Merry Christmas to Me

Thursday, February 1st, 2007

Howdy Blog-Fans,

Well, LET ME TELL YOU… If you have been reading my blogs, then you know that I aspire to be an actor. This past Christmas break, I had the opportunity to be an extra on the NBC show “Friday Night Lights.” Now I don’t have lines or anything (you get paid BIG bucks, believe it or not, just for saying one line), but I was on set and in front of the camera. However, you’ll probably just briefly see my curly hair in the background or something. The first episode I make a brief appearance in airs on Wednesday, Jan. 31st, at 8/7 central. I know you probably won’t read this in time, but DON’T WORRY! You can catch my beautiful mug online because they recap all the episodes. (more…)

Good friends are few and far between…

Howdy Blog-fans,

(Today is not a good day to have class! It is about 40 degrees outside, and as I make my 10 minute walk from the Rec Center to the business school library, it starts to pour! You are reading the blog of a very WET AGGIE right now.)

It was a big weekend for me. I celebrated Thanksgiving with my familia, and I just turned 21 on Sunday, November 26, which gave me a great idea for a blog. (more…)

Howdy Bloggers,

I know it’s been WAY TOO LONG since my last post, but school life is getting crazy! (– Funny thing about college: The older you get, the less stressed out you are about classes, and the more anxious you get about finding a job after graduation.) Lately, my main objective has been to find an internship for this coming summer. For those of you who have been loyal readers of my earlier blogs, you’d know that I have ridiculous aspirations to be an actor. WELL…

Even though I should be a good business major and find an internship with a retailing company, I decided to go with a different approach. Two weeks ago, I went on the AggieNetwork, which is a database of all the aggie alumni, and I looked up ags that work for production companies in California. (more…)

I’M BACK!!!

Sunday, September 10th, 2006

Well blog-readers, I am back on the home soil and just have one thing to say, “I AM GLAD TO BE HOME!” Don’t get me wrong; I had the time of my life, but there is no place like home. I’m going to try and give you a blog about every major city we visited, and believe me, it’s a lot to talk about!
BARCELONA – We never spent more than four days at a time in Barcelona because we traveled so much. (more…)

Barcelona here I come…

I am proud to announce that I will finally be leaving this country by the end of the week to be in my Spanish homeland on the Iberian Peninsula. Well I’m not really from Spain, but I could be… somewhere along my family tree. One thing that I failed to mention in my past blogs is that I will soon be studying abroad for 5 weeks in Barcelona, Spain. (CAN I GET A WHOOP!) But it was not easy by ANY means!

Family Tradition

Sunday, May 7th, 2006

Howdy Blog-Readers,

For those of you who have been hanging on my every word and have grown weary with anticipation for my next post, I apologize for leaving you hanging. For those of you just browsing the page, WELCOME!

As you know, Texas A&M University is a school built on tradition. (Tradition – that’s a word you’ll hear at least 10 times a day in College Station.) Now don’t think that I’m going to start brainwashing your pliable minds about stories involving our 12th Man or contagious wildcats (you’ll get enough of that “hullabaloo” at Fish Camp…); I want to talk to you about making your own traditions. (more…)

DormLife – “Won’t.. You Be.. My Neighbor…” (Cont.)

Now, about dorm life…

People are always arguing about which side of campus is better to live on, NorthSide or SouthSide. I have lived on NorthSide for two years now, and I think it’s the coolest place on earth aside from Hogwarts.

LET’S GET SERIOUS; NOWHERE IS COOLER THAN HOGWARTS!!! :)

DormLife – “Won’t.. You Be.. My Neighbor…” (PART 1)

Howdy Neighbor (sorry if that’s corny, but it’s hilarious in my head!),

I’m sure many of you are unsure about where to live on campus or if you should even bother living on campus at all. Well if there is one thing I am sure of, it’s this: Living on campus is one experience you should try not to pass up. Now I don’t want to discourage anybody from living off-campus their first year at A&M, but there are so many pros that come with living in a dorm. Like… (more…)

RoomMate – Pot-luck or Dumb-luck? (Cont.)

Monday, March 13th, 2006

If there is one thing that I will blame on mainstream, it’s that they paint such a glorified picture of college-roommate bonding. DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE ON TV!!! If you come to college with the mindset that you’re going to immediately harmonize with your new roomie, like I did, you MIGHT (and I stress MIGHT because I do know of many instant-roommate-bondingness stories) not get what you want.

Where do I begin with Boone? (more…)

HOWDY Blog browsers,

I just got off for Spring Break and am not doing anything miraculously fun, so I will try to squeeze in as many blogs as I can in between my naps and home-made food binges. I would have liked to have started this whole blog thing as a fish (freshman) that way everything would be fresh in my head, but oh well.

The following blog is split into two parts so you don’t FEEL like it’s too long. But trust me, 1+1 still equals 2! (more…)
