Trip to the City!!

Mom, Sarah and GG came for a surprise visit this weekend! Saturday we went to Washington D.C. to go to the Book Festival and to Pentagon City. It was great fun and it was wonderful to see my family!!!!

Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor Speak on their new book.

The Book Festival was on the mall between the Washington Monument and the Capitol.

Fall for the Book

I have discovered a huge benefit for going to school at a University.

Big cultural events.

This week is Fall for the Book here at GMU. This is a huge event happening on campus all this week. I plan to attend a lecture by Prisoner Activist Victoria Law on Friday. I will be blogging on that experience.

That's all for today, I have response papers to write.

Here is the website for Fall for the Book.

Back to Where She Belongs -- The Woods!

I went back to the woods this weekend. The SJAC/NRA Shootaround at Camp Shenandoah was this weekend. It was so much fun!! I shot Air Rifles, Archery, .50 Muzzleloaders, .22 Pistols, 20 and 12 gauge Shotguns, and .22 Rifles. We also learned about tying flies and casting a fly fishing line. I suck at pistols and shotgun, but totally owned the archery and rifle ranges!
Shooting was the point of the event, but not the only fun part. I also got to see Mom, Dad and Sarah!!!! It was really great to see them and spend the weekend outside.
I had a great weekend... I hope week three of University is good too!

Dinner :-)

Oh the joys of pizza delivery... I ordered pizza online, paid with a credit card and it was delivered to the outside of my dorm! Great pizza too! I highly recommend Boli's in Fairfax if you are ever in the area.

Dorm Room

I think you can all guess which side is mine :-)

Well, I have been to each class once now. I think I am going to like at least 3 of 4.

ADJ 300 is going to be great, I like the instructor and the material is going to be good.

WMST 100 may kick me a few times, but I like the subject. The fact that there are only two guys in my class could make it interesting...

HIST 100 will be fine. A lot of writing, but it is a freshman level class it couldn't be too bad :)

FREN 329 is going to kill me. Lots of confusing material, an instructor that speaks heavily accented English and a confusing period of switching instructors. I will keep you updated on this one for sure.

The whole living with 5 other females thing is going well. I like all of my roommates and they seem to be tolerating me :) I am getting the hang of going to the dining facility at the right times when I can actually sit and eat. I am still working on getting a mailbox...Mail services was a zoo today.
