Week 8

This week was a good one, besides the unpredictable weather. When I say unpredictable, I mean literally. One day it was 62 degrees out then the next day, the temperature dropped to 35 degrees. Typical Rochester.

There were a lot of fun events going on this weekend. FreezeFest along with other fun events, such as Rock the Boat (and more but I did not attend to them except the ones that I am mentioning on this post).  Joel McHale actually came to do a stand up comedy for RIT and I am proud to say that I got to see him walk past me at the gym. I had no idea that McHale is really tall! During FreezeFest, one of the fundraiser was $1 for playing with puppies from the rescue shelter. The lines were incredibly long and it was too cold outside so I am bummed to say I was unable to play with the adorable puppies!

Rock the Boat is an event by TriSigma, a deaf sorority at RIT- it was a fundraiser for children in hospitals.  They had good music, dancing, food, and “jail-time” where they’d put you in jail and someone would have to pay 25 cents to bail you out. I enjoyed it, I got to see some old friends and met some new people there as well. It’s a fun place to interact with people and to enjoy yourself.

Today is the SUPERBOWWWWWLLL!! I am supporting the Ravens, mainly because they are the underdogs. Even though I am from Chicago and should probably support 49ers since they are NFC and the Ravens are AFC, but like I said, I think it would be nice if the Ravens have a chance to win the superbowl.

I have SO much homework to do that I am mad at myself that I was unable to get much done but that is what Monday all day is for! Time management at its finest 🙂
