The Big Event Weekend

I went to the big event this past weekend with my roommate and floormates. Each one of us took turns on the inflated obstacle course, an obstacle course that proved to be difficult for some and easy for others. Each of us switched partners to race against, sophomores vs. freshmen, roommate vs. roommate, etc. A few people chose to go on the mechanical bull, a bull that threw each and everyone of them off in less than a minute. However, the highlight of the night was watching the two sophomore girls across the hall sumo wrestle. Both being under 5'6", it was a fierce fight. It looked like two fat midgets were running at eachother with their stomachs being used as defense mechanisms.

I also played chauffeur for a bunch of floormates. One went to Newton, Mass and another to Providence College. We made the best of the time though, listening to 90's music that everyone knew the words to.

After going through the technological fast, I have never been so glad to have my watch back. I am a person of routine....I love to have my watch on my wrist where I expect it to be. I thought it was interesting that people gave up what they did, whether it was a watch, video games, AOL instant messenger, or even a hair straightner.

Hey Sarah, I saw you fighting it out last night at the big event:) I totally couldn't handle that mechanical bull either. I really like you blog and how you use it kind of like a journal, it's nice that I can still hear about your life even though we don't have 8am class together every morning anymore:)

I'm hoping that you don't come to class on crutches or anything. I hope, too, that the Taylor reading will help shed light on your watch addiction. Louie had an interesting experience giving up his. I don'tthink I could have managed...
