Hey all,

It is ninth week. It’s the week that everybody freaks out since everything (like four courses worth of projects and papers) is due next week at the same time. It is worse for me because I don’t have finals during the final week only because all are happening next week. I have final paper and two exams due next week. 🙁

I pulled an all-nighter last night to write a paper on the top of long and busy week.

To make myself feel better and to de-stress, I bought this cute doll.


Cute, right?!

This is a cute version of the kissing disease also known as mono. I love collecting GIANT microbes and this is my second one. The first one I bought is the heart worm.

Now, I feel like I can take the 10th week down with my kissing disease on my side. 😀

About Danica

Name: Danica Metlay

Major: Biology

Hometown: Rochester, N.Y.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT because it’s a place where the hearing and deaf worlds come together. I wanted to have the experience of living and learning with both deaf and hearing students to better prepare me for the real world after I graduate. RIT also has great access services that are hard to find anyplace else.

Clubs/Activities: I’m current president of WOLK (Deaf Jewish Cultural Club) and work as an English tutor, NTID tour guide and intern at Hillel House. I used to be a committee member for the Rockfest Weekend, treasurer of Asian Deaf Club, an orientation assistant and intern at the Seneca Park Zoo.

Hobbies/Interests: I love traveling, reading books, skiing and hanging out with friends. I like to cook and bake, and I’m kind of addicted to Pinterest, because I enjoy finding new recipes and DIY projects to try.

What I like best about RIT: I like being busy and that’s easy to do at RIT. There always are events happening on the RIT campus and most of the time, they are accessible. I like that people at RIT are diverse, and I enjoy learning about their cultures and their various academic and personal interests.

Favorite T.V. Show: “Once Upon A Time.”

Fun Fact About Me: I love Mexican and Asian food, but I cannot stand eating spicy food.
