This week is Temple’s annual Homecoming Week.  It should be a lot of fun!  Each year, different offices all over campus decorate desks, lobbies, and walls with Temple stuff for a decoration contest.  Last year, the Welcome Center (where I work) was a winner!!  I always look forward to helping out because I love Temple and have tons of school spirit.  Apparently the Homecoming concert this year features Lupe Fiasco and Asher Roth.  I’m personally not going, but it sounds like it should be fun.  I’m mostly excited for the Homecoming game on Saturday vs. Army!  Temple Football is now 3-0 in the MAC!!  GO OWLS!!!  I have a video from this past weekend when the Diamond Marching Band played Sum 41’s Fat Lip at a nearby high school’s band show.  We were just there as exhibition, but it was still cool to have lots of high schools see  Temple’s band. 

Otherwise, not much else to report.  Just super busy with classes and papers and homework and trying to have a social life, haha.  I’m looking forward to Halloween though!  I love dressing up as something crazy and going out with friends.  I’ll keep you posted as to what my costume will be this year 🙂  more to come!

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.
