I hope all is well as you are preparing for finals and other tests! Crunch time is always hard for everybody, but unfortunately this semester I only took twelve credits. One class, Observations, is over since I handed in all my final work for it, as is my Clinical Participation class. All that’s left for me is Phonetics and Stats, and I’m not gonna start studying until finals week approaches, so I have a lot of free time while all of my friends are beginning to study. With this, I plan on going to the gym as much as I can (without pushing myself or being counterproductive) and enjoying my “free” (tuition!) membership to an amazing Athletic and Wellness Center while I can!
On Friday, EOP had their XAE induction. I keep checking EOP at SUNY New Paltz’ facebook to see if there are any pictures they have put up, but unfortunately, they are not up yet. The ceremony started with some opening words, and then a musical performance by a student. She sang “This is My Now” by Jordin Sparks. It sounded great! My best friend got hooked on the song now so I hear it all the time from my room. After that, the keynote speaker, Mrs. Rendesia Scott, the Director of Business Advising and one of the original Beta Omicron chapter starters, had her speech. IT WAS GREAT! It was so empowering. I almost cried. After that, was the pinning of the Inductees. WHICH I WISH I HAD PICTURES OF! But my grandmother pinned me. It was so cute. After that, some Honorable Members got upgraded to higher membership statuses, and then there were closing remarks followed by a small reception of appetizers and such. It was really nice! I went home after that, and went to the mall on Saturday (of course, I’m such a mall rat) and then I was on a 9:45 bus Saturday morning in Massapequa on my way back to New Paltz.
This Sunday is NRHH’s induction ceremony, so I will be sure to give you guys details, and hopefully pictures, of that!
And tonight… I am going to the movies after the gym and dinner. This is what I’m going to see:
So next blog I will be sure to do a movie review!
Anyway, I will see you all next week and I hope you have a nice first week of May.
