As promised, here is my real post of the night, now that I know the publisher is up and running smoothly.
Tonight’s topic is simple: current events here at Longwood. First off, it’s the second week of classes, which means a lot of professors are really jumping into their coursework. So far, my classes are truly awesome (and the rumors about Dr. Jordan’s talents as a professor are so true! Lancers, take note. At the very least go to his bonfire ghost stories!) and it’s been great getting to see my friends on campus again. Yeah, life’s pretty sweet here in fabulous Farm Vegas now that everyone’s back at Longwood. I’ve met so many new people through the Cormier Honors College and my classes, so socializing is never too difficult, and I am pleased to report that the Longwood Anime Club has its first 2010 meeting tomorrow night. I’m so happy that I will get to see the rest of my friends here starting tomorrow. Other clubs and organizations are starting back up as well, as can be expected, and old friendships are coming back together. All is well on campus, save for this dreadful summer heat. Is it fall already?
Anyway, I also know that Rep. Perriello is speaking at this very moment in Blackwell, and while I could not make it, I acknowledge that his coming certainly helps raise the political awareness of some people on campus and is a credit to Longwood University.
In other news, looking a bit down the road, the headlining bands for Oktoberfest were announced (still no word on the lesser bands, which is sad since I am not as into mainstream music as I am into more underground rock music) and they are: Three Six Mafia, Howie Day (acoustic), and Randy Houser. The only artist of the three who I am excited about is Howie Day, if only because Collide was a one-hit wonder. Three Six Mafia, a rap act, is great for those who like rap, but it is simply not my cup of tea; the same opinion goes for the country stylings of Randy Houser. Regardless, I am already getting excited for Oktoberfest and everything that it entails. I’ll post the list of minor bands who will come to Farmville as soon as I know, likely in a bigger Oktoberfest entry.
That’s all the news that’s fit to blog about right now, so I’m out!
