Goodbye Halloween, Hello Movember!

Hey everyone!

These last few weeks have been a little hectic to say the least. As my boss in Residence Life would say, “It is the “quarter wall” right now.” Where work is starting to pile up right around the 10th week, but we’re in the home stretch! It is absolutely crazy to think that I only have 19 weeks of classes before I graduate in May! But with graduation in mind, I have to start thinking of what’s next. Do I go to graduate school immediately after, or do I wait a while and gain more work experience? Only time can tell!

The past few weeks have been quite exciting, too. I’ll have to catch you all up. To begin, I am a part of the men’s club soccer team here at RIT and this year was the first time we have ever made it to the regional tournament. We had to beat out dozens of other area teams for a bid to make it to the tournament in Delaware, and we did it! It was a blast, and a great time to hang out with some of my friends that I’ve known for years now. They’re a great group of guys and are pretty good at soccer, too. At the tournament we ended up winning one game and losing the other two. We played Syracuse, Brown, and even Harvard. For the most part, the schools at the tournament were Division 1 and we, RIT, are Division 3. We knew it was going to be tough, and the teams were amazing. Overall it was a great weekend and I hope the team can make a habit of going to the regional tournament every year!

Next on my list is Halloween! On campus, it is great to see all the spirit and costumes that people have and wear towards the end of the week. It makes classes and campus feel a little bit different and even more exciting. There were different events such as small Halloween events hosted by different organizations on campus such as the residence halls, NTID Student Congress, and more. I got into the spirit as well since I started “reverse trick-or-treating” on my floor. I went around door to door, giving out candy from a Halloween cart. The surprise was great, and then again, who doesn’t love candy!

Even after the exciting past few weeks, I am definitely excited for winter break as I’ll be going to Disney World in Florida and then Japan for study abroad. Oh, and don’t worry… I’ll take plenty of pictures!

I almost forgot, for Thanksgiving, I’ll be going to NYC to watch the popular Broadway show “Spring Awakening.” There is definitely a lot on my plate and I love it!

Until next time.
