Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…

Just when I thought this day couldn’t get any better (because I had my last final for the semester this morning).. it started SNOWING! I absolutely LOVE snow .. especially as its snowing – it looks soo pretty falling! I love when it actually accumulates and we get a white blanket, but I don’t know how likely that is this time, even though it seems to be sticking (but it rained right before) .. so I’m just going to enjoy it as it falls.

Now that finals are over, I have about a month off.. which I am supposed to spend studying for LSATs, but I don’t know how likely that is. It’s scary to think I only have three semesters left of undergraduate and that law school is so close… and to think that I feel as if I have no free time now – HA!

I haven’t had much time to blog recently, but I hope to do a lot of it during my break. At least the Election 2008 cycle forced me, in a way, to take time out to blog.

A Great End to a Great Season and “Bon Jovi Kid”

Last night was the last game of the Rutgers Football 2008 Season, and it was amazing! The weather cooperated mostly, the atmosphere was great, and the game itself was a blowout. At the end of the first half, we were winning against Louisville 49 – 0! The final score turned out to be 63 – 14.

There was this adorable kid (Nicholas) at the game .. who was going crazy and got really into the music during one of the breaks.. and it was sooo cute. Thankfully, the kid’s father put it up on YouTube, and I have embedded it below. The video doesn’t do this kid justice, but here goes:

In this next clip (Jourdan Brooks being tackled by his hair),you cant almost feel it.. as if it was your own hair:

I can’t believe the season is over! I am definitely going to miss the excitement.. for another like nine months!

Alabama County Passes Obama Day

Don’t they usually wait until they are dead? the Presidents’ in question I mean.. before devoting a holiday to them.

Perry County in the state of Alabama, which overwhelmingly supported Obama in last month’s presidential election, has approved the second Monday in November as “The Barack Obama Day.” Commissioners passed a measure that would close county offices for the new annual holiday and its roughly 40 workers will get a paid day off.

A little much? I am all for celebrating the historical win for Obama (as I am probably one of his biggest supporters), but this a little weird.
