This blog is all over the place.
Last week was extremely hectic for me. A few tests, a few interviews, a few papers and then the career fair. This weekend I am going to the football game with one of my sorority sisters at Norfolk State University. It should be a total blast! Can I tell you something? I’ve never really been into football until now. I was one of the lucky tribals who witnessed the William and Mary victory first hand at the University of Virginia. Not only was the score an incredible 26-14, but I got to see a lot of my old friends from high school at the game. The William and Mary Athletics Department has a new initiative called The Tribal Fever. Joining the group has been one of my best decisions so far senior year. We are your traditional pep club on steroids. T-shirts, hats, face and body paint, bus trips, cheer practice, you name it, we’ve got it! I’ve also been juggling The Tribal Fever with pep band. We are going to put together a show soon so come out and support!
In other news, I got a new 2010 Ford Focus. Yes, my yellow beetle is no more and I really, really upgraded. Like most people when they get a new anything, it takes some time to adjust. I’ve been practicing my parallel parking skills and coupling them with learning how to actually operate the sun roof, hazard lights and windshield wipers. Oh the glories of new beginnings! I called my mom and dad randomly this week and made a HUGE DEAL to them about how much I love the car, how much I needed it and what a big step up it is (insert The Jefferson’s theme song here).
I also cut my hair. Six inches. Cutting my hair was a big decision, but something I have been talking about for at least six months now. It all worked out. Like my vehicle, I’m still getting used to it, but overall, I don’t regret anything. I’m a firm believer in shaking things up a bit and the reviews were excellent from my friends on facebook. So if facebook fans like it, you know it’s legit.
Big plans for the next couple of weeks. I’ve got a few stories I am working on for W&M News. My roommate is the president of Orchesis, the modern dance performance group on campus, and they will be performing soon enough! The career center is hosting a graduate school fair, midterms are already here, and celebrations for Hispanic Heritage Month are on their way.
One last thing. Last night was brilliant. I got to see Austin, Ryan, Tildi, Alisan, Janet, JB and Richard all in one place. I think we are all pretty desperate for an intern reunion. More to come, stay tuned. This is a wonderful beginning to an amazing senior year.
