Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your turkey hiatus, before you know it- the semester will end!


Take care and stay warm, don’t worry if your clothes don’t fit tomorrow- its thanksgiving!


Few days before Thanksgiving

I can’t believe that it is nearly December. By January, my junior year will be halfway done, which means that I will be a senior soon. Perhaps too soon. 🙂

Last homecoming my swim team won, and I am proud of my swim team. We went to Maryland to compete against St. Mary’s College. Unfortunately we lost; however, on the bright side we enjoyed the competition because we all worked hard.

I have been busy due to my hectic schedule, which consists of six classes, my job as a RA, and being on the swim team. I recently declared my minor in psychology, and I think I will hold off on declaring my minor in Spanish until next semester because I need to focus on classes and what needs to be done as soon as possible. As of right now I am doing OK in my classes. In a way I am doing good, but at the same time, being a perfectionist, I could have done better when looking back on this semester. In a dichotomous way I am being lazy when it comes to homework and studying for exams, but at the same time I am catching up on homework and studying for exams. Doesn’t make sense? I think so, but hey so far it is kind of working out for me.

I am not going home for Thanksgiving because the airplane ticket is expensive, and it is only a five-days break, so why bother? I will be going home for Christmas anyways. During the Thanksgiving break, I will work and go to New York City on Black Friday. I am excited because it’ll be my second time going to New York City. My friend and I will join up with another friend who lives in Long Island, and she will show us around. We have several plans in NYC, which consists of going to Serendipity 3 (a must for me because it was featured on Oprah), museum of sex, and perhaps going to a deaf event that night.

a hint of winter in the air, already?

I can’t just believe that the Thanksgiving break is around the corner, it is something I need. I just need to take a break from Gallaudet and do not take this in a bad way! Gallaudet is always very lively with the Common Time (Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:30 to 2:30) workshops/forums/panels. Along with student organization events: Kappa Gamma Bash, Alpha Sigma Pi’s Oktoberfest, Homecoming 2010, and so much more.

I am working on my research proposal and last weekend I got too overworked on it and decided to go out for a break. You sometimes don’t realize how beautiful DC is, rich in patriotic culture & freedom of speech- you’ll never get tired of DC. I walked to the supreme court and the memories came back to me. The best day of my life was when I met Sonia Sotomayor while being on my SOC 150 fieldtrip- Saloshin Justice Seminar. This class focus on the field of criminology and we had so much opportunities to visit every category of the field. We even went to a crime & evidence unit and visited the blood drying room which was so cool. If it wasn’t for the class, I would have never met Sotomayor nor viewed the blood drying room.

Here’s a picture of the class with Sotomayor, and that will be all for today. I just need to get the writer’s urge out!

senior blues…

November 5, 2010

Why is it so hard to get through my homework lately? My mind is wandering away from my readings and venturing to what my future holds. Grad school? Move home? Start working? I have been on the educational track for my 22 years of life… what is life outside of school?? I am graduating in May. Scary! Along with my insanity I have been suffering from a mild case of senioritis. It is a task to get anything done.

Today I worked at the open house for new undergraduates looking into Gallaudet. Mostly with (of course) hearing students interested in the Interpreting Department. Ahhh so young, about to graduate high school and thinking about college. I have been feeling the same anxiety I experienced my senior year of high school. DODO NOW??? :/
