoC Student Blogs page. All of the people on there are pretty awesome (I know a lot of them), so I would say make sure to go here and check this out. Anyway, so that’s been my sine curve of a weekend, and I am really excited to have this opportunity to share my blog with everybody. I hope people will be able to see, if nothing else, why college is such an amazing experience, despite the roller-coaster ride that it presents. Alas, as I always say, as? es la vida… or if you are French, c’est la vie!
Only 4 more days until Spring Break… keep that countdown rolling! :)
