What I'm Thankful For

- Taking x3 longer on my reading, but still having time to play Settlers of Cattan & Spades
- Not being stuck in a tower my whole life because of having magical healing hair
- Being in the b-school to legitimately eat at the Olin Thanksgiving Lunch (CANDIED YAMS!)
- Not crashing my car during our White Thanksgiving in STL
- Parents who are getting me a Nikon D90! (and their love and support in general)
- You reading my blog :)

Lessons from the DJ

CSA/TSO Formal Nov. 20, 2010 @ Maggianos

- Love is in the air!
- I was reunited with my beloved Rigatoni D after a long 24 hours apart
- Dancing and fist pumping with the people I love
- Secretly discovering the identity of Big Baller

I learned a lesson from the DJ tonight. You see, this DJ is talented and knows how to use his turntable. However, he was a HORRIBLE DJ. The songs he selected would not have been songs that people would request at a dance; he didn't actually play people's requested songs (including my Party in the USA); he would randomly slow a song down and speed it up; he would stop the song abruptly so there would be silence for a second. Worst of all, he actually played good dance songs at one point but mashed them all up into "*mumble jumble* BABY BABY BABY OHHHH *mumble jumble mumble jumble* TIK TOK *mumble jumble*". This goes to show that having skills/talent does not mean anything unless used appropriately.

Epic Weekend

Last year we were worried that ACF intramural sports would die out this year because most of our dedicated athletes would graduate. Who would've knew that both our Co-ed Frisbee and Men's Football would make it to the finals? AND that our IM Frisbee team would be CHAMPIONS?! AHHHHHHH. I never imagined that I would get to leave WashU with a IM Championship t-shirt. Didn't even put it on my bucket list! So. Great.

This is a good reminder that God can equip even the weak to be strong.

Yesterday was also our second time participating in Dance Marathon. Last year we didn't really know what to expect, but this year we were semi-prepared for the theme hours. Basically every hour there's a musical theme (Disney, 80's, country, etc) that teams have the option of dressing up for spirit points. One of our goals is to be more of a presence on campus, so we decided to dress up this year. Consequently, we were in the top 10 most spirited teams!

Mm. Another great weekend.
