Weather

June 10th, 2009

Hot and Humid. It rains at times, but that does not change the feel of the weather. In my fourth floor room it is a challenge to fall asleep. I own a grand total of zero fans and at times it almost seems like the bug net in my window frame does not only stop creatures from coming in but keeps out oxygen too.

Enough complaining. I have had some really good days. Those were the days that consist of playing tennis and soccer (both virtual and real life) and watching basketball. The weather seems to turn me into a lazy man. I do the assigned homeworks for my math class, but my guitar has been out of tune for almost two weeks now and the stack of books that I checked out of the library is left mostly unread.

I am counting down the days until I go home. Today the counter is down to 10. I love Wooster, but it is hard having the best time of your life when all your friends are making money during the day and you just have to organize your life without a framework. Indeed, much progress has not been made since last month. I had my second math exam yesterday. It didn’t go as well as it should have gone, but what can I do. I prepared as well as I could and the two problems caught me off guard. It happens to the best.

I am currently working on preparing the public speaking class of next semester. Professor Wick and I are working on some good ideas to make it the best public speaking class ever given at this college. I am also trying to come up with ideas for the ambassadors program for next year, but the weather slows down my creativity (ugh, ugh, excuses, excuses). A third thing I am working on is the trips for the Wooster Activities Crew (WAC) Travel and Recreation. I am still trying to make myself do work, but as the wise man Yoda said: “Do or do not… there is no try.”

I will post the pictures that I took of the construction that is going on around campus. They actually belong to the previous post, but because of my lack of action they were not posted. Some of the pictures include interesting machines like the “saw the road in pieces” machine.
