Why Should We Be Anything But Strangers?*

This weekend was definitely a disappointment in terms of college football. I knew that Cal couldn’t possibly stay undefeated until we had to play USC. Basically just waiting for the ball to drop. It was just unfortunate that it had to once again be against UCLA…at the Rose Bowl (on the irony of that!) Bye bye Rose Bowl berth! And then we lost to Michigan which was the real punch in the stomach for an already shifty game.

However! At least Steele came down from Chi-Town and there was lots of fun all around Campustown.

I’m going home in less than a month! :) I do want to work on black friday since I don’t care much about shopping on that day. Anyway, there was a kid at JKaye’s party who really wanted to play with my iPhone. As if saying no wasn’t enough, he kept trying to drag me away from my friends to bother me some more about it (more like begging actually). Just ask nicely? Jerk.

So I really have not blogged in a super-long time here (sorry!). This year has definitely been a lot busier than i thought it would be. In between all the schoolwork, Illini Pride events (’cause I actually go to most, if not all the events now), 13 hours of work a week, it doesn’t leave much time for anything else. And it’s going to just become tougher (homecoming float building, barndance, extra online courses to fulfill my dual degree requirements, and the overlap of fall and winter sports…) Yeah. Sounds exciting doesn’t it?

I’ve been REALLY excited about football season though! We were finally ranked / receiving votes so it’s been an amazing season. With one more win, we will be bowl-bound! But not to get ahead of myself here, no matter what, NOBODY thought we would even be 5-2 at this point in the season. Week 8 is just around the corner now so I can’t wait for Michigan and UCLA! (Cal was SO close to #1, but hey! at least the Rose Bowl is still looking great for my favorite golden bears!) Sadly though, basketball season is starting up which I hate ’cause that always means it’s the end of the football season. And it’s nearing the end of baseball season. Cubs have done extremely well and Giants are finally rid of Bonds next season :) Some one take me to Wrigley and Fenway!

Enough about sports…

The semester is halfway done with and my grades aren’t exactly where I want them to be. But I’ve been learning to study more lately so I should be able to have something decent by the end of the semester (hopefully…if I wanna keep my James Scholar Honors status. haha).
