I feel like I should start off with something about the Office. Anyone that saw last week’s episode will probably agree with me in saying that it seems like NBC is starting to wrap up this wonderful TV show. The new episode was basically all about flashbacks to previous episodes and seasons. This is the end, folks!
Today I gave a campus tour to about 6 Junior guys and 2 Junior girls. Ohhh, high school. I heard, “Man, this place is so much bigger than high school” and “I’m going to need a new pair of shoes for college…this is a lot of walking.” They asked me a question that 1. I had no idea what the answer was and 2. I had never even thought about before.
“Can we bring golf carts to college?”
Hmm. I actually have no idea. You can chain it up like a bike and it’ll get you to classes pretty quickly. But I’m sure a lot of people could get hurt. That would be interesting. For some reason, I can hear my Astronomy professor’s voice in my head yelling, “Don’t take that golf cart down this corridor!” He graduated from Oxford University. So he’s a really funny old man with an English accent. I can tell he’s going to be one of my favorites. As well as my French professor for this semester. She’s awesome. I want to BE her. I’ve already learned a lot from her and it’s only the 2nd week of class! Elle est très magnifique!
One of the things I love about UT Arlington is all of the study abroad opportunites we have. I’ve already gone over to the Swift Center to talk to a study abroad advisor! Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, I’ll be in Leicester, England in the Spring of 2012. If my student visa will allow me, I want to be able to stay with someone for part of the summer and see some of the London Summer Olympics! How awesome would that be? Yeah. I have a plan. There are a lotttt of scholarships available for Mavericks to study abroad, so I may not even have to pay that much. I have my passport, so I’m halfway there…basically…
I’m definitely really excited about our new tour! The launch date has changed to February 8th, so that a few more tweaks can be made to the layout of the tour. We’ll get on the Mav Mover (our bus that goes around campus) and go into Connections Cafe for some ice cream! Yay!
