Back 2 school!!

I officially finished unpacking today, and I’ve got to admit that it feels good! Finally I’ll live in a place for more than 3 months without packing up and heading off to somewhere new. I’m sharing an on-campus apartment with my roommate from freshman year, Kay Sind. Apartment life is nice… we have so much space! It’s unbelievable!

My last day at ConocoPhillips was Friday, and I was really sad to leave – the internship experience was really good. I loved my position and I got to know so many really cool people. We finished the summer strong with a trip to Dallas! My friends from work (Mark and Phillip) and I drove down to Dallas Friday evening and went to a great piano bar. Saturday was full of outlet mall shopping, getting lost and the highlight of the weekend… THE GOO GOO DOLLS IN CONCERT!! I am pretty sure the lead singer was looking right at me as he sang Black Balloon… pretttty sure. I’ve been dreaming about seeing them in concert since I was twelve, so I would say this is a good start to senior year!

Being back on campus feels a little weird since I’ve been gone for so long! There are so many unfamiliar faces. I have a lot of catching up to do!!

Today was the first day of classes, which means I (as always) got up unusually early and went to class unusually awake! I listened to the standard first-day-of-class spiel from every teacher and had some delicious Chick-Fil-A for lunch. I am trying to embrace all of this random free time I have right now because I know that my schedule is about to fill up, really fast!! See ya later!

Here We Go Again!

As you (hopefully) gathered from my profile, my name’s Taber Hunt from Arkansas, and I’m a sophomore here at TU studying Economics and Spanish.

Boy, summer flew by. I’ve only been back in the States for two weeks, but it feels like just a few days. Packing, moving into my apartment, and now working on the fraternity house have absolutely ate up my time. I’ve enjoyed it all, though. I can’t believe another awesome year is about to begin here in Tulsa. I’m starting to feel old! Speaking of that, I turn the big 2-0 tomorrow. Happy early birthday, me.

I’m excited for this fall – Golden Hurricane football (opener against Notre Dame should be pretty good!), John Mayer concert at the BOK center in a few weeks, hanging out with friends way too late every night, subsequently studying until even way later at night, and a little sleep where I can fit it in. I have to admit, after a year in college and two months in Spain with siesta-time (Yes, they really take siestas.), I’ve become quite a napper. Oh yeah, Spain…how could I have forgotten?

SPAIN WAS SO COOL. For two months this summer I studied Spanish in San Sebastian, Spain. What an experience. I’m not even going to attempt to summarize it here, though. If you’re interested in reading more about it, go to viajesdetaber@blogspot.com. If you’re not interested, well, don’t.

Right now I’m sitting on the balcony of my apartment contemplating whether or not to walk the 30 feet to the swimming pool…either way I’ve got to order some books online tonight. On that note, I’ve got some pretty good classes lined up this semester. They all SOUND awful, like “Economic Development,” but I’m pretty sure they’ll mostly be pretty interesting.

Well, I’ve decided I will, in fact, go take a dip. Adios, amigos! Check back in in a few weeks once school’s started and I have more to talk about!

Oh, one more thing. If you get the chance, you should totally schedule a tour of campus sometime in October. The weather’s perfect and campus is absolutely gorgeous.

Until next time!
