It has been way too long but I’m almost finished with my last paper of the semester. I’ve been working on a research paper on Congress and their powers in foreign policy. U.S. politics has become so polarizing that Congress makes it impossible for the president to succeed in their role. Anyway.
It’s been so long so I guess I’ll start out by saying that I think I have changed since I last posted on here. I’m no longer interested in going out and partying every weekend and getting drunk with friends. I don’t really know what I want to do on the weekends but I know I’m just tired of going out every weekend. This semester I’ve focused a lot more on my studies and have spent more time in the library on Friday and Saturday nights. For the past month or so, on Friday’s and Saturday’s, I’ve gone to the library to finish all my work and study until they close; after which, I end up going to the REC to workout. That is what my weekends look like now. Every Sunday morning I go to the Root Note downtown to study; it’s nice and refreshing to study off campus.
I’m 21 now! It’s nice to order drinks at restaurants with my ID now, haha. What else… Senate has been going well, I guess. I advocated like hell for my constituents a few weeks ago on a resolution that supported students wanting Hmong language courses to be offered with a professor in the classroom as opposed to long-distance learning. We didn’t get out of that meeting until 10:30 or so, and we debated that resolution for what seemed liked two hours. It was exhausting that me and a few other senators made amendment after amendment and yet, to some senators, it still wasn’t enough even though all we were doing was supporting our students.
On a somewhat related note, there’s been this girl who joined Senate this semester and although she is kind of quiet, we’ve started getting to know each other better and she is very cool. It’s unfortunate that we just started hanging out before finals and since everyone is leaving for winter break we won’t see each other for a while, but I hope we’ll still hang out when we get back. Vamos a ver.
I miss writing and I want to continue with it. Once a week I’ll be updating this.
