Democratic National Convention

Last night was the start of the Democratic National Convention and it was a good night. First Lady Michelle Obama was the big speaker of the night and her speech was excellent! She gave a lot of insight into her life with President Obama and it truly felt like a heartfelt speech. My favorite line was the one regarding how the President spends some nights “strategizing over middle school friendships.”

Tonight, Bill Clinton is supposed to be the speaker, which makes me extremely excited. He always makes good speeches so hopefully he does not disappoint. On Thursday the President is supposed to speak and I can’t wait to hear his speech as well. Obviously my inner political science nerd is in full colors this week.

Here’s a video with highlights from the First Lady‘s speech:

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!

Today was nice and calm considering half of campus went home for the holiday and extended weekend. I stayed since I had a lot of homework and assignments to get done so hopefully I can go home pretty soon. My days have been very productive so that has been good.

Last night I had my first insomnia cookie and needless to say it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. I had a regular chocolate chip cookie and I can’t wait to have another!

To celebrate the Labor Day holiday, instead of taking a break from work, I ended up finishing all of my assignments for the upcoming week that i’ve been assigned so far.

My labor day celebration! AKA homework! yay!

Fantasy League

As I previously said in an earlier post, I really want to start my own fantasy football league after being inspired by watching the show The League. Well, I have peer pressured some of my fellow RAs into making one and we are having our draft tonight! The timing is awkward since the NFL season started today but that’s another story…

Our league is called “The Sco” since all but one of us live in Resco. I already have my quarterback, Cam Newton, picked out but the rest of my day will be spent researching what other players I should pick. Maybe I’ll watch whatever games are on today and make my decisions based on that. Hopefully I win!

If you know me, I'm sure you can tell which team mine is.
