My Halloweekend is consisting of staying in because baseball is on. That’s pretty much it. I participated in a Trick or Treat program at school in my housing area, and it was so cute to see all of the little kids in their costumes. I dressed up as Minnie Mouse and decorated the front of our apartment.
Tomorrow is the first football game since Alumni Weekend the first weekend of October. The team is 7-0, the only undefeated team in their conference – and they’re ranked 21st in the nation. I’m excited for them, and they have a very good chance of going undefeated the rest of the season. They haven’t won their conference since 2011, so I know this year’s seniors would love to win another conference title.
Last night I went out with some of my friends to the bar, and it probably wasn’t the best place to bring a Giants fan when the Patriots are playing on Thursday Night Football. Besides not having a care in the world about the game on TV, I actually had a lot of fun and it was great to be able to relax and laugh about stupid things.
I’m glad that I’ve been enjoying my senior year so far, even though I’ve been so busy. Midnight Madness is next Friday, and I can’t wait for it to come and be over with already. I’m pulling double duty as an e-board member and senior council member. But once it’s over, I’m applying for Spring Event, again. At this point, after two years of doing it, it’s not like I can’t not apply. The other day when I was at work in Student Activities, the assistant director/Spring Event advisor said to me, “Why haven’t I gotten an application from you yet?” Someone asked me today if I was going to apply for chairperson, and it has crossed my mind, but I’ve already done two years of publicity and I know what I’m doing, so why change? Plus I don’t know if I’d want that much responsibility during my last semester of college.
Speaking of my last semester of college, I pick classes November 9th. Eek! I’m planning on taking: senior seminar, meteorology, writing for business, language in communication, and principles of marketing. This semester has actually been pretty okay academically wise; as of midterm grades, I had all A’s, which I was very happy about.
Last week, I had the opportunity to speak in a class that I took in the spring – business communication. A few people from my internship over the summer were going to be speaking in that class, and they invited me to come and talk about my experience as an intern. It was great to see them again, and I found out that I am definitely in their future plans at the company. They are trying to move one of their newest employees – who graduated from WNE this spring – into sales so they can bring me in as an account manager. It was a great feeling to know that they want me to work there and they’re thinking about me.
Ice cream closes Sunday, which marks the end of my sixth season there. I can’t believe I’m going to start my seventh season next year, and hopefully I’ll have a job so I’ll only work weekends. It’s a nice little job to have, plus the free ice cream is always nice.
Here’s to hoping that November isn’t as crazy, but let’s be real, the craziness isn’t going to end until I leave for winter break.
