This past weekend, on Tuesday, my roommate and I went to the scuba diving event down at Park. I have never done it before, and have always wanted to. And I am so glad we went. It was really weird at first to put my face into the water and then still breathe, but I got used to it. The water got really cold, so I got out. But I don’t regret getting in. It was so much fun. I really recommend going to anyone if this event happens again.

I also attended this event. Despite the long wait, I liked it. I got very uneasy through some of the scenes though. It truly opened my eyes to a reality that I have never experienced, or at least, not like I thought I did. I am from a very diverse area, so some of the issues that were brought up I have experienced. But the acting was very good. One of my building’s RAs was in it, and he did a very good job.

       On Tuesday night I attended one of the first movies on Native Americans here on campus. It was titled “Mohawk Girls,” and it involved three different teenage girls, of Native American decent, and how they were learning to grow up in today’s world. One deals with her parents being divorced, and she now lives with her grandmother. One is not motivation in school at all. She fails most of her classes, and seemed kind of proud to admit that to the camera. And the third is about a young teen how is dealing with living with her mom, while her father is overseas in the army, and who also is divorced from her mother and now has another family. All three are very dedicated to learning about the past, and one is even shown in footage graduating from her culture school. The director of this movie, Tracy Deer, is also the narrator, who provides her own insight and personal footage throughout the movie.    

     It was really cool to gain insight on another culture besides my own. I think that more people need to do this to gain an understanding for one another. It’s a good idea to go to things like this. Another movie is going to be shown next Tuesday at 7, in Sperry 104. I recommend going!

Overall, I felt a little uneasy after this play. I am used to the happy, cheerful type of plays, so going to a play of this genre was a first for me. I enjoyed the scenery, and the lighting was done very well. I was a stage manager at my high school for three years, so these types of factors interest me very much. As the play progressed, I became more and more uneasy. I am not good with scary movies, and this play was around those lines. My least favorite part was when she cut off his legs, and the theater went dark. I felt as if I was going to throw up! After that moment, I just wanted the play to end with a happy moment and be over with. I will say that the acting by the main characters was good, but the dialogue was a little drawn out, and I found myself losing concenration at some points. I can’t say that I would recommend this play, because I didn’t enjoy it as much as I had hoped.

Despite the cold weather, Cortland played an amazing game on Saturday. I attended the game with my family. I am from a small town, so going to a big game like Cortland was a huge experience for them. Especially my brother, who I think was most interested in eating the food that the concession stand had to offer. During half-time, both Dance Works and Kickline performed, and both did great. My parents loved being involved in the game atmosphere, and out of everything we did on family weekend, it’s what they talked about the most.

     I overall liked this assigment very much. I guess I could say that I wasn’t very sure of how I learned exactly. But filling out the VARK, I learned a lot.  Overall, I learned that learn better when material is said aloud. I read about different places where I could study better, and how to better my study time. The results said that I should also attend class, and discuss topics with others. I am glad that I took this test, because I know it will help me in the future.

Hello. I attended the guest speaker tonight with the rest of the class. I was a little hesitant, being that I have never heard Mr. McKibben speak, and wansn’t sure what to expect. But as he got more into depth, I realized that I truly enjoyed listening to him. He spoke with great passion, which made his speech interesting. The connecting that he made were also very interesting. For example, he talked of how Farmer’s Market, and the positive social impact that they are having in the economic world. The videos that he showed before he spoke also had a positive impact on me. Overall, I am very happy that I went. I know feel that I have a better understanding of how Global Warming is truly impacting our world.

Hello, yesterday I attended the SUNY Cortland football game verses Buffalo State. Cortland started out a little weak in the offense area. Buffalo was able to score two touchdowns, both with the extra point, before Cortland could even thing about scoring. However, after a must of been encouraging speech by Cortland’s coach during a called time out, the tables turned. Cortland succesfully passed, blocked and ran yards that Buffalo just couldn’t keep up with. With the conculsion of the game, Cortland can boast one more win. Just another one for the good guys.

The half-time show was very interesting as well. Cortland’s Dance Team, and Kick Line performed. Both did very well.

Hello. I attended the Men’s soccer game versus Ithaca Monday night. I am sorry that it has taken me so long to post a blog about it. The game was very interesting. I am a big fan of the sport, so I loved being there. My roommate and I both cheered all the way through. As the crowd yelled “Let’s go Cortland,” I realized that I am very happy here on campus. I am getting used to the ways here, and learning all that I can. I am so much more at ease than I was in late August. The score was 0-0 till a few minutes into the second half. This was until a strong crossover was passed to the left front wing, and an amazing goal was scored by Cortland. Overall, it was a lot of fun.

Hello. This weekend my roommate and I attened Cortland’s bus trip to New York City. We had the chance to see “Legally Blonde” on Broadway. The show was very nice, and a lot of fun. It was a musical, and the numbers were very interesting. Also, we got to roam the streets of N.Y.C a little bit before, and after the show. I had the experience to go into different stores, and food places. I love N.Y.C and so this was a great day for me. Plus, it was just a lot of fun.
