It’s the end of another week and here I am doing homework yet again. Overall, it’s been a pretty easy couple of weeks—not a lot of homework and getting some relaxing time after a busy previous quarter. I have been swimming quite a bit recently because it’s been really warm during the day, and I’m looking forward to getting more in shape this quarter.

SA Senate is meeting next week and as a senator I know I need to write a bill to try to get new furniture for our kitchen in Grainger Hall. As a Grainger RA, I have been trying to keep all the guys on my floor knowledgeable about all the cool events that are going to be going on this quarter during room check this week: MOG (Men of Grainger) chili cook-off, MOG golf tournament, some floor vs. floor tournaments, and man talk (the time to talk to guys about how to talk to women and about dating and marriage).

So far this quarter I’ve been working on a big research paper with my advisor that we’re trying to get published into a scientific journal about sea birds. I learned a lot about environmental science last year and have been trying to put into practice what I preach this year as I go about my day: trying to use less water, to not use as much paper, and to walk to more places rather than drive my car and pollute. Some of it has been a struggle to try to put into place, but it’s getting easier.

I expect it’s going to be a fun quarter, and I can’t wait for events like the REVO fashion show—a big event put on by the students to promote humanitarianism for a better world.
