It FINALLY snowed today for the first time this season! When i read in the newspaper a couple of days ago about the forecast for snow for today, i’ll admit i got super excited for it – but i didn’t really think it would end up snowing… or that if it did, it wouldn’t snow a lot and definitely not stick (considering it was almost seventy degrees two days ago).
the rain this morning, however, quickly turned into wet snow… and then snow that stuck… so we have a nice blanket of snow outside! I LOVE snow as it is falling and the blanket of white snow on the ground, until it starts getting dirty. it was only an inch or two of snow, but it was great nonetheless. I hate the cold temperature that comes with the snow, but LOVE snow – i guess because i grew up in Canada (actually i don’t know about that reasoning since the rest of my family is not so fond of snow).
On a different note, this coming week is my last week of classes – just days more days of classes! I also have two of my exams on thursday, and i will be done with exams and all on december 21st. As the semester draws closer to an end and the fact that i had my senior photos yesterday, the realization that i have only one semester left at Rutgers as an undergraduate is finally hitting me. I can’t believe how fast the past three and a half years have gone by, and i’m sure my last semester will go by just as fast.
Ttoday was also the last rutgers football game of the regular season ( the bowl game happens in a few weeks). i didn’t get to go to today’s game even though it was a home game, but it was a great game. it would have definitely been nice to have gone, considering it was my last game as a student, but oh well. it may be just as well considering the weather and the temperature – risking getting sick right before finals would not have been too great. anyhow, we played against west virginia university (who has beat us every year since 1994, unfortunately). we didn’t win, but the game was close with the final score being WVU – 24, RU – 21.
