Hello dear friends long time no talk!! I am currently writing this on Thursday night of midterms as I should be writing a philosophy paper that is due in 3 hours 🙂 However I am tired and do not want to think about why I believe that God exists right now so I thought I’d put up a quick update!
As I am sure you have noticed from the group chat I have been just a lil’ stressed but it is all good! I am doing well in exactly zero classes but I am just telling myself that C’s get degrees! This week has honestly been the longest week of my whole life: I have gotten a collective total of about 10 hours of sleeps over the past 4 nights and I am just exhausted… Yesterday I woke up from yet another accidental nap at 8:25 when I had to be at the pool at 8:30. Apparently I was extra tired because when Erin walked in she said I was asleep literally standing with one leg on my bed in the process of climbing up (I have top bunk). Anyways, I made it halfway to the pool, and proceeded to receive a flood of texts from the GroupMe saying no practice (wifi here is super shotty & Verizon does not get good service). Needless to say the walk back to Cav was halfway “I hate myself” & halfway “God bless I can now go start studying for my calc exam.”
In other news, we had our SYR (“screw your roommate” –– it used to be that you set your roommate up with someone for this dance but now it is just called that for tradition) last Friday & it was so much fun!! Our theme was “Naughsome Nineties” (like CavaNAUGH) and so we all dressed up in our most 90s clothing (aka Rachel from “Friends” wannabes). I took my friend Rob who is super fun & we all had a blast (even though we were annoyed because parietals started at 10:30pm instead of 2am as usual).
The weather is getting cold & I am understanding what they mean by “permacloud,” although still unsure whether this is a real term or just slang for the fact that there is never sun. We have a home game this weekend vs. Stanford & we are going to lose but it’s fine because someone is coming to VISIT (@katiekrappman)!!! Then on Sunday I am going home for fall break & one of my friends who lives across the hall is coming with me! She’s from Panama so it doesn’t make sense for her to go all the way but also it is depressing here over fall break apparently. I am so excited to have actual fruit not from a bag & loaded with chemicals and pet my dog and see people I actually know.
This is not a very comprehensive update but I really do need to write this paper so I am going to go do that… hopefully LOL.
Here is another Dome pic –– the leaves are changing and I am high-key obsessed.
I forgot to check the weather before I left for my 3 hr. chem lab because it was sunny out so I just assumed ??? Lesson learned: never assume that sun means it will not rain.
Katie, Christina, & I –– you probs have seen many pics of them 🙂
A nice roomie snap minus Savannah as usual because she had lacrosse in Maryland so she couldn’t even go to Cav SYR 😦
Finally Rob & Mike (Christina’s date) in their 90s turtlenecks––they refused to tell us what they were wearing so we were nervous but honestly it could’ve been way worse
