Life Update

So I don't really have anything deep and intellectual to talk about in this post. But I thought I would just give an update on my life as of late.

First of all, this past week and a half has easily been the most stressful of my college career to this point. I had all sorts of projects and tests and quizzes, all of which I felt very unprepared for. However, I worked really hard, and I think I actually ended up doing pretty well on most of the stuff I had to do. My Financial Management class is looking like it will be the death of me though. I had a project due today in that class where a partner and I had to write a 10 page paper and give a 15 minute presentation after compiling loads of data and calculating ratios. Basically, that is the main reason I had no weekend! Well, that and the photography project, marketing test, and journalism article. Isn't it lovely when prof's all make everything due the same day! :) Let's just say I am more than glad to be done with the past week and a half.

When classes started this semester, I was really worried that I was going to be in over my head with my newly picked up graphic design major. Within the last few weeks though, I think it was a good decision for me. I am excited to keep learning about those sorta things and putting it into practice. I'm still not sure if I have the artistic/creative ability that I need, like my brother has, but I am hoping it will come as I keep working with it... Really hoping!

Conditioning for basketball is going rather well, other than having shin splints, which hurt like crazy! We are in our 4th and final week of conditioning, and we start actual practice on Monday. I am very much looking forward to that! Despite the fact that conditioning has been quite difficult, I have actually had a good time with some of the stuff we have done. For instance, one day, we all went to Columbus and went through the SWAT team obstacle course, which was a challenge, but fun nonetheless. Also, I have enjoyed taking on the challenge with my teammates. We all get along really well together and always have a good time with each other. It will definitely be nice to actually work on things with a basketball. Sweet relief!
Photography project. My shoes in MVNU gym. 
Random: I recently saw a picture of my roommate with his girlfriend and my roommate in which my roommate was wearing a Dennis Rodman jersey. I commented on said picture sarcastically remarking that it is probably not a good sign that he has Rodman for a role model. She responded by saying that Rodman wasn't that good of a player either. To this, I refuted by providing statistical evidence of his dominant rebounding prowess. Then, I became further intrigued as to how good he really was and watched some highlights of him and was really impressed. His hustle is like none other I have ever seen. I think this year, I am going to try to emulate Sir Rodman in every way possible. Does anyone have some hair dye I can borrow??

My motivation for this season!
