Anticipation of Excitement
September 27, 2012 by Crystal Lorenzo
Hello, lucky people who have stumbled onto this post,
Since my last post, life has been insane here on the ridge. I had four...FOUR tests this week (and yes, sympathy is welcomed with open arms). I had Spanish, philosophy, psychology of aging, and sociology tests, and thank God they are finally over. But it has not been absent of good fun necessarily. (Well the tests have, but my last two weeks havenâ€™t!)
To Write Love on Her Arms and the NU Alliance are both going so well this semester, we have had consistently good numbers of people show up at the meetings for each and people seem to be really into each of the groups. Itâ€™s such a great feeling to know that Iâ€™m not flying solo in my endeavors to make a difference. And To Write Love on Her Arms is having its first event next Wednesday!!
Along with NU Poetry Club, we are having a poetry open mic night, with To Write Love on Her Arms as the theme of the poetry. Itâ€™s at 7 p.m. in Gallagher and should be pretty awesome! I cannot wait!
Also, tonight is the Homeless Sleep Out where all the clubs sleep in cardboard boxes overnight, build castles out of boxes and have a wonderful time, so Iâ€™m pretty excited for that. Iâ€™ll probably be freezing but itâ€™s totally worth it! Annnnd, Sunday is Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Buffalo, which TWLOHA is attending as a team with DXE, a fraternity here!
On top of those awesome festivities, we are tye-dying with NU Alliance, and I seriously LOVE tye-dying. It is going to kick off our month of events and awareness. So keep an eye out for my updates on what those are in my next post!
I am also excited about this semester because Iâ€™m starting clinical psychology research! My research this semester is on relationships between depression, self-injury and music! And then, when my research is all done, we (everyone in the clinical psychology lab) get to present our research in NEW YORK CITY at the Easter Psychological Association convention in March! I am SO EXCITED.
Sorry to say that there hasn't been much time for excitement these past two weeks, but the next two should definitely make up for it! So get ready for a thrilling post in T-minus two weeks!
