I’ve been such a bad blogger! Curse my busy schedule! It’s been such a big week too. WE BEAT WILLIAMS!!! Unfortunately I had a big paper for my Abnormal Psych class due on Monday so I wasn’t able to actually go to the game—but I did watch it on TV. Apparently, there were as many Amherst fans as there were Williams fans which is awesome. It was fun being able to see some of my friends in the crowd. Since the team won, they won the NESCAC title outright for the first time in our program's history, and they ended their season undefeated!
Since it’s been awhile and a lot has happened, I’ll just give you the highlights of me week and a half (not necessarily in the right order). My dorm had an awesome dorm event where we got to go into the kitchen on Lewis-Sebring (part of Valentine) and make ourselves a delicious meal of chicken quesadillas on crepes. It was nice to get a break from Val for a night plus I’ve always really liked cooking. When I was in high school I actually thought I would be a chef for awhile.
My Green Amherst Project meeting was outside this week with a nice campfire. We made s’mores and actually called Senator Kerry asking him to really fight for climate change when he goes to Copenhagen in December. We hung out for a few hours and enjoyed the nice view of Memorial Hill.
On Thursday I went to a performance of “Midsummers”. It is an adaption of A Midsummer Night’s Dream where the story is set in a 1999 teen movie. It was adapted and directed by a senior here at Amherst and acted in by Amherst and 5 college students. The entire cast did such a great job and the costumes and music were great!
I spent the entire weekend almost writing my paper, but I did get to have some fun too. I went to two UMass ice hockey games and my friend’s rugby prom. It was fun to go from cheering for a sports team almost immediately to being in a dress and heels. It can be really weird to see the same people you see every day in semi-formal attire rather than their typical everyday clothes.
The best part of my past week was yesterday when my friend Nico and I drove over to Boston and went to a Boston Bruins game! They lost, but it was still great to go to a pro hockey game and see how huge the players are! Plus there was a fight (which made my night) and David Ortiz performed the ceremonial puck drop. The arena erupted in applause as soon as he came out onto the ice. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so I didn’t get any good pictures to show you guys. It is nice being so close to Boston—we left campus at 3:30, got there in an hour and a half and were back on campus by 11:30. It’s so easy to just head over to Boston for the day or afternoon. Thanksgiving break begins this Friday and I can’t wait to go home and relax! I’ll write again after break!
Answer to last week’s riddle: Your eyes.
This week’s riddle: A man had twelve toothpicks in front of him. He took one away. Now he had nine in front of him. How is this possible?
