Just in case I haven’t already mentioned, I love football. Lucky for me, I came to a school who loves football just as much as myself. This weekend our team traveled to Barbourville, Kentucky to play Union College. The media team had our guys pretty pumped to win the rival game. You’ve got to watch this to understand… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvIYiexddTA
At the half it was 7-42…makes me wonder if the mayor of Barbourville left early? I sure hope so because our team stayed focused and motivated to score another touchdown and win the game 14-48; 50th win for Head Coach Bland and Largest Victory in the Battle for the Brass Lantern. UC is now 3-0 and #14 in the NAIA!
This week is also my birthday; the first one away from home. A bunch of my friends have birthdays in September as well so it sorta feels like I’ve been in birthday mode for the past couple of weeks. It’s kinda cool celebrating a new friend’s birthday about every other day. However, I wouldn’t trade my mom’s cake and dad’s “Now you’re an adult…” lecture for anything! I remember last year I was so excited to think that next year I would be celebrating with new friends in the ‘Burg. I’m still excited and trying to stay optimistic since I’m away from my twin. I thank God for skype and snail mail. Either way I’m happy for the both of us and if she is reading… HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
One thing I suggest you keep in mind next year is when and when not to do laundry. For example, unless you like waiting in line for a washer then waiting another 45 minutes to a hour for a dryer, I encourage you to not wait til Sunday to do your laundry. I kept putting it off and finally got to Sunday and I thought it was never going to get done. But you know me, I had to find something while I waited. It’s funny how somethings work out. Like how I just happen to notice a group of my football buddies out the window walking together and my brilliant mind quickly working on a prank. I picked up my car keys and waited til they got just about in front of my car and pushed the alarm button to watch them jump and freak out. I would call myself an evil genius – but I didn’t catch it on video and post it on here. Maybe someone can do it next year (hint,hint!).
For the past few days it has been pretty rainy and cold here. Having that said, comfty rain boots and an umbrella that can fit in your backpack is a must-have! The weather here is somewhat unpredictable so you need to be prepared for any kind of weather. When you move-in in August, even though it’s pretty hot, you’ll want to have a light jacket handy. Plus if you live far away you don’t want to make a trip back home to get a hoodie and pants. Then when the winter gets here it will be easier to change out your wardrobe. Of course, the store of all stores, Wal-mart, has your back. The one in Williamsburg isn’t up to par like the ones in Corbin or London but they have your basics.
