The MIDTERMS have FINALLY ended!!!! And the first thing I did
was pass out...and when I woke up, I felt like my brain resembled
more of the puddies from Power Rangers than the thing we dissected

A question came via email last weekend and I'd like to help you

under a rock and sitting in the corner of class with a scowl on
your face (no offense if that's your style;) you will meet plenty
of friends at National. However, if you are looking for a roommate

If you have your heart set for off-campus living, there are A LOT
of apartments within 1 mile of campus. Google and your telephone
will help narrow your list.
On a side note, Tri Games is this Friday and dodge ball is the
game of choice! Search my old posts for an explanation of past Tri
Games. I've been practicing dodging wrenches all week at Average
Joe's Gym. Ya, I'm ready.
Talk to y'all next week,
