It’s Bipolar March!

Now that the diving season is over, I am relaxing and spending my time watching TV instead of going to practices…I wish! It’s officially the midterms week and more homework/studying time is replacing my diving practices times. Midterms week is always the most hectic and craziest week of the semester – worse than the finals week, I think.

I am going to talk about how excited I am for the bipolar March and March Madness! Little glimpses of warm and sunny days always give me hope for summer to return! I am longing for hot summer days, spending my time at the pool everyday coaching young divers, and walking my dog in the mornings. How great does that sound?

Speaking of bipolar, there was an ice storm passing by last week that literally froze my car shut! See the picture below and you can see the sheet of ice covering the whole surface of the doors, windows, and the handles. It was bizarre to see my car covered in ice instead of snow that night. A few days later, it is absolutely beautiful. It is sunny and warm (38 degrees is warm in Rochester) and I was so excited to give a tour to a family today.IMG_8481

I’m excited for April and May to come when it’s warm outside with the fields greener than green. Soon enough, there will be people laying in hammocks, throwing frisbees, playing baseball catch, long boarding around the bike path, and sitting by the water fountains. Again, how great does that sound?

About Natalie

Major: Biomedical Science

Hometown: Rockville, Md.

Why I Chose RIT: Before discovering what RIT has to offer academically and socially, I had a great experience meeting some of my great friends from Explore Your Future (EYF) 2011. I met numerous people who are just like me and I loved the campus right from the beginning. The interpreting, C-print and notetaking services are beyond my wildest dreams at RIT, providing everything you need for success.

Clubs/Activities: I am a diver on the RIT Swimming and Diving team and an NLC math and physics tutor. I also am a part of the Rock Climbing club and Premedical Student Association. There are still many more activities that I want to explore!

Hobbies/Interests: Besides diving, I enjoy swimming, playing ball, biking, skiing, painting and traveling. In other words, being outside on a sunny day!

What I Like Best About RIT: This place has everything you could possibly dream of, both on and off campus. You can get the rural, suburban and urban feeling within a 15-minute radius of RIT. RIT provides amazing concerts, many club sports/varsity teams, hundreds of clubs, off-campus events and every kind of support you could think of. I fell in love with my major because the professors are so engaged, knowledgeable and have a great desire to help and get to know their students. My general chemistry professor taught more than 200 students in a lecture, and he still remembers me two years later! The campus has much more to offer than I originally thought as a newbie.

Favorite T.V. Show: I enjoy watching “How I Met Your Mother,” “Full House,” “Boy Meets World” and “MasterChef.”

Fun fact about me: I did a handstand somersault off of a 10-meter platform during my training for national diving competitions in high school.
