Hello, everybody. It's been a three whole weeks since I've pulled the Echo late-nighter. I've only got a few more weeks until the new management teams steps in and I get to return to a more natural sleep cycle. Don't worry - I'll still be blogging, it's just my ramblings will take place during normal business hours as opposed to the middle of the night. Here are a few of my humble thoughts this week as I send the paper to print:
- The CVC is killing it in the paper this week. Two front page articles, plus they are the inspiration for the editorial. Johnson Day was a huge success, so props to Ricky Schwartz for putting that together. John Perkins and Julie Bruss have their big dinner for the Maine Philanthropist of the Year award they just won tomorrow night. (I have the honor of being last year's winner Steve Erario's plus one.) Dana, I'm sure we'll be singing your praises just as highly after Colby Cares Day in a few weeks.
- Has anyone read about Chalie Sheen's stand up? Just google it, there are more and more reviews of it by the day as the "Torpedo of Truth" tour limps on. My favorite quote was from the New York Times, which said, "the show didn't end some much as it collapsed." Winning.
- Big men's lacrosse games coming up against Bowdoin and Ameherst, against former coach John Thompson.
- Room draw is heating up. It's a little disheartening to hear that most of the best suites have already been taken by SGA representatives before anyone else has a chance to pick. I'm not saying I wouldn't have taken advantage of that rule if I were in the same situation, but what other group has the ability to legislate their own advantages like that? It's a wack-attack.
- Maybe this is more about me than you want to know, but I've been crushing the Lion King soundtrack while doing work the past few days. Phenomenal.
Gotta go catch some Z's; big Psych test tomorrow. Somehow all my major assignments this semester have been due on Wednesdays. Oh well, @whitegirlproblem.
Shout out to Maryam Khan, glad to hear somebody actually reads this besides my mom.
