Hiking Mt. Philo

Mt. Philo is an awesome mountain located real close to campus.  I think it's off of exit 13 and a bit of a drive but definitely check on that.  The hike is not too difficult and my friends and I had a ton of fun running and singing and generally acting like fools while hiking to the top.  The top has a spectacular view and here are some pictures to entice you:

Our Front Porch

    One could say that college students are just big kids- and that's true in many respects.  This Saturday was absolutely beautiful, so we took advantage of the fantastic weather to hang out on our porch:

A Junior in the 400s

     I'm taking a quick homework break to blog about the 400 Townhouses!  I am a lucky junior living here with 3 other seniors and another junior.  We are all great friends and I am really going to miss these girls when I am abroad next semester.  Like all the other townhouses we have a common room, a kitchen, but unlike the other townhouses we have 2 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms.  The 3s, 2s, 1s, and 4s all have different qualities and reasons why they might be perfect for you.  Here are some pictures of what our living space looks like pre-move-in and post-move-in!

Why I'm so happy today...

     Today was a fantastic day!  It started off with yoga at Tarrant in Ross at 8:45-10:00 am.  If you pay $10 you get 6 classes!!! It's a fantastic deal and the best part is I share the class with only 4 other girls, I get one on one attention from the teacher and she helps me perfect the positions!  I did a handstand 2 weeks ago and today I did a back bend, 2 things I haven't done since I was little.  Needless to say, I felt wonderful after class and so loose and limber. 
     When I got back I got ready and had class- the Victorian Novel- at 12:15 with my roommate and best friend Allyson.  Class was really good as usual and after I had French.  This class is a struggle for me, not academically, but we only have 4 people in the class.  So, at times it can be very quiet and a little awkward, but I still enjoy it.  What's great about being in a small class (like most SMC classes) is that I'm never afraid to ask questions of the professor and we can get the individual help if necessary.  Today I had to lead class discussion on a small text we read for class and I think it went very well.  I was quite happy it was over because presenting is not one of my favorite things to do.
     After classes, it was nice to sit and relax in my room eating (as usual) and doing some reading for class.  At 5:30 was a Founder's Blogger meeting.  I usually enjoy these meetings because we do get dinner and they give really helpful tips and information on how to interact with YOU better!  What did I learn?  How to use titles to increase views, different helpful websites for blogging and general use, etc. 

Here's a pic to make you jelly...mmmmm Moe's 

     I also found recently that I really like the rapper Macklemore...and he's playing at Higher Ground. YAY! Well all the tickets are sold out, so that was the one downer of the day and I got soap in my eye too, but other than those 2 things my day was great!
     Later, my roomies were making dinner and made some delish homemade pizza: 

     Guess what? It looks delicious and tasted even better!!!  Enjoy life, make the best of it and remember "Falsehood is so easy, truth so difficult" -George Elliot in Adam Bede
