It’s madness alright.

Week five of the semester officially lapped me in this race to the end of the quarter. Yeah, that’s right, midterms are here, and feel like I’m losing.

In between KidzReach, school, three jobs, friends and relationships I feel like a deflated balloon. But luckily, it’s not that bad since I enjoy almost everything I have to do.

Even if I am semi-drowning in work, sports are here to save me. Football season is one of the highlights of my weekends and Mondays… even though they don’t air east coast games here (my Redskins are number one in their division right now). And PUC basketball is only one week away from their first official game. Midnight Madness on Tuesday, which really just reminded me of a late night pep rally, was actually pretty fun and got me hyped for the Pioneers season. I can’t wait for the crazy calls, the close games, and the buzzer shots. My nerves are already camping out in front of the gym.

They’ll probably stay there for a while considering the weekend after is Fall Fest. It should be interesting to see what sort of creative tactics clubs will use to raise funds and recruit members this year. I personally can’t wait for Sol Club’s pupusas. Mmm…

I guess all things considered I should take midterms with a grain of salt.

So here’s to all the crazy nights of going off the hill with your friends when you have a presentation the next day, or writing an extra page on your paper an hour before class because you thought it needed to be five pages long when it actually needed to be six. To staying up until midnight to claw your way through a crowd for a tee shirt, or having “study” sessions all night to prepare for the midterm in your hardest class.

At least it’s not as crazy as finals week.
