Tonight Mr. CSS was at Mitchell. Unfortunately, I was at volleyball during the time of the show, and I haven't really heard anything about the results. What I got out of the emails we got, it seemed like it was more of a pageant but for the males of St. Scholastica. I wish I would have been able to attend, because it probably was comical in some ways. Personally, I just think that it's cool that our school hosts such random activities sometimes. I would never think of something like that, but I'm assuming that it was very successful because winning $200 wouldn't be a bad gig...
A few days ago my friend sent me a picture telling me to text a certain number with the phrase "Rain check" and I would then receive a free burrito. Apparently, chipotle was closed Tuesday, and this was making up for it. I was skeptical, but I figured it was worth a try. So, yesterday I received a text for a free burrito.. It actually worked! I went tonight, and obviously everyone else had the same idea because the line was all the way around the restaurant. We waited about 45 minutes, but it didn't matter because as poor college students, we love free food, especially chipotle! My burrito bowl was so delicious and tasted even better because it was free.. Yay!! It was a great dinner, and to make things even more exciting I remembered tomorrow is Friday. I'm definitely ready to sleep as much as possible, and even more ready to perform at the Women's Basketball Game during halftime!
Today in my Newswriting class, we watched a cool movie about the New York Times and how the trust in mainstream media has dissipated in the turn of the millennium. The fact that people got their news from more sites online plus with the distrust in mainstream media from things like 9/11 and watergate. Led to people discussing about how mainstream news outlets like the New York Times is "dying" and quotes like "mainstream media is dead". This documentary movie is to show that I fact a lot of mainstream news outlets have in fact gotten their sources from mainstream media outlets. It's an interesting film that I probably would have missed if this cold I have had not gone down.
Today in Justice together, we watched a wonderful documentary on how Crack Cocaine and how it affected the African American community. How crack cocaine was insereted into the black community. How it's promoted in the Black community, and how it was used to keep a minority group in the minority. It was called Our Lives Matter: The Crack Cocaine Epidemic Of The 80's and 90's.
I'm not sure about other athletes in their respective sports, but I find myself getting drained from my track workouts. It becomes difficult to focus on school work when my body is dead. In cases like this, caffeine is my best friend. I try to balance school work and working out to where I'm effective in both. One can't overpower the other because if one does, I find myself lacking in the other. It's a constant battle.
