Now that we’re back from Thanksgiving and our stomachs are full of turkey and delicious holiday goodies, it’s the final countdown…or crunch time, if you will. We only have one (!!) more week of school and then finals next week…I really can’t believe it. Where did this semester go? I’m already done with three of my classes, so luckily I only have two finals next week. But don’t let that fool you – I’m somehow still stressed out. Life of a Millsaps student I guess.
On a happier note, there are so many fun things going on this week (again, to counter the stressful academic life)! SAPS (Socializing Activities and Programs for Students) sponsors different campus activites throughout the school year, but my favorite is Movie Night. Basically, we can go to any showing past 7 PM at the local movie theater for free (music to any college student’s ears). There’s not much out in theaters this week, but I’m sure I’ll find something to watch tomorrow night…plus, it’ll be a great way to celebrate being done with my biochemistry test. On Wednesday, SYE (Senior Year Experience) is holding a Christmas party for the senior class at F.Jones, which is a local blues bar in Jackson, so I’m looking forward to mingling with my friends then. To cap off the week, I’m going to Old South on Saturday, which is a fraternity formal held each year. With all of these parties, I don’t know when I’m going to get a chance to study….so ready to be on Christmas break!!
On a completely random note, I went to my first LSU game this past weekend over Thanksgiving break – it was so much fun! And such a great game to watch in person as well. The stadium was absolutely huge, and the crowd ranked as the 2nd largest crowd in the stadium’s history – we missed the attendance record by 21 people. Wow. Anyways, here’s a pic from the game -
Hope everyone has begun to listen to Christmas music now that it’s officially Christmas season! I know I have been enjoying Pandora radio.
