Are we done yet?

Here it is- my obligatory “complain about homework” blog! Between this week and last week, I’ve had two mid terms and 3 papers to write…and it’s incredibly hard to get focused with all of this beautiful weather outside. I actually just got back my Urban Ecology exam on Monday and I made an 89 on it, which is completely surprising considering I’m a business major and can’t stand anything science related. I can’t complain much, though- the semester is half way over, and it’s only 23 days until Thanksgiving Break! (but who’s counting, eh?)

This week I have an algebra exam and a paper about zombies for my FYS due on Friday, as well as a short paper for my Urban Ecology class due tomorrow. I’ve been trying different ways and areas to study in, and I still haven’t found a good spot to study in and it’s been over two months since I’ve been on campus! I’ll figure it out soon enough.

I’ve discovered that I’m actually capable of doing homework while listening to music, and some of my favorite bands/artists to listen to while studying are M83, Lana Del Rey, The XX, and Imagine Dragons. Not necessarily sure why, but they just help me focus. This song in particular is one of my favorites by M83. You should check them out if you don’t know them!

Sometimes the road gets tough, I don’t know why

First and foremost- HAPPY FRIDAY! I’m SO thankful it’s finally Friday, because I had a rough, yet interesting week. From exams to papers and assignment due left and right, I cannot wait to just relax…which won’t happen until Sunday. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though, because I have my “Get Real” event on Saturday.

The “Get Real” event is hosted by the College of Business for the introductory business course that all business majors take. Basically what it is, is an adventure course consisting of high-ropes and low-ropes courses used to create a team-bonding experience/atmosphere. We have to do it as a class because we’re required to write a business plan by the end of the semester, therefore we are going to see how well we work together as a team. I enjoy my team members and I’m very interested to see as to how well we work together in a physical environment. It’ll be interesting.

After the event, I’m going with a bunch of friends on Saturday night to a “Sk80′s” event that SGA is hosting where everyone is supposed to dress up in 80′s clothing and we’re going roller skating. It’s going to be an interesting night considering I don’t own a single item of clothing that looks vintage; I’m more into it because my friends are dressing up and I can’t wait to see what they come up with.

P.s. The title is just a Lana Del Rey lyric, nothing in particular. She’s the top played artist on my iTunes right now…haha. Check her out, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Lana Del Rey taking the top 4 spots, actually.
