Its junior year of college and I think I’ve finally got it down! So far this semester, I’ve been keeping up with my classwork [abnormal psychology, developmental psychology, perception, and spanish 1], working [campus job + research], balancing my extracurricular activities [Honors Congress and club ultimate frisbee] and actually having time to socialize with friends and such. The new apartment is great; my roommates and I took a bunch of black & white photos of us and our friends to decorate and that was loads of fun [link to album]. I’m loving it.
This past weekend was one of the most epic I have had in a while. If its any indication, it basically started on Thursday night.
>Chevelle Concert at House of Blues. Went with Concert Buddy Robert, had an excellent time, would hihgly recommend seeing them live if you like their music. Nothing like a hard rock concert, a good mosh pit, and excellent music to make everything feel great! (Link to my concert review) A few fights broke out, but no pit-poopers!
>Apartment pics with the roommates. Lots of fun.
>Went to Gainesville, went kayaking at Cedar Key, spent the night at UF
>Back to UCF for 3 hours, then went to the Ford Amphitheater in Tampa for the Blink-182/Fall Out Boy/All-American Rejects/Asher Roth concert, back to UCF to pass out for 5 hours for class today.
This week I Recommend
>Concerts: 1) Find a band/artist you like that is touring. 2) Buy tickets. 3) Go to concert. 4) Rock out/jazz out/rap out/country out/all of the above? 5) Rinse and repeat. Nothing beats seeing a band live. Especially at a cool venue like the House of Blues [Chevelle was my 6th(!) concert there].
>Stretching: I don’t do it enough, case in point that my shoulders are still ridiculously sore from kayaking on Saturday. Hopefully I don’t forget this crucial step next time.
This Week I Don’t Recommend
>Rocks: Rocks are boring, unless your a geologist or referring to the music genre. This weekend I gashed my foot on an underwater rock while exploring Cedar Key. It didn’t even give the satisfaction of showing itself to me so that I could glare at it. Stupid rock.
