Well! It’s been 11 weeks, I think, since I’ve arrived at PUC. This past week has been, well… pretty good! I like the rain. It doesn’t rain this much in SoCal. This past week has been pretty normal for me. On Monday I went to class and I helped my two friends write their paper. Oh and I helped my friend Manny with his video too! I finally made it onto YouTube. (It’s a little embarrassing though).

Oh, this Tuesday was very interesting. I did the usual and went to work, fed the cows, then we went to cut up a tree that had fallen down on some power lines. Coworkers Roland and Kiera were too scared to get close to the lines but Steve, Allan, and I didn’t really care. But we were extremely careful still. Then we came back after it started sprinkling.

Overall, here at PUC it’s been great. I think it was a good decision to come here. The location is great and at work I get enough physical stress to balance out my mental stress. Oh! And I found some honeysuckle right in front of Irwin hall. I’ve gone to suck on a few flowers already. They remind me of Arkansas.

Today’s Colloquy was fun! It was the last Colloquy of the quarter—Student Association’s Christmas Colloquy. It was very entertaining to watch the students guess the answers to Christmas questions. I also voted on which charity or organization the REVO earnings should go to this year. And I had THREE donuts!!!! Man… I’m going to get fat. Well that’s been this week for me at PUC, so as you can see, I’m surviving pretty well.
