Weekend Update :)


Georgetown Boy and Jack the Bulldog.  This picture is the epitome of Georgetown :)


Me, Victoria, and CF... and Tucker, too!  On one of the rooftop apartments during the campus tour!

Wow.  I feel like every weekend gets crazier and crazier.  Yesterday, as I mentioned in my previous post, was Georgetown Day.  Oh yea, and don't forget another GAAP weekend (for HS seniors already accepted to Gtown.)  It was just complete insanity, but so much fun!

Georgetown Day was created a few years back as a celebration of all that Georgetown is.  Monday is the last day of class, so it's basically the last big bang before finals start.  Everyone goes out on the lawn and hangs out. There are big inflatable games and free food and music.  

I started off the day with a 6:30 am practice.  Our boathouse is a 25 minute walk away from practice, so I have to leave my room at 6, which meant I had to wake up at 5:45.  It's funny because I used to wake up at that time EVERYDAY in high school, but now it just seems absurdly early! Haha... After practice I had to run back to campus.  I had a 9:15 class.  I didn't want to wear my crew clothes to class, so I literally sprinted back to campus.  Somehow, I managed to get dressed and had time to put makeup on.  I was pretty impressed with myself.  My 9:15 was pretty uneventful, but we discussed some last minute tips for our final research paper, which I found very helpful.  I had an oral exam for my spanish class that I was extremely nervous for at 10:15.  Normally we have at least one partner, but this was one-on-one with the professor.  Fortunately, it went OK.  Unfortunately, I forgot to write my composition that was due.  AH!  I literally have NEVER forgotten to due my homework.  Crying, I explained how I forgot to my professor.  She was very forgiving thank goodness and let me email it to her later.

After class, I went back to my room and wrote the composition.  I was meeting CF at 11:30 in front of the library.  One of our friends is OBSESSED with Georgetown.  Well, Georgetown Boy (my coach seriously refers to him as this) is a tour guide for prospective students... Remember going on the tours and the person would always walk backwards?  That's him!  We went on his tour.  It was a fabulous way to start off Georgetown Day!

CF, GB, and I hung out for a while, but I didn't feel well, so I went back to my room and took a two hour nap.  Kinda lame, I know, but I felt MUCH better afterwards.  Everyone was still partying when I ventured back out, don't worry :)  I ended up going to dinner with two of my girl friends: salad and frozen yogurt. YUM.

It was a long, long day.  I was extremely exhausted by nighttime and couldn't wait to go to sleep.  We had practice at 7:30 this morning, but we had a boat meeting at 7.  At least I got to sleep for 30 extra minutes, right?  It was a little stressful of a practice, but I think we'll be stronger for our race tomorrow because of it.  I'm spending most of the day working on final papers.  We have a team dinner tonight... I'm trying to think of a cute Lilly to wear.. Hmm..

  1. I'm so impressed you wear make up to class! I was a total mess in both undergrad and grad school and to this day when I run into people I went to grad school with they'll comment on how nice and professional I look (guess they didn't think I owned make up). Sounds like you have a great weekend planned. Good luck with the end of the semester :)

  2. I wear makeup to class pretty much every day with the exception of Thursdays. I was always told no one gets dressed up for class...until I came to the University of Tennessee where everyone always seems to look their best. I think it helps keep me from getting frumpy.
