As the snow is slowly beginning to melt, students are keeping busy studying for midterms and finalizing spring break plans! This next week of classes is the only thing between me and warm sand between my toes! My brother and I will be in the Caribbean for break, and that will be the perfect fix as it has been freezing down here in Southern Indiana. It has been a busy week for me- both in and out of the pool. I've had two tests this week and the swim team is preparing for our conference championships next week in Geneva, Ohio! I can't wait to compete in my last meet of the year and be somehwere 80 and sunny the days following the meet!
When you arrive in Evansville to attend UE, you won’t stay here. I don’t mean you’re bound to transfer, but when you head to college I’ve noticed the tendency is then to continue to travel. It’s almost as if college sets you in motion and that takes you to new places near and far from campus. Two weekends in a row I’m able to visit a new city, last week was Bloomington and this weekend it’s Cincinnati!
It is absolutely crazy to think about how long we have been at Harlaxton so far! Time is flying by so fast and we have extremely mixed feelings about it. Most of us have some feelings of homesickness and miss our American lifestyles, but we will still struggle to get on the plane when the end of April comes around.
Came into the office this morning with this sitting on my desk. We won the MLS Cup in 2013 and as part of the celebration, Sporting KC teamed up with Boulevard Brewing to make a campionship ale. It makes a nice paper weight in my cubicle!
Woke up this morning to about three inches of snow covering my apartment and a lovely message from UE informing me that classes have been canceled for the day! While I am more than ready for some warm weather to be here, what student doesn't love getting a snow day?! It is especially great getting snow days in college because you don't have to worry about making up the missed days at the end of the year. I'll be spending most of my snow day watching some movies and making hot chocolate (and probably getting some inevitable studying and homework done too). But at least we get a little break from classes and can spend the day relaxing at home!
You’ve logged hours of driving, written and rewritten essays, sweat through interviews, suffered under proctor’s stares during standardized tests, and ultimately applied to a few choice colleges and universities. It all revolves around that elusive question asked of high school seniors – where are you going next year?
As part of my role at Sporting KC, I am in charge of the team´s communications efforts in Spanish. This past week I created content for the team´s Spanish Facebook and twitter pages. There are a great deal of Hispanics in Kansas City who love soccer so this market segment holds great potential for Sporting KC.
So what happens when you throw over 10,000 writers, editors, publishers, and students into a room full of creative writing journals and free pens?
Don't look at me. I'm not going to spoil it.
