|When I met you I was just a kid, hadn't built up my defenses.

I have been oh so very busy for the past quarter that I haven't had time to update this. What's happened in the past three months?
School. I got the best grades of my NU career last quarter. I mean, they weren't straight As by any means, but I was beyond pleased. Who knew that once you switched majors, your grades would drastically improve? My GPA is more than a full point higher than it was at this same time last year. This quarter's going equally well. Maybe my days of C's are over?
Rugby. This season was amazing. I scored three tries, which is quite a feat for a prop, especially on my team with its back emphasis. I really feel like I understand the game and where I should be on the field at all times. We had a great season, performing well at the NIU tournament and equally well in individual matches. My dad came and saw me play in our last match of the season against U of C. We beat them pretty badly and also had quite a large crowd of fans. I'm sad that the season's over, but I plan to continue playing during the summer.
Boys. Overall, they're lame, especially here at NU. They need to get over themselves. That's all I'm going to say about that.
About three weeks left and I'm back to Kansas. I can't wait. Before then I have a shitload of stuff left to do including, but not limited to: finishing my study abroad application (Denmark here I come!), a fatty book review project that I realized was more complicated than it appeared over the weekend, Earth 101 report, and never ending Latin translations. I'm looking forward to Dillo Day...COMMON IS GOING TO BE HERE!! I'm so stoked/amped/any sort of synonym that means excited. I've been a fan of Common for years, going back to when he was still Common Sense. It rained last year and we were crowded into Patten (ugh), but I hope the weather cooperates this year (showers are in the forecast). I guess we'll see.
