Dear Blog Readers,
January is coming to a close, and on this fine Sunday as I sit in the Gaines’ Rotunda doing my homework, snow begins to fall from the sky…again. Last time it snowed here it was before the start of winter term and we received about four inches, but luckily it seems too warm outside for anything serious to stick (so far).
Between classes, lifts, open gyms, and conditioning, you might think it is hard to find any free time. But you know that the good old gennies volleyball team will proudly come out on a Saturday to cheer on our women’s basketball team! Also, a few of us decided to bring our homework to the gym on Wednesday to watch the men’s team have a solid Gennies Win Day and see our favorite coaches helping out at the table (pics below from where I was creeping on them).
Finally, classes have been going well so far! I am #blessed to say I am only taking math and science classes this term, and Ash Meade and I are lab partners in physics and engineering. Basically, this term will be awesome because in engineering we get to design and 3D print a phone stand as well as create something cool for our group project (still TBD what we will do for that), and in physics we will build a solar cell and make a nifty website that demonstrates how it works.
I can’t leave without saying how hype open gyms have been! It’s great to be back together on the court and playing our favorite sport, plus we are all getting buff and ripped from the conditioning and lifts. Also, I think I am finally doing seal dives properly and in Doremus they are especially fun because you slide about five feet further due to the slippery floor. Basically I am just having a blast balling out with my friends and am looking forward to the rest of this term.
Coaches putting in work during the basketball game. They are partially the reason why we come to watch.
Physics lab! In this pic you see an example of Ash and I creating a capacitor. Basically you have some foil with plastic in-between and you connect some wires and it graphs some stuff. Trust me it’s super cool.
