Boring weeks and relaxing weekends

So this past week was pretty uneventful. starting to get into the swing of things, getting to all my classes and getting work done. it just seems like an endless cycle sometimes. the weekend was pretty enjoyable thou. saturday i went to philly for the first time to meet up with one of my best friend John who goes to Cabrini. the last time i saw him was right before he left for college about a month ago, so it was nice to see him again. we took the train to get there, which was an adventure in itself. now ive been on trains plenty of times, but it can get confusing trying to figure out what stop to get off at. when we got on the train we told the conductor that we were going to the center city stop, not realizing that the center city stop was under another name. long story short, we missed our stop and had to get off and take another train back to were we needed to go. once we got into the city, we went and got my first philly cheesesteak ever. i know, its sad ive never had a philly cheesesteak before. it was really good actually. after that we went to the Philidelphia Museum of Art and climbed the same steps Silvester Stallone climbed in the Rocky movies. after we did that we walked around for a few more hours and went home. that was pretty much my weekend. after these few weeks of nonstop work it was nice to have a relaxing weekend filled with plenty of sleep and reuniting with old friends. i think im going to start something new with my blog. im going to try to end each blog entry with a quote to think about, so here it goes. "Life is what happends when your busy making other plans"- John Lennon

Second week of School!

So far school isnt as bad as i thought it would be. i always imagined getting tons and tons of papers to do and tests to take. so far its not that bad. but enough talking about schoolwork. This week a few of my friends and i decided to start a friendly game of 'touch' football, which ended with two bruised legs and a broken nail. so much for no tackling. Speaking of football, being from jersey i have always been surrounded by some of the most hardcore Giants fans around. Here, everyone seems to be Eagles fans. all up and down the dorms Eagles signs are posted up and jerseys warn every sunday. me personally, i love watching football in general so i dont really have a favorite team. But, i do have one team that i just love to see loose. and that would be the Giants. no offense to any hardcore Giants fanatics but i just dont care for them. yes, they probably won more superbowls than i can count on one hand, but ive been surrounded by Giants fans all my life and i just love seeing them get knocked off there little pedestal. its just that its nice to see the underdog win sometimes. Well thats all for now!
