Lake Forest is cut off in five!

Last night we played Lake Forest College and won...improving to 9-7 overall and 4-1 in the Midwest Conference! It was a great match and I'm really proud of all of my teammates! We came out strong in the first game, winning 30-22, but then lost the second and third games 18-30 and 23-30. But we fought back in the fourth game, wimming 33-31 and took the fifth, 15-10. It was such an exciting, roller-coaster of a match! And I am SO glad we pulled it off! Today we'll just have a light practice and then we travel to Lawrence University in Appleton tomorrow!

Today is a light day of classes for me, but the beginning of a weekend heavy with homework. Next week are mid-terms, so I will be spending a great number of hours with my head in a book this weekend. But since my boyfriend and I each have a game tomorrow, tonight will be a homework party for both of us. The last thing I want to do on a Friday night is homework, but I know if I don't I won't have enough time the rest of the weekend! We might just have to take a break to go to the New Found Flavor reggae concert at 8:30. It's a benefit concert sponsored by Sigma Chi and the Blue Mountain Project to help the hurricane-devastated town of Hagley Gap, Jamaica.

My family is coming for my game tomorrow, so I will probably spend some time with them after the game. Then tomorrow night, Phi Kappi Pi (Merriman) is hosting Toga Party in the Lower Union, so I have to find/make something to wear to that! But I figure Toga Party is just embracing the Roman Culture...afterall, I am a student of Latin! :) But Toga should be fun, I wasn't able to go last year, so I'm really looking forward to it. There's a live band and everything, so it'll be awesome!
