This semester, I was required by the honors program to take an honors seminar class that combines two opposite disciplines into one class in which the topic changes every semester. Being that I am graduating in a year, I felt like it was now or never to get this over with. Of course, this semester the topic was physics and sports. Being that I never took a physics class in my life, I hate math and I don't really care for science either, obviously the logical step was to register to take this class.
After freaking out the entire winter break about physics equations I might have to learn, I was entirely surprised that my physics and sports class has turned out to be my easiest class.
Because in honors program classes, we make the rules. Professors know we are already over-achievers, so they give us one assignment and let us do with it what we want.
Today, I am conducting my experiment to test the physics of bowling. I may not be too sure what I am doing, but I have done my research.
If there is one thing I can count on, I may not know physics but I am a communication major, so I can make my presentation stand out from others. Hopefully.
This weekend I took a break from interviewing and feature stories to have some fun with friends and attend some St. Patrick's Day festivities. Being that I just turned 21 in November, this was my first big St. Patrick's celebration and my first time being in the South Side for the event. Needless to say it was crazy but a really fun time. It was nice to forget about school for a while and just have fun with friends.
Although I'm barely Irish, St. Patrick's day has become a holiday for everyone. The beautiful weather this weekend had everyone out celebrating and it made me want summer to come asap.
In a little over a month, that wish will come true and I cannot wait.
If I wanted to not bore you in this blog, I would have to
make up everything I did/wanted to do during spring break.
As much as I would like to say I traveled on an amazing trip
to an exotic location, my reality for spring break is that I worked, worked,
worked…and worked. Between writing press releases for my internship, selling
Pandora bracelets at my retail position and interviewing what feels like half
of the RMU faculty and staff, my spring break has been anything but a break.
Instead of jetting off to Cancun, Mexico, I let my break
become a pathway away from stress in order to catch –up on homework.
In order to save my sanity, I did make some time for fun. I
got to see friends who came home from school, watch a live band, go to a food
tasting party. Nothing extremely glamorous, but I had to take what I could get.
To me, sitting around with my best friends tops any trip to
an exotic location anyways.
My most exciting part about break? Getting to shop for baby
things since I discovered I am going to be an aunt for the first time. All of
the stress of school, work, and internships melted away when I saw the little
peanut on my sister’s sonogram.
While my spring break wasn’t the most exciting event, I
figured I would save all of those exciting plans for summer…or it could be just
work, work and more work.
