Well it’s my last blog entry of the semester and I have had a busy couple of weeks. As classes wind down to a close it seems like I have gotten caught up in studying for finals like everyone else, however I have still had time for some fun as well. The basketball teams have looked great so far. Of course I like a close game, but 50 point blowouts are always fun to cheer for as well. I look forward to the rest of the season. Tutoring for the middle school has also continued to go well, as I have now got to know some of the kids pretty well. I found out it’s extremely gratifying when a student comes back the next day with a good grade on a subject you tutored them in.
I also am looking forward to the telethon the Quality Leaders are hosting that will be on PBS. I haven’t actually been to one, but I have heard only good things about it, and of course a good cause will be helped. I also played a game early this month called bongo ball. Probably one of the best games ever invented. Apparently, bongo ball is where you get nurf footballs, and fire them at your friends with high powered CO2 rifles. Oh, and there are inflatable obstacles all across the gym laid out to hide behind. My crowning achievement was to win a three on three match against one of the instructors teams… even if the other instructor was on mine.
Lastly, I’m super stoked for Christmas! Besides the obvious fact that everyone loves the holidays, I’m making a special trip to go snowboarding with a friend that has been living it up in California. I’m looking forward to showing him that cold can’t be all bad. So be jolly everyone, and happy holidays!
