what an epic weekend

I haven't had such a crazy weekend since first year, and now that I'm recounting it I'm thinking "gee - did all that really happen?"

So we left last week with my fear of everything to come, and I got it all done! In fact, my take home midterm is currently sitting in my comm school mailbox with a grade on it -- but I reallllly don't want to look at it. I don't think it's going to measure up to my insane standards. Sigh.

So, last weekend, I threw a party on Friday just for the heck of it. I haven't rounded up my friends for a party since first year and felt that I was long overdue for one. Since this event I've realized that people don't really check Facebook anymore, it's aggravating! The majority of the people I invited didn't respond, so I had to track them down in person and ask them if they were coming. After I did that I thought hmm, about 20 folks are coming, that's fine. It'll be a nice, intimate crowd. Wow, little did I know, 80 people came! I had a delegation from every single club I'm currently active in, and a lot of friends from first year. I don't think I spoke in a normal voice that night, I was too busy screaming in delight at seeing people I hadn't seen in two years. Definitely a good time.

Saturday night I went to a friend's 21st, but only really went to laugh at him lounging on his bed. I'm not sure why he was in bed for his birthday party *shrug*. After that I went with friends to attend a dance party on the Corner -- definitely a good DJ, and those are really hard to come back. And the highlight of the night? I played Starcraft with a bunch of guy friends until the wee hours of the morning (or more specifically, 5am). ..was I nuts or what? 

Weekends are supposed to be a time to catch up on sleep, but I totally shorted myself. This week marks the major recruitment week for a peer mentoring organization I'm co-chair of. Speaking of which, I'm really proud of how far we've come. In two years, we've progressed from a sprawling, unfocused, disjointed group to one that close knit, very active, and much more known in the community. I'm so proud of my executive board and all we've accomplished together. Now if only all the groups my life were this wonderful, I would've been quite happy this year. Ah well.

Dean J, I was accepted and was overjoyous. However, while going through the charade of "weighing my options" for my parents, I came across a chink in the UVA armor. A number of college information sites cite a diversity problem at your school. IT's very diverse, but apparently racial relations are a little bit strained. I would like to know how true that is, because it would make me sad to have my dream school marred by such a problem. Is it a serious hate kind of thing, or a "ignore the guys who don't look like you" kind of thing? I would appreciate input from other students too (prospective and current)

Haha hey, I'm not Dean J, just an anonymous student blogging her life for prospectives to see. There is a little bit of tension, especially when the two students jabbering away in Chinese/Spanish/French/language of your choice won't be quiet during class, but otherwise I'd have to say race incidents are few and far in between. I.. can't even remember the last one committed!
