All Girls School

The other night, someone asked me how I could've stood to go to an all girls school. Others in past have made fun of girls who went to an all girls school. And I was thinking about how much I loved going to an all girls school.

This sounds cliche, but I really think Mount was a huge part of who I've become. For one thing, I don't think I could be as confident and unintimidated in a major dominated by males, had it not been for Mount.

Like most (i won't say all) girls I went to high school with, if given a choice, I don't think I'd of gone elsewhere. Seriously.

Mount was A LOT of fun, too, cept for that Irish math teacher of mine. I'd love to throw my soon to be BS in Civil Engineering in his face.

Thanks mom and dad!

Another Wednesday Done

So, since all that goes on in my life these days is studying, here's what's up.

Transportation Midterm last wed-84%
Hydraulics test-99%
I had a strucutal analysis test today, i either got a low B or high C...this is why I want to design intersections rather than bridges or buildings.

I'm sleeppyyyy. I was up til about 2:30 studying. Oh, and our test we have during our "lab" session, it's THREE hours long. So, I took a 3 hour test today.

I'm really excited for iTunes New Music Tuesday next week, cause these guys I know Band SCHOOL BOY HUMOR, is having their first album put out! They're 5 guys from Little Rock, my age. One I was in Civil Engineering with, another I went to high school with. Last winter they all quit school to go on tour, they had record labels looking at them, and they got signed...last march I do believe, by VAGRANT, who is DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL's label. They've worked really hard and they're really good! Those of you who read this though, probaly wouldn't like their music. They use to be more of the punkish rock, but when they got signed they moved for popish punk, they really want to be kinda like the Jonas Brothers, a Disney Channel band, the crowd they're after is the 13-16 age range. Some of their songs they've redone the lyrics to help attract this crowd, getting rid of any cursing ect.

ugh. school sucks. I need thanksgiving. I just need a long break of having to do NOTHING. Christmas break I'm really ready for, working and making money. AND NO STUDYING.

Ok, i'm done ranting now. off to do my final review of transportation engineering....

Patting Myself on the Back

Well, I'm feeling pretty proud of myself right now. (sorry this is so long)

Back at the beginning of the school year I was a Gamma Chi for Rrecruitment. A Gamma Chi is like a rush counselor, sometimes called Rho Chis, or Pi Chi's, different things in different places. Anyway, it's like a big deal to be one here because literally 100's of girls apply. They usually pick you because you're easy to relate to, are outgoing, good leadership skills, ect. I was totally thrilled to get to do this, not to mention it's wayyyy bettterrr than being in the house!

we all have a group of anywhere from 10-15 girls. I had a group of 11. An amazing group I might say. None of them were ever rude to me, none of them made rude comments about other houses or anything, and they were all really positive throughout the whole process. The main goal of a Gamma Chi is to get girls to just GO GREEK, no matter what house. (we had to disaffiliate from our houses...hardest thing EVER. I missed everyone sooo much). So naturally some girls get upset because they got cut from the "better" houses, and want to drop out of recruitment. I'd been pretty successful throughout recruitment and had my girls all staying. But everytime one wanted to drop they did it through a text message telling me they were already leaving town, so I couldn't talk them out of it, very discouraging. By the day of pref night, I only had one girl quit. On prefnight one girl is terribly upset, because all she had left were two houses she didn't want, my house, and another. Both VERY GOOD on campus, but she had some influential friends who thought they weren't. I talked her into going to the pref parties since she was already dressed up, and she never knew, she might change her mind about them. She went. That night, she called me and told me she decided to drop, I encouraged her to come to bidday the next day and to really think about it (she did sign a pref card), and to just go to bidday and she might really love the house. The next morning I was sad to find out she was not going to come. I had a BID CARD to the house she prefed.

I never heard from her, but for some reason I'd kept her bidcard. Last weekend someone sees her and informs me she ended up accepting the bid! So...I message her on facebook asking if she did and if she wanted her bid card. She told me she meant to call me but was still really unsure about it at first. But she ended up going and loving it! I really feel like I had a part in that. All through recruitment I'd told the girls, no matter where you go, you're going to love it and have soo much fun. I'd told them being greek is an amazing experience, and it's really about the greek system as a whole rather than the indivduals. Although houses get competetive and stuff, being a gamma chi has really made me have a different outlook on greek life and it's about all the houses, fraternities and sororites, coming together!

No matter the letters, greeks do it better!

Breaking Dawn??

I finished reading "Eclipse" about 30 minutes ago....and I'm DYING to start Breaking Dawn. My parents were going to get it for me for christmas, but I REALLY don't think I can wait that long! It only takes me a week to finish out each book! I may have to just read some more Nicholas Sparks books till then. Suspense is good, I waited YEARS for each Harry Potter book.

I should probaly go to bed. I'm back to having my 8:30 class again. Ha, but in a couple weeks I don't have my last class of the day for awhile. Ohhh having teachers who are researchers.

It's October?? Whens daylight savings? I'm looking forward to that extra hour sleep.

Relaxing Week

Goodness, I just got done watching a show on TLC about little girl beauty pageants. Ridiculous...I don't care how many of those mom's say they're just having fun, a FOUR YEAR OLD getting a spray tan??? Seriously? and "flippers" fake teeth to wear for when you've lost your teeth because you are only 5 years old and have baby teeth.

I've been enjoying my easy week. I've napped everyday. I haven't read as much as I'd like though.

Not looking forward to the football game this weekend. I'm sitting in a box with some friends though, so that'll make it more bearable! The Alley' case you're wondering, Dad. Standing in the heat in the student section while getting you're asses kicked doesn't exactly call for a grand time.

I'm's 1 am...i should go to bed. I think I'll read instead. No class till 11.
