Let Them Eat Pancakes!

It’s the end of the semester, and I am soooo excited! This past weekend was a blast…I had my sorority’s formal on Friday night, my boyfriend’s fraternity’s semiformal on Saturday night, and tomorrow night is my sorority’s big philanthropy event! Tomorrow is the last day of classes before we have two days off before finals start, so we open our house from 10 pm until 2 am for people to come eat pancakes all night as a study break! It’s one of our most successful events–we raise a ton of money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which is a cause near and dear to my heart. Especially now that it’s so close to Christmas, I think that everyone is in the spirit of giving.

I’m also really excited because I have an enormous presentation on Tuesday night for my advertising class. My group actually got to put together an advertising campaign for Tulsa Animal Welfare, a division of the City of Tulsa that handles animal adoption and enforces city pet ordinances. It is so neat getting to work for a real client, and it’s all thanks to the connections that our professor has. He wants us all to meet real people in the business so that we can establish our own connections, too, which I think is really awesome and so characteristic of TU! I’ve done so much networking since I came here, and most of it is thanks to the efforts of my professors.

The next two weeks will be filled with studying for finals and avoiding procrastination (so easy to do when you don’t have class at all!), and hopefully lots of holiday fun. I’m so excited for Christmas, and I’m even more excited to have three weeks off of school. On top of that, we found out today that TU is playing in the Armed Forces Bowl against BYU on December 30, which will be a blast to watch! I’m so excited!

Happy holidays to all of you, and I’ll talk to you soon!

Springtime?

Hey everyone! So to follow up on the crazy snow blog from last time, we now have 75 degree weather and it’s beautiful outside! Good old Tulsa weather…after the blizzard we got four days off of school because the streets were horrendous and there was way too much snow for the city to handle, so we got a little mini spring break! It was great! After a day or two, though, I was ready to get out–I had really bad cabin fever, but I couldn’t dig my car out and even if I could the roads were impassible anyway. Finally after about a week we were able to break out and leave the house (even though Tulsa public schools got off for two full weeks!), and life began to return to normal–just with 15 feet high snow piles all over campus from shoveling and plowing! It was fun seeing the campus in such a tight-knit setting–none of us could do anything off campus, so we all hung out with each other and enjoyed each other’s company! It was a whole other side to TU that I’ve never seen before!

Now that the snow is over and it’s back to being 75 degrees again (if you don’t like the weather in Tulsa, just wait an hour), I’ve had spring fever! I know it’s not quite spring yet, but the weather has been so gorgeous that I ate lunch outside today and enjoyed walking to class because I got to see the campus in all of it’s sunny gloriousness! I’ve definitely missed blue skies and green grass over the past few weeks–there really isn’t anything that shines brighter than the Tulsa sun! Most of my midterms were this week, so now that I’m finished with those and finished with the LSAT (I finally took it last Saturday…we’ll see how I do!) I’m excited to get back into the swing of things on campus!

I hope to see most of you on campus this weekend at Tulsa Time! If not, I hope that your college decisions are going well! Come visit us again soon–especially now that the weather is nice again! Tulsa in the springtime is absolutely beautiful! =)
