Hello once again!
My Spring Break went extremely well, as I visited an old friend of mine who is also an RIT alum in Clearwater, Florida. Spring Break for me was a blessing, and extremely relaxing. I finally got to go someplace warm for Spring Break, as I went to Seattle last year and all the years before that I went home. Nonetheless, I got to play with my friend’s new puppy, Lulu! Dogs really know the way to make you smile and make you feel refreshed. I’m finally all recharged up to get back in the swing of things.
The first week has already come and gone, I’m pretty much taking every opportunity I can get to meet with everyone before I depart from RIT. My feelings right now are all mixed, all good though, I promise! College has been an extremely fast paced environment, I can’t imagine what it’ll be like once I graduate! (Even though I had a small taste of life outside of RIT on Co-op.) As you may not know, this is RIT’s last academic quarter, EVER, before they make the transition to semesters. Thank goodness I’m graduating before that!
Right now, I’ve been busy with rush week — where all of the Greek Organizations on campus are recruiting for new potential members. My fraternity had dodgeball on one day, a movie the next night, and a simple information session. We ended our week with an excellent brotherhood retreat at our mansion, I surely will miss all of my brothers! Next week will be the final rush week (there’s two weeks in all), where all Greek Organizations are allowed to actively recruit new members, they cannot continue to rush in the following weeks after that due to RIT policy.
Academically, things are picking up, as I am taking four classes, two of which are classes in Deaf Cultural Studies. It’s already been an interesting week. Anyhow, I can finally start working ahead of time as all classes except one class is not an art related class. As an art major, I didn’t have this luxury, as each project relies on constant feedback as I work throughout the quarter.
As I think back now, I have definitely grown from a well known high school athlete to a designer, ready to make my mark on the world, I simply cannot wait to graduate! As usual, I’ll leave you with a few pictures of my spring break (of the puppy)!
Oh, and this was my morning flight to Florida, of the Finger Lakes region. It was absolutely beautiful and pictures don’t do justice!
