I can hardly believe it is almost October already! The leaves are beginning to change and I’ve started pulling out my warmer sweaters. My suitemates and I have already started decorating for autumn and our favorite holiday, Halloween! Mountain Day Singing has started, and hundreds of students went to the President’s Home last night to sing. Floors competed in TV Show themes, which ranged from The Adams Family to The Price is Right, That 70’s Show to The Brady Bunch.
Tonight is Class Night and the theme is Togas. My class, the Spectacular Class of 2011, is pretty competitive and hoping to reclaim our title as Class Champion after last year’s upset against the Class of 2009. We’ve been busy preparing a class chant and getting everyone ready for tonight. Soon, the President will decide to give us a Mountain Day, which means a day off from classes. We have a pancake breakfast then a picnic lunch on Carnegie with raft races, relays, and of course, lots of cookies. It’s a great holiday, especially with the beautiful fall weather. And we never know which day it could be…tomorrow maybe? Guess we’ll just have to wait and find out!
