Pre-Fun Until the Real Fun!

Guess what week it is…..PRIDE WEEK!!!!! A week filled with various activities chosen to raise awareness about issues within the LGBTA community. It began yesterday and continues through the 8th of this week. There are flyers everywhere and the rock outside of State Hall is painted with the bright and welcoming rainbow colors :).

In other news, Friday is a very exciting day for all of WSU’s Greek life. It’s the 2012 Blacka Da Berry step show!!! Tickets are free and still available in the DOSO, but hurry because they are going fast. Come out and support your fellow WSU Greek members/friends in a night full of hardcore fun.

Don’t forget, next week is the start of Spring Break! It begins March 12 and ends March 17. All dormitories including Atchison WILL remain open, but the dining areas will not. Enjoy your break everyone πŸ™‚

Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Many, if not all, people think that Valentine’s Day is just a holiday made for couples, but I beg to differ. Valentine’s Day is about love and who else do we love more than our friends, family, & pets? I think of today as a pedestal to enhance our love for the group that I just mentioned.

Anyways, there will be multiple showings of the lovely romantic comedy Valentine’s Day in the Student Center today. Also, you get to create your own Build-A-Bear!!! The movie begins to show at Noon, 2 p.m., & 4 p.m., but that’s before you get to build a bear. 6 p.m. is when you can begin to watch Valentine’s Day in Rm. 289 while building a bear in the lower level of the Student Center (Warrior Grille). The movie will be showed all the way up until 10 p.m. so don’t miss it and enjoy this sweet day πŸ™‚ <3

Fun, Fun, Fun!

Hey everyone, guess what day it is? CARNIVAL DAY!! Yep, that’s right today’s the day where we all get on the shuttle bundled up with our friends, and go to Dossin Great Lakes Museum to enjoy the Winter Carnival. For anyone interested in going, the shuttle leaves at 6:00 p.m. in front of Starbucks. As far as I know all you need is your One Card, so don’t let money or no ride there to get in the way of a nice time.

Basketball Blackout

Hey, what’s up Wayne State? I know this post is late, but that’s what happens when you’re a hard-working student like myself. Anyways, who all went to the game and cheered our Warriors on? Wasn’t that a wild and exciting game? I actually had fun there and being with my friends made the event better.

I would like to take this time out to give a huge shout out to players Stacey Waters and Bryan Coleman for scoring amazing points for the team :). Of course all of our Warrior basketball players did a phenomenal job going against Ashland. Throughout the game the fellows easily managed to stay ahead of the competition with scores like 38-17 & 60-43 in the 1st quarter and 69-56 in the 2nd quarter. Our mighty Warriors remained victorious as they ended the battle with a score of 79-71!!!!

Who wouldn’t be proud of a wonderful team such as ours? Next time you’re walking to class or simply hanging with your friends in the Student Center and a member of the Warriors basketball team, don’t be afraid to walk up to them and congratulate them! Who knows, you may even make a friend :).

Welcome Back!

Hola everyone! How were your first two days of classes? Did you find them with little to no problems? Found out which books you need yet? Did you make it to class on time? I know I didn’t πŸ™ but that’s my goal for next week!

I have goals for this year that I’m going to start working on to achieve. My goals are to make it to class on time, become more studious, and go to bed at an appropriate time. There’s nothing worst than getting up for an 8 o’clock lecture when you went to bed at 3 in the morning -_- lol.

I think everyone should set goals whilst attending college. This is not the best environment to “go with the flow”. Structure is needed while dealing with heavy classes and in some cases a job; some tips to staying on top of things are as follows:

  • Write out a schedule for a week (in pencil would be best) which includes class time, study time, etc.
  • write on multiple calendars due dates and exam/quiz dates
  • don’t be afraid to look for a study buddy in class
  • find alternate places to study like Kresge library, David Adamany Undergraduate library, or even Starbucks if that works for you
  • of course SLEEP

I hope you find these simple tips helpful and enjoy the rest of your week πŸ™‚

Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

As the new year approaches, I would like to take this time to reflect back on this school semester. My goal for fall of 2011 was to better myself as a student; my freshman year was not a pretty sight. I had been on academic probation twice and this year was my 3rd time. If I didn’t get my grades in order then there would be a possibility that I would be excluded from WSU. This was the worst news for me since my mother had put so much time, effort, and of course money into my education.

At first, my mind was made up to not care about school and whatever happened, happened. I decided that if I did get excluded, then I would just take a year off from school completely and focus on my personal goals or go to a community college. But my mother would not allow this to happen. She wanted me to try my hardest and stay focused on my future. It’s a good thing that I took her advice.

I can say that this is my best school year so far. I had the chance to hang out with my friends and do things that I never thought I would be able to do like go to concerts, check out the museums, and have fun at various events around campus. I also enjoyed going to class. I’m still the shy and quiet kid in class, but I didn’t sit in the back this year and I met some cool new people. I even answered a few questions (imagine that!) πŸ™‚ More importantly….I’M OFF OF ACADEMIC PROBATION!!! (dances around).

2011 presented me with a grand opportunity that not only benefits me now, but is essential to my future and this is blogging for Wayne State University. I’ve always wanted to blog, but did not know how to go about doing so. Β I would like to take the time right now to thank Julie Hassee for choosing me as one of the blogging representatives for Wayne State University. Thanks!!

There is nothing that I would change about this year and my only wish for the next year is to continue what I’ve been doing, but even better.
See you guys next year! πŸ™‚

Happy Holidays

I just want to wish everyone a Happy Holidays πŸ™‚

This a time to relax from a stressful semester of school, spend time with your family, and have tons of fun. I want everyone to enjoy themselves, but be safe while doing it. Remember to take care of one another and love ’till your heart bursts with a warm feeling πŸ™‚ But let us not forgot the less fortunate who may not have what you have. Take some time out to volunteer at a shelter or buy presents for some children that truly deserve a beautiful Christmas. And of course, pets need your attention as well.

Enjoy your break and see you next year πŸ™‚

It’s Finally Over!

Aren’t you glad tomorrow is Friday? Some may not be because tomorrow is the last day of finals, but look at it this way…..BREAK TIME! Yes people, after you’re done with finals it’s officially break time. Everyone can begin to breathe and relax again.

Did you have fun at the late night breakfast last night? It was awesome if you missed it. The price was only $2 for everyone and there was a DJ, a balloon maker, and a photo booth. The food was super delicious and the entertainment was superb; fraternities Iota Phi Theta, Phi Beta Sigma, and Lambda Theta Alpha playfully showed out last night by sporadically strolling.

 

Happy Holidays to all! πŸ™‚

The Big Finale

Guess what you guys? Finals are coming up…..next week!! But don’t panic. If you’ve been studying and going to class on a regular, then you have nothing to worry about πŸ™‚ Some tips to remember when preparing for finals are as follows:

  • Most importantly: GET PLENTY OF REST
  • Make sure you eat healthy that morning like juice and a granola bar
  • Study, but not too hard (take short breaks to not burn out those brain cells

Also, don’t think that you can’t have fun while studying for finals. A nice idea would be to have a study party. Get a few friends, order a pizza and crack open those books! Good luck πŸ™‚
