Today is Sunday.
I have been in the Honor's Suite since 11am working on reading for Feminist Theory, and still have two articles to read. I want to have my reading done for Religion by tonight too. I can't believe that tomorrow is already Monday.
This weekend was Scholarship Weekend. Students from all over came on Friday afternoon to visit Augsburg and to compete for scholarships. I helped as tour guide, and later I went to the "Big Show" featuring Bob Groven. The Big Show was a spoof off of Conan O'Brian, and was over all pretty funny, in spite of some questionable humor.
After that I was pretty lost. I did not get a prospective student to host this year, and that made me feel sad, so Erica and Alex shared. We stayed up until the wee hour of 12:15am watching a killer curling match between Canada and Denmark. It went into "overtime" (or whatever the curling equivalent is) and Canada placed their last rock dead center. It was awesome. Far more fun than more common sports...
That reminds me of a personal revelation I had recently about my musical tastes... (It makes sense because it ties into how I appreciate sports...) Last Thursday, Colin and I went over to Steve's apartment to hang out and listen to music. Listening to music with people is a challenge for me because I am in constant fear of being asked, "What do you want to listen to next?" AAAAH! Only this time, I actually suggested Big D and the Kids Table, the album I listened to with Steve a while ago and really liked. It was empowering. I know that Steve likes it, but I don't know how Colin really feels about ska, but you know, I listen to SO much music that I don't necessarily like while with others that it really felt good! *Deep Breath.
After that we watched a movie of questionable taste, and departed. My weekends are on Thursday and Friday. Real weekends are too busy.
Last weekend I went on a Library date with Visser at Central Library. We went on a few last spring, and it provides a nice excuse to hang out under the pretense of getting things done. Which I did. After studying, Visser showed me Potbellies, and we plotted our future adventures across the country.
Last weekend was also Trivia and Valentine's Day. Good to know.
Tuesday is a Gospel Praise Concert with Zeitgeist. We are going to play some WEIRD music.
Life is going well as we plod through February. I think I have been suffering a little from the winter blues, and many of my friends have expressed similar feelings. I love snow, I love the cold, and I love winter, but each day like today, when the sun is out, and the snow melts in streams, and exposes the muddy yellow grass, I get really happy... Too bad we still have to get through March.
Luckily, March will bring band tour, and its dependable lamb-like departure.
My last blog about the Rainforest Action Network elicited SEVEN comments. I so far haven't done any follow up, but I still plan on becoming involved at least a little bit next year.
