Geeking Out for a Second

by Emily Jasper on September 20, 2010

Several fun things happened this week, even though I think I was even more busy than I have been since arriving at Tech. I wanted to share some of these because we always need a reminder of the little things in life that make us happy. I hope you take a moment to think back to your week and see some totally random moment that made you incredibly happy…

My brother came to town

You know how when you were little, you would fight with siblings? Well, my brothers (2) and I used to fight pretty much until I left for college. Then something magical happened: we grew up and discovered how to have fight-less fun! My brother who actually came to Tech for his undergrad visited this past weekend. We had a blast!

I geeked out with another social media nerd

Like the rest of the real world, when I say anything about twitter, most people in my program give me a blank stare. I tell them to just smile and nod. So when a classmate introduced me to her friend who works at a digital services agency IN Blacksburg, we totally started exchanging handles, talked about blogging, and pretty much did the happy social media dance…while the rest of the table again, gave us blank stares.

I finally got two tricky things learned

You can’t come to a football school and not know how to throw a football…ok, you can, but really, you shouldn’t. I, unfortunately, couldn’t break my hand of it’s softball habit enough to get a spin on a football. Then, one lesson from our team captain, and BOOM, I got it! So I just need to keep practicing so I don’t lose the spiral. Also, I finally got the Vulcan “Live Long and Prosper.” My pinky always wanted to bend the wrong way, but no, I wrestled that finger into submission!

What made you happy this week?
