Just Keep Rolling

Howdy, everyone!

Fall is finally here! The leaves are turning, I have more options to choose from when I get dressed in the morning, orange juice is the number one drink on campus, and I sleep cozily underneath my comforter. I, for one, love autumn even though I don't drink hot chocolate, cider, or any other sort of hot drink. People call me crazy for it but I'm an H2O type of guy.

My schedule has kept me occupied at this point in time. I usually like to have a theme for my blog but I couldn't really come up with anything. So, today I think I'm just going to "talk."

For those of you with friends or family that attend school away from home, I highly recommend visiting them. I had the pleasure of giving my brother and his wife a tour of my campus for the first time and the one-and-only Niagara Falls. It was a wonderful morning and afternoon spent catching up on activities, events, people and just being able to enjoy the time given. The funny thing about his visit was that he is an avid Browns fan and that weekend, of course, they were playing the Bills.   When he showed up wearing a Browns hoodie, he jokingly remarked if he should be worried about wearing it and I honestly told him he probably should! If there is one thing I have learned about this area, it is that Bills fans are crazy (my roommate included!).

Eighteen credits of classes is no joke! I'm finally starting to feel the effects, with multiple assignments due in classes on top of preparation for tests and continuing my own research. The first thing my friends say to me after greeting is that they never see me anymore and, unfortunately, that is quite true at times. I have no complaints, I love what I do and I'm determined to press on. I do wish that there were eight days in a week instead of seven, or more than 24 hours in a day. Oh well, it's the struggles that help create who you are.

Like I said, there's not too much to say today. I love being back here on campus. I love my classes and knowing that I am building my career foundation right now. I love the nights where I just sit and talk with friends. I love being incredibly busy. I'm just in love with life right now. I hope you are too and, if you aren't, I'll do my best to help you get there.

”˜til next time! Stay classy.

Autobotss! ROLLLL OUTTT!
