Maybe physics isn't so bad after all...




I know you all have been anxiously awaiting it, so here it is, a sneak peak of the bowling and physics experiment.

Physics is my easiest class?

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.

Why?

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.

Only 10% Irish, doesn't matter.

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.

I thought this was called spring “break?”


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.
