Regular Bloggage will resume after Nov. 7 after I've handed in four papers due before then.
(This is why I haven't been updating recently)


I sent this in an email to my mom last week and she thought I should post it:
"The weather is getting very boring, because it's always warm and sunny, with no signs of fall yet. We get excited when we have clouds. Some of the other mid-westerners and I sometimes tell the Californians what real weather is like."

I guess God decided to grant our wish (at least somewhat) because it's been drizzling for the past four days (they don't really have proper downpours, and no thunder, lightning, or wind to speak of) and pretty much all the sidewalks on campus are rivers, the stairs are waterfalls, and mud is everywhere because they just graded the big field lst week and were about to seed it because they just finished the construction of St. Monica's dorm.
The guys in Sts. Peter and Paul (where I live) have it worst, because our normal means of getting to classes and the commons is a gravel path, which currently is all mud, and to get to the sidewalk used by the other dorm we have to wade through puddles several inches deep.

But they still don't have real weather.

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve written an actual blog entry. Schoolwork has picked up a bit, so I’ve had to spend more time studying.

So, interesting things that have happened since my last blog post...

The senior/freshman mixer/dance was a week and a half ago. We started out by driving to the beach, my roommate Will, Dominic, David Yano and I went with “Big John” Almeta, the head senior in our wing. He’s a really cool guy, and he actually make friends with the freshaman, insteading of ignoring them like some of the seniors. Most of them are fairly friendly though. We’ve actually stayed up late some nights playing Worms and Doom 3 with him. Anyway, we had a very interesting discussion on the way to the beach.
We were discussing illegal immigration, and decided that according to Christian morality it would be justifiable to deport all illegal immigrants.

Anyway, we got to the beach with the rest of the seniors and freshman, played volleyball for a few hours, swam some, and read the Odyssey. (well, the studious people did that, not me).
Then We went home with Mike Martin (Bog John had gone home earlier), who I knew from World Youth day. We stopped at In ‘n Out, the quintessential California fast food spot. (for those of you who haven’t been to California).

After that we had an hour to change for the Senior/Freshman dance, which was 50s themed, so 5 of us freshman put on undershirts, leather jackets, and jeans to go for the whole 50’s look.

to be finished after dinner...
