Dead Week

Maybe it is the end of the year banquets with free food (the steak last night was very yummy college of Ag). Maybe the green buds starting to appear on the tree outside my window. Maybe it is the flip flops that have come out of hiding to give way to give way to those ghostly looking toes. Or maybe it is the many final projects, papers, and exams that are starting to give way to that happy time of year...FINALS WEEK!! That is right my friends and fellow readers, next week is Utah State's infamous finals week, which means that we are currently in "dead week".

Dead Week is exactly opposite of what it means. I mean, when you think of the word, you think nice and easy. A relaxing break right? NOT! Dead Week is appropriately named after the way you feel come Friday - Dead Tired! Oh how I wish that dead week was nice and relaxing, that there were no presenations, no final papers due, and no assignments to worry about! Alas, that is a dream and here I am - Thursday of dead week, dead tired already, and still have one more day to go.

Did I mention that Saturday Morning I have to take the Praxis too? Lovely national test people have to set it up the weekend before finals...grrrr.

Eight more days....Eight more days....Eight more days....Eight more days...

In Honor...

In Honor of the 44th President of the United States, Baskin-Robbins Ice Creamhas issued a new flavor, " Barocky Road ."
Barocky Road is a blend of half Vanilla, half Chocolate, and surrounded byNuts and Flakes.
The Vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied asan ingredient.
The Nuts and Flakes are all very bitter and hard to swallow.
The Cost is $100. per scoop.
When purchased, it will be presented to you in a large beautiful cone, butthen the Ice Cream is taken away and given to the person in line behind you.
Thus you are left with an empty wallet, no change, holding an empty cone,with no hope of getting any Ice Cream.
Aren't you feeling stimulated?

It's almost here!

Paul is really getting down to the wire now as we have two more weeks of classes and then finals. He has his cap and gown, completed his grad packet six months ago, and four years of college will be wrapped up on one day!

His graduation is set to take place on Saturday, May 2. The graduates will assemble on the quad at 8:30 and walk to the Spectrum where they will be addressed as a whole. Then they will be dismissed as the various colleges will have their own individual ceremonies on campus throughout the day. Being in the Huntsman School of Business, Paul's graduation will be in the Spectrum at 2:00pm. If it tells you how short it will be, the next college starts theirs in the Spectrum at 4:00pm!
