Busy, Busy

¡Dios mio! So much Spanish! I better be getting closer to fluency as much as I’m reading, writing, and thinking en Español these days. Sure, it will pay off, but sometimes I just feel so busy. It’s a good busy, though. When I’m not doing Spanish, there’s ALWAYS something else to be done. Maybe that’s true at any college, but it’s most definitely true here.

Many college admissions brochures testify to the 3 “S” Rule. The rule states that in college there are three activities that you can spend your time on: Studying, Socializing, and Sleeping. You get to choose two. The one I most often forego is by far sleep, followed by study (I can say that here because my parents don’t know this blog exists), and almost never do I give up my social time, for better or worse.

At least fraternity rush is over now. During that period I spent every waking hour making sure all the new freshmen knew which frat was the best (I may be a little biased…). It paid off, though, as my house recruited a record number of new guys to go through pledgeship. Awesome. Look at me, being all fratty. But that’s the thing about Tulsa Greek life I love – we’re really not “fratty” at all. To be honest, a good proportion of the guys and girls in fraternities and sororities here are those who wouldn’t be in a house at a big state school, but would yearn for a better social scene at a small liberal arts college. Just another way in which TU is the perfect balance, I guess.

In other news, John Mayer is a ton more impressive in concert than on CD. I was a little hesitant to go see him at the BOK Center here in Tulsa last weekend, but my friend talked me into it, and I’m glad I went. Even though he didn’t play “Assassin,” which is indisputably his best song, I enjoyed the show.

Well, Spanish is calling my name, so I’m gonna call it a day here on the blog. ¡Hasta Luego!
