bricks and quarter and mud, oh my!

Oh quarter system. How you tend to sneak up on me. Don't get me wrong, I love you quarter system. You keep me on track and let me take more classes. If I had chosen a regular semester school over RIT, I would only be taking eight classes this year. But quarter system, you let me be the eager beaver I am and taken fourteen or fifteen.

I feel like it was just week one. Suddenly today my internet marketing professor is reminding me that our papers are due next week. Week five is next week. WEEK FIVE IS NEXT WEEK!! The quarter is days away from being half over. I woke up and it was week four!

To put this into the bigger picture, I woke up and it was senior year. Don't ask me when that happened. For a good laugh, go read the entries I wrote freshman year.

So I did a few things this weekend that I always wanted to do. The first was participate in mud tug. Each year, Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Kappa Psi host mud tug in the field behind Gracie's. Get a team of ten people and for five dollars each, you get put on the bracket. The proceeds are donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Registration is at 10 am, tugging doesn't start til noon. During the inbetween time, people can play in the mud pits. Or get thrown in. There's a DJ and Phi Kappa Psi was grilling. My team did pretty well. We were sooo dirty. I got a sunburn but it was splotchy because I didn't burn where there was mud on my face. I spent Saturday afternoon cleaning my bathroom because all the mud in my hair turned my white shower brown.

My Team!

The other thing I did was paint the rock. Yes, I have done this before but I didn't do it the "right" way, meaning I didn't guard it and it was painted over by morning. This time  went with eight beat and we stayed through the night. We actually had to guard the rock against people a few times. I literally slept next to the rock. While it was cold and uncomfortable, it was still a lot of fun. Definitely something you should do before leaving RIT!

Now for some Park Point news...I don't know if I mentioned this but Lovin Cup is open and amazing. This week Abbott's Frozen Custard and Wok With U opened. I went to both last night and was a happy camper.
