I didn’t think I’d get to go to the game today against UNLV, because all 10,000 seats sold out. I managed to score a ticket, though, and went with a bunch of cool people from my floor.
We kicked their butts, 28-7. It was definitely a good game, and our season is off to a great 4-1 start. Our biggest rivals, the CU Buffs, are 0-6.
This was the first game that I went to for my own team that I wasn’t drumming for. I miss doing drumline. I’ve always held that it is a waste of time, and once you get to a certain point, you aren’t really feeding your skills musically by doing it. I still hold to that opinion, but it’s just so much fun! It’s a huge commitment, but the fun is worth it- and I’ve forgotten that. Unless I’m in a very different position in a year or so, I will definitely be trying out for the line. They even have the same “snare curse” that MHS had: just 3 snares. With a band so huge in size, you can’t hear them at all. (You can hear the five tenor players, the low basses, and that’s it.)
In other news, Chad and I rearranged our room. Pics will come soon. I basically had a desk that was secluded in the corner, so nobody would know that I was home, and nobody would say “hi”. Now I’m within view of the door, so that’s not a problem.
Another college bachelor’s discovery: Target brand “Mountain” trail mix is way better than Wal-Mart brand mountain trail mix. Just for the record.
