One last post :)

Hi LC readers!
I begged the Office of Public Affairs to allow me one last post! This summer has been quite busy and exciting, so I felt the need to document a few things:

On Saturday, we had a blast playing games outside and hanging out [...]

Cactus Cafe Human Chain

Blogging is about all I can do today — I’m at home sick with ‘flu-like symptoms’. After watching last night’s Glee episode 3 times (yes the Madonna one!), I figured I should catch up on some blogging!
Today is the Cactus Cafe Public Forum with my former professor Dr. Juan Gonzalez: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=101829076527435&index=1. I wish I could be there, [...]

Collin and I needed some time away from all the craziness of life, so we decided to hike Enchanted Rock at sunrise on Saturday. The hike is not very [...]

John Mayer, 7.5 years in the waiting

In August 2002 (my freshman year at UT), I had tickets to see John Mayer at The Backyard, a FANTASTIC outdoor music venue. My friend Megan and I were stoked about going to a big concert our first week in Austin. Well… then we joined Longhorn Band, had rehearsal all week and had to sell our tickets. Of [...]
