Sweet Stories for RIT/NTID

What are you doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2014?  Whether it’s treating yourself to some chocolate or taking someone out for a nice dinner, I hope you have a safe weekend. I have been thinking of Valentine’s Day in 1990, which was the first time I was able to go home after I was born in December; because it was after my heart transplant. How ironic, I got to go home on America’s “heart day.”
This Valentine’s Day will be a little different for me. A man in my life asked me out on a date in front of all my beautiful sorority sisters a few days ago. It was quite dramatic, since he appeared by  jumping out of a huge red box that I had to open, and handed me a single red rose. Needless to say, I was speechless! I was surprised, and appreciated his creativity and thoughtfulness.
I am looking forward to February 20, when my sorority, Sigma Sigma Sigma, is hosting a fundraising event on campus AND YOU ARE ALL INVITED! For $3.00 you get to eat all the dessert you want! You can’t go wrong with sweets!
In the meantime, between classes I constantly study my lines for “Damn Yankees,” an upcoming play that I will perform in this March. I love the cast and I am having so much fun making new friends!
I better go back to reading “Much Ado” for my Drama & Theater class!
Have a Sweet Day!
