So the results from Homecoming:  we lost the football game against Western Michigan, BUT..  Steve won Homecoming King and the Welcome Center won Best Display of Temple Pride for the decorations!!  So even though we lost the game, we still won elsewhere!! Woo hoo!!! 🙂  And on Sunday, we had a band competition in Allentown.  Every year, Allentown hosts the Collegiate Band Festival and Temple goes every other year.  Despite the rainy weather, the show was still great!  It was a good time.

Nothing else is really new.  Still getting killed with homework and papers.  My Aunt Sheila is arriving in Philly tonight and she is staying with my mom for the next week at home. She lives in Kythera, Greece with her husband and they’re visiting over here for a while.  I’m so excited to see her again!!  And I’m even more excited that I’m visiting her at her home in Greece once I’m done my program in Paris!!  Woot!  Other than that, not much else is going on… so I shall write more when I’ve got more!

I think the title says it best.  This is Homecoming week here for Temple.  One of my favorite times every year.  There are all kinds of events every day of the week.  For example, tomorrow Main Campus Program Board is coming around to judge all the offices of Temple that decorated their rooms with Temple stuff.  We decorated the Welcome Center today and it is looking pretty good!!  I’ll post pics at the end.  Then the week finishes with our football game on Saturday at 2pm at Lincoln Financial Field.  We’re playing Western Michigan so I’m hoping we’ll win (although DiMichele is out now..).  

Anyway, it’s a very exciting time, and one of my good friends, Steve, is running for Homecoming King!!  He already made the court and the voting starts tomorrow.  I’m really hoping he gets it!!  It will be a close race, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed. 

Besides that, I’ve been so busy with classes.  I’m getting slammed with a lot of reading and tests/quizzes.  Tomorrow I have my first Spanish test, and I’m pretty nervous about it!  Lots of studyin’ to do.  I’m gonna go start on that now, haha.  More later!! Peace.
