when in doubt, read a map

An excerpt from my 365 album:

#176 (6/25/07) Bailey and I had Test Results duty. While it sounds important and awesome... it's really just important and boring. but nevertheless... we made it interesting. ever noticed that creepy building behind clark howell hall? well now you will. we tried to figure out what the building was for and upon further investigation all we found was this sign: creepy photograph that reads "guarantee of satisfaction." hmmm. later, a map dispelled our assumptions about it being a drug hub/secret lair. it's the geology lab building. who knew? but that still doesn't explain the cryptic sign...

O.W.O.W: Orientation Words of Wisdom

"I am not afraid. I was born to do this."-Joan of Arc

When I took on this job of Orientation Leader... I really thought I would be the one doing most of the teaching: spreading the gospel of UGA, relieving fears and calming anxious minds... but like so many other things in life- I was wrong.

For being a bunch of 18 year olds, they know a lot. Humility, graciousness and fellowship... I don't even know if they know what an effect they've had on me.

The class of 2011 is going to be the best yet, and I am so thankful to have a part in it!!!

It Has Begun

I don't know what day it is, and I certainly haven't slept in what feels like a few days... but Orientation (aka the Ultimate Sleep Deprivation Game) has begun and I couldn't be happier.

This is a picture of some of the OLs and Miss Diane from Family and Consumer Sciences. Not only does this woman own every single piece of Georgia memorabilia, but she also is one of the most friendly people in the whole world. If you're undecided, check out FACS. These people are crazy nice.

Revelation: I love freshman. In a really non-creepy way, I swear.

The Finer Things

Athens is a quiet town in the summer. I went over to the "casa del sol" right before moving in for orientation, and I think Katie summed it up when she said: "Being here on the front porch drinking tea and reading books... I feel like this is what we were meant to do!"Amen.

I never thought the sentence "I love your yellow dish set!" would ever come out of my mouth, but it did, and it felt good. Plus the tea bags had quotes on them...
