I am so excited about Todd Carey tonight! I just checked out his music for the first time today and I am so glad I did! I was planning on going shopping in Oshkosh after practice tonight, but I am definitely going to go see Todd Carey tonight!!!
Check out his website: http://www.myspace.com/toddcarey
With all the awesome events going on, this week is sure to rock!

What a hectic couple of last days it has been! I don't even know where to begin! Let's see...a quick re-cap of the weekend: Friday night we had our conference opener against Monmouth College (we lost 3-1), but Saturday afternoon we had another conference game, against Illinois College (we won that one 3-0!) and afterward we had a potluck/grill-out with all of the parents! It was delicious! Sunday was a day of studying, all day. So was yesterday. Today I have two exams; I already took my Spanish one and I am off to take my Research Design and Statistics one in 15 minutes!
I have come to the conclusion that exams and projects come in cycles, so when I have one exam, chances are I will have another exam or some other big project due the same week. This is one of those weeks! But after today it should be all downhill! We don't have a volleyball game tonight, so I am able to go to the SMAC meeting at 8 p.m. and it's Homecoming Week so we'll have a lot to talk about! Other than the SMAC meeting, tonight I am going to catch up on sleep! No more 4-hours-of-sleep nights! :)

Tonight is also the Equestrian Club's kick-off event: wagon rides and a BBQ at Cedar Ridge! I really want to go to that (plus my roommate, Jess, is the president and founder of the club!), so I am going to try and talk my boyfriend, Damico, into going after practice! He's usually pretty tired after football practice, but how can you turn down BBQ and a wagon ride? :) I can't wait!
But if we decide not to do the wagon ride and BBQ, there's always the Iron Chef Cooking competition! Sponsored by Residence Life, the 4th Annual Iron Chef Cooking Competition involves whipping up a tasty creation with a secret ingredient in only 30 minutes! I don't know that I could cook, but it would be interesting to see what some of the chefs come up with!

Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) is making Red Hawk Nation fan t-shirts for volleyball and they're supposed to be in tonight, so I can't wait to see them! I ordered one for me, and also for my mom, dad, and sister! I think they are such a great idea and a good way to get fans! :)
So most of my evening will be taken up with my game tonight, but after thatI have some homework to do and then hopefully I can watch a movie, or even go to bed early!

Saturday I had two more matches, at we lost our 10 a.m. match against UW-River Falls, but won our 2 p.m. match against Martin Luther. Our last match went to five games, so we didn't finish playing until 4:45 p.m. I was bummed I didn't get to play in the frisbee golf tournament, or see any of my boyfriend, Damico's football game, but I made him a sign before the game, so he was pretty happy about that. :) After the tournament, my mom and I went out to dinner at Big Stella's with Damico and his dad. It was fabulous! We also managed to take a few pictures by some of the Septemberfest decorations! After dinner my mom helped me unpack, and then she left for Minnesota. I took a nap, then spent the night with friends.
After brunch on Sunday (my favorite meal of the week!), Jess and I went to the Fox River Mall in Appleton to do a little shopping. The trip was definitely successful! That mall is overwhelming! We stopped at Taco Bell when we got back to Ripon around 6:15 and then Jess had to go to Youth Group while I unpacked and worked on homework. I didn't have very much homework and I was able to get to bed before midnight!! :D
Today should be a busy day, and I have a volleyball game tomorrow night, so I have to work ahead on homework for tomorrow too. I have class until noon, lab from 1-4, practice from 4:30-5:45, and I'm also on a Marketing Advisory Committee, through the office of Marketing and Publications, and we have our first meeting today, but I think I'll have to miss it due to practice. Mondays are just insane!

Today I only have chemistry and latin, so I'm half-done with my classes for the day! I am done with class at noon, work from 1-2 and then I'll be a hermit for the rest of the day: studying for chem and only taking a break for volleyball practice.
Wednesday, September 12, 2007
As for today, though, I already had Chem, from 8-8:50, next I have Spanish from 10:10-11, followed by Research Design and Statistics from 11:15-12, then it's an hour (for napping!) and I work again from 1-3! Volleyball practice at 4:15, dinner, studying, and a volleyball dessert night at one of the captain's apartments! I'm excited, it will be a nice study break! And hopefully I can get to bed at a decent time, and work on this enormous sleep-debt I've accumulated this past week!

Today is also a blood drive on campus, so I might have to stop by that too! Good thing I only had a fake tatoo! :)

I think that is great advice! And I can't wait to hear more tonight! Harlan also plays the guitar, and includes a lot of audience participation, along with a unique brand of humor, he is sure to be a hit tonight!

Yesterday we had a game at Wisconsin Lutheran Collge, in Milwaukee. We won pretty handily in three games: 30-22, 30-15, 30-23. I finished with 1 kill, 3 aces, 5 digs, and 2 blocks. It was a pretty short night, so we stopped at Wendy's for some dinner before coming back to Ripon. I finished up some homework when we got home, and went to bed, trying to get rid of this little cold I have! We don't have a game until next Tuesday, so hopefully I'll be healthy and caught up on sleep by then! :)

Today has been tiring so far, and tonight I'm finishing up homework for tomorrow, but also working ahead on my homework for Wednesday. We leave tomorrow afternoon at 3:45, so I will actually have to get out of my Research Design and Statistics Lab 15 minutes early, and will be busy all night, so I must labor hard tonight!
