Finally, it’s football season. It’s been far too long, and I’m pretty excited. The weather, the atmosphere, the excitement, the game – I love it. What I don’t love is getting beat by OSU. What I ESPECIALLY don’t like is paying $50 for a ticket, driving to Stillwater, and spending all day tailgating in the blazing heat only to see my team play badly and get heckled by a bunch of people wearing bright orange…
That’s all over, though. This weekend we host the U. of Central Arkansas, and I expect the Golden Hurricane to bounce back. If we don’t beat them, I may just quit coming to the games. No offense to you if you’re secretly a UCA fan, but it would be pitiful if we lose to them. Unfortunately, I won’t be here to see it (or fortunately if we manage to lose). I’ll be in Fayetteville, Arkansas watching my other team, the #10 Razorbacks play #1 Alabama. Win or lose, it’ll be a lot of fun and I’ll get to see all my old friends, but then I’ll be heading back after the game for our first fraternity function – “White Trash Bash.” Essentially, we all dress up like Dawg the Bounty Hunter and Larry the Cable Guy and invite all the sorority girls over to dance, play games, etc. We haven’t mowed the yard for a while (I’m sure there will be a couple of cars parked in it come Saturday), and I saw the Nascar flag that will be hung from the pole in front. Should be a classy event…
Speaking of classy, I got to go up to the OneOK Club Level of the football stadium yesterday for a Presidential Scholars dinner, complete with President Steadman Upham – the tallest university president in the nation (reason enough to come to TU, no?) Very fancy up there, and a great view, too. Not to mention TU’s awesome catering. If you get the chance to visit here during any program where they have a dinner, come! The food alone is worth the trip.
My accounting homework is calling my name, so I should go. Actually, nevermind. I left my book at someone’s apartment, so I’ll procrastinate a bit longer.
Tomorrow I find out how I did on my Microeconomics exam from last Thursday. I’m a little nervous, but pretty confidant, too. It was tough, but think I knew most of the material. Since I know you’re just on pins and needles waiting to hear how I did, I’ll include it in my next post.
Really though, I need to do my Accounting, so I’m gonna get off. Make sure and read my next post here soon. In the meantime, don’t fret too much about my Micro grade. I understand that it’s stressful not knowing, but you’re better off learning to cope with it before college starts, anyway. Until next time,
